One of the things that many Mac owners have come to appreciate over the years is the computer’s boot-up sound. Sadly, Apple doesn’t offer this feature on its mobile devices.
iOS developer ginsudev wanted to change this, and as a result, has released a new and free jailbreak tweak dubbed BootSound.
While modern jailbreaks are either semi-untethered or semi-tethered and don’t retain their jailbroken state post-reboot, ginsudev made BootSound in such a way that you’ll hear your selected boot-up sound when performing resprings and ldrestarts — or anything that restarts SpringBoard in any way.
Having said that, you won’t need to fully power off your device to hear your boot-up sound.
BootSound doesn’t have any options to configure via the Settings app, but you will want to use a file manager such as Filza to place your preferred boot-up sound in the /Library/BootSound/ directory for it to take effect:
A default boot-up sound already resides there, but in the event that you want a custom one, BootSound supports .mp3, .wav, and .caf audio files.
If you’re interested in trying BootSound out for yourself, then you can do so by downloading the tweak for free from ginsudev’s personal repository via your favorite package manager app. The tweak supports jailbroken iOS & iPadOS 14 devices.
Those not already taking full advantage of BootSound can add it to their package manager app by using the URL provided below:
