Currently building a web app. I'm at SO/SE sites with the goal of learning something new every day.

Things I like/use include: camelCase, OOP, HTML(5), CSS(3), PHP(5), (My)SQL, PDO, xdebug, APC, XHPRof, Javascript, jQuery + jQuery UI, JSON, redis, Git, PHPUnit, node.js, Twitter Boostrap, Modernizr, Common sense

Things I dislike/don't use include: under_scores, XML, spaghetti code, gotos, architecture astronauts, etc

I also used to do: VB6, VB.NET, C/C++, x86 Assembly, Motorola 68K Assembly; but I forgot most of it since I haven't touched them in years.

Like my stuff? A couple of mBTCs are always welcome: 19xQFJabE9ga4kjnKTV94JTirnjy9TKNN9

Update for future readers: this remains unfixed in 4.2.2.

comment How can I get Facebook and Google contacts to sync in 4.2?
I don't think this is possible without a third party app or a custom rom. You aren't doing anything wrong, it is just Google and Facebook not playing nice together anymore, apparently. (Most people recommend the app HaxSync as a workaround by the way, I haven't tried it yet though)

Also, to everyone who chimed in in this question: Thanks. The way SE sites work I can only accept one answer, but every answer here helped in some or other way.

@Chance tried that before but didn't help either; the issue is nothing has privileges to write the timestamp by default, so there's nothing one can do but rooting right now.

Thanks for the info, let's hope this is something google can and would be willing to address, because as far as I can tell the problem is not the fuse layer or the mtp protocol, but the strict privileges that were set there, which by the way appear to be pretty recent (4.2.1?) since the Photo Date Correction app posted below did seem to work with older, 4.0 fuse/mtp based devices such as the galaxy nexus.

Thanks, that helps; as your for script: both mtp via windows and adb push drop the connection for me after the first thousand files or so in my case, plus some files randomly end up corrupted, are you seeing the same? basically as this issue describes here: code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=35185 (perhaps I should make a separate question, since this is not directly related with the timestamps themselves. Gotta love mtp though)

Np, I appreciate the help. I guess I'll have to give up for now, already wasted too much time on this.

Nothing. FTPSyncX Trial as a client on the phone, freeSSHd as a server on my laptop, I'm able to connect and sync files via STP/SSH, but the timestamp of pictures transferred to the phone is still getting overwritten to the current date.

I'll check it, but considering SSHDroid didn't work for me I guess I won't get the timestamps with it either.

I tried a couple of sync tools, but none synced the timestamp, because I guess there is some sort of protection. Thanks for the answer though.
