Default ICS Scrrenshot / ICS Silent Screenshot

With ICS you no longer need a third-party app to take a screenshot simply hold down ... Power/Volume Down until it is taken. There will be a loud click.

To remove the loud click ...
  • You must allow installation or non-market apps ... System settings | Security & Screen Lock | Unknown source ... select Allow installation of non-Market apps
  • Download Enforced Stream Silencer (attached below)
  • Run Enforced Stream Silencer
  • Check the option Disable STREAM_SYSTEM_ENFORCED
I installed it and it seems to work. Root-ing is not required. I do not know who wrote the app.

There are no guarantees ... use it at your own risk. If you are not comforatable with any part of this installation ... I recommend that you don't do it.
