Thanks for that, here's what I did:

Installed ADB drivers.

adb remount

adb shell

cd system/media/audio/ui

mv camera_click.ogg camera_click.ogg.back

mv VideoRecord.ogg VideoRecord.ogg.back

No more annoying sounds!

I decided to just rename them in case it broke.

In Astro File Manager you could go to:

/system/media/audio/ui

and rename camera_click.ogg

Not tried this though.

You still need adb to remount rw so may as well do the rename/delete too

I tried the above but got 'permission denied' - transcript follows:

$ mv camera_click.ogg camera_click.ogg.org

mv camera_click.ogg camera_click.ogg.org

failed on 'camera_click.ogg' - Read-only file system

$ chmod 664 camera_click.ogg

chmod 664 camera_click.ogg

Unable to chmod camera_click.ogg: Read-only file system

$ remount rw

remount rw

remount: permission denied

$ exit

I have su'd and the phone is rooted.

Any ideas please?

Many thanks - seg

Enter su before using these commands.

Thanks for your reply - as per my message above, I have already su'd - and as you see in my code above I have a '$' prompt not a '#' one.

$ exit

I have su'd and the phone is rooted.

Any more ideas, anyone?

Assuming you have clockwork recovery installed this should do the trick, copy to sd card, boot into recovery select apply zip from sd card and away you go.

Thanks for that, is it possible to remove the auto-focus beep as well?

Have you tried this in a terminal emulator directly on the phone?

When you enter su in a terminal emulator, the superuser app should pop up and ask to allow this action.

This is what I did:

connected the phone to the PC via USB

Run cmd, then in the command window:

> adb devices - got a device name back (I am doing this from memory, so cannot remember the exact name, it was something like P234B)

then

>adb shell

#su

su

$

I DO NOT THINK I SAW a notification on the phone - perhaps because the phone had been already rooted?

then navigated into the system/media/audio/ui folder (again, from memory) and then tried to rename the files as per the Original Post.

@rjm2k: Thank you for your suggestion and I will probably try this - it's just that I want to understand what I am doing wrong here.

Applied this, but the sound is still there ! B) Do I need to alter a setting or something ?

Thanks

If you have Root Explorer installed on your phone, you can also navigate to:

system/media/audio/ui

and rename the files camera_click.ogg and VideoRecord.ogg to something like VideoRecord.ogg.back.

Did the trick for me

Ive deleted the Files via he flashable zip, but unfortunately it's still there.

not all sounds though, just the focusing-one, that "duduuu". the click itself is gone. as are the files in the system folder...

i have R6 lite.

not sure what focusing sound there is, on mine it's just the mechanical sound of the lens adjusting that I can hear, nothing you can do about that
