Read thread, still want to ask...
So I read the entire thread and want to say, firstly, thank you @tliebeck
, for this program. I ended up finding the DIY solution in another thread, followed those instrux to edit the file directly. So, I'm thinking I did it correctly: when I execute your app it returns that "No Action Required." Go me!!
Nevertheless, I want to ask this question in this thread, since it might be related. I am running SGNote 3 VZW with BajaROM v16.1. Yes, platform.xml
was already modded with the ROM, but the WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE was not present, so I added it with the indicated permission/group. Anyhoo, here is the symptom I'm encountering: when I use the stock camera, with "save to sd" selected, the pic will save as instructed and I can open the pic file from gallery using the link/command from the camera app. If I close the camera app and open the gallery, the newly taken pic appears as a broken file (properties reported as a file size, but unable to view file). The same applies if trying to open it with any other file manager (tried all suggested). Next, if I reboot the phone the file completely disappears. Gone. So, changing the save path to device storage, the camera app saves and everything seems to proceed as expected, even after reboot. This is confusing me because I thought that fixing that line would stop this type of behavior. Also, I don't want to save to device storage. Yes, I know that's a preference and I'm grateful that I'm no longer losing pics, but it shouldn't be my only choice to use the camera.
I have not tried any third-party camera apps yet, but I'm willing. I picked up CameraZoom on Play Store once for a thin dime, and I think Amazon gave away a decent camera not too long ago. I know that there are some features of the Note 3 stock camera that aren't offered in the other camera apps I own or have looked at (yet). Any other insight and/or guidance is greatly appreciated.
