would love to know this too. I'd hate to have to restart my phone in a meeting and have it blurt out. Anybody?
I'll post back if I figure this out.

it needs to be done thru a registery hack

go to qusers.com and read the treads. i'm sure someone will come up with a hack.
it doesnt really bother me as i dont reboot very often.
it does suck though... very loud.

I used the file manager to find "piano.wav"
renamed it to pianoold.wav. Transferred a more appealing sound to the windows directory and renamed it piano.wav and rebooted.

Everything worked fine and I have a nicer startup sound now.

All without hacking the registry. 😉

BTW - thanks to the others for tracking down what the startup sound was called. That pretty much made it simple after that.

Also try not to substitute a wav that is too long/different from the original piano.wav because you may have problems with that.

Anyone know why when I try this I get the file is "either read only or You do not have permissions"??? ☚ī¸

There is a hack to get rid of this sound completley and a lot of the other sounds that are very annoying, such as the camera shutter or the Txt message sent screen. Check out www.freewebs.com/smartq as they have a large lost of hacks and tweaks that can be used for the Q.
