long time no talk @ChrisWard , you've always been exceptionally helpful in the past and I very much appreciate all the time you spend here helping folks.
This is an app I made and used for a long time where either an app inventor update or a phone update is pushing this new scenario asking for "permission".
here is my old/current setup where i've never seen this permission deal till now.
the activity starter action reads "android.bluetooth.adapter.action.REQUEST_ENABLE"
(never had this error before)
I figured this error message being permission related that its different than an enable deal - I could be entirely wrong.
also, this is on classic BT - which I might move away from given the unfortunate HC-06/HC-05 issues I've seen lately. thats a me rant for a different post though lol
