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 Dec 22 '10 at 16:07

  • 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.
