    Default iStartupSound - Boot Sound For iOS Devices


    A key blessing to having a jailbroken device is the freedom to customize it however you wish. Although not every factor of customization is necessarily a "necessity," the ability to do so if one wants is what makes the jailbreak community a vibrant place for creativity and innovation. One such area is a boot-up sound for iOS devices. This may not be an essential package, however this is a great way to customize your device to your own fitting; it adds flavor and a little personal touch to your device(s). Vladislav Korotnev (@vladkorotnev) has made a simple tweak that allows you to customize a start-up sound for your iOS device. The sound plays directly after the SpringBoard finishes loading.

    The implementation is rather simple - after installing iStartupSound, you must place a sound file in the following path via SSH for it to work upon boot:
    /var/mobile
    Here are the requirements for the file you place in that folder:

    • The file can be in the following formats - .mp3, .wav, or .caf
    • But, no matter what the file format, the file must be named startup.wav (/var/mobile/startup.wav is where it will be placed)

    And from there, you can add whatever sound you wish - totally up to you.

    Vladislav has submitted this package to the ModMyi repository so it should be available soon. Upon release, it will be available on Cydia for free. It is compatible on all iOS devices and firmwares (including all iOS 5 betas).

    Name: iStartupSound
    Author: vladkorotnev
    Price: Free

    For the time being, if you wish to give it a shot, download the .deb file directly from his GitHub:

    iStartupSound.deb

    And for the developers out there, iStartupSound is completely open-source. View his GitHub for all the respective information:

    iStartupSound - GitHub

    Follow Vladislav Korotnev on Twitter to keep up to date on iStartupSound and other projects that may come.

    Exactly. This doesn't happen during the actual bootup, just when springboard has loaded after the actual bootup. It's the same thing as having your iPhone connected to your computer and you boot it up, it makes sound effect that shows that its charging.

    I'll certainly grab this when it comes out. I'm always looking for cool little ways to customize.

    Sounds pretty cool - I think SpringClean has similar functionality though...

    They need to make a "wrong passcode" sound. If someone made a tweak for that, I would use "ah ah ah, didn't say the magic word" from Jurassic Park.

    Will try, lol

    How do you guys think, maybe I should make a tweak that would be not open source (guess why ), but will allow you to assign sounds to ALL events.
    Do you want one like that?

    That'd be sweet! How bout assigning a sound (or sounds) for each time we swipe to a Page on our Springboard!

    You can make sounds for anything that you tap or slide with.

    Sounds for opening apps, closing apps, sliding the slider on lockscreen (not the unlock sound), multitasking, wrong passcode, etc. Those would pretty cool. Hint Hint
