After downloading packages I can not find the apk’s. In Fdroid, I can download and install them so they are somewhere. But, where?
States that there is a ‘cache’ folder. However, the only Fdroid location is “/storage/emulated/0/Android/data/org.fdroid.fdroid/files/” and it is empty. I did create a cache directory next to and within it but they remain empty.
Doesn’t even answer the OP’s question.
Is there another post which does?
What am I missing?
That directory does not need root permissions. The file manager won’t let me into any directories which need root permissions. I do have free and oprn access to “/storage/emulated/0/Android/data/org.fdroid.fdroid/files/”.
The APKs are stored in FDroids private storage, and as @Licaon_Kter wrote, you will need root to access them directly. You could however simply download the APKs from the FDroid website directly if you really need the APK file.
@ Everyone: Nothing in “/storage/emulated/0/Android/” requires root. Everything in their is user data or user app data. I have full and unrestricted access to the entirety of that directory, including files.
“…/data/data/…” is not a direcroy. “…/data/org.fdroid.fdroid/…” is.
It’s okay; I’m done. I know how to get what I want not the way I want it. Without the app I don’t have a place in the forum. As, there are a multitude of sites to download from. I would prefer an app, but oh well.
@ vdbhb59: I created the “/cache/apk/” directory myself in “/storage/emulated/0/Android/data/org.fdroid.fdroid/”. To date, no files have shown up there. Today I tried one more time with a fresh install and still had to create those folders by hand with the download going - where?
