Hyperspace delivery boy PPC version stopped being recognised by Scummvm Android

Dear Team,
I have a PPC version of HDB (bought about 2003). This worked on previous versions of Scummvm Android (not sure of version number, but straight after the hdb engine was added).
Now I cannot add the game, as Scummvm android gives the error message "Scummvm could not find any game in the specified directory".
Let me know if you need the hdb_arm.exe for testing.
Huge thanks for adding the engine for this little gem of a game! Luckily the Linux and windows versions work fine.
Best wishes,

This is likely to do with the new SAF system that the android app needed to support (in order to remain on the Play Store and properly function on newer Android OS).

Did you follow the steps shown in the popup after installing or updating the app?

They are listed here as well:

Thanks for the suggestion Antoniou79! I did the steps before, but still didn't recognise the game. In the end I realised my files were incomplete. Copied all files from my old PPC again, and now it works!
I also have the windows and Linux version working (sadly these crash out of Scummvm mid-game, issue #14478.)
Thanks for your help!
