Yesterday, we discussed the second part of our tech giants coming to the west series with Huawei. What people may not know, however, is that Huawei owns a company by the name of HiSilicon.

Droid X Boot Animation Ported, Now with Sound
Recently, a lot of useful things have been ported from the Motorola Droid X. Although, the Droid X boot animation has already been available for a few days, it now also contains the sound file which plays the “DROID” sound when booting. The feedback seems to be very good, and the package should work fine. Thanks to XDA developer drmbdrummer for this animation!

Hey guys. I know this is about and around, but we got the sound working on boot (the “DROID” noise). So here’s how you do it:
- 1. download both files below
- UNZIP the “android_audio.zip” file, put the audio file in your sdk/tools folder
- leave the “bootanimation.zip” file zipped, put in your sdk/tools folder
- go into adb and push both files as follows:
adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local
adb push android_audio.mp3 /data/local
This should work; if anyone has problems let me know.
For download and troubleshooting, continue on to the intro thread.
