This is so annoying,
I have tried everything I could find online,

I removed the SD card to eliminate that as an option related to a corrupt image/ card.

I cleared Gallery the data under manage applications.

With ES file explorer

I deleted the com.cooliris.media folder multiple times

I renamed all dirs to hide them from the Gallery indexing.
Example renamed “DCIM” to ”.DCIM”

I opened and examined the file chunk_0 in
/com.cooliris.media/cache/local-album-cache
I was hoping i could see how far or were it crashed by the last dir it indexed.
After hiding all the dirs. I got it to this.

Data in “chunk_0(this file will grow as dirs are scanned and files are found)” opened in a hex editor.

..US..en............./...........4.......4...........b..intro..video/mp4.......................4.........O.{.....O.u... w..............:.............../

Not sure if this is a hit on what is crashing the gallery?

I'm guessing a factory reset didn't work either?

I never use Gallery. Ever. So I wouldn't have an exact idea why it was going crazy.
Are you rooted and do you have Titanium Backup Free/Pro?
If so, back up the gallery app. Then delete it from the /system.
Restart your phone and restore the Gallery app and make it a system app again.

i made the back up of the gallery, uninstalled it, when i try to recover/install it from the back up the phone stays in an install loop.
I have to reboot the phone.

now i deleted it how do i reinstall it?
I have gallery apk from the backup and the original is still under /system/app/com.cooliris.media.apk

when run the apk i get an error, application not installed.

I tried to use adb with no luck.

F:\~droid\root backup restore files\SuperOneClickv2.1.1-ShortFuse\ADB>adb instal
l gal.apk
993 KB/s (458660 bytes in 0.451s)
pkg: /data/local/tmp/gal.apk
Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_DEXOPT]


any pointers?

I don’t think titanium is an option now.

as it never finishes installing. i let it go all night.
The Gallery has been deleted and i only have the option to restore. My only options are to restore App only or App+Data. both don’t finish.

so i have been reading you can force/push installs. i must be doing something wrong as it seems a restriction is preventing the other install methods,

at this point the only reason i care is i cant view images in 3d.

Using adb

adb shell
su
mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/stl9 /system
exit
exit
adb push Gallery.apk /system/app

Reboot the phone.
