after today's update, I can't do anything with it because it states that it doesn't have the permission to operate. After a factory reset it still wouldn't work.
Please look at attachment for further info.

sigh another workaround for stupid Android.
For some reason Android no longer allows Aedict to write to the directory with dictionaries. Perhaps you have upgraded Android OS recently, or the directory permissions changed for unknown reasons.
Please try to take out the SD Card, insert it into your PC and manually delete the dictionaries. Then, after Aedict will ask to download the dictionaries, please provide a directory which Aedict can write into. Also, please try file managers such as ES File Manager, to delete the directory with the dictionaries.
If everything else fails, I have prepared a special "Emergency Dictionary Location Override" button, located in Settings / Dictionaries / Dictionary Manager / upper-right menu. It does not try to delete the dictionaries, instead, it will just abandon those non-writable dictionary directory and will ask the user for another location for the dictionaries. I know this is really stupid, but I an tired of endless SD-Card workarounds around endless problems with that stupid dumb fuck Android on 8400 Android phone kinds.

Implemented the "Emergency Dictionary Location Override" in Aedict 3.18.
