android 11 storage issue

Post by crowpatch » Fri Nov 13, 2020 12:01 pm

It seems drastic doesnt read properly files when installed on android r, it only shows me "/storage" path without any files listed. Yup, I paid for the app for such a long time so this isnt some form of piracy protection kicking in. Hope to resolve soon!

found a solution, if youre rooted, edit shared prefs on com.dsemu.drastic folder on /data/data , locate BasePath and change it from

Code: Select all

/
to

Code: Select all

/sdcard
for sure they can fix it on their next update :)

You could blame it on Google insisting on "scoped storage" in the name of security. :P

If you uninstall/reinstall the app (and let it search for your ROMs), it should drop you in /storage/emulated/0 by default. This isn't an Android 11 specific issue, it's been like this for at least a few versions now (7 or 8 maybe?).

I'm having this same problem with a new Pixel 4a. Uninstalling and reinstalling didn't work. Anyone else have suggestions?

I have the same issue that only "/storage" is shown. I have a Samsung S21 ultra, newest software (smartphone and DraStic app). DraStic has all permission wich are required (files and mic).
Has someone a solution for that? I mean it can't be such a big thing to tell the app were the apk's are or am I wrong?
I already tried to open the apk with the DraStic app but the DraStic app is not shown as an program to open the apk.

Yeah, I don't see this being fixed anytime soon. This thread started last November or so, and it's been six months roughly speaking, I'm pretty sure the devs of Drastic don't have enough Android 11 users to care or justify fixing it.
