    [*] Dont get Confused: In case you find Shutter.ogg or Shutter_multiple.ogg instead of camera_shutter.ogg then also rename it as Shutter.ogg.old or Shutter_multiple.ogg.old.

    [*] Device should be rooted: Your Huawei smartphone should be rooted to rename the Camera Shutter Sound. There is no other method available to rename the camera Sound without rooting the device.

    [*] Reversible Process: If you need the camera sound then again do the same procedure and rename the Camera_shutter.ogg.old to Camera_shutter.ogg, it will bring back the camera sound.

    [*] Huawei Stock Firmware: If you are looking for the Original Stock Firmware then head over to the Download Huawei Stock Firmware page.

    [*] Huawei USB Driver: If you are looking for the Original USB Driver, then head over to the Download Huawei USB Driver page.

    [*] Do not delete: Please do not delete the camera_shutter.ogg or any shutter sound from the UI folder as because it will help you to get back the camera sound whenever you want.
