Stock camera app not saving pictures...

    So I just got my OPO yesterday and today I'm having an easily reproducible bug in the stock camera app.

    Basically when I take a photo in any other mode then HDR the photo just doesn't save even though it does play the photo taking animation, but the shortcut to view the photo doesn't appear and it doesn't show up in any gallery.

    This doesn't happen in one of two ways:

    If I take the photo with RAW image format turned on, then it works normally.

    Or if I turn on HDR and take a picture then all the other modes work after the HDR photo is taken, but here's where it gets interesting, if I take an HDR photo AFTER I took some auto photos that didn't save, after I take the HDR photo all the auto photos that didn't save pile up really fast in the shortcut button to the gallery. But I have to take an HDR photo every time I open the camera app.

    NOTE: this only happens in the stock camera app, all the other's like Google Camera work just fine.

    I cleared the gallery app and camera caches and restarted the phone multiple times.

    Any fixes?

    fix is to reinstall cyanogen's buggy software, it's a good thing you only got it yesterday because this procedure will delete your data :p

    Want me to help you do it with teamviewer?

    I've already installed a ton of stuff... I'd really like to find a fix without deleted my data, or just use another camera app...

    well sooner or later you're gonna have to have your bootloader unlocked (unlocking it is the part that wipes your data) so I think it's best if you bite the bullet now and get it over with on your second day rather than your second month when you have a ton of things installed.

    Otherwise I recommend the ColorOS Camera port and the CameraNext mod.

    ColorOS camera app is working fine for me. However, I don't have the issues you are experiencing with stock CM11S ROM? If might be because some privacy guard permissions preventing camera to store files?

    Why will I have to unlock my bootloader? If i don't want to... I won't

    Could you suggest some? I'd like 4K video as an option.

    It's not gonna be a choice when you run into problems later down the road.

    Not saying you will 100% sure but it's a high chance, better to get it over with. I'm gonna laugh at you if you come here in 2 months with so many problems that you have to do it.

    Haha this is not a right place to tell you but I was literally searching you since 10 mins because I wanted the version 1.7 gdrive link. I always download color OS new versions from your links in signature.

    Now I'll remember your name

    Very good question, I forgot to check that, no, that doesn't work earlier, but I know for a fact that in snapchat it works just fine...

    Use the CameraNext mod it's much better than the stock app.
