    Some guy over at XDA ported the froyo gallery app to 2.1 eclair, here is the thread
    froyo 3d gallary portd for android 2.1 - xda-developers

    and the file can be downloaded here (copy and paste in browser window)
    ***IF YOU HAVE 3D GALLERY FROM MARKET ALREADY INSTALLED, UNINSTALL FIRST***

    10x9.com/xh

    Installed straight from sdcard and it runs perfectly, and boy is that pinch preview feature fun. I believe since it runs off the sdcard it loads gallery pictures faster, or at least appears to do so on my end. Runs perfect on my Droid X so I thought i'd post it here.

    Worked easily for me. Not rooted. Connected my phone via USB, dragged over the file then unmounted. Opened up my Files app and clicked on the Gallery3DFroyo.apk and it installed.

    Hope this helps.

    What folder did you put this file in? Straight on the SD card? When I try to launch and install I get a not installed.

    Cannot put in system app folder.

    Thanks much!

    1) Download the app
    2) Click on Install
    3) Have a coke n a smile ;)


    No, but make sure under Settings -> Applications that "Unknown Sources" is checked.

    Also, make sure you download the app on your phone and not on your computer, then execute from the '/sdcard/downloads' folder.

    Allow Unknown Sources is the trick, sorry should have mentioned that (thankfully ericnail did). This gallery is so much better than the stock moto one, and that pinch to preview is actually decently handy.

    I just wish the HDMI out would work so I could hide/remove the stock gallery :/

    Even with unknown sources checked it still won't install for me.

    Edit: I had to delete the other 3d Gallery that I had installed and it worked fine.

    Do you have the 3d gallery form the market installed? If so that should be un-installed prior.

    CRAZY I cannot get this installed. Deleted the 3d App, rebooted, battery pulled and I keep getting the same error. I'm also guessing that stock gallery is not unistalled either (as it would require root).

    Will hopefully get when Froyo is released, but for some reason I am stupified as I have never had issues installing anything on Droid, Incredible so there is got to be something wrong with my setup somewhere. CRAZY.

    Does the launch camera icon in the top right corner work? I downloaded a version of the 3D gallery from this article, and it doesn't work. It just blanks the screen for a second then returns to the gallery. other than that, it works.


    Update: Never mind, it works. Had to delete the old app, and install the new. A little sluggish (about 3 seconds to launch), but it's better than no launch at all. Got my Picasa folders in the Gallery too!
