    My sd card got corrupted and I had to reformat it. No biggie except there was one picture I wanted that I didn't have backed up. That pic is still being used by a photo frame widget and comes up on the phone yet. Is there a way to get that picture off the phone? It's rooted and running Fresh1.1 w/Gumbo.

    Will a hard press on the widget bring up options? If so you could email the pic to yourself

    Thanks, but that doesn't do it. It just says "picture is missing", yet it keeps showing up in the widget.

    well I've searched and for the life of me can't find where the photoframe widget stores its cache. Checked in /data/data/ and /data/dalvik-cache and found nothing. sorry

    Well thanks for looking. I've been digging around too and just can't seem to find it anywhere.

    have you rebooted your phone? I have a feeling the picture won't even show up in the widget after a reboot

    No, I haven't rebooted, I figured it would be gone if I did. My hopes were that it might be in a temp file somewhere on the phone. I've looked through a bunch of files using es file explorer but came up with nothing.

    Hmmm... rebooted and the picture stayed in the widget. This is really bugging me now, its gotta be stored somewhere.
