Does anyone know how to stop the shutter noise on the galaxy s2 please.
Moved to the S2 forum.
if u upgrade ur software to android version 2.3.4 (flash a newer firmware, KG5 is the newest) the shutter is silent when u turn on Silent Mode. if not, i read a more complicated method in the SGS2 tips and tricks thread, u could check that out
EDIT: here is the post
but unfortunately u need to be rooted to do that, i realize
I have tried to update both through Kies 2 and through the phones software update. Both say there is no update available!!
According to my phone my android version is 2.3.3??? . How can i upgarde to 2.3.4?
my s2 has no shutter sound, both silent and not
i'm 2.3.3 with ke7
Put the phone into silent mode.
or reduce the system volume to 0
I have tried turning system volume down. . . no good. Tried turning sound off, silent mode.. no good.
It states i have Gingerbread BVKG3. Android version 2.3.3. Are these the latest ones. . . and what is KE7?
you have the lastest but it doesnt mean its a setting for the shutter.
you will find if it is possible just putting it in silent mode will mute it, turning down volumes wont do anything if the firmware doesnt support it.
i have kf4 and also cannot disable it, as heshanj said, it is an option introduced in 2.3.4 so really unless you root or manually update through odin (there are threads on this and read up in the root section to get more of an understanding), you have to wait for your ISP to do the update via Kies.
p.s. look at the firmware version like the alphabet = kE1 then kF1 then kG1 etc....the last number is just which one it is, starting from 1.
is there any chance u got this phone in north america?
Kies has updates based on region, and could be a while before u see it on Kies.. check out this guide to flash XXKG5.. newest official firmware, running 2.3.4
u dont need to root

I'm in the UK, Not north America. My mate at work has the same phone, had it a couple of weeks before me with Vodaphone. I am on Orange and we have different firmware it appears. Will try some of the advice above.
Really appreciate the help all.
