    Ok, so after playing with the files for awhile now, i can't seem to figure out how to silence the different shooting modes. Single shot and panoramic are silent, but burst and lowlight are not (the others I've never used so I don't care about them). Anyone have any ideas? Burst mode is outrageously annoying with a shutter sound on. I've renamed just about every camera sound file in this directory that looks suspicious. Any extra help would be awesome! Thanks guys.

    I can't seem to rename these files.

    Hmm, I'm rooted (followed Skunkape's method). I've verified that I'm rooted, and am running several apps that require root, including Titanium Backup (paid version). I have SuperSU installed, and ES File explorer configured for root. I can navigate to the proper directory, but when I attempt to rename the file ESFE acts like it's changed them, but the file names remain the same. Astro File manager, gives me an error and says the files ca't be renamed. Properties shows rw- r-- r--. I can't change the properties, either.

    Any thoughts on why the OS won't let me change these file names?

    Thanks.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    In es fire explorer after selecting root in the settings you also have to mount the file system as read write. It's in the root menu settings.

    Thanks a bunch! This method worked for me as well once I changed the permissions, and everything is working fine. However, there is now a "features.xml.bak" file showing up in addition to the "features.xml" file in the system/csc directory. Also, there are files named "contents.db" and "sales_code.dat" in the same directory. I don't recall any of these files being in the directory before I made the edit. Would anyone happen to know why these additional files are now showing?

    Why does my Samsung Galaxy S3 not have these files to begin with? I am using the SPH-L710 on Sprint. I cannot find any files named System, Audio or UI either. Help appreciated.

    Thanks.
    These are folders
    system / media / audio / UI
    The media folder is in the system folder.
    The audio folder is in the media folder.
    The ui folder is in the audio folder.
    The ogg files you are looking for are in the ui folder.

    You must have a root explorer such as es file explorer or root explorer.

    I have those files and the modified dates are way back in the past.

    Skunk- can you update the top post to make sure people are checking the permissions? May save a few pages of reading

    You don't need to change permissions. You are just adding .bak to the end of the file names. I will have to read back a bit too figure out what you're talking about.

    Skunkape, the first post now reads:

    3. Under find the following line
    false

    without saying what line we're supposed to change. I think I found it, but just want to be sure....

    The easiest way to turn off the shutter sound is to turn down the volume BEFORE you open the camera app. Once that is done....presto...no more shutter sound. Easy as pie.

    1. browse to system/csc

    2. open feature.xml in a text editor. (With root explorer hold down on the file and choose open in text editor.)

    3. Under find the following line
    false

    Change the false to true. Save and exit. Reboot your phone and under camera settings just under GPS Tag you will have the option to turn it on or off.

    To get this to work you must also change permissions.
    Huh? "Under find the following line
    false"

    What there's a line called "false" or there's a line called "find the following line?"
    I'm confused and there are A LOT of lines. Somebody please clarify what line we are looking for. Thanks!
