@rcketscientist the crash was not due to Uripermission and all, it was due to animatable and I fixed it here . I tested it in genymotion and all works fine now. What I could not test was setting path from external sdcard. Can you give it a try using the new 1.0.32 release ?

I’m not experiencing a crash. I was simply curious if you somehow found a non-root way around SAF. There’s currently a bug in LineageOS when writing to external SD, so I can’t test for a few days, but it won’t work. 4.2 was the last OS that could write to external via File.
