Having a weird one with the Photos app. Photos that are deleted, keep re-populating after a couple of hours. It's over 200 images...

HTC One M8, rooted, SuperSU'd, and then flashed with TWRP to the standard Google Play Edition of KK 4.4.2 (that supposedly keeps OTA updates). I do have a 32gig SD card installed (technically I didn't format the SD card in the phone, just installed it and it was recognized and started working). The SD card does have a few apps and other data (music) on it.

Photos app on the M8 is NOT signed into my Google account (verified in the Photos app settings section). Looking at the Photos app on Google via my computer browser, these images do NOT show up (deleted, and emptied trash a couple days ago).

These images are not part of my Google Drive.

It almost seems like the Photos app thinks it is deleting the images, but a permissions issues keeps it from happening (even though the Photos app image view thinks it does).

Which kind of seems like what is going on, but I don't know how to solve if that's what it is. I had also installed Pixlr Express and Camera ZOOM a couple weeks ago. I've since deleted these two apps, but their subdirectory remnants remain...

Any ideas on this?

TIA.

Hey There,


I read this somewhere, that the 4.4.2 Android has issues deleting stuff -obviously pictures in this case- from the SDcard..

They will correct it with 4.4.3. ... or you have the chance to install a custom rom..it is prolly fixed there
