How to Disable the Shutter Sound on your Japanese iPhone

A bit of background: If you own a Japanese iPhone, you probably know that you are unable to disable the shutter sound. This can be quite annoying for those that wish to take a photo without causing noise and disturbing others. There are several valid reasons for not wanting the shutter sound to play. 

To name a few: taking photos of your friends or food when out at a restaurant. Hearing that shutter sound draws unwanted attention from other guests and can be disturbing to them. You may want to take a photo of the whiteboard in a classroom without making noise and disturbing your fellow students. You may want to take a screenshot on your phone without making your colleagues think that you are taking a photo of them for some strange reason. The list goes on and on. 

If you like tinkering with things and want to try this out for fun, read on and I'll show you how to disable this feature from your Japanese iphone.

Backing up your Iphone App saved game/app data

If you have multiple iOS devices, you may run into a problem of transferring apps to other devices and keeping the saved data in that game or application. A good example of this is a app called My Japanese Coach which I use from time to time. Well, I sure as heck don't want to have to go from lesson 1 all the way through lesson X to get back to where I left off. If you redownload this app from the app store you will be left with a blank slate and will have to start the game over from the beginning. Luckily there is a way to avoid this. You will want to download a software called iExplorer.

My New Iphone! How did I live without it!

Actually, I have my classic 3rd generation ipod sitting right next to me. For those that don't remember what the 3rd gen looks like, it's the one with the red LED buttons. I have actually been using it quite frequently up until this weekend.
