How to&Answers:

Don’t know if you solved your problem, but here’s how I implemented a multiple selection with the Storage Access Framework

    Intent filePickerIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_OPEN_DOCUMENT);
    filePickerIntent.setType("*/*");
    filePickerIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_ALLOW_MULTIPLE, true);
    startActivityForResult(filePickerIntent, REQUEST_CODE);

In the Activity Result method, you just need to iterate the ClipData in the Intent parameter

@Override
protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data)
{
    if(requestCode == REQUEST_CODE)
    {
        if(data != null)
        {
            ClipData clipData = data.getClipData();
            for(int i = 0; i < clipData.getItemCount(); i++)
            {
                ClipData.Item path = clipData.getItemAt(i);
                Log.i("Path:",path.toString());
            }
        }
    }
}

To select multiple files in the Storage Access Framework Activity UI, just hold press any item and the multi selection will activate.
