Default [Q] Silence Screenshots

Has anyone figured how to silence the screenshot click without rooting the M8?

I know where it is, but without root, I can't access it. And I don't want to root the phone, I just restored it to stock. Got tired of buggy custom roms.

Simple, but not that easy, would have to go through the problem of unlocking the bootloader, rooting, then unroot then lock the bootloader again. Was hoping for a simpler way. I tried the silencer app, it worked in a way, but all it did was shut the volume off. I guess until then, I will just shut the volume off. But thanks for trying.

I've done it a hundred times, but have grown tired of it. I like stock anyway and not rooting unless they come out with a multirom where I can load Windows on one boot

Why don't you just turn down the volume or set to vibrate?

That would be another way. Of course I would have to remember to do that and to turn the Vol back up. But thanks for the suggestion.
