So when I updated my Android to 4.4.2, the default Samsung Gallery app disappeared. Now, I decided to dig into the files of the Android 4.4.2 update and extracted the system.img and found the application, named SecGallery2013.apk I copied it to my SD Card and tried to install it normally, it gave the error "Application not installed" So I tried to install it via ADB, but it gave an error "INSTALL_FAILED_UID_CHANGED" so I digged into my phone and found the same APK in system/priv-app and I deleted it and after that, I tried again but this time it gave the error: "INSTALL_FAILED_DEXOPT" Things I've tried:

  • I got a logcat and this was the result, hope someone can understand:

  • I checked another place and it said error code -24, I've did every suggestion on this site and none of them worked (except for factory resetting)
  • Deleted all remaining files from gallery data, didn't work

Samsung Galaxy Note II, running rooted stock android 4.4.2.

Thanks!

  • In an active su shell (assuming the device is rooted) try the following command: find / -name *com.sec.android.gallery3d* Ignoring any "not found" errors, does it find any other files or directories? If so, remove them and try side-loading the app again. – Chahk May 19 '14 at 16:42
  • @Chahk What do you by 'active su shell' I've tried writing this to both Terminal and ADB using ADB shell but they say find not found. – Sadra May 19 '14 at 16:50
  • In adb shell first become root by issuing su command, and then try the find command again. It's probably some left overs from the app you uninstalled, most likely in /cache/dalvik-cache/ or /data/dalvik-cache/ – Chahk May 19 '14 at 16:51
  • @Chahk Done that, given root permissions, but then it says: tmp-mksh: Find: not found – Sadra May 19 '14 at 16:53
  • Hmm... try "busybox find" instead. Busybox can be installed from Play Store. – Chahk May 19 '14 at 16:55

I finally figured out how to fix this.

What I did

  • I did a double factory reset: Nothing happened.
  • Downgraded to Android 4.2.2: Nothing happened.
  • Downgraded to Android 4.1.2: Nothing happened.
  • Upgraded to Android 4.3: Nothing happened.
  • Factory Reset: Gallery appeared!
  • Upgraded to Android 4.4.2: Gallery didn't disappear!
