Has anyone come across a method to change the file naming convention on the HTC One M8? I want to have the date and time stamp included in the file name like other Android devices utilize. This not only helps easily identify the images without checking image meta data, but eliminates duplicate file names after flashing new roms.

Thanks for any help!

Yes, please! I just got a replacement and all photo file names are duplicating. I can't find anywhere how to change the naming convention.

Huge fail on HTC's part with this one. Here's an alternative to help sort through your issue.

NameExif

run the free program on your old files and it'll rename them according to the exif date data.
