I don't know about you guys but I like to have a bit of silence when taking photos; not for secretive/perverse purposes (which is why Samsung don't allow you to turn it off as an option) but so I don't annoy people around me with my endless clicking. The following tip is probably around other boards here, but I couldn't find anything. So to remove the (rather loud) shutter sound when taking a photo: 1. Must have root access. 2. Download Root Explorer 3. Navigate to system -> media -> audio -> ui 4. Tap Mount R/W at the top 5. Scroll down to Shutter.ogg and rename it to Shutter.ogg.bak 6. Rename Shutter_multiple.ogg to Shutter_multiple.ogg.bak Now the shutter sound is gone. Please use this responsibly.
