    Ok so im not sure why it happened to me but im sure at least one other person must be suffering from this too:

    After jailbreaking with spirit i couldnt:

    Save images
    Take screenies
    Sync photos

    To fix this:

    First download iFile (im sorry but i did all of the permissions changing through it and dont know the whole 07** things)

    Then go to the cog at the bottom and turn "hidden files" on

    Navigate to /var/mobile/Media/ and click the arrow next to DCIM, make sure the permissions are as follows:

    Owner: mobile
    Group: mobile

    User: Read, Write, Execute
    Group: Read, Write
    World: Read, Write

    then click done and go into the DCIM folder

    there should be two folders, 100APPLE and .MISC (if .MISC isnt there you havent turned on hidden files)

    Make sure they both have:

    Owner: mobile
    Group: mobile

    User: Read, Write, Execute
    Group: Read, Write
    World: Read, Write

    Go into 100APPLE and make sure the permissions of that .MISC folder are the same as above.

    Take a screenshot and enjoy your now working Photos app

    Thanks

    I never had this problem but thanks if this ever happens I will know how to fix it also if iFile evaluation period has expired then you can do this over SSH with WinSCP
