I recently upgraded my sony xperia to Android 4.4.2.
Now I have a problem with an application reading files on the external sd card.
The code below works on previous versions of Android.
B4X:
Sub Activity_Create(FirstTime As Boolean)
    lblFiles.Initialize("")
    Activity.AddView(lblFiles, 10%x, 10%y, 80%x, 80%y)
    Dim lst0 As List
    lst0 = File.ListFiles("/sdcard1/")
   
    For i = 0 To lst0.Size - 1
        lblFiles.Text = lblFiles.Text & CRLF & lst0.Get(i)
    Next
End Sub
But now it raises an error 'object must first be initialized' which means that the List lst0 is Null.
It raises the error only in release mode but it works in Debug(legacy) mode B4ABridge Bluetoth !?

The unfiltered log shows this:
