1. Touch the lower left menu key.

2. Enable “Root Explorer” and Tap the “Root Explorer” tab.

3. Use “Mount R/W” menu and enable the R/W option. See the screenshot below:-


Now go to the system/media/audio/ui and then rename the file camera_click.ogg. In future if you want to enable the sound again then you can easily do that by renaming the file.


That’s it! Now the camera sound is disable on your phone and you can click pictures without the shutter sound.
