On finally upgrading my Samsung Galaxy S II phone to Jelly Bean

A year ago, I got my first smartphone, a Samsung Galaxy SII through T-Mobile.

At some point I upgraded it to Ice Cream Sandwich. Unfortunately, that introduced a terrible limitation for my phone: I found that I could not disable the shutter-clicking sound effect when capturing video!! I looked online and found that it was not possible without rooting. This made me truly angry because it meant that my phone was unusable for capturing video. Friends told me I should root the phone already, rather than submit to Samsung’s draconian disabling of the preference to turn off the shutter sound.

Jelly Bean just finally arrived for my phone. I installed it, and the problem went away. Whew.
