    Hi all,
    Until a couple of hours ago my gallery used to work fine. After no apps installed or anything of this kind all it does now is start, without showing anything (no folders, no thumbs, nothing). According to ThinkFree Office (the built in file explorer) all my pictures and album art are still there.
    Any solutions guys?
    Thank you in advance.

    P.S. The phone is almost like new, only a couple of applications installed. Also, my background picture (one of my gallery photos) can still be seen and when connected to my pc i can see all the photos, so they surely are there.

    You've tried to reboot the phone?

    Yes, rebooting did not help. Maybe it's of some use, but i've discovered it is impossible to open any kind of image file using the cell phone. Other things tried: using a slideshow or image frame widget - both failed as i could not load any images.
    Any ideas? If not, could you give me a hint then as to how to reinstall android froyo on the thing? (This is a desperate measure which i will prefer to keep as a least resource).

    I am not sure as to how legal this is, but could any of you guys upload the .apk file here? I don't currently have internet access on my phone now and that's why i'm asking for this.

    Ok, this is pretty much deja-vu, but I'm now having the same problem. Only one thing: SDRescan doesn't fix it; What should I do next?

    I had the same problem and it seems to be consistent. I searched and people gave me silly solutions like, go to settings;applications;manage applications and clear the cache for all applications in your phone and then turn it off and open it and wait a few days for the gallary to open. That is crap. Here is the correct fast solution that I figured out by myself.


    The gallary is managed by an app called COOLIRIS and some how this app connects to the internet to search for pics, vids, updates or whatever. This causes it to contineuosly reload or update your gallary and so it keeps loading and never opens. The only solution is to go to your home screen and open the top settings tab where you can set on or off bluetooth, wif, internet connection and so forth. Turn off the internet connection, its the second from the right. Now go to your gallary and it will open emmediately. Only problem is you wont recieve calls or messages, so do this everytime you want to view your gallary.

    Thanks for sharing this...somehow i understood the link between having an internet connection and my gallery problems, although it had never gone beyond pure supposition.
    Cheers!
