Issue and comparison of Android builds

In both the January 2023 and December 2022 builds of android, there is an issue with Storage Access Framework. Many apps that use the old API crash.

Interestingly, the September 2022 (which is presumably the same android version, but an older build) has no issues.

However, the September 2022 has a separate issue: it will allow some apps to go in sideways-portrait mode (basically 90 degrees rotated) and will not return to normal landscape mode. Changing/messing with the “auto rotate” setting does not fix this. I can download a screenrotator app that forces the system into landscape mode (for my TV), but this should not be necessary.
