[HOWTO] Disable shutter sound in Huawei camera app

The shutter sound of Huawei's camera app can be quite annoying. Luckily there is a way to disable it. You can do the fix right on your device - all you need is root access and a file manager / text editor that can use root privileges (I use AntTek explorer with it's built-in text editor).

Here is how to do it:
  • Open the file /system/build.prop for text editing. It is not on the SD-card, it is relative to the device root directory.
  • Scroll down to about three quarters of the file and search for something like this:
    Code: Select all
    #/*<DTS2012032307046 wangkai 20120328 begin*/   
    ro.camera.sound.forced=1   
    #/*DTS2012032307046 wangkai 20120328 end>*/   
  • Now change the middle line to
    Code: Select all
    ro.camera.sound.forced=0   
  • Save the file and restart the phone

This disables the camera shutter sound. The camera autofocus sound (that can be nearly as annoying as the shutter sound) depends on the audio (music) volume setting. If the music volume is muted also no autofocus sound will be played.
