Hi Guys,

I was wondering if there were any AOSP Roms out there with built-in File Managers? It sucks having to go to Google Play to download one, just to install the rest of my programs.

Thanks in advance.

Off the top of my head, slim includes one.

Alternatively, You can also just use titanium to create a flashable zip of your necessary apps (requires pro version I believe)

Alternatively to that, using 7zip on pc , you can also just drag and drop whatever apk you want into the system folder of whatever gapps package you flash when you flash roms. Or you can drag and drop the apk into system or data folder of whatever rom.zip you want to flash, If you have a computer handy regularly. (I find gapps easier because I download gapps packages WAY less often.)

i'd rather just choose the rom i like then worry about some file manager.
it takes about a minute to go to play store and install es file explorer and then install titanium to recover your apps.
i agree it would be handy if every rom had a file explorer but downloading doesn't take much time.

Lol just wanted to say that but you beat me to it.

Edit: Still, I always download ES file and delete the one in the rom.
