I have done the follwoing to silence the camera :
- Renaming the files in
Adding this line to system/csc/others.xml
<CscFeature_Camera_ShutterSoundMenu>true</CscFeature_Camera_ShutterSoundMenu>and setting to true
<ShutterSound>was set to off in
Steps 1 and 2 were the only things that worked. I now have a silent camera for the photo mode (even the autofocus sound I gone!) BUT I still have the autofocus sound when I am on the video mode. The Shutter Sound option doesn't appear in the menu when I am on the video camera mode, but it does when I am on the photo mode.
Any idea how I can add the
Shutter Sound menu entry to the Setting menu for the video mode of the stock camera app?
I am aware that disabling the camera sound is illegal in some part of the world.
Edit: using Tasker to switch to silent mode when the app is open is not an option.
