Hey is anyone who would be a bigger Android nerd than I am able to tell me if system apps under /system/priv-apps are able to override the Android permissions system? By this I mean, do stuff like, using the Microphone, without prompting the user for the permission and not displaying it needs that permissions in the Apps menu

@Siphonay I don't think they do, but don't quote me on that

@Thib "I don't think they do, but don't quote me on that" -ThibG

I don't think that's the method used for that, no. But I don't really know; I barely know how to install Termux, TBH.
