BootSound
« on: June 08, 2012, 06:27:35 PM »
Made a little app that will play a sound when you start up your device.  Simply place any sounds you may want to choose from in /var/mobile/BootSound/Sounds

then open up the app, grant access, and select your sound :)  reboot and enjoy (your sound needs to be up before you reboot...)

Download:

You will also need to add in http://repod00r.com first into your Cydia sources and install the older version of Ch40s-Utilities to use this.  So, if you don't use anything else of mine that requires the latest version of Ch40s-Utilities, go right ahead.

:)

It shouldn't...  It's not a mobile substrate.  It runs using onBoot, a daemon tool thing I made (it's smart, and only on daemon).  It will only run on the start of your device.  But wait for me to fix onBoot (I made a small typo)

Ok Nevermind... I just got it installed but I didn't put any sounds in it... Now that I did, it doesn't show up on BootSound... Know how to fix it? The file types I put was .wav. Maybe it's not supported?

Nice collection, But the names are completely wrong...

Speaking of which...
"http://titan08.free.fr/Boot%20Sounds/o2%20-%20Boot.wav"

It doesn't do the sound justice... I should know, I own one, and this is way too tinny.

If you want the entire collection of Apple Startup/Death Chimes, get Mactracker... there is an option to export them to iTunes...

When you first opened up the app it should have asked for root access.   Did you allow it?   Depending on what firmware you are on. You need to force close it out of the app switcher.

It actually never asked me for root access... I will just reinstall and see if it works now...

I had Ch40s-Utilities before and with no errors. I still don't get it asking for root... I will delete ch40s-utils and the bootsound package and reinstall it. Hopefully it will work then...
