Good morning,

I have purchased S22 Ultra and installed all the apps i use, when i tried to download a torrent file via Utorrent, the application crashed and stopped. Unistalled it, downloaded again, and the same happened. Tried with three other torrent applications, allcrashed the moment they started.

even downloaded torrent app from samsung store and same happened.

Phone is up to date with all updates! 

Is there a sollution for this or im required t change the phone??

Help please!

No, unfortunatly.

My collegue bought s22 plus from samsung website US and he does not have this issue.

I bought mine from amazon on prime day.

Every time it starts the torrent (any client) the app crashes..

There must be a sollution..

Dude!! I figured it out. I believe it has to do with Android 12 and folder permissions.

The default location for the torrents to download for me was: /storage/emulated/0/Download

After changing this download location to /storage/emulated/0/Android/media

I created a folder there called "torrents" so full path is: /storage/emulated/0/Android/media/torrents

It would no longer crash using the app Flud. 

Hope this works for you!

Hey,

in client uTorrent , it does not allow to change the download folder for some reason.

I will try with this other app..

Same exact issue. Never had a problem with my s21 ultra. I've tried factory resetting clean and nothing

 

Tried multiple torrent apps too. Flud, utorrent pro , etc. Major issue!
