I see that of course the full node for android is already compiled.
i pray that I do not have to reverse engineer it (it goes against my principles),
but rather may I ask to obtain the source along with the android "wrapper" - and also if you used Android Studio, what version did you use? The last time I tried to recompile my language app I had major problems because some library dependencies were deprecated in the new Android Studio, and I never bothered recompiling as I cannot afford marketing it (it is aimed for the Chinese market. Chinese trademark and software copyright certificates are not expensive but publishing to a spread of 20 appstores via the online international app publisher present there, appinchina.co, is prohibitively expensive for me, a Universisty student - and to think I coded that Beginner English language app alone for almost three years...
My goal is indeed to create my own blockchain independent of Ardor and Nxt, and would want users to run full nodes on their phones as an important optional aspect of the ecosystem... this could be a great additional service for company intranets also possibly, i.e. a seure company messaging app to avoid industrial espionage (I know it sounds far fetched, but if you realise what is happening in China you will realise it is not).
I feel like I am ordering a meal at a restaurant without paying - yet.
But please could you assist with the apk source and give some contextual information on how it was compiled (what Studio versions, etc.) because reverse engineering is morally offensive to me. Thank you.
