    do i need to root the phone to do this ?

    Hasn’t any sense because when the phone-voice is muted the camera shutter is muted to as well as when the voice is set on vibro-mode the camera voice is shut off as well. Usualy you have to avoid the camera sound at the same time as you have to avoid ring-sound to. For example if you are in library or somwhere else where you may not be noisy. On the other hand when you’re making photos outside or at any other place where you don’t need to avoid being noisy the camera shutter is quite atractive.

    So I don’t know why to make myself trouble and sofware changes if there isn’t any need to. Only to prove myself that I am kind a hacky freak…:)?
