    Many MODs have muted the camera (which stupidly is not an option in stock!!!)

    I am on the Frozen Yogurt Mod which does not include this. Love it so far, just wish it had this option! Is there a way of fixing this issue without changing a whole lot?

    I did it by using another app I happened to have installed. Tasker allows this and much more. I set a profile to lower the volume when the camera app is started.

    EDIT: It just occurred to me that you said clicking. Tasker will not prevent clicking as it is the sound the actual hardware is making. Autofocus? Iris dilation? Not sure.

    Use Root Explorer to rename /system/media/audio/ui/camer_click.ogg

    This will disable the camera click sound.

    Handy method. Is that the shutter sound that occurs after the camera takes a picture?

    Yes this is the sound the phone makes after a picture is taken. Normally can be silenced if you turn the volume all the way down, but I find that to be annoying. You can also disable the video recorder sound when you click the record button. In the same directory there's a file for the camcorder sound. Rename VideoRecord.ogg and it will eliminate that as well.
