    Thunderbolt admirers that own the Droid X and or the Droid 2 (R2-D2 version included) might be interested in this piece of news. The sexy new HTC device, just had its RUU released a few days ago (or leaked, same difference these days), and now Droid-life has put together an image package that includes the boot screen (sound and image), some wallpapers, and more. This is all in an attempt to make the visual experience of the new generation Droid owners similar to that of the new HTC LTE devices.

    For those who are excited to see this new device, I just want to say I am excited with you. I am pretty much camping outside my Verizon Wireless store to get this and the Motorola Xoom. Sadly, I might be here for a while (Well in Minnesota winter, 1 hour is a while).

    Download this file (MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service)
    1. Download the file from above to your SD card.
    2. Reboot into recovery using Koush’s Bootstrap app.
    3. Choose “install zip from SD card.”
    4. Then “choose zip from SD card” and find the Thunderbolt.zip , select it and hit “yes.”
    5. Reboot and enjoy!

    Think I'm gonna try and tear this down for the OG droid users. Boot animation probably won't be done.

    This is pretty cool! I wasn't aware that any of the Droid family of phones could play sounds when they were booting up. My DX looks pretty good now. :)

    Do you want to remove the bootanimation, or just get rid of the audio? You can simply replace the bootanimation by putting a different one in data/local on your SD card (using Root Explorer), and that should resolve your problem. If you want to keep the animation, but get rid of the sound, I believe there's an earlier post in this thread that details how to go in to the media file on your SD card, find the sound file and remove it.

    Good luck!

    (Follow up to earlier post) I stand corrected - the explanation for removing the sound file must have been in a different thread, or a different forum, sorry. I'll try to find the post and copy it over to here, but I'm getting ready to go to work, so it'll be this evening.
