    So it will look like this:

    Shutter.ogg.bak
    Shutter_multiple.ogg.bak

    You will (of course) need to be rooted and have read/write enabled and restart your phone. Then those pesky shutter sounds will be gone for good.

    Thanks should go to
    worked perfectly !

    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.

    Just rooted my phone 2 days ago.. went to the .xml file and changed it to true (show the shutter sound option while in my native camera) and RESTARTED my phone... it works perfectly.. even turned off my focus sound too!!

    I also enabled the camera while making phone calls .. (same .xml file) I was updated to android 4.1.1 when I rooted... Sprint didn't allow me to use my camera while on the phone.. dumb.

    Both of these changes require a restart ...

    Thanks for all the help!!

    Okay, I have read these post multiple times trying to figure out how to root my phone to get to the Shutter sound off. I have the Sprint Samsung Galaxy S3. I downloaded Es File Explorer file Manager and followed the Youtube videos to root my phone with this app. Every time i click on Root Explorer to root my phone it tells me, "Sorry test failed this feature cannot run on your device." Is there anything else I can do to get this shutter sound turned off.

    Thank you

    GianDChik, I don't understand your post, are you saying you are trying to root your phone with ES Explorer? Or you are rooted and trying to use it to turn off the shutter sound? You do know that ES Explorer can not root your phone? There are procedures for rooting your phone posted on this forum by Skunkape. Rooting involves installing files and flashing with a PC program called Odin. You must understand them fully, (read, read, read) or you can brick your phone. You can then use ES Explorer (I use Root Explorer) to enable your shutter sound menu by tweaking system files but ONLY AFTER you have rooted your phone. Two completely separate things. I may be wrong, but your post gives me the impression that you are trying to "root your phone with ES Explorer" (you can't).

    What rando said. Follow these instructions to root: [GUIDE] UPDATED: How to Root Your Sprint Galaxy S3

    Read the entire thread. Then re-read the instructions (post 1). Maybe twice.

    Then, and only then, follow them carefully, step by step. Reading each step again before executing. It's actually quite easy and safe if you follow the instructions.

    What did you use to edit the file? ES File Explorer (and maybe other editors) has a bug that causes it to change the permissions of the file when saved. The permissions should be rw- r-- r--. ES File Explorer changes them to rw- --- ---, preventing Android from being able to read the file. If permissions have been changed, set them back to rw- r-- r--, reboot again, and you should be good to go.

    While you're at it, you might also want to change the value of EnableCameraDuringCall to true.

    Yes, I noticed the rw and changed it to rw r r. No typos. Dunno.

    EDIT:ok. Looked at it with X PLORE and it showed just r. Went back to es and it showed Rw r r. Hmm. Anyway, used X plore to change permissions and viola! All is good. Thanks for your input.

    One more thought... I was thinking about getting a Note ll but I don't like not being able to talk and surf at the same time. I wonder if there's a similar config file that would allow a change for that on the Note ll.

    I noticed that ES FE doesn't seem to update the permissions until you back out from the file list and come back to it, but it sounds like you probably did that and still didn't see the accurate information. Weird.

    Can't help you on the Note II. I'd check out the Note II fora for more info. I have my doubts as to whether it would be that simple, though.

    I'm surprised the Note II is any different than the GS3 in that regard.

    What part of the xml file did you change to allow you to use your camera while on the phone or is it self explanitory?

    Edited: Found it
    Samsung Galaxy S3 (tweaked and rooted)
    Samsung Epic 4G (retired rooted backup)
    Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus
    Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
    Apple iPad 3 (yes, I have one of those also)

    Have option to turn off/on shutter sound (only works for camera, find out for camcorder), allowing to take picture while on call (only works for camera, find out for camcorder)

    Go to /system/csc/feature.xml

    Change from RO to RW

    Open in Text Editor

    Look for the line:
    <CscFeature_Camera_ShutterSoundMenu>true</CscFeature_Camera_ShutterSoundMenu> &
    <CscFeature_Camera_EnableCameraDuringCall>false</CscFeature_Camera_EnableCameraDuringCall>

    Change all the "false" to "true"

    Make sure permissions on the file are rw- r-- r--

    Restart phone

    Make sure permissions on the file are rw- r-- r--

    Restart phone

    This worked great. What I found was using Root Explorer I would edit the lines and save, of course change the permissions before and after the editing of, but "true" would change back to false. I believe it has something to do with Root Explorer not Mounting the Drive Volume. I'm not a Linux expert but when I used ES Explorer and had to go in and set Root Permissions for it, I noticed the screen text flash to Mounting Volume.
    I then followed above and BINGO! I like the Menu Option better than just removing the sound file.

    I suspect the answer is yes, but don't really know. I think this question would be better asked, and more likely to be answered, in the Note 2 forum. This is the GS3 forum.

    LOL way ahead of ya...
    [sprint only] toggle camera shutter sound no root

    And skunkape: Sorry if I missed it and someone covered this already but as long as this thread has been up I didn't know people were renaming files.
    IF YOU CHANGED THE XML FILES AND YOUR SHUTTER SOUND STILL WILL NOT TURN OFF:
    Open your build.prop and go to the bottom. Scroll up slowly and find this line:
    "ro.camera.sound.forced=1"

    change the 1 to a 0 and save the file. No need to rename sound files...
