    Can't, it's a required feature since it's illegal in most countries to take pictures of someone without their acknowledgement.

    Hmm I know on the s3 there's a file called features.xml , it contains a bunch of true/false options like on/off. They control various features of the phone, I'm unsure what the line is called if you can find it and upload it I may be able to check it out, I can't check since the viper we have isn't mine I'm not allowed to root it.

    Trust me though I'm quite knowledgeable, I've been in the forums a while and will know the line when I see it.

    Replace the shutter sound file with a silent ogg file, it's what I used to do.

    They require it in Japan, since that culture is so demented, that there was an epidemic of men taking pictures up women's skirts

    I know on my phone I can set my sound profile to silent and it turns off the shutter sound. In my settings under sound.

    It worked but i had to put my phone on silent. If you leave your volume up it will still make the sound

    This was the instrucs for my optimus cm7, looks to be the same on cm9 just camera click.
    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.

    Yes, i mean prior to that if you had it on silent it would still shutter.

    N0ve, it looks like the files in that folder are orphans, the resources of the camera are all built into the app, so you just have to extract, and repackage.

    1. Open your camera app, cover the speaker with your finger, then, Capture.
    2. Open your camera app, turn your phone into Silent Mode, then Capture.

    Based upon a quick look at his lengthy profile it's hard to say. I'm guessing either a troll or nOOb.

    I can't check on my wife's Viper since it's not rooted but I just checked on my GNex, maybe I can at least point you in the right direction. /system/media/audio/ui/ and find the .ogg named camera_click or something like that. Just rename it to <filename>.ogg.bak and it should work. I did the same thing on my old Moto Admiral although I'm not sure of the exact path on that.
