No Pictures from Snapture!
I recently restored my phone to upgrade to 2.2 firmware. I reinstalled everything from scratch. However, Snapture is not working. I take a picture but it does not show up in the Camera Roll, nor in the iPhone when I plug it into the PC. It is the latest version (2.2.3).
Update: It appears no photos I take will show up. This includes the ones taken by the camera app.
Update #2: Aw, damn-I found a few people that had this same problem plus their Notes wouldn't save. I tried saving a note, and guess what? Mine won't save, either. This guy had the same problem. Restoring is out of the question because I've spent hours working on getting my like 50 apps reinstalled and categorized! Can you please help me get this up and running?!
Alright!!! I love technology I fixed it relatively easily-I had manually backed up my contacts, Notes, and photos. I was able to fix it simply by using an SSH program (in my case, iPhone PC Suite) and changing the folders' permissions (plus subfolders and files) to 777 (read/write/execute for anyone). If anyone else is having this problem, this is the fix without restoration! For the location of the files you need to change, look here.

Anytime you have these issues of not saving it is simple and clearly you not having permission to write to that folder. As you have discovered a simple permissions change to allow you to write to the folder fixes the issue. Saving issues are different from something like an application not opening (which can also be a permissions issue, but not most likely the cause). Saving issues directly point to not being able to write to the folder. It's a no brainer.
