3.x versions:

App Icon Created by @PhysX for this app.
Some icons + Category Bar from MIUI File Manager (will be removed completely in the upcoming verions)
Folder Icons Found the folder icon on the web and modified it as applicable into various colours.

2.3.7.x versions:

The versions belonging to this series are based on the ported file explorer from the MIUI gingerbread ROM (miuiandroid_Defy-2.1.13 (Android v2.3.7) – 2012/1/16) to all 2.2+ android devices.

'Ported' basically means that:
- I decompiled the app and studied the structure.
- Then I extracted the theme resources, created a new project and tried to recreate the MIUI file manager in my own way.
- I reworked all the classes for the browse tab. FTP tab was easy because it's open source. Furthermore, I wrote a complex code for category tab which works on all kind of custom ROMs with different content provider.

I'd like to point out that the version initially published ( was written by me and I'm the only one who has it's sources. Hence, there is no relation between these series versions and MIUI file manager sources (ICS-Based) on Github. And it's not open-source.
All the apk files shared on XDA and other places with this package name "" belong to me.
I would, however, like to give credit to MIUI company for theme resources and also to their elegant design.

I don't really have any idea when MIUI company started to use "Mi" (as the prefix) in some of their projects. I assume some months after my first project. I have been using this prefix for some years now and it's derived from "MiProjects", which is my brand.
The conflict that has arised is quite vague but I do apologise for any misunderstandings I might have caused.

* (v6.x, v5.x, v4.x, v3.x, v2.x) All of the developers have free license to add this app in their custom ROM as default.
* (v4.x, v5.x, v6.x) Modifying APK not permitted because of security reasons.

Hi. Very good idea. The only thing i was missing was root explorer. I didn't test the app, but will as soon as possible. If nobody has an idea, than keep solving bugs^^. I hope you continue the work

Keep up the good work. I added root stuff to it ages ago in miui-au (but pretty poorly) as it was the only reason I needed another file manager. Well other than I do use zip/unzip, which is great to see you've added.

I had to push to system, wouldn't install the normal way. Perhaps it needs resigning?

I have given it a try since root exploring you have added, but I couldnt gain the root access.

All I can see is Browse, SDCard and FTp tabs, but how do I access the system partition of the files? Am I missing something here?
