Hi, thanks for your interest in this app!

If you use it, please do post feedback about success, failure, suggestions for improvement etc. Be sure to include the app version you have installed (Menu -> Settings -> About), your Android device make, model & ROM version, and support log file if you are having problems (Menu -> Settings -> Create Support Log - send via PM or e-mail, please dont post the log to the forums).

Am also interested to hear about copy xfer rates to/from your device. My HTC Hero gets between 700 KB/s to 1MB/s, my Asus Transformer about 2.5MB/s.

This app requires your device to already have:
- root access.
- Superuser or later, from Android Market (may work with other Android 'su' implementations but I havent tested with any others).

* The two most recent development builds are attached below.
* Or you can Install the current Android Market version:

On the first run, make sure you catch the SuperUser Auth request to allow the Samba Filesharing app root access.

Also, the first run will be a bit slow, the app has to unpack some additional binaries into its private data space.

GPL: Samba GPL licensing information including source code modification details are included in the app. Once installed go to Menu -> Settings -> About.

Dev builds attached below - To install: unzip, and either:
- ADB: adb install SambaFilesharing<version>.apk
- FileManager: Copy the APK to /sdcard on your device, then launch with a filemanager program (like Astro).
(Dev build change history)

To-Do list (in no particular order)

- Improve support for devices (eg Tablets) with multiple 'sdcard' type storage devices.
- multiple/more configurable shared folders, multiple user accounts.
- add in a CIFS mount manager
- Improve available characters and lengths of username, password, workgroup, netbios-name fields.
- toggle widget
- Add option for persistent display of app 'Menu' button items.
