Incoming SDK 30 hotfix

This is a hotfix update, meaning we’re only bumping the target SDK version in the manifest. We won’t be releasing the Android 11 changes till we have most of the bugs fixed.


Uh, in other words, everything that has to do with files, file path, etc. will be so offtrack as it can be…


after reading the message of @Vishwas and many others. i want to know one thing that after this hotfix update, we can publish our app in playstore ??? as per play store requirement??

We’ll update release notes in community as soon as it gets live


yes, … and that has to do with components, that can store something …

Here is an overview of the Android storage system - Scoped / Shared Storage:


Yes, but take a close look at my overview and be aware that the WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission is no longer available on Android 11.

Does this mean if I avoid using storage components, I will not get any bugs?

Hi @Omar,

Using the file component or not, issues will occur. @bodymindpower only says there will be issue with the file component to prevent you from using it (for whatever reason :sneezing_face:), but what about other components? Why the misinformation?


:octopus: Nathan

If you let google maps work (without having to compile all the time to know if it worked or not)
If you fix the “preview” in dark mode when it gets buggy, that’s great for me!

Wait, they’re trying to say you’ll have trouble using the WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission. What will happen if I use the Tiny DB?

Yes, this is what I was asking about. I asked if I avoid using all storage components that need WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission, the app will not have bugs?

I think there are other components need WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission. aren’t they?

I’m really surprised that no one seems to have been ready for the date (Aug 1, 2021) for targetSdkVersion = 30, which Google has announced for a long time.
(And this apparently applies to AI2 itself and all distros).


Released… 1hr before .


For very good reasons …
