    Having issues getting pictures and icons to show up in the gallery. I had everything backed up so used astronomical and removed all of my pictures and icons, then put the icons back in, however the pictures (thumbnails at least) still show. When I go to a picture it wont load though, so not sure what's going on. Seems to not be updating. I've tried running a program called sdrefresh, but still not refreshed. Any help please?

    I don't really understand what all this means: "removed all of my pictures and icons, then put the icons back in". Why did you remove all your pictures? And what does "then put the icons back in" mean?

    Anyway, you may want to try the following: Settings/Applications/Manage Applications/All/Gallery/Clear defaults/Clear Data.

    Ok apologies for confusion.
    I removed all the pictures and icons I had within scum folder, had a ton in there, so I removed them all. Then I put an icon pack back in, however gallery wont recognize any of them. I removed the thumbnail files too, thinking that may help, but now gallery just shows a ton of broken images
    I tried going to manage the gallery application from all listing, and weird... but gallery isn't listed, even though I can run the viewer.

    Well the Gallery not showing is really odd. I better leave this one to someone that is knowledgeable in your rom. If this was a Droid 1, I would recommend reinstalling the rom. But with your phone and that rom, I'm not sure that's good advice.

    Good luck.

    What is the folder named and where is it on the sdcard? Make sure it isn't nested in a folder in a folder in a folder, etc. You may want to create a folder named Pictures on the root of the sdcard and then put the icons in it.
