Android :- Set application permission

  • This is more like a Android question. How do I set permissions for the Android apks generated using Qt creator. Basically, my GUI needs to access usb and any hid devices. But not sure how to set appropriate permissions.
    I have verified, the problem is permission by writing equivalent binary in cpp and running it as root and normal shell user.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Within the ANDROID_PACKAGE_SOURCE_DIR (defined in .pro) , add AndroidManifest.xml and set the permission inside the file.

  • Thank you for the reply. But what permission do I set. I tried setting permission
    "android.permission.ACCESS_SUPERUSER" . But the app when deployed does not seem to request for root access. I checked the app list in superSU in which may application is not present.

  • @tonysonney :
    Whenever you execute SU command programmatically in your application, you should get pop-up to allow app for root access, I think after that you will be able to see your app in superSU list .
