    uva silent widget is a no-go. camera gets locked out, force close on all instances.

    Here's all I've found that really works. You have to root your phone and perform the steps in the link below. The answer is probably available on this site as well, but I Starred the one below. Yes, rooting is extreme for just this, but it seems to be the only way at the moment. The few apps out there to do this don't have rave reviews and I don't want to install a replacement camera app just to silence it.

    I havent tried smart measure yet but silentcam = stoneage_quality_pix.
    for kicks I also tried 1 or 2 private-type apps that just kill all volume in general (silent mode). but I could just as well use the vol buttons on the side too, minus the footprint. maybe the rom chefs can cook up something for a future update, this should be accessible from the camera app settings imho.

    With my old phone (winmo) I could simply replace the sound file with an empty one. The sound files look to be .wav (PCM) in system\media\audio\ui\. The problem is that when i replace these it still makes the sound. Is it somewhere else? I don't want to install an app just to mute the sound.

    Isnt there a law that cell cameras and such have to make a sound in order to prevent pervs from discreetly taking inappropriate photos? Can't remember is someone just suggested it or it actually went into effect.

    Ah. Here we go... Bill Text - 111th Congress (2009-2010) - THOMAS (Library of Congress)

    So, far it was referred to a house subcommittee, but has apparently stalled as it has yet to be presented for a vote. Perhaps cell phone manufacturers anticipated its passing and made it standard without the bill actually being passed.
