Hi folks!

Is it possible to move the whole android subsystem into a seperate directory, e.g. /opt/android?

That would tidy up the root directory and one could easily recognise which files belong to which system.

I am used to the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard that normally apply to all Linux distributions. And now I am a little confused with all those android folders between them. Is it nessesary that they are in the root directory?

Thanks and good day PyroDevil

Changing it now would make some shenanigans happen with the installed apps, but if they can make the phone to automatically tidy up everything without making everything sad, it would be great to have this.

so this weird stuff populating the root dir is for Alien Dalvik! Yes, it would be great if they could be moved away from root. I wonder why they've been put there in the first place...

I suspect they have done it this way so that they don't need to fiddle with fakeroot, chroot or whatever.
