Thanks, will give this a go later.

The default 4th shutter sound is horrible - why would you ever want to use it? :eek:

Glad to get rid of it! :good:

You need to be rooted, at least to be able to use AntTek and Root Uninstaller, and no, you won't loose it in case of FW update, unless the upgrade is for the camera too... but the process is fast. 5 minutes and its done :cool:

Thanks Dude, but did download the ICS Camera, to take pictures without shutter sound.

Ruedas, a rooted phone doesnt receive OTA updates, right?

I'm trying my best to fix (IOW; mute) the shutter sound on my GF's O4X. While I believe I understand how this is done, I'm not able to actually get it done.

I've managed to get the phone rooted (thanks to alexp999's simple to follow guide). If I've understood things correctly; I now need to replace the original camera.apk with the modified one found in this thread.

Problem is that, in the /system/app folder, both renaming files (the old camera.apk) and copying files (the new camera.apk) to the folder fails.

Anyone able to see what I'm missing / doing wrong? Any help would be thoroughly appreciated!..

I have my way...

With "Root Uninstaller Pro" I uninstall the original one, than I grab the modded file and past it in .../system/app and I install it from there.

Reboot and its done :)

Thanks for the reply and suggestion RuedasLocas!

Titanium Backup seems to have the option to uninstall system apps, I'll give that a go. Would however like to figure out how to copy files to the system/app folder before I do that (given that this is required to re-install/enable the camera). Have tried with both ES File Manager and Total Commander; both have been given SU-privelages, both are able to browse to the folder, neither is able to copy files to or rename files in the folder...

Use "AntTek" explorer, works together, or alone if you wish, with Root Uninstaller, you can copy/paste or just cut/paste...

Tried AnTek Explorer; What an interesting file manager! Will have to test this for a longer period of time, could possibly become my new goto file manager. Thanks for the tip!..

Though I couldn't get the new/modified camera.apk to the system/app directory. Though this time it failed with an error messge; "Error Don't have enough permission to do this action" (see attached screenshot). Have double-checked that "Native mode" is enabled within AnTek and that its (permanently) enabled in SuperSU. Not sure how I can give an app even more permissions...

Just reboot the phone and it should be enough.

Some apps need a reboot to work properly.

Thanks for all the help! Rebooting allowed me to rename files. Then I finally figured out why copying files to the system folder failed (or at least partly); For reasons unknown to me, I weren't allowed to copy/move files directly from the external_sd card to the system/app directory, Had to first move the to an internal location, then I could move then to the desired location!

End result; The annoying shutter sound is gone! :victory:

Again; Thanks for all the help!

:)
