How to: Turn off Camera shutter Sounds in Nokia Asha 305

Previously, ‘singhnsk‘ wrote about doing the same with the Asha 311 and Asha 310. So thought I should write this to guide as well to help all those who’re frustrated with the camera shutter sounds which the Asha 305 makes when clicking a picture.

The procedure is same as it was for Nokia Asha 311 And 310..

  1. Download the Backup file (named Camera Sounds 305.NBF)  from here
    Asha 305 Camera Sound
  2. Transfer it to your phone, or else if you’re downloading it on your phone, just continue to the next step.
  3.  Now open the location where you have kept the Backup file and open it. It will ask for the confirmation. Tap continue.
  4. The phone will restart and that’s it. The camera sounds will be turned off and you’ll also start seeing an option in camera settings to turn the sounds on or off anytime as needed.

Just restore it and you are done..

Please don’t attempt clicking someone without his/her permission as this hinders with the privacy of the others

Did this work for you? How were the results after the restore? Let us know in the comments section below  😛

    Both the backups provided in 2 links by Wolf didnt work for my asha 305 which has updated v7.42
    seriously i need to switch off my shutter sound

  7. Abhishek Acharya August 23, 2013 at 1:35 am #

    Also my nokia mail and nokia chat and nokia maps are not working in asha 305. Tried many times to work it out by hard reset. But of no use…. Help me out… Plz…..

      With so many issues, you should consider getting your phone flased from an Approved Nokia Care Center.

      • Abhishek August 23, 2013 at 1:11 pm #

        Can u provide any solution for switching off shutter sound. Both links provided r not working. 🙁

        • singhnsk August 23, 2013 at 5:03 pm #

          Actually I can’t right now. This was supposed to be a job done by Wolf, but he missed it somehow. I need to get hands on an Asha 305 first before I can do that.
          What you can do is that you can delete the variants file in the Phone’s Hidden Memory and then you’ll be able to turn off the camera sounds.

          • Abhishek Acharya August 24, 2013 at 11:35 am #

            How to access variants file???

          • Abhishek August 25, 2013 at 11:33 am #

            Can we use Mobimb to remove nokia store, music ,mail and browser to gain internal memory?
            If yes then can we reinstall them in mass memory? Or can we simply move them into mass memory ( external memory) to gain internal space.

    hey bro! 🙂 its not working but its ok, I don’t even care. I just tried it for fun. But can you pleeeeeaase, pleeeeeaase, pleeeeeaase, pleeeeeaase, pleeeeeaase, pleeeeeaase, pleeeeeaase, pleeeeeaase, pleeeeeaase do something for the 240p videos playing problem in SW version 7.42 of Nokia Asha 305???????!!! I NEED IT SO BAD!!! I’M EVEN READY TO PAY YOU FOR IT IF YOU WANT!!! I BEG YOU!!! PLEEEEEAASE DO SOMETHING FOR THE 240P VIDEOS PLAYING PROBLEM!!! PLEEEEEAASE BRO IT’D MAKE MY LIFE IF YOU’LL DO IT!!! PLEEEEEAASE!!! 🙂

    • Narender December 11, 2013 at 3:41 pm #

      Well buddy.. Don’t know what to say, but firstly I don’t myself have a 305. secondly the settings are built into the system files which can’t be edited. So it gets likely impossible to do anything there. Phone was unstable and Nokia made the change. Likely impossible that this will be reverted.

      • Sam :) December 11, 2013 at 8:56 pm #

        oh come on! 🙁 the previous SW version 5.92 was playing it smoothly! and the Nokia also made an announcement very boldy that they aren’t gonna release another update 🙁 in Asha 305! you’re the only hope mate ’cause we can’t even downgrade the SW 🙁 pleeeeeaase?

        • Narender December 11, 2013 at 9:46 pm #

          Nokia made no such announcement. The issue with the previous version was that the high quality videos used to freeze the system which then required a restart.
          Sadly I can’t help in any way here. Its not possible to edit the main code from the files to enable disable such video playback. Its only in Nokia’s hands and I’m sure its no happening now. So you need to get a new phone if you need playback of better videos.

  16. Fasil Zubair February 12, 2014 at 2:06 am #’s not working…PLsss…give me another way to off the shutter soundsss 🙁

    • Fasil Zubair February 12, 2014 at 2:11 am #

      my phones version is 7.42

      • Narender February 12, 2014 at 6:05 am #

        Sorry but this post wasn’t authored by me. The other way is a bit tricky and can cause some apps to break, but atleast it does work. You just need to delete the variants_defaults file in your phone’s hidden memory and the option will be enabled.

        • Fasil Zubair February 19, 2014 at 5:47 am #

          THANKS…….Buddy….It’s working 🙂 🙂 🙂 <3
