Gallery and camera cannot access storage after re-install of /e/ Q

Hi there,

I think I messed up with my system… I had to reinstall /e/ Q after a bad move.

Now everything seems to work fine (for now…), but the gallery app and camera app won’t access the files system neither in read nor in write mode…

I’ve already try to change the permissions in the settings to allow storage access with no luck :frowning:

Is there any way to fix this?

Is there an SD card in your FP3?

If yes, have you set it up to be part of the shared phone storage (a.k.a. “Internal storage”)? Or did you set it up as “portable storage” (“external storage”)?

If you have an SD card in it that is set up as phone storage, you better change it to portable storage.


Hi @urs_lesse,

Thanks for the idea, but I have no SD Card in my phone, it’s FP2 by the way, but I don’t think it matters here…

Well as I was unable to repair what I broke (my knowledge of android is too low), I did a clean install of /e/ Q (0.14) and everything is back to normal. Still don’t understand what I’ve done to broke my system, but it’s fine like this…

Thanks again @urs_lesse !

Have a nice day :wink:


How do you do that clean install?

Hi there,

I followed the install guide from here.
And my phone was working fine after this…

Hope this help.
