Question [Q] How to turn off Camera shutter sound?

Has anyone found a Camera app that is compatible with XT720 ?

or know of a way to disabling the stock Camera shutter sound ?

many of the apps that works fine (on/off sound) on my other phones it doesn't seem to work on the XT720

it seems to completely ignore if you have the shutter sound off, even on camera apps that provide that option.

Donation is appreciated but not required, a cup of Coffee would suffice

I just plugged-in my earphone, so the sound is redirected to the earphone instead of the camera speaker. :P ... that's the fastest way to do.

go to /system/media/audio/ui/ and look for cameraXXXX.ogg and either rename it or cut and paste it somewhere else. no more click

Good idea but the files are write protected. Can't rename, delete or move. Anything can be done about this?

You can try using root explorer to delete/rename the files. Or install terminal emulator to type the commands written by khalpowers:
su
...
exit

Master solution. Refer to youtube: "adb shell" if you're a noob.

Just use root explorer to rename the extension from .ogg to .bak. then the sound will be gone.
