This mod gets rid of the camera's shutter and video start/stop sounds. There are many easy ways to accomplish this, but the big advantage of this mod is it includes an addon.d script.

What is addon.d?
On some ROMs, like Cyanogenmod, there are scripts in /system/addon.d that run during a ROM update or flash. They can backup and restore system apps (like Gapps), or perform many other functions. This mod includes an addon.d script, so the mod is not lost during a ROM update! If your ROM doesn't support addon.d, this mod should still flash properly, but you won't benefit from addon.d.

Tested and Confirmed to work on:
I'm not even going to bother listing ROMs it works on, as this is such a simple mod, it should work on any AOSP based Android 4+ ROM, for virtually any device. Let us know if it works!

Install Instructions:
- Boot into recovery
- Flash Enable zip
- Reboot

Uninstall Instructions:
- Boot into recovery
- Flash Disable zip
- Reboot

Downloads:
Enable-SilentCamera-1.4.zip
Disable-SilentCamera-1.4.zip

Changelog:
Code:
1.4 - 2/20/13
- Renamed addon.d file (not an important update)

1.3 - 12/23/12
- Minor compatibility fixes

1.2 - 12/22/12
- Initial public release
DISCLAIMER:
This mod involves editing system files. Use at your own risk! Also please don't forget, before you report ROM related bugs in the ROM developer thread, you should remove this mod to make sure the issue is not caused by this mod!

It should. I have not tested it, but worst case, it just won't work.

Good job.

Think you can cook something up to use the power button as a shutter?

Nice... would it be possible to use the volume keys as the shutter key in the camera app?
How would one go about doing this without using a 3rd party camera app like Camera Zoom...?

It is just easier to delete those camera sounds from /system/media/ui/

But when you flash the next nightly, they will be back again. Since this mod uses addon.d, it "sticks" through rom updates.That's really the whole point here.
