Is there a way to disable the sounds on phone startup and shutdown? When I had JF3 firmware, there were no sounds, but now on JM1 the sounds are there :(

Btw, it seems that when I still had the old firmware, I somehow managed to use the way explained in the accepted answer unknowing that it had anything to do with startup/shutdown sounds. I just had forgotten what I did :) – Kaitsu Oct 5 '10 at 21:46

In System -> Sound and Display -> System volume you can set it, unfortunately the power on/off sound is also tied to the touch feedback sound (ie you press a button, hear a sound). If that's not a problem, turn it all the way down and problem solved..

Oh yeah, this was just what I was looking after! I don't want any touch feedback sounds anyway! :) THX! – Kaitsu Oct 5 '10 at 21:42

Try Silent Boot from the android market. It automatically mutes your phone when you shutdown.

But it doesnt work all the time. – Barfieldmv Oct 6 '10 at 8:32
Does not remove the shutdown sound. The silent boot documentation mention it. – Guillaume Coté Apr 9 '12 at 23:49

Try SGS Tools from the market. It has the option to mute startup and shutdown sounds, or set custom ones.

Note: Works on a rooted device only.

You can also just hit your volume key, and hit the settings button that shows up on the right. You can turn the system volume up and down from right there.
