I want to edit one of my apks (specifically Clash of Clans) and I can't find it's location on my phone. I have ES File Explorer and I have still have trouble locating it. My phone is the Galaxy S4 and there is no data/app folder or system/app folder so I have no clue where it is. If anyone could help me that would be great, thank you.

Applications that don't come bundled with the ROM are installed in /data/app (not data/app - even though your file explorer may hide the leading slash).

You can't read /data/app without root permissions. That's probably your problem.

Eh, my device is rooted and I still couldn't find /data/app even with root permissions enabled. All I did instead was send a copy app and that seemed to work (ES File Explorer to Dropbox). Thank you though.
