One of the great things about having a jailbroken device is actually being able to change things to your own personal tastes. That doesn’t actually meaning being able to entirely change the look and feel of iOS – although it could if you so desired – but more being able to amend suitable parts of the system to allow it to better cater to your personality.

The new MirrorlessCamSound tweak in Cydia is one such package which does exactly that by changing the shutter sound of the stock iOS Camera app to make it sound like a high-end mirrorless camera.

The said tweak is one of those extremely simple packages which isn’t going to take up any heavyweight resources on the device. Nor should it actually clash with any other installed packages on the device. It’s essentially hooking into the native Camera app and bundling in its own audio file that is played through the device’s speakers when a photograph is captured.

Apple’s modern iPhones are extremely capable hardware. And as the company keeps telling us time and time again, are one of the most widely used cameras on the planet, with usage rivaling that of high-end DSLRs and the likes.

The output and ease of use may be premium, but there are some users who think the shutter sound attached to the Camera app is a little “cheap’ and gimmicky, and as such detracts from the experience. This latest tweak for jailbroken devices looks to do something about that with a simple, single installation.

The installation and use is extremely simple. Head into Cydia and get this installed onto your jailbroken iPhone, just like you would with any other package. Now, when you head into the native Camera app and snap an image, you will have a more premium noise which sounds just like a mirrorless camera. But only if you don’t have the device on silent, of course.

This is not going to go down as one of the most complex tweaks ever to grace a jailbroken iPhone, but it is definitely a worthwhile installation for those who have been looking for this small change,

MirrorlessCamSound will soon be available for free in the BigBoss repository on Cydia. Alternatively, you can download it right now from https://repo.d4ni.nl/ repository.
