    Question Verizon Splash Screen

    I searched for this answer but could not find it.
    Short of rooting is there any way to eliminate the verizon splash screen when powering up?

    the only way to alter most of that kind of stuff is by rooting and replacing it. aside from rooting i dont think that there is any other way

    There is a app called ''boot animation changer'' that works great, you get it at the market...But you have to be rooted.

    I think that app is more for the droid phones. It did not change anything for my fascinate. There are no bootanimation.zip files in either /data/local/ or /system/media/ by default.

    I have successfully changed the shutdown animation. It is located in /system/media/video/shutdown/. I found replacement files here.

    I believe the startup and shutdown audio is in /system/media/audio/ui/...shutdown.ogg and I'm guessing the startup sound is VerizonWireless.ogg (**edit** shutdown is correct but the latter is not the boot sound)

    Did you happen to notice that all of the Sprint animation files are also in there?! That's kind of funny.

    Anyway, it appears that the Epic does not use the .zip file for it's splash screen bootup. If you look in /system/media, there are a bunch of .qmg files that appear to have something to do with the bootup animation and might be unique to Samsung based on my limited Google search.

    On a separate note to everyone, be really careful when you're messing around with some of these files. In an attempt to stop the bootup sound on the Epic, I went in and renamed it to poweron.wav.old. It bricked the phone, because the OS couldn't find that file on bootup. Instead, I am going to replace it with a wav file that makes no sound for half a second. Big lesson learned.

    Not sure if you guys are aware of this app, but if you do not want to hear the start up and shutdown sounds you can use an app for rooted users called Silentboot. This app can be found in the market.

    I don't mind the Verizon splash screen as much as I hate the sound it makes. I haven't heard that since I had an old AudioVox flip phone years ago. That was one solid phone though.

    the sound can be gotten rid of with just root. just replace the PowerOn.wav with one of your choosing.

    the boot animation files need a kernel that supports replacing them.

    This is definitely the correct answer, but I want to emphasize the word replace. You phone will not boot past the Samsung logo without this file. I learned that lesson the hard way after I deleted it.

    Interesting about the Sprint boot logos.

    Anyone notice the boot logos loading REALLY fast? Like by the time the audio for the Samsung one finishes the VZW has been running for a bit.
