Hi all,

Update 30/03: Testing seems okay so flashable zip file for recovery added.

There seems to be a lot of demand for a silent video camera and I sometimes wonder if the motives are questionable but nevertheless, I aim to please.

LG have put security around the video camera sound files (these are in camera.apk/res/raw/ - camstart01.wav and camstop01.wav). They verify the file by name, id and most significantly a hash key. This means it is impossible to change the files without changing the code.

So here we have the modified Camera.apk with code changes.

  • No video camera start sound
  • No video camera end sound
  • Still camera sounds not affected
  • Sound file verification and sound trigger code removed, no code added

Download the .zip file below and flash it from ClockworkMod Recovery.

Download: O2xNoVideoSound-unsigned.zip

Please report back and I like the 'Thanks' button below... ;)

I tried flashing this through CWM and it ended up getting stuck in a boot loop. Had to restore my backup to get it to boot again. I'm running stock Android 2.2.2, Kernal 2.6.32.9, Build FRG83G and LGE version LGP990-V10d.

Any ideas why it's not working?

No, I don't know why sorry. It should work, it simply replaces one file.

In fact I can't imagine what could even cause the loop. To be honest I'd need to see a log to confirm what the problem was.

If you can get a log with adb whilst it's looping I'd take a look for you but of course this is effort you may not care to go to.

Thanks for the reply and offer, but yea that is a bit more effort than I think the silent video is worth at the moment. Hopefully nobody else is having issues.
