You see, I got a pixel 5a that is imported from Japan and in Japan all phones Manufacturers must have shutter sound when taking pictures and you can't disable it.
If I will root my phone I will be able to disable it, right?

No. Only with root - no. It depends on device ID (US or JP). For p5 there is patch for TWRP that spoofs ID, but there is no TWRP for 5a.

May be with some magisk module but i can't find any.

Or you can use modded Gcam.

Hi can you share the steps to do this? Also wanting to remove my shutter sound. From your reply, it looks like you need to root it?

it is impossible to convert 5a sun of the Japanese version into the American version, the difference is in the bands, only use the gcam mod

Faced the same issue. Like other people said, removing it from the stock Gcam probably isn't an option. Just use a compatible Gcam mod, I recommend MWP GCam for latest supported version.

As a bonus, you can use Tasker to intercept the double power button gesture to launch the modded GCam instead of stock.
