Unable to sign in from Android 13 device, Anytype v0.26.26

WHAT IS THE BUG
Detail what the bug does or prevents from doing:

After reinstalling the app on one of my Android devices and entering my passphrase or QR code, the app keeps showing “Entering the Void…” and I cannot sign in to my Anytype account.

HOW TO REPRODUCE IT
Outline the steps needed to reproduce the behavior in sequence:

  1. Install the app v0.26.26 from Play Store or Anytype.io.
  2. Open the app.
  3. Try to sign in to an existing account.

THE EXPECTED BEHAVIOR

ADDITIONAL CONTEXT
If further context, people, or related Bug Reports need to be mentioned, do so right here.

I have Anytype installed on a Windows PC and two Android devices. After the last Android update, my Android 13 device seemed unable to sync some images I had recently added on desktop. I cleared cache & data, deleted the app, downloaded it again from Play Store, reinstalled it and then encountered this issue.
Repeating the process with the Universal app or using the Android device as hotspot for my PC did not make any difference.
I created a new account from the Android app just to be able to copy the tech info. Switching accounts (log out of new account - sign in to old account) and changing the Android system language to English (to rule out any localization bug) did not work either.
On my other Android 11 device, my account is working as expected: images and data are syncing with desktop in no time. In this device, however, the app version is 0.26.20. Given the current issue, I am hesitant to update this device to 0.26.26, but will do if asked for testing purposes

I managed to solve this issue in a rather convoluted way that I am posting here in case anyone finds the same issue:

  1. Clean uninstall of v0.26.26.
  2. Install v0.26.20 from GitHub.
  3. Successful sing in on Android.
  4. Most objects, types, relations and sets missing in Android app (but fine on other devices).
  5. Dirty uninstall (without clearing cache or data).
  6. Install v0.26.26 from Play Store.
  7. Successful sign in on Android, finally!!!
  8. All objects, types etc. are showing. Just one random “Error loading image” in a page.
