Hi there,

somehow suddenly my android gallery access seems to be corrupted. Whatsapp and Threema always say Download failed if I try to download an image. I can choose images from the gallery, but sending them alwas fails. Even taking a picture directly fails with the error message "Camera unavailable".

Image proccessing apps like Perfectly Clear can't even access the gallery. I haven't found another native sailfish app for testing gallery access straightaway, but i can access gallery with the standard app without problems. And until yesterday everything worked fine.

I tried to use Sailfish Utilities to restore media database and also rebooted several times. Also tried to remove sd card and put it in again, but nothing succeeded.

Anyone had similar problems? Or knows what to do?

A fix was released September 2014, but if there's a new issue (you're on Sailfish OS later than that), please reopen and edit this question adding your Sailfish OS version number here (or ask someone to do it commenting, if your karma isn't high enough for editing):


As that's already a similar question, closing this as duplicate
