[MOD] Camera during call and shutter sound on/off Enabled

Very easy mod to do just make sure your rooted and have root explorer on your phone.
Go to root explorer scroll down to system click on it scroll to CSC click on it now scroll down to Feature XML. Open it in text editor. Look for <CscFeature_Camera_ShutterSoundMenu>True</CscFeature change the text from false to true that will open the option in the camera so that you can turn the sound on and off. Now look for <CscFeature_Camera_EnableCameraDuringCall>True</CscFeature change the text from false to true. Take note to the pic below. Once you do that back out and save than reboot your phone and you're all set.


I love the 90s. Good times.

No problem and I appreciate you putting it out in the open. Good idea. Maybe you should turn it into a tips and tricks type of thread? See if we can't get more of these types of secrets to come out. As things are brought up and confirmed you can add them to a list in the OP for easy access.

Good stuff. Thanks fellas!

After saving my selection, it said something (I noticed at the last minute) about saving original text before I made the edits. Catch where that file is stored? Or I could be wrong (seeing things lol).

Also guys... The S4 by default it comes with 8 or 9 megapixes ativated. You got to got to the camera settings to activate the 13 megapixels.

I actually like the default 9.6 megapixel. The camera is in 16:9 ratio

I tried the edit, it didn't work for me. I'm not new to modding but new to Samsung. I used ES to make the edit, file changed and everything but no camera sound toggle. What could I have done wrong?
