Thanks Troy!

I see this working with Bishop on my phone (Android 8.1.0). There Bishop 
reads from and writes to /sdcard/sword.

However, it is not working on my Tablet (Android 10). I do have SWORD 
directories there with this structure:

When starting Bishop on the Tablet it asks for permissions and after 
confirmation it does not show any existing modules based on the structure 

Best regards,
