Downloading manga for later doesn't work

See original GitHub issue

Steps to reproduce

  1. Select any manga
  2. Press download button

Expected behavior

Progress bars in Recents > Download queue should move and make progress.

Actual behavior

It just sits there and does nothing. image

No response

Neko version


Android version

Android 11 - MIUI 12.6 by



Other details

By default, Neko points to some random location in the file system, so when trying to download anything the “Resume” button in Download queue doesn’t work and reverts to “Resume” again after flashing with “Pause” text. Fixed by changing path location and granting permissions to it at the same time. Maybe some toast or any other alert could be added to smoothen UX in these cases.
