vector map theme

I have a new Android 12 phone, Locus 3.66.2 and I tried to download Finnish topographic offline map. The map downloaded OK, but I couldn't get the themes to work.
I tried to access android/data/menion/... and couldn't
So I loaded the files into android/media/menion.android.locus.pro/mapsvector/_themes/mtk_suomi.xml and mml directory.
But the theme is not available, I only see gray map with some black (dashed) lines.
What did I do wrong?

Hi,
the correct path should be \Android\data\menion.android.locus.pro\files\Locus\mapsVector\_themes\ But this folder is basically hidden for most of filebrowser app on Android 11 and higher. But there are some alternative solutions:
- pack theme into .zip archive > copy to the any "visible" folder (for example "Downloads") > use system file browser > navigate to the folder "Downloads" > tap on .zip file > select Locus Map app to open it and submit import of the theme
- some alternative theme creators offer downloads using the so-called "Locus action", where the theme can be downloaded directly to the correct folder
- you can also try to connect device to PC a copy theme from PC to the required folder
