Android Media Process (high CPU)

RE: Android Media Process

  • Settings -> Apps -> ALL -> Media Storage -> “Force stop” & “Clear data”.
  • Gallery (deleting broken images (black/grey image place holder/square)).

~ # touch /sdcard/clockworkmod/blobs/.nomedia
~ # 

~ # rm -r /sdcard/DCIM/.thumbnails
~ #

~ # e2fsck -n /dev/block/platform/omap/omap_hsmmc.0/by-name/userdata

    thank you! the problem was: while microsd card is not inserted cpu_usage->50%.
    Media Storage -> “Force stop” & “Clear data” solved problem)

    If you “Force Stop” Zygote will restart it later. Just “Clear Data” this causes the process to “hang” – less than ideal but it has the desired effect.

    tried the first part; Settings -> Apps -> ALL -> Media Storage -> “Force stop” & “Clear data”. Then cleared in Gallery i cleared the cache and data. It’s been a couple minutes since my last high CPU usage warning . . .maybe this worked.
