Ok, I upgraded to the latest Android Things and now also get the error.

Background:
1. SDK 25
2. All modules up to date.
3. Original app worked 100% on older Things and B4A 7.
4. B4A 8

The code supplied is just two tests:
1. Define pm
2. Init pm - where the app crash
3. I removed the line:
B4X:
    File.WriteString(File.DirRootExternal, "Limits.txt", "100~200" )
because I could not get write access to external

What I noted:
1. If I remember correctly I HAD to put this line
B4X:
  AddApplicationText(<uses-library android:name="com.google.android.things"/>)
in the manifest editor or the app will not execute on the Pi.
Now it does not matter.

2. I was under the impression the marked line in the 'AndroidManifest.xml' will allow write access to the external storage. does not seems to do anything.

3. adding
B4X:
 <uses-permission android:name="com.google.android.things.permission.USE_PERIPHERAL_IO" />
as per Google to the manifest does nothing.

Sample of final manifest.
B4X:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    package="b4a.example"
    android:versionCode="1"
    android:versionName=""
    android:installLocation="internalOnly">
  
    <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="5" android:targetSdkVersion="24"/>
    <supports-screens android:largeScreens="true"
        android:normalScreens="true"
        android:smallScreens="true"
        android:anyDensity="true"/>
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET"/>
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH"/>
====>>    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH_ADMIN"/>
    <application
        android:icon="@drawable/icon"
        android:label="B4A Example">
      
        <uses-library android:name="com.google.android.things"/>
        <activity
            android:windowSoftInputMode="stateHidden"
            android:launchMode="singleTop"
            android:name=".main"
            android:label="B4A Example"
            android:screenOrientation="unspecified">
            <intent-filter>
               <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
               <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
            </intent-filter>
          
        </activity>
        <service android:name=".starter">
        </service>
        <receiver android:name=".starter$starter_BR">
        </receiver>
    </application>
</manifest>

Any help will be appreciated.

THANK YOU!!!! all working again.

The system is used in a foundry to remotely monitor the mass in the ladle. (Radio modems) The last few days was a nightmare for them as they had to estimate the mass and the mold was not filled correctly a few times.

The power supply of the Pi packed up and damaged the SD card.

thanks again.
