We've ported over an android app that makes use of a .nomedia file to prevent our images/audio files that our app downloads from appearing in the stock image gallery/music player. It doesn't appear that .nomedia is not being recognized by the BB10 android runtime? We've also tried using .metadata_never_index but that doesn't seem to work either. Any suggestions?

We did have an issue open for .nomedia support which should be resolved and available in 10.1
Have you tested against the 10.1 build?

The only information on .nomedia is on the Android Developer website under Storage Options as a side note.
Include an empty file named
.nomedia in your external files directory (note the dot prefix in the filename). This will prevent Android's media scanner from reading your media files and including them in apps like Gallery or Music.
I believe .metadata_never_index is something implemented by Apple on a few of their devices.

Have you closed/reopened the media app after adding the .nomedia?
If you have files showing up in the app, then add the .nomedia, it may not re-index until you restart the device.
