Ok so after updating to os6.1.3 I synced with icloud and not all photos were put back on for some reason. Also most of them are blurry now. So I read about the blurry problem and how unsyncing and resyncing should fix it. But how does one do that with icloud??


Anyway so I also tried deleting them via windows explorer but noticed that half of them show as 0kb. So I am guessing the icloud sync didn't complete properly. But its now been days and if it hasn't corrected itself by now, I don't expect it ever will.


When I selected all and hit delete, explorer just froze indefinitely.So I had to kill explorer.exe and restart it.. tried again just with one photo and it did the same thing. I have since tried it about a dozen times and it just keeps freezing.


I went to Settings>General>Usage to see if I could wipe the photo library that way but the Photo app isn't showing under there.


Apart from a full restore,I am totally out of ideas now.. its quite ridiculous.


Help appreciated...



iPhone 3GS, iOS 6.1.3
