    so i have been searching for some time now and it is clear that i may have to code this one myself. which is cool.... i got the dev kit all set just never really needed it!

    i have seen posts like this one:

    i am wondering if it is possible to create a virtual directory within the android system without root, and if so will my apps be able to read files out of them as normal, obviously with some amount of loading time

    edit: eventually i will set up the directory to come from an external ip such as an ftp or idk something else

    No root is needed to obtain any system folder access.
