    I just bought a droid x2 and I would like to know how to disable the 'droid' sound it makes upon startup. I don't want to annoy/bother myself and the people around me every time I turn on my phone.

    I've tried looking around all the settings, having the phone in silent mode, and multiple apps that advertised 'silent boot' but nothing seems to work.

    Does anyone know how can I get rid of that sound?

    Sorry, I don't think there is a way, unless maybe you root it. When I know my phone will make a sound I don't want to hear or annoy those around me, I just hold my finger over the speaker in the back. That is the only work around I can think of. ;)

    Hmm yeah i suppose just covering up the speaker will have to do.. I don't have a problem rooting my phone if it's an easy fix. But it doesn't seem like it.. Oh well, thanks

    If your ringer volume is turned off when you shutdown the phone, NO droid sound will be heard when powering on the device.

    Ive tried that too. Even if the phone the ringer volume is all the way down and in silent mode it still plays the "droid" sound once upon startup.. when the 'droid' logo appears

    You can try rooting then change it to whatever logo/animation you want and don't have to do deal with the sound and you get to customize it a little

    Search around for boot logos/animations to see which you like they should contain install instructions too

    won't disable the wirring clicking durring the eye animation but WILL disable the "DROIIID"

    - disable SD card notification under sounds. the DROOOOIIID sound is played when the SD card is prepared. If your phone is plugged into USB/computer it may still play if you have USB debugging turned on.
