The gallery bug still exists, everytime i reboot the gallery won't load any of my pictures. After maybe a day i have to use a file manager to rescan SD card again and again and then the pictures show up. Things i've tried:
Getting a new sd card
Reflashing the rom (clean)
every other troubleshoot

The only thing that seems to work is going to another ROM. Any insight into this?
Have you tried using a different gallery app like Quick Pic, etc?

Thank you for taking the time to reply. I've tried using many different gallery apps but the issue still persists. On every restart only a handful of media shows up excluding music and i have to repeat the same process over the course of a day or two to get my pictures to show up. The mediascanner is running in the background but doesn't seem to pick up on new media.

P.S Eliminated all .nomedia files, issue still there.

what is the recommended filesystem for external sds?

for me, EXT4 is working fine with XENON Rom. Otherwise ExtSD should be good to go

Sounds like an issues with the Mediascanner service. @iceandfire was something changed in there? Maybe with the patches applied in the latest update?

Nothing was changed regarding to media scanner. This is the only report of such issue. That's why it's hard to figure out.

I have the same exact problem. I think I had it from build 5 on, but can't be 100% sure. I skipped build 6. I did a clean install.

Please let me know if I can provide any more information, this exists in the previous build as well. Clean flashed both the latest and the one preceding it, same issue. Is is indeed something wrong with the mediascanner. Since manual scans have also been unsuccessful.

couple questions:

I'm on VZW in the U.S., and I noticed the default mobile settings are to disallow roaming and i believe the preferred network was set to global. Should I change these settings to connect to data when roaming, and prefer LTE? Reason I ask is because this is how I have my phone set, and I've noticed that for some reason once I enter a roaming area and return to VZW coverage it does not want to default back to "4G" in the status bar. Not sure what kind've an impact this has...but it seems like data is quite a bit slower when roaming.

Updated to Stable 2.0 Build 8

Updated with some new stuff like three finger swipe gesture to take a screenshot, ability to open heads up notifications in floating mode, ability to disable lockscreen visualizer, completely redone file manager, battery bar for navigation bar, etc. Fixed bugs like the latest stagefright vulnerability, fixes to floating mode, etc. Google apps are now backed up while flashing the ROM so no more need to apply the gapps after flashing the ROM starting with this update.

M8 specific changes for speaker, etc.

Many more changes that I don't actually remember.

Please leave a feedback, press like or thanks and donate if you can.

Do not let the thread die and get buried under.

Running nicely!

I don't know who came up with the idea to show the screen fully lit as you drag the brightness slider, but that is f*****g brilliant. True genius in its simplicity. Elegance in function.

Swyped on my M8

Manual scan works for me so the media scanner issue is a minor inconvenience.
I upgraded to the latest (dirty flash) and the problem still persists.

Debug run

Hey guys.

I will completely clean install the Rom withing the next hour and will run an debug run to check the bugs reported. (Media Scanner)

Will report back during the day about what I may have faced or not!

Anyway hughe thanks to the dev!

ROM: XenonHD Build 8
GApps: arm 5.1 pico 21 August 2015 (opengapps)
Recovery: TWRP 2.8.7.0
SD: 64GB ext4 formatted
(just for comparison reasons)
Germany, LTE, 02 Provider

---------- Post added at 01:06 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:08 PM ----------

Clean flash - wiped everything (phone storage & sd card. Ext4)

Installation went flawlessly although the small gapps package needed some time to install (but without problems, just be patient.)

  1. Switching between Wifi (3.4/5GHz) and 3G/4G Network works fine. (O2, Germany)
  2. Copied 297 wallpaper to SD Card (different filetypes and sizes), took some photos with stock camera app; all initiated IMEDIATELY using stock gallery app
  3. Copied 1GB of music files to SD Card; all initiated IMEDIATELY using stock music player
  4. Strange speaker "pops" seem to be fixed
  5. If you do not see the "close all apps symbol" in recents menu, just deactivate and activate in Rom settings and it's there. Guess it's just not properly initiated but not a really bug though
I use Windows 10 on my Ultrabook for copying the files to the SD Card. No porblem at all, additionally my SD Card isn't the fastest.
If I remeber this one right, Android initiates the Media Scanner service after files are moved on or to the Storage of phone or SD Card. For me it worked pretty well.

Edit:
Figured out, that it works WAY FASTER for me, when I copy files using recovery mode.


Please let me know what else to test and I will add it to this post!

Have a nice day and flashing time with the ROM. I know it's a sh*tload of work to do a cleanflash but it's worth the work.

anyone seeing the roaming icon figured it out yet?

to explain, sometimes the signal indicator shows a R instead of 4g or 3g. when this happens I seem to still have a normal connection, so it's just a cosmetic thing.

I've tried changing APN's and editing some APN related files, but it doesn't seem to fix anything. I'm starting to wonder if it's just an issue with the framework or something down those lines, but I don't know enough about where to look to figure it out.

I've had this issue with Xenon for quite a while now. Like you said, it will sometimes toggle itself from a solid 4g to the R for no reason at all while the screen is off. Data is still solid but the indicator shows the roaming R. Never have been able to get out to go away.

Also have to say that I've tried almost every CM and AOSP based rom for the M8 and haven't had this issue. Outside of that I have zero complaints with the current build of Xenon. Solid as hell.
