    Silent Camera click tweak.

    So guys I came from the EVO 4G world which is one of the most supported phone for hacking/modding/flashing etc. Well yesterday I got my Mercury and thought I would have some fun with it. I followed the root procedure above and rooted my phone. Then I decided its time to do some tweaks and have some phone with the phone.

    1. Silent Camera Click.

    a. Root the phone following this :http://www.cricketusers.com/cricket-...cury-easy.html

    b. After that install Root Explorer from the Market

    c. Download this:
    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3730513/Camera_Click.ogg




    d. Connect your phone to your laptop and mount USB Mass Storage.

    e. Copy file to your sdcard on the phone I made a folder called Mods in My Documents.

    f. Unmount the USB Mass Storage

    g. Now open Root Explorer and navigate to /system/media/audio/ui and hit the Mount R/W and the folder becomes read write capable.
    then long press Camera_Click.ogg and select move.

    h. Then navigate to /sdcard/My Documents/ Then hit the menu button and select New Folder

    i. Name the folder Originals Hit the paste button and the file is moved here.

    h. Now navigate back to the folder you stored the file you downloaded from dropbox on the sdcard. Long press Camera_Click.ogg and select move.

    j. Navigate back to /system/media/audio/ui and select paste then hit MOUNT R/O to put the folder back to Read Only status

    Hit the home button and restart your phone.

    You are done and enjoy a silent camera click!

    I just like silent phones. Except for text and ringtone. Never meant to make it a resell to allow immoral camera use. You can also do the same with low battery warning .ogg file so it just gives you a visual notification and no sound. I've silenced everything in my phone so far. I did play around with the Jarvis running on emergency battery for low battery notification but got annoyed with it after a day.

    Or you can just turn the ringer volume all the way down, camera is silent this way as well.

    Oh I didn't mean to sound negative towards your method, I just wasn't sure how many people know the camera can also be silenced by turning the volume down.

    Speaking of volume do you know if its possible to change or silence the annoying "BEEP" tone every time you use the volume buttons on the phone? My friends Galaxy S2 uses a much less abrasive tone.
