Hi everyone.
I was wondering if anyone has figured out how to disable the camera shutter sound when the phone is not on silent

Thanks
Dave

I can't seem to find the option to switch off the camera shutter sound too

The camera setting don't seem to be permanently set all the time, for eg. when I switch on auto contrast, it went back to "off" again when I use the camera for the second time.

Shutter sound can't be disabled by default. If you are rooted, you can rename the ogg file and it won't play.

File is in /system/media/audio/ui

It seems the SGS2 has gone backwards as even with SGS1, the camera sound can be turned off in the settings menu.

Don't take this as absolute truth, but I'm pretty sure it's the law in some countries that you're not able to turn off the camera-shutter sound.

"Blade buddy" allows you to turn it off. It's free on the market.

This is true in a number of locations.

I've managed to stop the shutter sound and the video recording start/stop sounds by renaming all the camera-related ogg files in the /system/media/audio/ui folder, but I can't seem to find the ogg file for the camera 'autofocus' sound.

Does anyone know which file this is?

Root and then use Ghost Commander, root explorer or Android Mate.
