    Hello All Devs!

    I just rooted my LG Optimus F3 phone. I moved the Facebook app to my External Card. Now the gallery doesn't show any facebook photos. What do I do? How to get those photos back?

    I tried moving it back to the Internal memory and still does the same thing. No photos!

    I haven't cleared the Facebook app cache yet as I know I will lose them permanently if I do that. It still says like 17.43MB Data.

    What do I do? Please help!!:mad::mad:

    "Gallery" just does a media scan of the phone and picks up all photo files. Install a rescan app and rescan the phone.

    Hmmm that didn't solve the problem. I still do not have my media back. Any other ideas?

    I installed root explorer, tried a rescan, nothing. I cleared gallery cache to reset the thumbnails, still nothing.

    I have now started the Facebook Photo sync but the old photos are still lost. Any idea how to get them back? They were in the folder Facebook on my external Micro SD card.

    Thanks!
