How to access /Android/obb directory on Android 11

On Android 11, Google has enforced stroage restriction a lot due to privacy, means apps will no longer have access to each other, etc. even file manager apps can't access to /Android/data and /Android/obb directory. This is called Scoped storage

 

This is what happen if you try to access it. It will appear empty

 

 

You would need a computer to access them normally

 

But there is still a way to access /Android/obb directory without a PC (except /Android/data). You will need to allow "install unknwon apps" permission in order to access it

 

On your launcher, hold an app icon and open App info

Or open Settings -> Apps & notifications -> See all (xxx) apps. Select your app to view App info

 

 

Expand Advanced and select Install unknown apps


 

Enable "Allow from this source"


 

Now you can access /Android/obb directory and you can copy OBB, do OBB trick… whatever you want.

I repeat, you still can't access /Android/data
