    I was taking pictures using my DX, when I went to click on the "Gallery" application on phone, it opens that quickly shuts down. I have no clue what is going on, soon a I click on the Gallery app, it'll open the close. I haven't removed any APK/APP associated with the gallery, I have froze some apps with TB, that's it. I almost forgot. I can open the Gallery app though by opening the Camera app and clicking the photo boxes at the bottom and it will take me to the slide show but that's it.

    Does anyone have any idea what is going on and how to fix it.

    EDIT: If someone needs to know I only have a couple frozen and I don't see how any of these could effect my Gallery from opening properly.

    For the gallery issue, have you tried clearing data/cache for gallery?
    Menu> Settings> Applications> Manage Applications> all tab> Gallery,
    Force stop, clear cache, clear data, try again.

    On 2.3.15, there was a known issue where if you took a pic, and deleted the picture from the preview, it would sometimes corrupt the index... caused all kinds of issues. It's possible it's not solved in the newer update either.. (??).
    So, for the Blur camera, I highly recommend you wait to delete a pic from the gallery, rather than the camera preview window.

    HTH!

    EDIT: I followed the above directions. I did this twice and it finally worked. Is the Gallery bug a known problem in OS 2.2.1?
