Hi Team

I am using Download Component to download a image from my hosting. But even after accepting permissions it shows Error 908. Please check the blocks and video attached

There are several bugs with the Download component:

  1. It doesn’t work on Android 11+
  2. You cannot specify the Download folder
  3. You cannot download to an arbitrary folder (like /FileDownloader) on Android 11+.
    It should be /Download or a subfolder of it or the ASD

Thanks for the reports! I will put a fix for this bug in the next update :+1:

These bugs. :wink:
And there is probably also a permission bug with WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE (at least on Android 11+). So as I said earier, do not request storage permissions (automatically).
Let the app developer do it if needed.

So, if you want to download to the ASD, no storage permissions are required from Android 4.4 (KitKat, API 19 and higher). If you want to download to the Shared folder /Download, WRITE permission must ONLY be requested on Android < 11.
