    I searched all over and found nothing on the X. How do you scilence the shutter and focus dings the camera gives? I've got my phone in silent mode and it still was making noise.

    I've only noticed that if you swipe the phone to be silent in the lock screen the camera snap sound will be silent but you still hear the beep beep focus sound....

    there are camera apps (like 360 pro) that will silence all camera sounds

    If I go into the system folder and remove the shutter and recording audio clips would that stop them? I really don't have a grasp for the system yet, but wouldn't that work?

    I was wondering this today as well, doesn't help when you are in a "quiet zone"

    Do you mean that barely audible creaking sound that you can't hear from 3 feet away?

    No, on the Droid X the autofocus action and confirmation makes a loud BEEP-BEEP. It's horrible. So far nothing short of another application (perhaps) will solve the problem. Turning down ringer volume will silence the shutter sound, but no luck for the AF.

    --EDIT I see you are referring to sounds that may still be made using SilentSnap. Sorry about that. Still searching for the following answer, though.

    With root access I was easily able to rename the shutter sound so it is not accessed, but I can't find the AF sound anywhere.

    Does anyone know the location of the auto-focus sound for the default Droid X camera??

    I found the shutter file in the system folder, but has anyone seen the focus beep?

    You might want to rename the sounds rather than deleting them. Then you still have them if you ever want them back.

    silent snap on droidx stops the camera shutter sound effect

    silent snap on droidx DOES NOT stop the focus BEEP BEEP


    If someone has an easy way of getting a droidx camera without sound effects, please post. Thanks!

    On my original Droid, when you put the ringer down to vibrate, it would silence the camera completly. On the X, you still hear the focus beep...sucks!

    Yeah I don't really see a legitimate use here for any of this.

    EDIT: Aside from taking pictures in a classroom (whiteboard, charts) and business settings.

    Toycam is completely silent. Not top quality, but works.

    I found an app called "Retro Camera" and everything is silent but it has its own drawbacks. The field of view is much smaller and there a few different choices of old cameras to use to get it back in color.

    I was at a wedding 2 days after the X came out and I wanted to take a ton of pictures but I had to be extremely reserved because of the focus beeps. Really sucked. I've also searched high and low for the beep sound but haven't had any luck. The camera click silences with the phone on vibrate so I'm not worried about that. I would almost call this a "bug" that Motorola needs to fix. Silent should be silent across the board.

    I think the real reason it doesn't go 100% silent is to protect people. Thats why newer cameras & cell phones have the shutter or click sound. This way, some guy at the mall trying it take pics up womens skirts isn't going to get away with it as easilly as with a totally silent camera.
