BACKENDS: Android - Cannot access S9's internal memory

Reported by: resnate Owned by: lephilousophe

Hi there, opening a ticket here per instructions from GOG forum.

I downloaded the dev build of the APK and cannot access my phone's internal memory.

  • What is the Android OS version on your S9?

It's an S9+ running Android OS 9, with Android security patch level "1 December 2019".

  • What do you see when clicking on the "Add Game..." button?

It's completely empty, and when navigating "up", it's still empty.

When first opening the app I see there's an error before I have a chance to grant access, but closing and reopening the app after granting permission still does not let me navigate to my files (see attached images).

As a workaround:
Could you try to simply type "/" and press Enter in the "Add Game..." screen, in the address text box?
Does that change anything? It does for me in an Android OS 9 device.
It should show some basic folders to navigate to like:

  • ScummVM data directory
  • sdCard

For my device, the second option "sdCard" will allow me to navigate to the internal memory.

Should be fixed in latest beta release by using SAF.
