Camera [Q] Can't disable shutter sound after 4.3 upgrade

A strange and slightly annoying matter of fact, after I upgraded my C6802 to 4.3 I'm no longer able to disable the shutter sound in the default camera app. The menu/setting option is gone. Anyone else had the same problem?

My C6802 is the HK version, and I was able to disable it in 4.2.2.

I do live in Japan, and did upgrade while in Japan, but should that matter?
(I know that phones 'sold in Japan' aren't able to have their shutter sound disabled, but the Z Ultra isn't for sale in Japan, so in my opinion it shouldn't matter.)

Did you try to change regional setting to another country?

If your ZU is rooted and Xposed framework installed, please try WedyMod-res.
Enable it and check "Don't force camera sound (カメラシャッター音設定を表示)", then reboot.
I only tested on Z1 4.3, but maybe the cause of this issue is same...
Sony added "force camera sound" settings in framework-res.apk for countries like Japan.

I also have the option to disable it on my 6833.
 
I DO NOT RUN A SUPPORT LINE THROUGH PERSONAL MESSAGES,
SO PLEASE DO NOT PM ME ABOUT HELP (*COUGH* UNLESS I KNOW YOU *COUGH*).

THANK YOU, AND PLEASE HAVE A COOKIE ON YOUR WAY OUT.

Its on my c6833 also. Is it a US version thing that prevents it?

Decompile framework-res.apk and find "values-mcc440" in res folder.
mcc440 means "Mobile country code - Japan" and it contains bools.xml.
Contents are
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<resources>
    <bool name="config_camera_sound_forced">true</bool>
</resources>
and this bool disables shutter sound option.
If you inserts Japanese SIM card, this bool is automatically loaded.

If your SIM is for countries not restricting muted shutter sound or you don't insert SIM, option is still there.

(Sorry for the delay, was quite busy over the holidays...)
Thanks! Worked like a charm.
