Hello, All!

I received an S4 as a gift two days ago for my birthday (MK2 build), and immediately rooted it. Annoyed with the ridiculous amount of bloatware on the device, I took it upon myself to begin deleting unwanted apps via Titanium Backup. I didn't think I uninstalled anything that I needed,I tried to stick to just the Samsung, Verizon and Amazon apps, but can't remember everything I uninstalled. Initially, I didn't notice any negative effects of my actions. That is, until I went to open up my gallery, Which freezes the phone for two seconds, then gives me the "Gallery has stopped" message. As for the camera, when I open it, it stalls, then opens. But when it opens, I can still see some of my other app icons around the border, and the camera itself, although open, doesn't work at all.

Any suggestions? What did I uninstall? I assume this can be fixed?

Thank you in advance,

Matt

I also installed a few mods void Xposed, which I tried to attach a screenshot of, but I can't because of my gallery situation. But I'm almost positive it has nothing to do with any of those.

Did you try clearing data on gallery?

Indeed I did. I ended up getting my Odin on. At which point, I reactivated my Xposed Modules. After doing this, my camera and gallery took a dump again. So I narrowed it down to the mods (not sure which one, I just deactivated all), opposed to getting crazy with my uninstalling in Titanium backup. Thanks for the responses, fellas.

For anybody interested, I just narrowed it down, and found the culprit. It was a module called Swipeback in Xposed.

Had this happen to me, it was my SD card. Our phones require Class 3 or higher.

Interesting. I wouldn't have thought of that. My card is a class 10, but I'll keep that in mind for future issues while helping others. Thank you for the response.
