Modes and routines wallpaper change after UI 6.1

Samsung S23 One UI 6.1

Routines not ending.

I have had routines set up for a while that changes the home screen wallpaper on receipt of notification from an event set in the Google calendar app. This allows me to display a relevant home screen image for a specific date. 

It has always worked well

But it has stopped working. I think since the last software update to One UI 6.1

Now in routines I have a WHEN ROUTINE ENDS function that I cannot edit.

When the notification is received it doesn't change the wallpaper as it says ...

"Couldn't perform this action because another operation is preventing it"

If I try to add a new routine for another date it won't allow me to select change home screen wallpaper. 

It used to just run a routine on receipt of notification and do the action, but now it seems to continue running the routine without stopping.

I am unable to edit or remove "when routine ends"

As it is performing an action from a notification it hasn't got and doesn't need an end, but I can't have a routine without and end argument ?

Now when a routine is triggered I get a notification that it is running, but without a possible end point?

It used to work fine before UI 6.1

 So I've deleted all the modes and routines I had set up.. 

If I now try to add a new routine, I still get the message..

Couldn't perform this action because another operation is preventing it

So after deleting all my modes and routines I started again. 

 

Without the IF notification received I can add a change to wallpaper.

But it then won't let me add the notification received...

 

This is completely broken!

I have disabled modes and routines, cleared cache and restarted the phone. Then re-enabled modes and routines all to no avail

Same Problem on the z fold 5 after UI 6.1 update

So after more wasted time working on routines, I have come to the conclusion that they are now utterly useless. 

I can't do anything worth setting one up for.. 

 

Please revert the update .. they worked very well before!

Can confirm, problem happens and also broke my most used routines (I like to have a bright wallpaper during daytime and plain black during the night. They decided to fix what didn't need to be fixed).

The main issue I have is someone had the great idea that routines that change wallpapers must forcefully reverted after they are run, so either they are perpetually running to maintain their purpose (just like... what Modes are for). Otherwise, as soon as they stop running, the wallpaper is forcefully reverted when there is nothing to be gained from this reversion.

 

The craziest thing is that this update has been out since the end of March and this issue is still unresolved...

 

Bit by bit, Samsung is working real hard to add annoying issues to their phones and drive people to the competition.
