I have an HTC One X with stock Android 4.1.1. As you know, Android 4.1 introduced a "nice" feature to the gallery which allows grouping images by events. Unfortunately, after this update I started to notice a very annoying and intermittent bug: sometimes, if I have a group with hundreds of images, some of them appear in jumbled up order. I use Dropbox to sync them to my PC, so I don't usually connect my phone via USB to the PC. After seeing this issue, I browsed via USB to some of the images that appear in the wrong position and it looks like the EXIF date is correct, but, for some reason, the phone shows a different hour for this images in the "Details" section. It appears as if it misreads the hour when indexing them, showing them as having been taken one hour before the date in the EXIF data.
I have tried to clear the cache of the
Media Storage application and restart the phone, but, unfortunately, this did not do the trick and I think that a few more images got mixed up after it finished rescanning.
Does anybody have any idea what might cause this bug and how can it be fixed?
PS: I installed Total Commander on the phone and it displays the proper date for the images and it also picks them up in the expected order, so this is clearly a bug in the
Media Storage app.
