I'm the Dev of SilentSnap and yeah I've looked into this, so annoying but haven't got a work around at the moment. Have got a few idea's that hopefully Don't! need root access. I'll keep you posted.
This is god awful I was at a conference and tried to snap a pic of a powerpoint slide full of numbers yesterday while in silent only to be greeted by beep beep horrified stares *shame*
oh and edit +1 on not buying the "upskirt" bs argument pervs can use video...
To silence the two focusing beeps, I skip the auto focusing. Rather than slowly pressing the shutter button a half click and waiting for it to focus before pressing it all the way in (which is when you get the beeps), I simply press it all the way down in one quick motion. Surprisingly, most of my photos are in just about as good focus, and it does avoid those two annoying beeps. (I also have all of the other tones silenced).
The shutter focus beeps are alarm tones. If you go into your alarm settings and uncheck "alarm in silent mode" You will no longer hear the focus beeps when using silent mode or silentsnap
THANK YOU!!! Put phone in silent mode (turn ringer down to vibrate)
go to alarm settings uncheck alarm in silent mode only sound is that of the shutter operating no more beep beep!!!
Yes, I can verify that the phone is silenced completely with this settings while taking photos.
Uncheck "alarm in silent mode", and lower your phone volume before taking pictures.
Your volume rocker buttons are zoom buttons when you go into photo/video mode.
