So, my Nexus 4 got Lollipop, nullifying the old/default Gallery app. I hate the Google+ app, a lot, especially it's gallery "replacement". Other gallery apps from the market. None of them are what I want.

All I want is the old Gallery app back.

What I've tried:

  • Copying old app and installing it with the UI. App not installed.
  • adb -r -d fails with Failure [INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_NO_CERTIFICATES]
  • adb uninstall com.google.gallery fails with Failure [DELETE_FAILED_INTERNAL_ERROR]

Rooting isn't a practical option at this point.

  • I got old gallery app but editing the photo will stop the gallery app

  • @sameer Could you upload the app somewhere? My apk isn't from my Nexus. Commented Nov 18, 2014 at 8:50
  • Google nexus gallery apk
