Default [Q][i9305][CM10.1] How to save photos to externalSD ?

Dear all,

I'm using CM10.1 with my i9305 - thanks ti Codeworks and all involved in getting CM on this device !

Is there a way to configure default storage path to external SD for photos ? I didn't succeeded to find any menu or settings to do such, and new pictures are saved in internal DCIM directory..

That's not so critical, but I / we have to backup picture first before any factory reset..

Many thanks in advance for your help or guidelines on this topic ! :thumbup:

Chris

I use this camera app and it gives the option.

That being said, factory reset should not format the internal sd, so you shouldt lose your photos, but backups are always good

Many thanks vkggg ! I've flashed it using CWM and this camera app is great (panorama!) but I have only few options as shown on the enclosed snapshot.. Anything wrong with the install ?

Hmm I get all advertised options in the screenshot. Could you try setting your language to english and checking the settings?

Language changed to English (UK) but still the same items in menu. I should maybe reflash camera now ?

Press to focus then there should be an options button around the focus. Reflashing will get you nowhere and also I believe that 'store location' which is supposed to push photos & videos to the SD is broken

Done, but same issue. I will investigate later and will let you know about any findings.

Anyway, this camera update is great for CM10.1 users !

OK so : data / factory reset + re-flash camera zip file => success, storage option is there and working perfectly. I even flash the new CM10.1 version (build 20130222) + flash camera and it works !

Many, many thanks vkggg for your help, really appreciated !! :thumbup: :beer:
