I rememebr seeing something a while back about naming the sound bootup.ogg and placing it in the system/media folder. Not sure if it works on cm7 or not though. I've never tried it yet.

and to add to this... i think you'll also need to check the build prop... and make sure it has that sound in there...

I don't know what to look for in the Build Prop i tried putting the sound file in system/media and nothing happened. I've already tried a guide for adding sound to CM7 but it just make my phone bootloop. I think it is because i am CM4DX GB and not the normal on .340

I thought the sound had to be in media/audio/notifications, but that was with the bionic bootanimation. I believe the config file in the bootanimation.zip has the audio file name listed to run at boot time. Check the bionic bootanimation files and see if what your missing is in that.

I got sound on my DX with the bionic bootanimation, I'll send u the build.prop if you really think its something in there that will help.

#persist.mot.powerup.tone=/system/media/bootup.ogg

That is the line that would work with the previously suggested option, if it is in the build.prop. I still think the files in the bootanimation will override this.

This worked perfectly for me...

It doesn't mention this...
But you have to have the file named "android_audio.mp3"
And obviously follow all steps.

OT:
Unfortunately the Nexus Prime animation I was trying to flash didn't sync up correctly...
So I used Audacity to add silence to the beginning of the mp3.
Brilliant!
But...that didn't work either. The Animation was too slow for the sound...animation ran choppy for some reason.

The sound must be specified in desc.txt within the bootanimation.zip file. This is the desc.txt from the D3, which is nicely documented and explains how specify a sound

Code:
<br />
# 540 wide, 960 tall 15 frames per second<br />
540 960 15<br />
<br />
# p means we're defining a part<br />
# first number is repeat count, 0 means infinite<br />
# second number is delay in frames before performing the next part<br />
# so if you are playing 15 frames a second 15 would be... one second<br />
# string defines the directory to load files from<br />
# files will be loaded in order but names don't matter<br />
<br />
# s defines a sound for a part<br />
# sounds will be loaded from /system/media<br />
# oggs with loop points will loop automatically<br />
# only one sound will play at a time<br />
# timing is driven by the part, not the sounds<br />
# if you want no sound, leave blank<br />
<br />
# droid<br />
p 1 7 01_droid<br />
s Droid.ogg<br />
<br />
# eye<br />
p 1 0 02_eye<br />
<br />
# eyeloop<br />
p 0 0 03_eyeloop<br />

When you edit the zip, make sure you repackage it [i]without compression[/i] otherwise it won't work
