Apple Mac users hear a boot-up sound when their computer starts up, but sadly not for iPhone or other mobile devices. Therefore, iOS developer ginsudev tried to change this and finally has released a new and cool jailbreak tweak called BootSound.

As you know, while modern jailbreaks (semi-untethered or semi-tethered) do not keep their jailbroken state after a reboot. So, ginsudev designed it so that you may hear your selected boot-up sound when performing resprings and ldrestarts or anything that restarts SpringBoard.

However, you won’t need to turn off your device to hear the boot-up sound completely.

BootSound doesn’t provide any configure options in the Settings app. But you will need to use a file manager like Filza to place your favorite boot-up sound in the /Library/BootSound/ directory to make it work. There is already a default boot-up sound. However, the tweak supports mp3, wav, and caf audio files if you wish to make your own.

Those who haven’t taken full advantage of the tweak can add its repo to their package manager app using the following URL.
