Filesystem variable changes in runtime 4.4.9 on Android


I noticed the system variables for filesystem in runtime 4.4.9 for android appears to have been changed, take for instance “”:

Runtime 4.3.6: points to “/storage/emulated/0/Download”

Runtime 4.4.9: points to “/storage/emulated/0/Android/data/ files/Download/”

I am not sure if this is related to the first bullet in the changelog for 4.4.9:

Can you please help share the reason for the change? Or perhaps we just hit a bug?

Also, how do we get back to the old file paths?



This was the issue solved: Download files not working for Android | Voters | AppGyver

I was not the one fixing this but from what you said I assume this had to do with permissions on Android and accessing and writing to certain subfolders.
