OK... So I promised a fix per day, or thereabouts...

I didn't manage to get a fix done yesterday, but here's why...



It's a one-click (well almost - it asks you to confirm) way to install my tweaks and addons into your rooted ROM without worrying about ADB or Root Explorer. It also has 2 buttons to quickly remount your filesystem as RW or RO, without messing around with commands.

It is NOT ready for mainstream use, so consider it Alpha. It does make backups of any files it touches, but it will overwrite them if you reflash the same file. This will be addressed at a later date.

Enjoy, and let me know if it works (both the app and the Camera mod). You will need < 15% battery to properly test it though and see it still works. Also test camcorder mode please when that happens

Thanks also to kevin@TeslaCoil for his ShellCommand class to faciliate root commands.

The smallprint for VRTweaks...

This app is not for distribution in "ROMs" without prior arrangement with myself. If you wish to share the app, give a link to this thread, or the QR code. The fixes available themselves are created by me, unless otherwise credited, and should not be cooked into ROMs. Android is about understanding what you are changing, rather than copying and pasting files.

You can get VRTweaks from This link

If you are after more tweaks, you can get that via installing the VillainROM custom ROM.

What all changes does the apk do to the camera app. Does it give us the option to turn shutter sound off. i would like to test the camera apk, but its a system app, so I prefer to know all the changes before I mode my system.

Allows camera to run at below 15% battery.

You can delete the sound file in /system/media/audio/ui to stop shutter noise
