Disable Start Up and Shut Down Sounds on Samsung Captivate

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.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
