Default Turn off camera shutter sound

I know, it should be easy. But how can you turn off the camers shutter sound? I looked & tried everywhere.

The only way I found is to scroll your volume down to silent before opening the cam app

Default Replace sound file

If you can get there (i.e. rooted), the sound file is located at /system/media/audio/ui/camera_click.ogg

I couldn't delete it, but I was able to replace it by copying/pasting a silent sound file with the same name using Root Explorer. (Used Audacity to create file - it's in the attached zip file.)

I'm not using the standard home screen, but for anyone interested, I would imagine the same idea would work for replacing the "swipe" sounds with the same file names

Swipe open is located at /data/data/com.nec.android.ncmc.homeapp/files/2.ogg
and Swipe closed is at /data/data/com.nec.android.ncmc.homeapp/files/4.ogg

I am also using Root Explorer, thanks for pointing out where that file was, saved me some search time
Just rooted today, so there may have been an update since then.
But if you tap the white button that says "Mount R/W" then you have just ENABLED Read/Write permissions.
I was able to delete the sound file with no problem, no need to replace either.
After I did that maybe 2min later my phone did randomly quick restart into a lost signal,
but I fixed that by just a simple hard restart, phone back to normal, and none of that crap shutter sound!!! So Annoying!!!

I paid for Camera Zoom FX app and glad I did. Much better camera with tons of features and yes you can turn off the shutter sound amoung many other things.

I bought CameraZoom FX for 10 cents when Google was running its 10 apps a day for 10 days for 10 cents each promotion last month. Waaaaaaay better than the stock app. I'd still recommend it at the 2.99 price.

ive always used the stock camera and never gave "alternate'apps a thought. When my streak had its last update, it screwed up mthe video and camera quality... Ill give this app a try and see if it helps returnn some measure of quality to pics.

I loaded the Camera360 app (free) and it has a setting to turn off the shutter sound.

I know you guys probably don't care, but this is actually a "safety" issue. A lot of phone manufacturers are making the shutter sound mandatory now because they want people to be aware of when a picture is being taken of them, to avoid creepers and stuff like that.

Thank God the "creepers" don't know how to use volume control.

Paranoid BS.

it was mainly women complaining about guys taking those "upskirt" photos...it is a mandatory option and all phones have some sort of a sound preloaded.

It is called Camera Phone Predator Alert Act.

It’s an open bill that was introduced back in 2009. It has not been passed into law.
So far, this “idea” has only been suggested to a congressional committee. It is not mandatory, and may never be.

This is just another problem with everyone carrying “cameras” around. People have no idea what or whom they may take pictures of.


Me? I have been a professional photographer since 1994,

Are you annoying by the loud camera shutter sound and set to silent mode or volume off did not fix the problem?

Here is simple way to disable it, but your phone need to be ROOTED.

TODO:
1. Download Root Explorer
2. Run Root Explorer

3. Browse thru the file until "/system/media/audio/ui"
4. Click on the [Mount Button]
5. Rename "Shutter_01.ogg" to "Shutter_01.ogg.off"
6. Reboot your phone. DONE

Try take a picture. Even with sound ON, your camera shutter will not make any sound

If you aren't rooted, this won't work.

Managed to rename the shutter sound, no longer hearing it. Any suggestions about the loud "focus" beep?

I had already tried to delete and rename the file but it crashed the camera app. This however worked perfectly
