Default [mod]Kill the Shuttersound

Hey guys,

there is this annoying thing with the RAZR HD, the shutter Sound.
You cant turn it off, you cant silence it and stuff.

I googled a little and found out that if you are rooted, it is quiet easy to turn of that annoying noise.

Just Download a root file manager
then go to /system/media/audio/ui
mount your system as read/write
then simply rename the file Camera_click.ogg to camera_click.ogg.bak

Thats it, you will never hear that sound again, unless you rename the file back to camera_click.ogg

so enjoy and have fun with your silenced camera

the option to disable shutter sound is built into the camera app under settings. look at the bottom option

Yap you're Right, it is illegal to disable the shutter sound on phone cameras in some countries. Some countries even demand that the shutter sound gotta have some minimum decibel determined by law.

I don't got the country list. but i think u can find that by googling it.

The disable is on my phone.
Also if you turn your volume down, the shutter sound goes down with overall phone volume.
mute the phone and the shutter sound is also muted.

I did that a few weeks ago. After that taking photos takes a lot more of time and the photos weren't pushed to the little gallery screen (in the right, top of the screen).

try not just to rename Camera_click.ogg but make the file with same name and silence inside.

Another option is too simply install another camera app. I don't intend to promote a specific app but I have recently installed jb camera+ and been quite happy. Probably other apps are just as good.

2 things I have noticed: much improved image quality (less noise ) and the option to silence the shutter! Try out the free ics app or similar and compare image quality to motos app. I was a bit surprised to see the difference. My phone is not rooted btw.
