DocumentsProvider (com.android.documentsui) is missing!

Since about the firmware version 1.2.x the DocumentsProvider (com.android.documentsui) is missing!

It is therefore no longer possible to give an app write access to external storage. The change and write permissions are missing. Only reading is allowed. That is a massive limitation and does not allow for more freedom.

Is there a solution for this?

Quick reply from Zidoo. Try installing this apk: https://www.mediafire.com/file/ii3o8bdgb6u938s/DocumentsUI.apk/file

I've done a bit of testing and it seems to fix the problem. Please post your findings and if it works then it will be included in next firmware.

Hello!
That's exactly what was missing - thank you very much for your support!
Again an example of the original problem:
When I'm using an app - in my case a photo editor, I've edited a photo
and then wanted to save, came a dialogue that invited me
the location (destination) to determine or grant access. After clicking on "ok", the dialogue disappeared and you could not do anything else. Now comes the appropriate file manager and I can determine the destination (my HDD). With many other apps, it now works properly!
Thank you!
