In Android's Bionic libc, the implementation of dlopen() resides in the
dynamic loader, and not present in  So to obtain the pointer to
dlopen the code like above can use dlsym(RTLD_DEFAULT, "dlopen"), but not
RTLD_NEXT (the loader precedes the fakeroot library in the lookup chain).

The preceding discussion seems to have libc and libdl switched.  Normally the
implementation of dlopen is found in, but not in

Hope that helps,
