What is the safest way for me to silence the stock camera shutter sound? I don't have the option to turn off the shutter. I have used camera360 but the app is complete crap, sometimes not saving the photos at all. The stock app is good but it pretty much says "Hey look at me I'm taking a selfie!" every time I take a selfie.

I do want to root but I don't want the problems associated with the knox trip. Also, I've heard about the taiwan rom but am concerned about locale / language and other issues.

Any advice appreciated. Thanks,

I only speak English unfortunately. Or when you load the ROM it only displays English?
I guess you didn't simply flash and that's it, so don't strictly believe your statement.

Yeah,
Australian Samsung S5 has that issue, the only way that i know to remove that is either get a different camera app or different ROM.
Its annoying as

Found the fix.....

You need root.

In system\csc there is a file called customer.xml

in there, you will find the following...

<Multmedia>
<Camera>
<ShutterSound>on</ShutterSound>
</Camera>
</Multimedia>

Delete these lines and then the shutter sound will be muted when the phone sound is muted.

Reboot phone.

Set the phone to muted sound and the camera shutter will also be muted.

* Modifying this file will set your phone to "Custom" if its not already. *



Alternatively, you can change the following...

<ShutterSound>on</ShutterSound>

to

<ShutterSound>off</ShutterSound>

This should leave your phone status "Official" if it already is.
