    I have only tested this on iPod Touch jailbroken iOS4, but I don't see why it wouldn't work on iPad or Iphone.

    Here's what you'll need:

    -> Jailbroken iPod Touch/iPhone/iPad
    -> Erica Utilities package from Cydia
    -> Netatalk or OpenSSh

    -> The chime file: http://leechjr.ath.cx/public/AppSnd/chime.caf.zip

    -> The PLIST file: http://leechjr.ath.cx/public/AppSnd/plist.zip

    (Copy and paste the link into your address bar)


    What to do:

    From Cydia, install Erica Utilities. This is what allows the file to be played through command-line.
    Access your iDevice system file using one of the to ways suggested above.
    Upload the sound file in the "/System/Library/Audio/UISounds" directory of your iDevice. Important the file name must be "chime.caf".
    Upload the plist file in the "/System/Library/LaunchDaemons" directory of your iDevice.
    Reboot your iDevice. You should now hear the chime somewhere in the boot process.

    This has been tested with a Jailbroken iPod Touch 2G with firmware 4.0
    If there's a broken link, just say it in the comments, and I'll fix the issue.

    Confirmed working! Also, if you want it to look even more like a Mac, use this boot logo!

    I'm pretty sure that it wouldn't work for MC models, New Bootroms and the iPad
