In the year 2020, we have a new way to fix the Japan iPhone’s camera shutter sound. This one is much more faster, no need soldering skill and safe comparing to the method that I made in 2018 – iPhone Shutter Sound Fix v1.
But this v2 method can only support certain models of iPhone. It doesn’t matter from Japan, Korea or others, they all the same.
If you are in hurry and don’t want to read all the text, then just click here to see the video – How to fix Japan iPhone Camera Shutter Sound 2020.
- iPhone 6 / 6 Plus
- iPhone 6S / 6S Plus
- iPhone 7 / 7 Plus
- iphone 8 / 8 Plus
- iPhone X
- PC with Window and iTunes installed.
- Internet Connection (For restore and activate)
- iBox Mini 2020 (NAND programming tool)
- Lightning USB cable
Thanks to the iBox Mini 2020, we now don’t need to remove the NAND from the logic board to reprogram. It’s good news for those who don’t have micro-soldering skills.
Now we can accomplish shutter sound fix without dissemble anything and done in less than 1 hour.
What is NAND programming tool?
NAND programming tool is let us able to edit the hard disk data. The hard disk in iPhone is called Nand Flash, this is why we called it NAND programming tool.
As my old article said, the NAND itself have a fixed data about country and region.
In order to really fix the shutter sound without any side-effect is to change the country code. This is why we need the tool to do it.
Everything is not affected. You can even update or erase the iPhone.
It also will be higher value if you selling your iPhone. Malaysia dealers are like to check the country code to offer you a price.
So much better than Jailbreak.
iBOX - A NAND tools without need to soldering
Recently a guy invented a way to reprogram the iPhone NAND with just a DCSD cable. But that way can only support in MAC OS. It can’t do it in Window PC.
But not long after, other teams created a tool that doing exactly same job but it can supports the Window PC. They called it iBox.
China is a super copy cat country. Once you found something that earn money good, the neighbour sure copy your way.
This is why you can see a same tool but with different packing and name.
I just list down two that appeared recently. (June 2020)
It doesn’t matter which one you bought, they are the same.
Don’t ask me which one is better, they are really the same but using the same software with different name. They both compatible to each other program too.
You can even use this with other program like JC or WL.
This tool is only to help you enter “Purple Screen Mode”.
Actually it just put the iPhone into the state of “engineer mode”, so then we can reprogram it. When the iPhone is “engineer mode” state, the screen is displaying full purple or green.
But in our community, we called it “Purple Screen mode”. Very less interesting.
I posted photo of two similar tools below.
They told me it's impossible
No. It’s possible. I fixed at least few hundreds of Japan iPhone until now. They told you like that because they don’t know how.
Just recently because this kind of tools released, I get too many technicians from all over the world are asking me how to do it.
Some of them even said it’s a fake video that I uploaded in 2018. Some said I jailbreak it.
I really don’t have time to reply everyone of them.
Why not you just share the video below to them? They can do this easily with this kind of tools. A factory setting that cure your iPhone camera shutter sound.
This is NOT jailbreak method!
This is NOT a “Jailbreak” method. The method I used is “Factory Reprogram” which has zero side-effect. You can update or restore the iPhone without need to fix it again. It’s an original setting.
So this time I just made a full video of How to fix the iPhone shutter sound officially without Jailbreak 2020.

End-users and customers FAQs
For end-users or customers please read this all before inquiry.
Yes. You still can update, restore or whatever. The fix is not affected you to update.
No. It’s not related totally. The fix is just to reprogram the boot-file to a “normal” iPhone, the boot file inside contain a country code. So then the iOS will treat your iPhone is not from Japan or Korea.
Yes. You should backup the data by using iTunes or your iCloud. Because we need to clean and restore the iPhone after the fix. All the contents will be erased and the iOS will be updated to the latest.
If somehow you want to make it back, pass the iPhone to kids to prevent them from being a pervert, yes. It can be returned to exactly original without a problem.
Yes, why not? One month.
But the warranty is not on your hardware. We only guarantee hardware will be okay in the progress, since we need to reassemble the screen and logic board.
This is why we will going to check all your iPhone functions condition before proceed.
Because if the technician is not professional, he might accidentally killed the Face ID.
RM80 for models listed above.
It should be 1 hour around. (Appointment needed)
What? I see your video you only take 15 minutes!
Yes. But maybe a new iOS version released suddenly, so we need the time to download it.
Also, I didn’t including the time of safely dissemble the logic board and reinstall a new “water-resistance seals”.
Please don’t imagine we remove it like a Nokia 3310. Pak-pak-pak?
Only careless technician would dissemble it quickly by force and scratching the device.
Professional are using pre-heater to open it nicely, no need knife.
