[Free][App][2.3+] UNCOPT Holo File Browser w/ su, dual views
UNCOPT File Browser is the nicest and most innovative Holo styled file browser for Android with root capabilities.
It provides all the features needed to browse and organize your pictures, files, documents and videos. It gives you access to the internal storage, sd card, external usb storage devices, internal filesystem and more (with plugins) .
Unlike other available file browsers on the market, UNCOPT File Browser also offers unique features:
Resizable split view: a simple swipe will split the screen in two and give the user two independent browsable panels that can be resized at will. File managing becomes even easier and more efficient.
Efficient archive browsing (zip, tar): unlike other apps, the archive content is never extracted in a temporary folder (or even in memory). The specific parts that need to be accessed (to display or send them) are streamed on access.
Nested archives: unlike other apps, nested archive content can be listed and accessed. To the user there is no difference between a folder, an archive and a nested archive in terms of browsing. Archives can be nested in multiple levels.
Keyboard navigation: the keyboard navigation is fully functional.
Simple action bar navigation with interactive path.
Automatic sync with MediaStore (Gallery) and the MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) connection.
Complies completely with the Android Holo Style, even on Gingerbread.
On top of that you get all the usual features such as:
Copy/paste using official mechanism for compatibility with other apps.
Sort by file size, file name and modification date.
Create, delete, rename, send, bookmark files and folders.
Create zip files.
Shows thumbnails for APKs and images in gridview mode.
Multi file selection.
Local Network SMB protocol (windows shares), free plugin required.
Registers as a file picker so that other applications (such as gmail) can access the files too.
UNCOPT File Browser also provides tools for rooted devices:
Browse system files like any other (including system and user apps).
Change file permissions.
Automatically remount read-only filesystems as read-write.
suid/guid/sticky special permissions
Available on Google Play. Search for UNCOPT File Browser.
Tried it, looks really awesome, but won't test more, as one of the critical features I need (and probably many others) is Cloud support (Dropbox, Gdrive, etc.)
But it really has the best UI I saw in a file manager, very smooth, looks awesome even on my Optimus One's small screen
Edit: Like a post below me, I also hope you keep getting it better, it truly has HUGE potential (holo Solid Explorer)
It is on XDA Portal, so...
3. Moto G 16GB dual SIM (XT1033) [falcon]
Got in the sea with it in my pocket, goodbye
2. Samsung Galaxy S3 mini (GT I8190) - great development, bad battery, awesome phone to have as an XDA member, bad phone to have if you rely on Samsung, never rely on Samsung [golden]
1. LG Optimus One P500 - 4 year old budget device, still has KitKat o.O [thunderg/p500]
But there are some things i really miss right now or i would like to be changed maybe
-possbility to execute an apk(right now it just opens the content)
-drag and drop for files between the 2 tabs would be awesome
-maybe a possibilty to customize the view,like disable the file size part(because on a phone,even with 4,7" it takes up a lot of screen.
-sometimes it is a bit hard to hit the triangle for the menu of the file to show up
Just noticed I can hit the whole date/size space to open the file menu, nice
hope this amazing file explorer keeps updating,it really has a huge amount of potential
Im liking the whole Holo look and how it works to browse files, but I can't install simple apks? It just views it as if it was a zip files. i can easily install apks on other file browsers except this one? Maybe it's just me but thought i'd share the problem im having.
Those who might have thought that MediaTek wouldnever release working … more
