FilePicker not showing up in BB 9520 device with OS 5.0

Hello everyone,


I am using FilePicker to select images from the device memory (i.e. Phone gallery) and I am testing the same on BB 9520 device, with OS 5.0. But the FilePicker popup is not showing up where as it is working fine on BB 9800 device with OS 6.0. Can anyone share if you have similar experience and suggest me to resolve the problem.


I checked for any exceptions occuring including the ControlledAccessException, going through some of the posts on the forum, which told few of the devices get the error. But no fruits from that and while I was debugging, the flow was not shifting to next statement and was struck at filePicker.show().

iirc there was a bug in earlier 5.0 versions, check if you can update the OS to a more recent build.
