    If you are uncomfortable with rooting, then you may not wish to proceed, but these steps make minimal modifications and are what I used to remove the DDDRRRROIIIID sound (as well as the camera click sound) and then return the phone to an unrooted state.

    1. I downloaded Z4root on my PC, then moved it to the SD Card over the USB cable. After installing and rooting using Z4root, I looked for the "Root Explorer" app that people refer to, but all I found was a paid app that I didn't feel like paying for.

    2. Since I am quite comfortable with Linux, instead of "Root Explorer", I used "Android Terminal Emulator" (you can find it on the Android Market) and performed the following commands in order to rename the two files (droid.ogg and camera_click.ogg).

    Code:
    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    cd /system/media
    mv droid.ogg droid.orig
    cd /system/media/audio/ui
    mv camera_click.ogg camera_click.orig
    mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    sync
    reboot
    The boot DDDRROIIIDDD sound and the camera click sounds are now both gone.

    3. I then went back into Z4root and unrooted. So far so good.

    I tried this but got a permission denied error on the su command. Suggestions?

    Thanks!

    If you got a permission denied on the su command then that means your phone was not rooted. Are you sure you successfully placed Z4Root on the SDCard and ran it with the root option? I used the "permanent root" option rather than the "temporary root" option. I had read on here that some other folks had trouble with the temporary root.

    Still no non-root solutions to this? I've taken to removing the battery before going into meetings (huge bummer, playing on the phone during meetings is half the reason I have a smartphone) for fear of the random reboot and DROOOIIIIDDD sound. Shame on Motorola.

    Can't you just mute your media volume prior to the meeting? I always have my media volume down, because there have been several times I've had the phone on silent, but went to play a game, and then the sound came blaring through. I just turn it up when I need it, then turn it right back down. Before rooting and renaming the file, I never had the Droid sound upon booting up because the media volume was down.

    Doesn't work on the Pro in my experience.

    Strange. Before renaming the files, every time I rebooted my Pro when the media volume was muted (additionally, I almost always have my phone on vibrate or silent, so maybe that had some effect), there was no Droid sound.

    The problem is that on the Pro, muting the system volume does not turn off the DROID startup sound. You would think it should, but it does not.
