    It's widely known that iphones sold in Japan/Korea aren't able to mute the camera shutter by law. I want to try following methods to kill the sound, and I would like to know from all you Jailbreak pros if the options are viable.

    1. try restoring the iphone 6 with firmware from US. hoping it would change the hardcode of the sound to US mutable version.

    2. Jailbreak my iphone -> change/del the name of the sound clip -> restore to stock firmware. I'm guessing restoring will regenerate the sound clip file? if so then this won't work

    3. Jailbreak my iphone -> dig around to find the hardcode command to see which setting determines the JP/KR setting, then change the sound setting to OFF upon MUTE. then restore to stock firmware. Changing the actual variable so even if the restoration regenerate the data in #2 this will still work. I'm just not sure if this is at all possible?

    Staying Jailbreak status isn't my option since my financial apps won't be usable upon JB, and I need them.

    Thanks lots!

    Can't you try to install something to spoof the Jailbreak status? I know there's couple things out there

    When I turn on the silent switch and use the camera to take a photo, it doesn't make a shutter sound. Is that not possible on Japan/Korea iPhone's?

    It seems that's the only option I have in getting the shutter sound go away.

    Thanks bud


    Sadly no, We have this weird law to make it mandatory to always make the shutter sound when taking photos with mobile phones. It's the lawmakers bang up job for trying to gouge more vote from feminine people. I mean pervs don't take photos with mobile phones. they use pro gears :/

    If you do go the jailbreak route look under the pangu icon/Utility it has a setting to disable the JP/KR no shutter sound built into the jailbreak.
