HTC has disabled the ability to turn off shutter sounds with the new camera app in 2.3.4. Why? IDK. Possibly to stop up-skirt shots from old pervs, or probably another thing on the long list of "piss customers off" in addition to adding CIQ.

Removing it is easy enough, but getting the option back is a bit more difficult.

To remove the shutter sound, explore the apk with WinRAR or your favorite archiving program, navigate to res/raw, and remove camera_click.ogg.

I took the liberty of doing it and it is available here.

This HTCCamera.apk also includes Panorma/HDR courtesy of my man SteelH.

Freeza,

Thanks.

I was still digging through the files looking for where to make the changes in the actual code.

You just saved me a bunch of time.

Using adb just boot into your recovery ( from a windows pc) in this case windows7

the go to the android SDK folder and under platform tools, copy your HTCCamera.apk to that folder then from your PC's command prompt navigate that same folder and do: adb push HTCCamera.apk /system/app

then exit and reboot phone
