Ensure you have / create a directory called AppInventorBinaries in your filescope App path


That should be described in the MIT Guide.

How can I do it ? I tried with Alireza_Sharifi aia (changing account) without success. (android 11)

Are you using a full path to the image (file:///.....) ?

There also needs to be a test for the Android version, because AppInventorBinaries may go to a different place ( I haven't tested this yet on less than Android 10)

Yes, see blocks in post 1

What is your Android version ?

version 11

Then AppInventorBinaries needs to exist / be created in your ASD:


and filescope should be App not Legacy

AndroidBinaries or AppInventorBinaries ?
I can not create any dir in asd

Sorry AppInventorBinaries

(I will edit above)

Your path when using filescope App is incorrect....

Is it correct ?

i tested this project in android 11 and works: (companion and apk)

Your aia runs well for me, but only with apk, not companion.

Hi Alireza

You should not need a Read External Storage permission for Android 11+, the ASD (App Specific Directory) is internal storage.

What happens when using companion?

In the Procedure App Inventor Binaries, if the path does not exist and is therefore created, where is the image?

With companion

  1. I can not create the folder AppInventorBinaries
  2. when get error no such file or directory
