I need to modify a folder under the data folder in android, I can navigate to it but don't have write access. I wish to do this without having to root my phone. I have tried various folder programs and no luck. There should be a trick out there. Please help!!! TIA

download Google Files. Hold the app and goto app info, In last allow both "modify system" And "install unknown app" and you can copy and move from and to data folder now.

Android 11 onwards does not allow non OEM signed apps to access data folder

I got Android 12. So there is no way around it without root?

what i mentioned doesnt need root. just an app by google ( Google Files) or maybe Samsung ( Samsung Files). Try google first.
Did what you said, tried it on both and none show the hidden folder structure I need to get into. I can see the folder using a third party app like xolore but when I try to copy I get permission denied

You can access the folder but does it let you modify or add content? I try to add a file and permission denied

Yes it does and you can copy and paste to and from the folders asswell. I use it to backup my save and character files for Terraria.
