    Go to the market, and download Mobile Hidden Camera, it downloads as Simple Notepad. Stealthy

    Download Estrongs file explorer (free) from market. Give it Root access in settings. navigate to /system/media/audio/ui/ and rename camera_snapshot.ogg to camera_snapshot.ogg.bak and then when you take pics there won't be any shutter sound.

    Is there a way to do this via Astro or Superuser?

    My shutter sound goes away if I put the phone on vibrate by turning the ringer volume all the way down. Is that permanent enough?

    I copied one of the other sounds that was a tiny little "tick" over the original file. This way I still have a sound to know that the shutter went off (useful for the at-arms-length-self-portrait since there's no flash), but isn't as loud and annoying as the original sound. Just a suggestion.

    Question Re: disable Camera sound

    Will it work if you delete the actual sounds (hold the camera button and delete)

    Doe this mean BEFORE you use the app you need to have root access? I've tried this however with no root access it simply says it 'failed'?

    yes. You can't remount /system writeable without root, and that's the only way it can delete the files.
