    Default Disabling startup/boot sound

    Is there a way to do this? I've searched the settings and didn't find anything. I also tried Silent Boot from the Play Store and that didn't work either. What am I missing?

    Silent Boot isn't working for me. Also tried it with "extended mode" enabled. Phone is as loud as ever on startup!

    Just have your volume set to mute. Works for me.

    HTC has managed to completely override the system volume controls. Normally you could use the app Quick Settings by developer halfbit to put the system sounds volume to zero. This would turn off the startup sound and the camera shutter sound. However on the M7, this seems to be totally locked down. As soon as you change it in the app, it goes right back to the default. Irritating. Granted, it's less noisy than my HTC Magic+ was (screamingly loud while the startup screen reads, "Quietly Brilliant"), but it should be turnoffable. That's a word now.

    I don't believe my Sprint One has a bootup sound. It vibrates briefly, regardless of volume setting, but that's it.

    Same here, on Sprint. I remember the loud sound it made when I turned it on for the first time, but it hasn't made it since. Weird...

    Silent boot worked for me, but only briefly. Unfortunately corporate policy states that I have to enable encryption on my phone. After doing this silent boot stops working. Even worse, the loud and very annoying boot sound occurs not once, but twice! The first time on initial boot and the second time after entering the encryption password.
    Any ideas how to disable the sound again? (other then finding another employer :-(

    Not quite. I bought a new phone and the company kindly pays part of it. The downside is that I'm more-or-less permanently reachable by email + phone

    Thats still pretty cool, you pick your phone and they pay for part of it.

    I have AT&T. I have to have volume off before boot up or the sounds play.

    I tried Silent Boot on my new AT&T One, none of the options worked. From what I have read, the boot animation is on a protected partition now. If rooted users delete the boot animation it just comes back on reboot. It requires a new kernel that unprotects that partition.

    Default Re: Disabling startup/boot sound - WORKED!

    Silent Boot was the answer for my HTC One X plus. (Android 4.2.2)
    I had to turn Fast Boot option off for it to work.
    (Settings...Power...Fast boot )

    Thank you all!
