    Hi !

    I’ve rooted my samsung smartphone, and I’ve tried to delete some files in the system folder, with no success so far :(
    Does anyone know a tip to delete or move these reluctant files? Maybe an app?

    Many thanks for your help



    More details :
    Device : Samsung Galaxy Ace 2, GT-I8160P
    Android 2.3.6, Kernel 2.6.35.7


    I wanted to take pictures with my smartphone without hearing the shutter noise. I found no option on the phone : even in silent mode the sound keeps playing while taking a photo. Then I downloaded some apps like spy camera etc : it does take pictures without noise, but only low resolution pics (maximum 800x600). For higher resolution the shutter noise comes back.

    So I decided to root my phone (kingroot) and I found some files that I think are responsible for the noise : system/media/audio/ui/camera_click.ogg and 3 other files named "camera_***"

    I tried to rename, move or delete them, with no success so far, using : root browser, total commander, explorer, fx, file expert… none seem to work

    So is root working, i.e. can any of your other apps perform actions which require root?

    Welcome to AF! :)

    It kind of sounds like your bootloader is locked or your /system partition's cannot be put into read-write mode.

    Have a peek in our SG Ace 2 root area to see if there's anything useful in there for you (I'm not familiar with the Ace 2, so the folks that hang-out and the threads that exist in there might be your best bet).

    Cheers!
