New App on market

Market Name: SU File Browser & Terminal
Developer: Protocol - X

Search for SU, Root, or pub:"Protocol-x"

Or click and or Scan this image if u have the reader installed on your Android Device.


Currently supports normal file browser commands: cut, copy, paste, rename, new directory, open ect.
ability to chmod a file or directory from the file browser with one click.
File search functionality whole partial any non case sensitive.
open, edit, save, save as, preview text,xml, css, html basically any readable format.

built in terminal emulator with soft keyboard support for devices without a hard keyboard.

This is still a beta so there are a few bugs as well as some soon to come UI changes.

keep in mind this is not ugly but it is not meant to be a "pretty" file browser. There are enough of those out there. This was designed for functionality.











***Fixed*** Known bugs:
Enter Key on soft keyboard does not work in terminal client. need to use the trackball >>if anyone knows this fix id love to hear it.<<

soft keyboard in landscape mode needs to be toggled on 2x the first time you open it.

Post any Bugs, issues, or ideas here please

Updates:

Changed Search UI so that it is no longer its own activity. This will allow the user to back out of the search box and still use the switcher on the bottom to switch between search, browse, and terminal.

Replaced pop up in search box with Search hint.

Corrected the trackball from defaulting to control key when changing Terminal prefs. Basically it will allow it to work as the enter key again after changing preferences.

Current users will have to change the preferences the first time they update in order to correct the issue if you previously had it.

menu> preferences> command key: select something other than jog ball


Updates 1.5:

Fixed Search UI bug
added preferences for List color, Text Size, and Selector Color


New:

Added ability to create sym links

Updates 1.6:

Email Support

Better thread processing to prevent system hangs and crashes.

Random amusement?


Updates 1.7:

Multiple Viewer and editor support Support



Issue with 1.7:

It appears that something was miscodded causing crashing whenever a dialog attempts to appear this will be fixed tonight I appologize in advance.

The app is currently unpublished for now. until i can fix this


1.7 Re-Published as 1.7.1:

Delete / Paste Crash Fixed

Update 1.7.5:

Search Fixed for Newer Hero Build
Current Directory/Browse To bar implemented
Partition RW/RO Status added


Update 1.7.8:

Filter set up for "Browse To" bar to prevent typos.
Bugs: Symlinks Broke?
Not sure if symlink in the code is broken or maybe if its this new hero build 2.3.3 I tried to manually create a link and that fails as well.
Any Feedback on this one would be appreciated.


Update 1.9:

Cleaned up a lot of code
added some additional menu icons
Better Alert descriptions
file support to the Browse to bar for manual entries




Update 1.9.5:

Recursive Zip Support Added for Extraction
Compressions support in the works.
view, extract all or single targets to the directory of your choice.
Remember u must Mount as RW if you would like to extract to anywhere other than in your SD card.

More terminal colors added per request:
Amber on Black
Green on Black
Red on Black

More code clean up


Update 1.9.9:


System/Data RW/RO replaced with S & D buttons as well as option to remount on click or from menu still
Optional Expandable tool bar added with:
Settable Home Button
Bookmarks
Quick Exit


Update 2.0:


Browser Download Helper Added per requests


Update 2.1:


Multi Select support added. no buttons needed, just click the icon next to the file. You can also select across multiple directories so be careful :)
Zip File Creation Added. You can Zip ALL files unlike other zip apps out there. Zipping files on other partitions than the sdcard may be slower though due to the special means needed for the files to be zippable.
Unzip/install apk option added for those that wanted to be able to view the apk contents
Download helper change. Hopefully this will fix the issue that arose with android 1.5 and email crashing with txt html and pdf files if u had astro, download crutch or any download helper


Update 2.1.6:


Viewable Hidden files


Update 2.5:


Added button to toggle View hidden Files
Tool bar will now save your last selected instance when you re-open the app.
random bug fixes.
Added lots more Bugs just for fun & everyone's aggravation
Added ability to connect to your PC via wifi over a shared network setup (Should work in all OS but only tested in windows)
If you are having issues with this make sure you fully set up shared networking on your pc.
PC browser has all of the same abilities as device. you can copy back and forth between the 2 cut paste delete ect.



Update 3.25:


grep free remount code
Syntax Highlighting
APK XML Binary viewer

Not that this matters but for some reason this is named "SU File Manager & Terminal" in my market. It wouldn't find it under "SU File Browser & Terminal" just so you know.
