First line, no, maybe some countries...if such a law. But easy fix, install other camera software that can disable shutter sound. Also already built into Android camera.

Second line, probably true like the first Galaxy Gear. But hopefully there'll be a mod for it like on the first.

I hope this is addressed shortly. I need to be able to take pictures of lecture notes on the board (and the professor doesn't mind, so long as it is silent), however with the shutter sound, I can't, as it would be seen as a disruption. If I start taking pictures with this thing, I would most definitely be asked to leave.

I must say that Tizen was a very poor choice on Samsung's part. No apps exist (can't so much as use Twitter), and we can't do anything. It's quite frustrating.

I tried to compile the camera sample app in the Tizen wearable SDK.
unfortunately, I couldn't compile.
has anyone else tried that.
(well maybe if we can compile, we can remove the shutter sound from that app)

Yeah, really need the ability to turn off the shutter sound. I tunred all shutter sound off on all my devices. At least the ability to low the sound.

If you root the Gear 2, there is an easier way of disabling Camera sounds:


Here are some instructions on how to Load into Odin and flash your device with the downloaded firmware

Download Odin 3.09, and extract it to its own folder
Download the rootfs.img file from the above links
Put your Gear 2 device into download mode
Launch Odin
Connect Smart watch to your PC
Make sure the settings are the default ones ie Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time selected
Select the AP Button
Navigate to where you downloaded the file and select it
Click on Start
Wait for it to finish.
In order to activate root you need the sdb.exe from Tizen-SDK, or equivalent file depending on your OS.

Disable camera sounds

sdb root on
sdb shell mount -o remount,rw /
sdb shell mv /usr/share/sounds/mm-camcorder/ /usr/share/sounds/mm-camcorder_bak/
sdb shell mv /usr/apps/ /usr/apps/
sdb shell mount -o remount,ro /
