I'm a techie, so no need to warn me that I could hurt my phone or files - I'm only looking to READ, not WRITE, and I'd be making a copy of that file beforehand anyways and porting it to a PC in order to check it with whatever program is necessary to decrypt (Probably only need a hex editor, but if someone knows better, feel free to pass that information along, too :P)
Anyways, is it possible?
Thank you for your time.
You can get access to system files by using a file manager. To edit files, you need to root your phone.
If it is *.txt attachment that was attached in that mail, go to downloads and look for it.
Now, serious. Why so serious?
If you are looking to decompile that mail app, use APKTOOL to decompile. Search on xda for the links.
The apk file can be found on the device in: /system/app/ here
If the apk file is odexed, then you have to first deodex it to make it as one apk file Search on xda for the tutorials.
If you are asking to decrypt mails, ask NSA
I am a newbie here. So I don't know where that file is located exactly.
Press thanks if I have helped you.
