Hi all. I am trying to figure out how to download and unzip a file from a URL to a local folder on an Android device.

 

Source file: https://www.dropbox.....9_New.zip?dl=1
 

Destination folder: /sdcard/Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/.files/

 

I can do it manually with a file manager, but I was hoping to find a 1 click solution.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks.

 

-K

Dumb question - if it's on the SD card, can you pop out the card and stick in a PC and copy it that way?  Or is it in a hidden folder or one that the PC is not able to access?

I want to make an apk available from my private droidadmin store that will automatically install my custom Kodi build.
Something that is one click idiot proof.

Edit: Effing autocorrect

Droidadmin (filelinked) code: 61177517

Bump! Anyone? This must be super easy for someone who knows Android. I want to d/l a zip from a fixed URL and unzip it to a specific location on an Android device.

If you haven't got an answer since June I suspect there's not enough Android developers with the specific skills you need here in the retro gaming community.

 

Have you tried a more general Android developer forum?
