And for your patience.

I'm not sure how this works for the file manager (and I'm not speaking for HP) but in general, leveraging the power of the existing system instead of separately coding allows for a greater amount of functionality from a smaller resource footprint, as well as saving the time to which you refer...although that time can return, when there are changes or later versions of the OS.

[EDIT] Coincidentally I'm planning to flash this week's LOS 14.1 build tonight... now thinking about breaking the file manager in last week's build in different ways first to see what happens to MiX. Will share any relevant observations.

There's no point in thinking about the built-in file manager as a file manager. It is not meant as such. Google despises file managers as much as external or portable filesystems.

It's just a necessity they realized they couldn't do without to manage storage permissions and it's used by the OS now, so we're stuck with it. Even if Hootan went through the trouble of coding an alternative way around it ( and every other developer did as well, which won't happen ), it'd be more work than it's worth, especially when Google will break it all again with the next Android version, as they do when it comes to external storage basically every single time there's a new Android version.

Worth of note is that "Recursive Data" is back again in the View menu, and it's necessary that "Recursive Size" is unchecked in Settings for it to work.

(And with it enabled, an old little bug returns: for a subfolder with Recursive Data active, when you climb to its parent folder, sizes will be calculated even when the parent folder don't have the option enabled for itself.)

Fair enough, fair enough, i was kinda expecting that but it never hurts asking.

It's no biggie, the com.android.documentsui can go back in the mix as it does not take too much space anyway.

Cool slightly off topic question for those guys smarter than me (like 80% of the people out there ) : Any terminal command/s to create or delete shortcuts on home screen on android ?

Unlikely. That's a launcher function since each launcher has its own set of shortcuts, which are stored in a DB in the launchers data directory.

Why don't you pay him to do it or please ask in a way that doesn't come off as very rude.

There are add-ons for sale in the Play Store, and even better, a PayPal link for donations ( see OP ) ... Thank you for supporting hardworking developers.

@HootanParsa
Hi Hootan,
With the last builds I noticed that starting tcp, http or ftp server also activate the buttons back light on my device. The back light remains "ON", until the server is stopped .
Is this a wanted behaviour? Or is this a bug?

I am on a Samsung a5 2017 with nougat 7.0
Thank you!
