iPhone Photo Library & Camera Not Working? | Fix


Your iPhone or iPod photo library and camera not working? Crashes? Stuck on Updating / Rebuilding Library? Even a restore or update can't fix this issue? Here's the solution. Unfortunately it involves deleting ALL your saved pictures/videos on your iPhone/iPod library.

Mac users: Connect iPhone to iTunes. Cancel sync. Go to mac application and open Preview. Click File > Import from (your iDevice name) > Select All Images and Delete.

Jailbroken iPhone/iPod users: Download iFile from Cydia. Browse Files > User > Library> Media > DCIM > Delete ALL Images.

Tested and proven to work %100 on SoCoMoCo's iPhone 3GS.

Gosh....... It worked. Mine is a jailbroken iphone 3gs. I transported all photos onto my Windows. Launched iFile, deleted all photos. Now it's fine again.
Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!

You don't have to delete the pictures for the jailbroken method you described. Just cut and paste them into another folder and in iFile and that works too!! Great solution otherwise!! Photo album works fine now.

You're right but it's likely to occur again with that method. There's only one picture/video that is making this problem but knowing which one is almost impossible. Import them to your computer and remove them from your iPhone to guarantee it doesn't happen again.
