Hi Gurus,

I have flashed S4-gt-i9500, many time with the custom roms.

Recently I have flashed it with AICP kitkat NIGHTLY rom. Everything was working fine, later I have switched it back to my stock rom backup.

After restoring the stock rom backup, everything was working fine, however after two days I am not able to download/share any photos on whatsapp even I am not able to change the profile picture as well.

Tried to share pictures with Facebook and Viber, both did not work.

I had not made any changes and suddenly started to get this error in whatsapp.

Tried reinstalling whatsapp. Clearing data/cache. nothing worked

Please guyzzz help me.. I really want to use whats app in stock rom.

God knows what went wrong all of a sudden.

WhatsApp Error: Sharing failed please try again

Is this a known issue with android? Its happening with facebook/viber/whatsapp)

Here is how I switched back to stock rom:
Stock Rom->backup->Custom Rom (AICP NIGHTLY)->restore stock backup->use whatsapp->get the error.

I even can not see my friends profile pictures. it shows me blank screen. (Formatting the SD card also did not work.)

Appreciate all your help guyzz

Switching it back to custom rom AICP, whatsapp and other apps work fine with the file sharing option.

Any inputs on this?

I recently also had this problem. This is the fix I used.

1. Rename your DCIM folder to something else.
2. Use your camera gallery to recreate the DCIM folder.
3. Copy back all the photos only into the new DCIM folder.
4. It'll work back to normal.

I discovered this from the forum post about using external sd card. I checked that out and it worked, but wasn't happy with the solution.
