    Why would one need this.. Well to take pictures of persons or things with out them knowing of course! I like to take pictures of my cats and the shutter wakes them or makes them move so I needed a way to silence it.

    I searched around and found Peek-A-Boo trial, which rocked and sucked. It works but not with the tours auto focus. So although it took 5 pics in a row, silently, I had to select take new pic each time for it to do so.

    Anyway I got over it and started playing with OS's.. I did a hybrid update to something from stock to one of the first hybrids. Since then I have been doing full wipes and restores [Never restoring peek-a-boo] and the newest hybrid and OS the day they leak. Currently 5.0.0.238/5.0.0.273/5.0.0.296.

    And I just realized.. My camera doesn't have a shutter sound anymore! At all, ever.

    comments?

    cool but, damn son, I don't have the guts to constantly wipe out and redo my BB and load a bunch of nonstandard stuff on it. Clearly one of those times you did so wiped out whatever makes the camera shutter noise.

    I need the thing to work, like, all the time. Is that your "play around" phone or what?

    there is a free app out there somewhere that allows you to add a mute option to the menu when in camera. it works perfect and once muted, stays muted until a reset.

    do a search for previous threads

    Its my personal phone. I do the same thing with my work 8830we all the time. If you can do a wipe you can do an install then a fresh install whats to worry about?

    well.. maybe like camera sounds turning off unexpectedly and other strange glitches. I dunno... maybe I'm paranoid but I just feel like if you screw with something enough you're gonna break it.

    well I downloaded a program to make it not make the noise so thats not unexpected. Its wanted.

    and with the hybrid I use I notice ZERO glitches.

    Also despite my illiteracy I am the man at this ****.

    camera mute worked great on my tour and curve. I now have QL so its not needed any more. It is a great free alternative to Quick launch. Quick launch is the best app I have ever bought.
