Hey all.
I realize this question has been asked before, but I can't seem to find an answer anywhere.
I need to disable the sound the phone makes when you quick-start the camera app.
Not through tapping on the camera app in the menu, but starting it through the hard camera button on the side.
Again, this is not the shutter sound. It cannot be disabled in the camera app, which is why I am trying to find the sound file itself and rename it to a .bak.
I tried disabling the sounds in the /system/media/audio folder, but no luck. I have reason to think it is in the /system/priv-app folder, but I'm not sure.
P.S. I know the sound is there for privacy reasons, but I think it just makes the device feel like a child's toy.
Thanks for your time everyone.

It is inside the app itself. You will need to decompile the app to modify it. The sound file is called start_up_notifier.wav

You're right cachanilla86, seems to be in /system/priv-app/SemcCameraUI. Thanks!
I tried modifying the apk by extracting it, and ruined the file's signature.
Now the phone won't start the camera.
Oh well. Good thing I backed up!
