    There's a file you have to delete. Then you have to reboot and open the photo app and wait while it rebuilds the photo database.

    Take a look here…

    The application being used was PhoneView for PowerPC Macs, but any app that will let you browse and alter the file system should do it.

    The file you need to find is mentioned in the second paragraph of my response.

    Please note, this is what worked for me. Proceed as your own risk. I am not responsible if you lose any data (photos) or mess up your phone. Just saying. :)

    Ok, so somehow I lost my camera roll after using instagram or something. anyway, i have a back up of my CR but I've also taken pics since I was on vacation. Is there any way to merge the backed up CR with the current one to import?

    I hate losing all those pics and having to back up and then restore and then import a folder from iPhoto.

    I saw the photos.sqlite file but i want to make sure this is the right one.

    /private/var/Photo Data/Photos.sqlite?

    Well, if your photos are set to backup to iCloud, then when the next backup occurs the new photos will be backed up because they are now in the Camera Roll.

    ----------

    I would just merge all your images into one folder on your computer then copy them back over to the DCIM folder (overwriting the duplicates).

    I believe too, what you want is this:
    /var/mobile/Media/PhotoData

    The path you mention I don't have. iOS 7.1.2.

    You could try a manual backup.

    Not sure how it all works now though with iOS 8 and the iCloud service thing.
