>Starting with Android 11, users are restricted from accessing the /storage/android/data folder

lmao that's not how this works. I paid for the device, it's my god damned device, I shall not be restricted from doing a god damned thing to it.

So that slowed me down by about...idunno... A minute?

@r000t Having admin permissions by default should be mandatory on a device you paid for.

@r000t

One more reason to only buy devices you can install alternative operating systems on.

@PublicLewdness ehhhh there's a couple of reasons I like my phone being "official"

Bank apps, payment apps, being able to rely on CTS' security guarantees, etc.

@r000t

Well official means less user freedom to use it as you want. You can yell at Google all you want but I doubt they care.

@PublicLewdness I got the files extracted by mounting the phone on a Windows computer (MTP on gentoo is fucked rn)

Now I'm hitting every file with `strings` to find my buddy
