Access to /sdcard/Download folder from native code

Do you guys have any examples of working code that is able to access the /sdcard/Download folder from a Quest/Quest 2 device? There is not much info out there; you find contradictory statements about apps being already able to do it *or* apps requiring READ/WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permissions *or* using specialized Android APIs.

 

Has anyone managed to access data from there using their own code, that would like to share here?

The Oculus system software is based of Android 10, and I think Android has gotten stricter about application permissions. I would take a look at what's required to do the same thing in Android 10. I believe it requires an explicit permission request from the application (not just a key in the manifest).
