Yes, the same message:
Error 201: The camera did not return an image.

I tried most of the changes/settings and nothing worked. Still have the same issue.

This is a major problem for me. I’ll have to tell my users not to update to Android 10 until this is resolved.

I could convert back to Android 9, but that would be a pain. Plus the phone would keep requesting to update to 10.

Not sure where the issue is but I hope this gets resolved soon!

I have already reported this error also to the MIT team (App Inventor).


The MIT team just has identified the problem and provided a solution on a test server.
So there will soon be a solution for Kodular too!

Hi I’m new!!
I was looking for help in google on this subject and I saw this thread…
The same thing happens to me with appinventor and my android 10. How should I proceed? I don’t have much knowledge of programming…

Thank you,

Since the problem seems to be solved in AI2 (I checked it on the AI2 test server), there will soon be a solution for AI2 and also for Kodular. So just wait and see …


Any update on this issue yet? Will the upcoming upgrade (Jan 3) resolve this?



Can you keep us updated on this issue, please ?

Any approximate date for when it will be solved ?

Thank you very much,
