    This just started happening when I went to GB 588 rooted.
    A folder that "was" hidden from Gallery with the "." trick, is no longer hidden.
    Anyone else run into this?

    Thanks,

    I think you can also just create a file called .nomedia in any folder you want the system to bypass.

    Yep, I have used that trick in the past as well. Now I just use photovault because I'm lazy.
