    I have been trying to disable the camera shutter since it is so annoying when taking pictures. I downloaded a file explorer and went to /system/media/audio/ui and found .ogg sound files, I renamed the camera_click.ogg to camera_click.ogg.bak and restarted the phone. The shutter sound still persists, is the sound file located somewhere else?

    I downloaded a camera apk from xda that have the ability to silence my camera. When I tried to overwrite some files in the root folder I noticed that it wouldn't let me due to permissions. I followed the guide on how to root your one v from this forum and I believe it is s-on correct? Is there a way to make it s-off? Or install the apk using my current setup? By the way I have twrp recovery 2 installed and have the stock rom. Finally would it be useful to have a backup of my stock rom in case something crazy happens?

    The "stock" camera app on my HTC Legend have an option to disable shutter sound. Did you check that?

    Yea I checked it. I looked up over at xda and here and the one v has a camera shutter sound that cannot be turned off...unless it is rooted and modify some files. I have renamed the camera under /media/ui and nothing, still sound. Even after I rebooted and cleared my dalvik cache. I guess for now I'll have that annoying sound until I find a solution for it.

    any way to do this w/o root (virgin mobile)?

    htc says it should be an option under camera interface, they said virgin mobile may have removed it. i asked virgin mobile if it is possible, if it will ever be possible - waiting to hear back from them.

    any information/tips would be greatly appreciated, thanks

    I'd like to know the answer to this also. I'm not able to find any sort of off option.

    If you root it and disassemble the camera apk it can be turned off

    virgin mobile said they have no plans to make this option available.

    anyone confirm that it is impossible w/o root?

    Not with the stock camera. You could try a different one from the market

    You have to decompile the apk and make some adjustments to a smali to activate the option to turn off stock camera shudder sound.

    i took the ogg files out the apk, saved the modified apk back, but it would not install.

    i spent a couple hours trying to troubleshoot before restoring the backup i had made before i tried doing this.

    I don't have my own computer, so I was poking around looking for a solution to work with apk files on my phone and found this:


    http://code.google.com/p/apktool/


    The apktool folder has to be in the root of your sd card. I was able to successfully decompile and recompile my framework-res.apk with no errors.


    * * * * * * * * * * * *Instructions:

    * * * * * * * * * * * *Download the archive apktool4.0_armhf.zip from http://code.google.com/p/apktool/downloads/list

    * * * * * * * * * * * *Download the updated apk file Apktool4.0.apk as well

    * * * * * * * * * * * *Extract/unzip archive to /sdcard/apktool

    * * * * * * * * * * * *Install the updated Apktool4.0.apk

    * * * * * * * * * * * *Open app from app drawer, and have fun using it! :)


    So please try this out, and let me know what you think! :)

    I took this from xda-developers.com

    I've used this also. Works well. You just have to do a lot of Google-ing on how/what/where to decompile/edit/recompile
