    Hi,

    You can not get access to /sys/ folder.

    For that you will need TCB access, which you need to request from Nokia/Symbian, which I doubt they would be ready to give, unless you have a pressing need.

    Welcome to the Forum Nokia Developer Discussion boards.

    I could suggest you to begin with reading about Symbian Platform Security Model and Capabilities:



    I want to have read/write access to /sys/ folder and to all other folders on phone.
    Check information about AllFiles and TCB capabilities.

    Only to the memory card not to the internal phone memory...

    Anyway - don't forget that this forum concentrates on development related issues. You can post your user-related issues at http://discussions.europe.nokia.com/

    Also note that even if you can access TCB/AllFiles protected folders of the memory card in USB Mass Storage mode, the executables (.exe-s and .dll-s in sys/bin) are still protected by the device, they will not work if you modify them.
