So I never had any issues with the Musicbee Wifi Sync app from the Play Store, even on Android 12. Reverse sync worked great with Poweramp, including play counts and ratings. I updated to Android 13 several days ago did several syncs with no issues -- until today.
Did a sync this morning and everything was fine. Tried another sync this afternoon and it was broken. I get the "Folder 'Music" is not valid" and "You must select the SD card root folder and not one of it's sub-folder" error (I'm using a Pixel 5, so it's internal storage, not SD). I can't select any folder on my phone that doesn't give that error now in the app. A wired sync still works fine from Musicbee on my desktop.
So, I go back and follow BoringName's steps and create the new apk that will hopefully give the app the right permissions. I created the apk and installed it just fine, including changing the settings in app permissions to allow all files, but when I try to sync in the wifi app, I still get the same error message about the folder not being valid and am still unable to select a folder on my phone.
Anybody have any suggestions on what I try to fix this? Or is this something Android 13 broke and I'm powerless to fix? It's just so weird to me that I was still using the app just fine even after installing Android 13, and then for some reason, it just stopped working today.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
