    Still didn't work. I enable permissions on everything. I currently have the file located in system/media/notification

    I'm going to install the Tbolt boot animation quickly then, check where the sound is. That is, if it doesn't bootloop me.
    Well, the boot animation didn't show at all so I'm assuming the thing was Froyo only. But...The sound is located in system/media. Same folder the boot animation is. So I'm guessing it really is on/off when it works.

    Here's how to get it working (with sound!) on a Droid2 Global:

    1. Copy the Bionic.ogg and bootanimation.zip files to your SD card.
    2. Using your favorite root capable file manager (RootExplorer, Total Commander, I used TC), copy the bootanimation.zip to /data/local (this allows you to keep the stock boot animation, allowing you to unroot/accept updates/whatever)
    3. Copy the Bionic.ogg file to /system/media/audio/notifications
    4. Reboot and enjoy the sights and sounds!

    I have a feeling it is something to with my rom that has something disabled because the default boot animation doesn't have sound either

    Got it to work.

    This is how.

    Downloaded files
    Saved to SD Card
    Using Root Explorer
    Copy boot .zip
    Go to system/media
    Hit mount button up top to rename current boot
    Rename current boot .bak ending
    Paste copied boot .zip

    Next is the sound.

    Copy .ogg file from SD
    Move to system/media/audio/notifications
    Paste file

    Done.

    My phone doesn't play nice with the boot sound for some reason, so I'll just use the soundless animation. It'll be less conspicuous that way if my phone decides to reboot randomly for some reason.

    What would you guys recommend for an explorer?
    Shouldi just go ahead and buy root explorer or are there others that are as good and free?

    Get root explorer. Its worth every penny. Just my opinion.

    File expert also does the job, but it can be a bit on and off when it wants to work. Has a tendency to FC if your sd is crammed.

    It really is better to copy the bootanimation.zip to /data/local instead of mucking with the /system areas... the phone will look in /data/local first anyway, and then you can still revert to stock bootanimation a lot easier.
