Gallery issues on 4.3
I see a lot of posts, and I mean a great amount of posts, hundreds, about gallery not working and making the device reboot.
I've had that a lot, and what I do is use a file explorer to access dcim file on internal SD card and still choose gallery app to view my pics.
I'm under the impression that there's a conflict somewhere when the app is creating the preview where the folders grid appears. Well, is known that erasing everything and formatting both SD cards may solve this, but, why would I have taken pics if not to see them again later? Defies the purpose of saving the pics. If every time I flash I have to reformat and cannot paste back videos or pics taken before.
That brings me to something else but related. In my search for the perfect ROM, is clearly a personal choice and not a fact, I flashed Slimbean by prbassplayer and is flaweless with out any gallery issue or any issue for that matter. Every build since beta stages has worked well. I love it but I'm a flashing addict and I like all the newer bells and whistles other guys are adding. I'm in no way gonna ask Slim devs to change their minds and turn their ROM into a PA ROM.
In turn, I'm asking here; is there a way to get a working gallery like Slim's gallery on other ROMs? I mean no other ROM has a fully working gallery for me without a full formatting of my SD cards but slim. Can this be replicated on other ROMs?
I'm not complaining really, I've tried many ROMs and flash knowing the issues, I read the threads. I'm no dev nor have the time to learn or a PC with the capabilities to build ROMs. This is not a demand either. Is that I think slim guys are doing something different than the rest which results in a fully working gallery app.
Should I try to change gallery apps between ROMs and flash? Is it a bad idea?
Thanks in advance.
