yep, i wish someone knew where the focus sound is...that's all i have left to get rid of.
Just started using Pro Zoom Camera 5X. It has a setting to turn of the camera sounds including focus lock. This will not get rid of the start-up aperture click that is hardware not software.
Unfortunately, that sound is the result of a tiny motor moving the lens back and forth. It's an auto-focus lens, so it will make noises and clicks as it focuses.
It's very noticeable in apps like Barcode Scanner which constantly focuses in and out.
I don't think anyone's talking about the sound the actual motor makes when it's moving the lens to focus, I think we're talking about the obnoxious double beep that occurs to inform you that the camera has found focus. This is definitely not a noise caused by any hardware (unless you count the speaker ).
I'm running the UK 2.1 on my milestone. I removed the camera shudder noise along with the camera focus noise everyone is trying to remove.
Once in terminal do the following:
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock6 /system
mv /system/media/audio/ui/camera_click.ogg /system/media/audio/ui/camera_click.ogg.bak
mv /system/media/audio/ui/VideoRecord.ogg /system/media/audio/ui/VideoRecord.ogg.bak
mv /system/media/audio/ui/Effect_Tick.ogg /system/media/audio/ui/Effect_Tick.ogg.bak
mv /system/media/audio/ui/KeypressStandard.ogg /system/media/audio/ui/KeypressStandard.ogg.bak
mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock6 /system
Why are you changing KeypressStandard?
The noise they're talking about is the mechanical noise produces from the focus movement... which is absolutely retarded. The other noise is when the device finishes the focus, which is what the other half is talking about getting rid of. I can't find it in Camera.apk, and its not in /ui/

ireallywantadroid - none of the noises in /media/audio/ui/ are the 2 beep focus sound...so you didnt get rid of the focus sound like you say.
camera_click is when the picture snaps, video_record is when you start a video, and im 99% sure effect_tick has nothing to do with the camera either way...
the only way to get rid of the focus beeps i can figure out is to put the phone in vibrate or silent.
