Hello all I rooted again recently after getting the 3 XX update from verizon.

and now that im rooted I cant get gallery to see any images in any folder except what is now taken with camera app.

any ideas.

restarted phone, cleared cache, restarted app, shut down phone and turned back on, tried different camera apps, different gallery apps....... all with same result that it will not see any of my pictures or videos I took before rooting or see any images in any other folder.

so im lost as to what to do to fix it.

Rom is OTA plus rooted is all.... nothing else was changed.

Im still a newbie but I know enough and i cant figure it out.

cheers all.

If I remember correctly, the files are stored in a different place in 4.2,2 then in 4.1.2. Do some searching to find the folder, and move your pictures there

ive tried moving folders and files..... but the issue is that the pics i have are in the same folder as the 1 pic i took once rooted..... so they are in the same folder. its like the gallery wont see anything else but what is taken from the camera now.

just stuck as to why its doing that..... had pics be seen in other folders before. i even have another folder on the root of the phone, well emulated sd card.... called Pics and it does not see those either.

noticed though that the camera does see the pics i took before but when i open the gallery to view those pics they are not there.

even booted into hboot and bootloader then restarted and still nothing.

found an answer i think
Ok think i figure out the issue.

the pictures i had on my device were not in a folder that the gallery app recognizes by default, so it was a naming issue and location issue. I moved the old pics taken with my camera before rooting to the folder labeled "Camera" and now the gallery an see all my images.

Before pics were in the folder named Camera....and now they are in a folder named 100MEDIA... very strange but happy it all ok now.

hope my issue helps someone sort out a problem if they ever have that issue like i did.

cheers all
