'Tetra' for simple sdcard file management. 'Root Explorer' to access root.

in my opinion and for me the best file browser is the OI FILE MANAGER...

Another vote for FX File Manager. I've been using it for a long time. It is the most full-featured, and even includes a root-module for free, which means it does literally everything Root Explorer does but with a much nicer UI.

I even shelled out for the plus pack, but I certainly didn't have to. Give it a shot, these other File Managers just don't compare. (Unless you really, really need a Holo-themed file manager). It even has customizable themes if you don't like what it looks like.

Sliding Explorer for me. Beautiful, minimalistic holo design. Root functionality.
