    Can they be changed?

    Specifically, it appears that if you get a permission request when you first load a sideloaded app, and allow it, you get an immediate crash (no error, the app just closes)

    If those permissions are optional rather than required the app will run but without them, and the app does not show up in the security tab, which means it appears there's no way to edit its permissions.

    Am I missing something or is this just a limitation of the apk->bar architecture?

    Yup, it is a limitation.

    Actually, even some native apps do not cooperate with the Permission entries under the Security Settings. Two that I initially installed but denied Permissions, were not in the List, could not be changed and one worked part-way, the other not at all.

    Ah well that's hopefully something that will get fixed, because it's the only thing that appears to prevent a lot of conversions from working -- they pass compatibility with either only a couple of level 1 complaints or in some cases none at all, but immediately pop up a permission request screen.

    If you do not approve all it wants the app instantly closes. If you DO approve them it appears to be loading and then immediately closes, but the entries are not in the security section -- it appears that they're not getting written into there, and that is causing the process to be terminated.
