Hi Luis

Sorry for the belated reply.

I'm glad you found a workable solution and shared it.

Another possibly should you 
reconsider: https://github.com/pmario/file-backups

pmario's file-backups extension works for me on Android 7.1.1 with a 
standalone TiddlyWiki html file running FireFox.

The key is to place the file a directory in the Downloads directory. My 
example path is file:///storage/emulated/0/Download/myWikis/wiki.html

Serial backups are made on save, I unset autosave to save hardware sd card 
wear and tear.

The file can also be synced with apps like AutoSync https://metactrl.com/

Unfortunately, like you, I found my handheld performance lacking in 
usability and use termux with VimWiki as a primary capture tool. 

TiddlyWiki still works and used for 1 off notes when I use Firefox
