Android 12 Serial connection stopped working

Hello everyone,

I am at a loss for what to do next so here I am.

I reduced my setup to the following:
Tablet < PL2303TA TTL USB Serial Port Adapter > ESP32 DevKit V1

I also reduced my code and MIT AI to the smallest possible
blocks (1)


I tested other apps to see if it works and the "Serial USB Terminal" from the play store does recognize the connection and sends data without a hitch. I must mention that this has worked pre android 12 update. I have reinstalled MIT AI twice with no luck either.

If anyone has any ideas as to what the problem might be I would be more than grateful.
