As the topic states, how do I remove the shutter sound when taking pictures? Putting the phone in silent mode does not help. I am on the latest ics retail.EU rooted. And also for video recording please

Thanks

Open up the camera app. Press the menu button (at the bottom of the phone). Press the gear on the menu that opens up. This is the camera settings menu. Scroll all the way down to the bottom. There is a setting there called "shutter tone". Just unchecked the box next to it and that disables the camera sound.

Try the following things:
-Download a different camera app (I don't use the stock one, mine is much faster, but I forgot the name)
-Check if all the sound levels are all the way down. Settings --> (device) sound --> volumes (Music, video games, and other media)
-Double check that you have the shutter tone unchecked under the settings in the camera app (the very last one)

Works on my Verizon Razr Maxx on ICS just fine, no sound.

Guide for XT910 ICS uses
You have 2 be rooted.
1. Go to system/build.prop
2. Edit build.prop (I'm using Root Explorer)
3. Go to ro.camera.sound.forced=1
4. Replace 1 and put 0 ( ro.camera.sound.forced=0)
5. Save it
6. Reboot
7. Now go to camera settings, and switch of the sound

Xda needs to split the RAZR sections XT910/XT912
XT912 has no "ro.camera.sound.forced" in the build.prop
So on XT912 you can rename the camera_click.ogg to camera_click.ogg.bak and have no audio issues.
With the XT910 they force it in the build.prop.

I do apologise for any inconvenience. I didn't realise there is so many difference between them.

No worries, XDA really needs to make 2 separate sections for the RAZR. Someone can easily brick there phone by following instructions for another version.

I can confirm that this method works for XT910 ics :)

    So easy if you are rooted. Use root explorer or es go to /system/media/audio/ui and delete or rename camera_click.ogg
