ADB File Explorer: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1772338

DOWNLOAD:
Modded camera: AMII firmware (original apk is in Restore folder)

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Root your device
2. Install SuperSU or SuperUser and Busybox via Wondershare MobileGo
3. Use Droid Manager (Start Device Manager -> File Manager) and browse to /system/media/audio/ui
4. Create a new folder (Right click -> New -> New Folder)
5. Right click any sound file (you can ctrl+select multiple files) you do not want and select Move -> Move
6. Go into the folder you created and right click -> Move -> Paste
7. Open Windows explorer and copy apk

Media files to delete/rename/move (/system/media/audio/ui):
Auto_focus.ogg
Cam_Start.ogg
Cam_Stop.ogg
Shutter.ogg

I tried to make it as easy as I could for all of you
Alternatively, you can use root explorer and Google keyboard to move/rename/delete on your watch itself

Just like Samsung phones, the sounds are both in the ui folder and inside the apk. You need to replace apk to stop remaining sounds. So in short, yes it gets rid of the sound

Hello!

I'm having problem installing busybox. I install it via Wondershare but when I start droidmanager it says that I need to install busybox for droid manager to work, It then asks if I want to install it. I click yes and then droid manager just crash. Without busybox I cant browse my gear.

Can you please help me?

I solved it.

However, I cant browse my gear from the file manager. I see no tree whatsoever.

Are you sure you replaced it? How did you do it? The modded apk only contains muted sounds

copy and paste with droid manager. also if i deleted the camera apk if wont let me copy another one in the system/app i guess i will reset and try again unless there's a way to restore the original without resetting the watch.

The original (unmodded) apk is available in the restore folder in the link above
Sounds like you have a permissions problem? Do you have root? Perhaps try replacing on device with root browser (or similar)

    Just a question: the autofocus sound (let me use this name) will be totally removed or just decreased the volume?
    Removed completely :)

    Check your permission settings in SuperSu

    Nice one brudda! It works great now!

    Works very well, appreciate it.

    Only the little beep/click is still there but it is very very silent, you literally have to put the watch up to your ear to hear it, as if it wasn't muted but the volume was simply lowered for that particular sound.

    To clarify, I'm not complaining as you can hardly hear it, just pointing it out.

    I hear it now :(

    I must've used wrong sound file. Will fix next week
