Disable Start Up and Shut Down Sounds on Samsung Captivate

Are you one of the lucky owners of the new Samsung Captivate?  Are you enjoying everything that the new high end Android handset has to offer, except the loud Start Up and Shut Down sounds?

Several XDA members have posted about this and XDA forum member jsmith8588 has worked out how to disable the annoying sounds.  He has also helpfully posted a concise tutorial for fellow XDA members – it’s a simple case of renaming the PowerOn.wav and shutdown.ogg files.

Additionally, if you’d rather replace the sounds with your own custom sounds, XDA forum member shaneaus has posted that you can just convert your favourite sound file into .wav or .ogg format and then rename in the same format as the original file.

For more information, take a look at the forum thread.

This could be a strategic movement in coordination with other investors given Cyanogen's expression of rebellion against Google's tightening control over Android, as the custom ROM maker has recently spoken out against the "tyranny" of Google in regards...

Samsung Cutting Bloat, Trimming TouchWiz

Reports keep iterating over the rumors that Samsung has been trimming down TouchWiz for its upcoming devices. After years of customer complaints, particularly from power users, Samsung seems to finally have taken initiative towards cracking down the stutters that often plague some of its devices, particularly older ones or those that see a long life without clean-ups.
