Cannot import Tasker Profiles

    Running Android 2.3.4 on HTC Thunderbolt and I've purchased the full version of Tasker

    I have yet to figure out how to successfully import Tasker profiles to my device. I've visited many websites and have yet to find a reliable resource that explains what I'm doing wrong, or why this won't work.

    I understand that you must place Tasker profiles in the /sdcard/Tasker/profiles directory, but I do not have a Profiles folder in the Tasker directory.

    (apparently I'm not allowed to include links in my first post)

    I've manually created a folder named 'profiles' and included some tasker profiles I've downloaded in that folder. These files are in .xml format.

    When I open Tasker and long-press the Profiles button and then click Import, I see nothing.

    I've also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app, but it behaves the same way regardless.


    My questions:

    Why do I not have a 'profiles' folder in my /sdcard/Tasker/ directory?

    Why, when I manually create that 'profiles' folder am I still unable to import anything?

    Does anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong?

    I just checked mine and I no longer had a "profiles" folder.

    When I went into tasker, I went to "Import" and it showed me a profiles folder. Then when I went back to /sdcard/tasker/, the folder was there. I put a profile in there and I could import it.

    Maybe try delete your folder you created, restart the phone and do what I did.

However, a few of the actions (like the Airplane Mode action and the Mobile Data action on some devices) require root. Regarding those few actions that do require root, this is because of Android security policies that developers cannot work around. ☑ Other Triggers
