e located in the original DCIM/Camera folder are gone and the videos which I recorded with Gcam and Stock camera are still there. The only way I can explain what happened is m
I am using Mi-Xplorer but the JPG files are gone. Even when I turn on the "show hidden files" option. I still have that corrupted file spinning and I still can't delete it. I have many other folders with pics. in my internal storage and they are still there, they didn't "disappear" or got deleted. What is surprising the hell out of me is the fact that all the JPG pictures taken with the stock camera and GCam that were located in the original DCIM/Camera folder are gone and the videos which I recorded with Gcam and Stock camera are still there. The only way I can explain what happened is maybe the internal storage tried to fix that corrupted image that was processing continuously (and still is btw) by deleting it , and in the process, it deleted all the image files that were/came from the default DCIM/Camera folder. My mistake was moving those files within the same storage, I should have moved them to my laptop instead. I am running out of options on how to get those pics. back so I'm thinking to do a hard reset of the phone and maybe hope to get some of the pics back with some recovery software.

I remember the size of the folder where I moved the pics and videos. It used to be almost 8 GB, now it is 3.4 GB because all the pics are gone and only the videos are still there.

a link where some users have experienced the same issue with Samsung devices:

Tough cookie for me bud! I hope someone else here has more experience with the matter...

Could you however, try some of the higher rated recovery software from now, before you try to reset the phone?

I tried a few, they couldn't even find a single one from more than 700 pictures that disappeared. It's as if I never even took those pictures. Usually with the recovery software I can find a few of the pics that were deleted/lost but this time nothing...

I've had issues where some photos didn't show up, and using a 3rd party app fixed it, but never heard of this issue where photos disappear.

Hope you get it sorted soon..
I think they're gone forever at this point. Even installing disk digger and doing a search with it., I was able to see that a few pics that I deleted a few months ago were restorable. But not a single one of the ones that were deleted recently come up with all the recovery softwares that I have used. it is as if I never even took those pics...

It really sounds like as if they were moved somewhere else and not deleted...

Amuse me.. Go to MY FILES, click on the 3 dots and select SHOW HIDDEN FOLDERS.

They might magically appear.. I doubt it, but worth a try.

No idea about stock rooted but both working on DrKetan Rom
Dr. Ketan, now I'm using SM-G998BZKHSEK phone intended for Ukraine market. Phone is rooted & I installed TWRP. I would like to flash your ROM, but need my carrier's aggregation to work properly. As I understand your ROM is built based on different region. Please advise how can I flawlessly flash it.

What did you do to make DEX/SmartView work with Knox ticked?
Did you adjust
build.prop with
"wlan.wfd.hdcp = disable"
?

Plse copy the entire dcim folder to pc...no matter what it says...format in twrp and flash rom like in downloadfolder copy back to internal storage and see if phone can see them ...
What should I format in TWRP ? The DCIM folder or what ? The folder size has decreased in size since the pictures are not there anymore, I remember it being bigger in size before the pictures disappeared/got deleted/ were lost.

Does anyone have a problem when you make a call? Every time, I'm trying to call someone but it always showed me that CALL CAN'T CONNECT. But after a couple of tries, it connected. Anyone knows how to fix it

Did the photos show up in your PC once you copied them from your phone? If so, thats good news..

Id suggest doing a full factory reset, and reinstalling the ROM from scratch, something went wrong somewhere..

Let us know how you go.

    Hi! So no need to flash that CSC stuff that came with SB1?
    If your csc is part of OXM, you must flash it. Already explained in installation instructions.

    bmonteiro and Other test users​

    Kindly post your full review about SB1 as well about OneUI 4
    I have installed since two days but hardly opened any app other than settings, just spent two days to prepare ROM for users so any one can install it without going through pain of installing official beta. I have really no idea what is new in this beta. Code wise there are lot differences. Also samsung and google started behaving like apple and making tough for modification with every OS update. Let's see how further development goes!

    I'm on the ROM for about 3 hours now, no random reboots or anything of the sort.

    All my apps are working properly, made some calls successfully. Was not getting notification, but I noticed that now all apps that I open are asking for notification permission, so not a problem, just something to keep in mind.

    Some fame drops here and there, but I'm following the other thread where non-root users are also reporting this, so it's not related to this one being custom. Another thing for users wanting to trying out this one is that Safetynet will not pass, even for non-root users beta versions does not pass safetynet.

    Besides that, One UI 4.0 is almost identical to 3.1, some new features like battery protection, extra dim (which I really like)

    Can't say anything related to battery yet as it's too soon.
