Hm=2C are the issues related to that library being in an APK? I don't see h=
ow you can=20
have Android give you access to somebody else's library unless you have bee=
n signed
with the same private key. If you are saying 'technically' accessing system=
libraries=20
then I agree but in that case you have an issue with distributing the libra=
ry as you=20
cannot distribute system libraries via the Android processes.

Perhaps I have missed the point=2C Android security prevents you accessing =
resources
that you have not been given a priori permission to use to ensure the syste=
m cannot
be compromised by malicious code. If you want to root your device and hack =
it to get
to the point where you can overcome that security then that can be achieved=
but that
comes back to another point I made:=20

Why introduce that level of complexity into the system?=20

Why not just get a Linux port for your handset/tablet and have done?

Regards=2C nick.
