    I'm asking for this for some time but I can't find an answer. I'm trying to connect an external hard drive to my passport, but I don't want to format it as exFAT. Terminal emulator could help using mount command but I don't have root permissions. There is one way: if I can't get a root password, why don't use fakeroot? But I don't have a linux PC now, so I can't build it. Can I have a binary, or are there another ways?

    IMPORTANT: DO NOT write something like "bb10 doesn't support NTFS". QNX has a built-in ntfs driver since version 6 (bb is 8.0.0 based), even if it's removed/absent why don't try it?

    Has anyone a fakeroot binary?-img_20170221_222427.png

    Okay.

    How about... "BB10 can't be rooted"

    Believe me, if it could be, we would have heard of it by now.

    Even whatever this does may not work with the QNX kernel

    I don't know if it will do what you want.... there were some playing around with fakeroot on BB10 back in the early days.

    I see it's not really trying to root, but compatibility with what it expects to fake may be the issue.

    Thanks, but NDK doesn't work on my computer. I can't build a binary, so these sources are useless for me.

    Just for clarification fakeroot is not rooting the device!

    I just saw it. I am not a programmer, and wondered if those modified BlackBerry devices included having been rooted.

    Hmmm I'm very surprised about your question ...
    Fakeroot is a unix command line tool that allows you to use some software *as if* you were root on your system. So the commands like "chown, chgrp" will be allowed inside a fakeroot context.
