01 - Open the Settings app.
02 - Ensure that pictures are saved to the internal storage space (which is currently empty, as an example).
03 - Go to the Camera app and take a picture. Ensure that it appears in the lower left corner as a recently-taken picture.
04 - Go back to the Settings app and format the internal storage space.
05 - Navigate back to the Camera app, via long-pressing the home button.
06 - Tap on the recently-taken picture.
07 - The Camera app quits. (presumably crashes?)

The Camera app should not quit/crash. It should no longer show the recently-taken picture instead.

Video coming up.

Setting needinfo? from Mike and David, our Camera app module owners on how to best move this forward.

dhylands, is there an event the Camera app can/should listen for to know the memory card has been nuked?
Flags: needinfo?(mhabicher) → needinfo?(dhylands)
formatting the sdcard will essentially do an unmount/format/re-mount

Which is more or less the same thing as "sharing with the PC", have the PC remove all of the files, and remount.

Formatting is just one way of removing all of the files.

My understanding was that the media db would do an incremental scan if the media goes an available->sharing->available cycle, and only does a full scan if the media goes tthrough a available->unavailable->available cycle.

Removing an sdcard and formatting an sdcard should both go through the available->unavailable->available cycle.

Wilson, based on comment 2, I think this is something the app can manage.

dhylands: Where should I be listening for these events?

(In reply to Wilson Page [:wilsonpage] from comment #4)
> dhylands: Where should I be listening for these events?

Basically, you register with device storage using addEventListener like this:

Whether it makes sense to register directly with device storage or add something to the mediadb code may depend on the app in question.

Setting needinfo? in case this fell off the radar, thanks.

I don't have time this week to look into this I'm afraid. Flagging dmarcos and justindarc to see if they have free cycles.

It looks good. We need a unit test for that new method.

This issue has been verified fixed on Flame 3.0. Following STR, at step 6 the preview picture is no longer present that could result to this crash. If I was already viewing the picture in Preview, it would take me back to Camera viewfinder without issue.
