Driver is at OS level.

It is something you install on the OS, in android case, linux. And that is
not pratical, eventually impossible since there is a lot of variations.

However you can load a protocol implementation, that eventually is what you
have in hands.

To talk with FTDI i had to write my own class and send the byte codes and
get the results. But this is not necessary anymore.
