7. ENJOY transferring files via WiFi instead of using an USB cable!!!


WINDOWS XP/VISTA/7/8.x USERS

To make to work MiFileExplorer modded by me or any other version is A PIECE OF CAKE in Windows!

1°. Enable the FTP server
2º. Go to your PC/laptop and open Windows Explorer or any folder (Windows Explorer ISN'T INTERNET EXPLORER)
3º. Put this: "ftp://xxx.xxx.x.xxx:xxxx" in the address bar, as the IP address set by the aplication and press ENTER
4º. ENJOY transferring files via WiFi instead of using an USB cable!!!!


HELLYEAH!!!

Share> (long press on the icon) Edit> Set your own values!, by default the address is "/mnt/sdcard" if you want to change it to other address, you need to make a new folder in your sdcard or put an address there.
Example1: (creating a new folder un your sdcard) you create "ftp" folder in your sd card, so the address will be "/mnt/sdcard/ftp" (without quotes)
Example2: (link the existing folder) "download" folder is created by default when you open internet browser, so put this address "/mnt/sdcard/download"

You only can access to the specified folder in the path in "My network sites", but if you want to access to ALL sd card folders set by default "/mnt/sdcard"

FIRST POST UPDATED!

I hope it work for you!
I've never had any problem with it...
