    I've silenced all sounds, all media sounds, silenced everything in Audiomanager....the camera shutter sound STILL will not obey.

    Can you test this out on your Elite and post results? :)

    Well, haven't tried it myself but the sounds are located in /syste/media/audio/ui/, found them after searching the forums a bit. There are actually a few sound files in there (not sure if it's because of the different camera apps that I have tried) that look like they could be the ones you need to edit:

    cam_snap_0.wav
    cam_snap_1.wav
    cam_snap_2.wav
    cam_snap_3.wav
    camera_click.ogg
    camera_snapshot.ogg
    shutter1.ogg
    shutter2.ogg
    shutter3.ogg
    shutter4.ogg
    stich_shot.ogg

    so if you are rooted it should be possible to just try replacing one of them with a blank sound then just select that one as your main sound.

    I downloaded 'UV silent camera' from Android Play. Works fine for me when I need an occasional covert shot.

    Thanks for the replies. I guess there is another good reason to root. :D

    I find it strange the camera shutter sound won't obey system sounds being muted, have an "off" setting, or even be able to adjust the volume of it.

    I think it's a privacy thing or something. They don't want people to be able to take discreet pictures with their phones.
