This is a BETA version and will have issues

I got tired of using ADB by hand for a lot of operations, and thought well hey let's write something for that. I know about DDMS and ADB Explorer, but they aren't always exactly what I want/need.

Yeah this is a beta version and will have issues.. No warranty, use at your own risk, etc. I'll try to update this in the future. I have a lot of ideas of things to add/improve/fix still.

Requirements and Recommendations

- Required: .Net 3.5 framework
- Required: A working "adb shell" setup

- Recommended: writable /sdcard
- Recommended: root (via su) - note that a lot of things should work without root, but I haven't done any extensive testing on that
- Recommended: busybox


- (also root) Explorer
--- View / Edit files directly in Notepad (optionally converting dos<->unix newlines)
--- Retrieve / add / replace files
--- Rename / delete/ chmod/ chown / checksum
--- New directory / symlink
- Locate (find all filenames matching a certain string)
- ADB shell
- ADB logcat
- ADB (command log)
- Packages
--- Install package (system copy, user copy, ADB install, with or without ODEX, etc)
--- List / backup / remove user and system packages

Retrieving / viewing / editing / replacing / adding files all use workarounds to be able to do this to files that cannot be directly pushed/pulled by ADB, but this functionality does depend on busybox being available.

Donations appreciated, you can do so here: http://www.jongma.org/dx.php

Extract the ZIP and put the EXE in the same folder where you have ADB. Also make sure your phone is working with the normal "adb shell" command.

Usage notes
- Please make sure your device is connected in USB debug mode before using ADB Magic !
- Please make sure you do not have the SD cards mounted to your PC !

- This has been developed only with a Galaxy S, so I'm not sure how well it'll work with other devices
