Starting about a week ago, my phone -- rooted HTC Incredible, 2.2 -- stopped being able to upload to Flickr. I can't associate any system/device changes with the problem; I rooted a couple of months ago, and updated happily, since then.

I'm not using any special Flickr apps -- just the default "Share >> Flickr" accessed via the Gallery.

But when I do, I first get prompted to log in to Flickr, then told that I have multiple accounts (I don't) which is not supported.


android prompts to sign in to flickr

android tells me that multiple accounts are not supported

N.B.: Question may be rephrased over time....

Go to:

Settings -> Accounts and sync

Do you see a Flickr account there? If so, either make sure you are using that account with the Gallery or try deleting that account and trying the Gallery again.

Only one account was listed. I don't know what was wrong, but I deleted the account, re-created it, and gallery was then happy. Bizarre – Michael Paulukonis Dec 22 '10 at 16:07
Good to hear :) – Matthew Read Dec 22 '10 at 22:59
Found this by Googling. I had the exact same problem on an unrooted phone. Strange! Thanks for the solution. I spotted that account and should have tried this first as well. Guess something updates and broke a link somewhere. – user2494 Jan 27 '11 at 17:01
