    Is there a way to disable or change the camera sound once you take a pic? The default is very shrill to me, and i'd like to at least change it.

    I can't find a setting for it, or in the sound control panel.

    Good idea for a band aid, but I hope there is a more perm fix because I know I will forget to do that each time :)

    Looked around in every setting I could and I can't find any way to turn it off. The mute workaround works though.

    THIS IS NOT AN INSTALLABLE FIX.
    FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY


    Extract camerafix.zip onto the root of your sdcard.

    Open terminal emulator and type the following
    .

    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblk3 /system
    cp /sdcard/camera_click.ogg /system/media/audio/ui/
    cp /sdcard/VideoRecord.ogg /system/media/audio/ui/
    reboot


    Congratulations! You no longer have to deal with that annoying beep.

    (this will not remove shutter focus sound as that is hardware and not a sound file)​

    or you could just simply remove the sound files?

    rm /system/media/audio/ui/camera_click.ogg
    rm /system/media/audio/ui/videorecord.ogg

    No you cannot. As this will cause the app to force close.
