Hi,

After android 1.0 onwards, android is not providing any permission to access .apk files at the runtime. So Regarding android Hacking chapter, Is there any way to change that permission and call the .apk file at the runtime which resides in the /sdcard.

My aim is to transfer a .apk file from the desktop during the application execution , store it in the /sdcard and call it dynamically using PathClassLoader.

Thanks in advance.

Since you cannot launch apk form Sd card I would imagine it would not matter as you would not be ale to call classes of apk on sd card as well..

I don't know exactly how they do it, but there is an app in the Android Market that lets you install apps from the SDCard - APK Installer - I use it frequently actually. I haven't looked into the details, but you can load packages and so on from the APIs (shouldn't be too tough to figure out).
