I think for many people it is not so obvious!...This post took me more time to write it than to create a new firmware with different pictures. This is the reason people don't want to give detailed responses for such easy tasks.
I don't think a silent FCWS alarm would be much use!There are some PCM and AAC and AC3 files inside rfs folder. Usually these extensions are audio files extensions, but no player from my PC (foobar, MPC-HC, VLC) can play any file like that. And I am sure PCM files are audio files, but I can't listen any of them.
But on the forum are some Ambarella firmwares which are containing empty PCM files to make camera power on and off silently .
It is too simple to explain. I discovered myself how to do this in few minutes. If you wanted to try, at least, in these days after you discovered the tool is impossible to not find how to do it.
All you need is to press the buttons from left to right.
File > Open > Select firmware
Sections > Export all
RFS > Export files
On your PC:
Go in the firmware folder and you will see a folder named RFS and look for JPG pictures called boot_logo.jpg and shutdown_logo.jpg.
Now you just need to make your desired pictures with the same properties as original pictures:

Replace the original boot_logo.jpg and shutdown_logo.jpg with your new created boot_logo.jpg and shutdown_logo.jpg
Back to A7Tool:
RFS > Build RFS
RFS > Include
Build > Firmware binary
And you will obtain a new firmware named a7firmware.bin
When updating your camera you need to rename the a7firmware.bin to firmware.bin
For example I am using different pictures just to know what firmware I am using. But many people just want black logo.

He is a great guy, but I do feel bad taking up other peoples time. I know they have other things to do and can't play with cameras all day, but If someone with the know how was able to take the time and latterly write
