To remove the music when ATVXperience boots up, you need to replace the boot video.

Requirements:
  1. ADB: https://androidmtk.com/download-minimal ... tboot-tool
  2. Silent Bootvideo: https://mega.nz/#!CH4REABD!s3T0EOdmcLpO ... YLxjBvVSUA
Instructions:
  1. Download and install ADB on your PC (if you don't already have it)
  2. Find the IP address of your ATVXperience box (Settings -> About -> Status)
  3. Open a Command Prompt
  4. In the command prompt, type adb connect xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (Where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is your box IP address)
    If you get an 'unable to connect' error:
    1. Make sure your PC is on the same network as your ATVXperience box
    2. Make sure USB debugging is turned on in your Developer Settings
  5. Type adb shell mount -o rw,remount /system to change /system partition to read & write.
  6. Type adb push /path/to/downloaded/bootvideo /system/etc to overwrite the standard bootvideo with the silent version
  7. Type adb disconnect
That's all you need. Next time your box starts up there will be no boot up sounds.

Alternative Method for those who do not want to use ADB. Did it all with my remote

1) Download the file to your box, I use MEGA
2) Run ES File Explorer in Root Explorer mode
3) copy and paste the file to /system/etc

You can do it all on the box ... thank you!

Please do you know how to change the boot animation in a95x max (S905x2) boxes?

EDIT:
Proceed as above, under OREO firmwares, the bootvideo file is located in /vendor/etc folder.

You have to edit build.prop, service.bootvideo=0 makes use of the normal bootanimation.zip, same for not having this line... ⬇

bootanimation.zip file locations:
/system/media (android 7.x)
/vendor/media (android 8.x) ???

If you want to change boot image, need to use PC and unpacks the AtvX firmware then edit boot-image picture file and then repackage firmware and install your modified firmware. More hassle then it is worth to just change that still image.

Android 8 and Android 9 should still be using /system/media/ for bootanimation.zip location. My tv box with android 9 has the boot video MP4 located here as well, instead of bootvideo normal location of /system/etc/

TWEAK:
If you just want to lower the volume of the boot video then is just a simple line addition to build.prop =

Code: Select all

media.amplayer.boot_vol=0.5
0.5 meaning 50% half volume, 0.5 is what I have mine set at, this can be set incrementally 0.1 lowest volume to 0.9 highest.

Just another tweak for you guys ;)
