I read many comments about jelly bean on xperia p, mosto f comments forcing me to remain on ics. according to these comments there are many bugs on jelly bean. suggest me do i update it to jelly bean or not?
After when i am installed new version, in albums folder it showing blank even when there is some photos. Even i deleted cache in setting>apps>album.
it can be some software issue, try rebooting ( i guess you already did ) if problem still persists then do a factory reset ( wipe only settings not data ) and now check is problem still there…and report back.
how can i retrieve my photos from my sony experia LT22i that erased without knowing ?,is there a backup system that backup these photos automatically in the phone album

that’s the bug from Sony…Factory reset may solve your issue try it but backup first.

Good day, I updated my Xperia P in May and it was working well till my Album went blank. I had to repair the OS using my system Sony Companion. It reinstalled and worked well. Two days ago it started again. How can this problem be fixed permanently? Pls respond. Thanks
usually if you try to clear your phone cache memory using some software you might notice that your album goes blank. In this case go to apps>all>album.. in the options select clear data.. and the problem will be solved. I had this problem and got the answer in google.. Dont worry clear data does not remove photos, it removes some temporary files or something.. dont know what exactly but problem gets resolved by doing clear data from apps
