    I installed Gallery 3D by Rayman50 by mistake. It turned my localized Gallery app into the English one. I uninstalled it, but now the Gallery icon is missing (showing now only a little white camera icon) and the app is now called "false".:mad: Any ideas how to fix this? (Using Huawei U8800, Android 2.2.1) There is no option to uninstall the stock Gallery app, and no way to reinstall it. I wouldn't want to reset the phone as I just had to do that and set everything up from zero.

    Without rooting the phone, a factory reset is probably the only way to fix that.

    Have you thought about using a gallery replacement app like Quickpic? Don't know if you can get the stock gallery back but if you can replace it with something else, that may work.

    I made the same mistake. I was able to fix it like this:

    • Made a backup of Gallery3D's apk with File Expert. It was listed as com.cooliris.media
    • Re-installed that .apk
    • After that I was able to remove the updates to Gallery3D in Market.
    • Rebooted the phone and then everything was back to normal. You may have to re-add the shortcut if you had one.
    I hope this was useful to someone.

    Can you give a bit more info for a newbie?

    • Made a backup of Gallery3D's apk with File Expert. It was listed as com.cooliris.media
      If I start at Home in FE, where is this file?
    • Re-installed that .apk
      You mean you installed the backup made in #1? How, just click on it?
