The camera and video recorder sounds are there to help victims of voyeurism. However, for normal folks like us, we just don’t want to wake a sleeping baby while snapping the cutest picture known to man. Let’s disable the sounds shall we?
Note: This requires root access as well as ADB or terminal knowledge
I prefer the terminal method as it is easier in my opinion.
- su (gain superuser access)
- mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system (makes /system writeable)
- mv /system/media/audio/ui/camera_click.ogg /system/media/audio/ui/camera_click.ogg.old (renames the camera_click.ogg sound file to camera_click.ogg.old, this allows you to revert back to the sound if needed)
- mv /system/media/audio/ui/VideoRecord.ogg /system/media/audio/ui/VideoRecord.ogg.old
Open up your camera or video recorder app and you will not hear the shutter sound anymore.
