/var/root/Library/Preferences/com.apple.mobileslideshow.plist does exist. Backed up com.apple.mobileslideshow.plist and deleted same, but still no joy. Pics still not saved. I noticed com.apple.mobileslideshow.plist gets re-created, but with a smaller file size than before.
Thinking maybe com.apple.mobileslideshow.plist should be present in /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/ I copied the file to that location but still no joy.

why not just install boss prefs and fix all permissions?

I had a similar problem to whats been described when using my burst mode. From what ive experienced that it takes sometime to save and there also seems to be a problem when you take a large amount of pictures in a row without the spinning circle stopping. Ive gotten it to crash and not move pictures, however, when i take one picture at a time and wait for the circle to come to a complete stop it seems to work. It could be a 1.1.2 or older problem... if so... upgrade! what are you waiting for?

is it possible to recover the pictures i took?

Ok, i just installed this super cool app an hour ago, and pics were not saving.
im running 1.1.1 and as you may know, when you upgrade to 1.1.3 up the folder are changed from Root to mobile, so, for us 1.1.2 down, CREATE this Folders
Just like that, take a picture and it will be saved there, only thing is that you wont be able to see it on the iphone pics but if you use the FINDER or such youll see them
ALSO Folders DCIM and 100APPLE must be on 700 for permissions, now i just have to figure out how to make them apear on the photos :P

Snapture 1.1 works really good on the 1.1.4. Best of all it is free. Great app.

Ok i just emailed them a suggestion and i hope we soon see a new snaptune exclusively for 1.1.2 down, hopefully :P
might take a day or 2 for them to make it tho =/

The first bit would be to make sure your DCIM folder inside of the root/Media folder is writable by the mobile user, nothing a 777 can't fix.
chmod -R 777 /var/root/Media/DCIM
The next bit is to create the symlink thats just like a place holder in the mobile/Media folder that really just redirects you to /var/root/Media/DCIM.
ln -s /var/root/Media/DCIM /var/mobile/Media/DCIM
(Please note, if you have created the folder above, you'll have to delete it, or else the Symlink will go inside of that and not work correctly. The Symlinked folder must be in /var/mobile/Media, not /var/mobile/Media/DCIM/DCIM)
Launch Snapture and give it a go, take some pics, exit out and hop into Photos. If all goes well you should see your folders.
If it doesn't work, you may have to also change the folder permissions on the folders that lead to the DCIM directory. I would do this last if you don't have success with the steps above.
chmod 777 /var/root
chmod 777 /var/root/Media

Just wanted to give an update to everyone. We've been working hard to figure out what the bug was. We're pretty sure we've got it figured out. It was difficult because we couldn't reproduce the bug, so we're debugging purely based on speculation, and from what others are saying.
In any case, a few people emailed us and were kind enough to help us flush it out. Should be getting released tommorw.
We're also going to put in the preferences saving in the next release.
Thanks for all the feedback, you guys are awesome!
04-07-2008, 08:40 AM #78LOL, Well, until now I couldn't see any real benefit in upgrading. I guess this app has given me the incentive to do so!
04-07-2008, 12:26 PM #79
great app, but taking pictures with the volume buttons foesnt work here.
well, they dont show up on the camera roll.
however, pictures taken with screen touching/tapping does work, these pics do show up...
