You have to have location data turned on for that of course in the camera settings. Or you can enter "dogs" and find the photos of dogs you've taken as well

I'm up to about 60000 pictures from 2005 until now from 10 different pieces of tech. For some weird reason, it didn't transfer metadata from my early pictures from college, so the dates all are listed as July 2001, though they aren't from then. Any from 2009 on are all right because that was when I went with my first Android phone. Searching in photos is definitely getting better.

MY POST - This was not any sort of a dig @ you. I appreciate your responding with attempts to assist.

The repeated posts thing seems to occur frequently and for my own peculiar reasons I find it to be humorous.

On the day of quoting and commenting on your post, I had exhausted my allotment of "Thanks."

So, that's now rectified, your input properly thanked.

The repeated posts occur when the device has poor/slow connection.

Cripes! You win! 60,000? Qualifies you for prolific photographer status in my book.

This is unfortunate and I have experienced similar in transitions.
However, the intent to BU was there and you do still have your photos.
LOTS of 'em and over a long time. You've kudos coming for maintaining that.

I cringe when I hear or read of people or members here losing photos (or any data) because it is so easily avoidable...
and yet, so easy to ignore mitigating procedures.
I try not to sound "preachy" regarding BUs, but it IS that important. One can either have or have not.
Besides, preachers remain sinners, though ideally much less frequent or egregious.
I'm not above this and can be proven to be a sinner with one ill-timed lack of foresight or an oversight.

Agreed.
Though I have concerns about at what cost comes this and many other conveniences.
My willful ignorance props up my flimsy bliss.
See? No preacher status here for me.

Well, that's not humorous. That's not funny at all.
WTH is wrong with me?

Thanks for the explanation.

Uninstall absolutely all the (phone) drivers from your pc and do a clean install of those that you´ll go to need.

There are many tutorials about the correct way to achieve it there are here some examples from several https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...NCF1DVR7zZjwtw

https://rootmygalaxy.net/mediatek-mt...-vcom-drivers/

https://elandroidefeliz.com/drivers-...l-instalacion/

All the USB drivers versions https://androidmtk.com/download-mtk-usb-all-drivers

No results? two more actions before to hang out (or take it to a repair center):
- If you are sure that tried all the combination keys in all the possible ways you have a last chance through test point method: https://snehakudari.wordpress.com/20...-point-method/

- And send a request to the official partner claiming for the right firmware for your device that it could be most probably the main reason behind your issue: https://www.echomobiles.com/vitrine/horizon-lite-plus

Hey, thank you for your reply,

UPDATE : I found the exact firmware and I flashed it but I still get a black screen (I got the green thing "Download OK") but nevertheless, compared to before my phone vibrates, You have an idea ?

Flash as recommended just lk.bin, preloader and scatter in the same folder, only these files, disconnect device, exit the tool, now do a second flashing session with all the files including these.

Hi, I bought a new, realtively cheap android phone. It has more or less stock android 9 (with branding). I would like to root it. Does anyone have an idea how I could go about that? I can only find tutorials for UMIDIGI A3 Pro that apparently can not be applied on A3

Try this: CLICK HERE.
Read the thread as you see fit.
I direct to this post specifically as a preemptive strike, targeting your anticipated follow-up statement of it being 8.1.0 which would be true. However, there is this glimmer.

KEYWORDS= UMIDIGI A3 Pro typed in search box. [FORUM, as opposed to THREAD]
Should you be inclined to enter this, additional pertinent information may be revealed.

--EDIT--
DISREGARD - A more careful reading on my part indicates you do NOT have PRO.
It would seem there is no applicable offering here on XDA
.
My apologies for wasting your time.

Please upload some screenies from the original zip inside, and from the tool in the flash process. Also Try to enter to recovery (usually vol up+pwr) and factory reset it.... And... See if you can enter to fastboot (usually vol down+pwr). You have to be sure that the firmware is not lower than the previous running.

Follow this tutorial first: https://unofficialtwrp.com/twrp-reco...ot-umidigi-a3/ I recommend that you replaced the root solution for Magisk so SuperSu is deprecated https://www.xda-developers.com/how-to-install-magisk/ download some version/s of DM-Verity from here https://www.androidinfotech.com/no-verity-opt-encrypt take a copy of it to your sdcard, you could be need it in order to can boot up again to system after root it.
