Storage Changes - Android SDK 30 (Android 11)

This article applies to Kiosk Browser 2.8.2 or higher, running Android 10 or higher.

Due to changes in the Android SDK (API level 30), it is no longer possible for Kiosk Browser to read and write from/to the default storage area, for example: /emulated/0/kioskbrowser/. This means all files are now stored under an app specific directory such as /emulated/0/Android/data/com.procoit.kioskbrowser/kioskbrowser/.

In rare circumstances it is possible to copy files to /emulated/0/Android/data/com.procoit.kioskbrowser/kioskbrowser/ using ADB which is a command line tool use by developers.

The following features will no longer work using the directory /emulated/0/kioskbrowser/:

Custom Error Pages
Access Denied Pages
Custom Icon
Loading pages from localcontent
XML Import/Export
XML Remote Management Registration

Currently the best solution is to use our Remote Management along solution with file groups/file sets which can automatically deploy content to /emulated/0/Android/data/com.procoit.kioskbrowser/kioskbrowser/.
