Since I have a Samsung Epic 4g, I pretty recently and pretty embarrassingly got the Gingerbread update. Firmwear version is 2.3.5 and Kernel version is 18.104.22.168 (Not sure if those have anything to do with this) Since this update, there is no option to mute the shutter or focusing sounds in the camera. I've looked in all the settings and it only offers 3 different sounds to choose from. I know before this update, I was able to mute it but no longer. I have read in a few threads to just mute your System volume and notification volume but this still does not work. I'm a little hesitant to try and root my phone or else I would just do that but was wondering if there was any other way or if rooting really isn't that bad? Any advice would be much appreciated!
