Monkey X Android File System Access?
« on: June 23, 2017, 10:02:28 PM »

Hi, is there a way or module to read or access files or local file system in android other than the assets monkey://data folder?

No that's almost impossible due to the sandbox stuff. Apps usually are not allowed to read anything not related to their own space, except for apps that have root permissions on a rooted device.

Thanks Martin. Yes, I also thought this might be related to having root access.

I've managed to navigate files using a 'browse' button on tablets / phones without root access malarky, within the HTML5 compiler.

Might not be exactly what you were looking for, here's a hyperlink to the thread...
