After root, How can I del file(s) in /system with rootexplorer.
Which version of Android are you running? I don't believe that you can manipulate the /system files anymore on Android 13 as they are all read only - even with root. But hopefully, perhaps my file manager with root permissions just doesn't work as it hasn't been updated in almost two years =/.

Anyone else have any thoughts here?


@fil3s Does that happen to be working on A13?

I use Root explorer 😁 gets the job done.

It's my fault.The real question is files in /system could not be deleted.In my pixel 6 pro: unlock bootloader, install magisk and patch boot.img, flash patched boot.img with fastboot, reboot and directly root use magisk, everything is fine.But, I think the problem is /system could not be mounted

I can access / with it. Haven't tried mucking about much. I'm pretty sure you can copy / paste etc.. although I can't be sure on a13

It is a good file explorer. Worth the $' s of you wanna try it :)

But again, idk about 13

Soon my friends soon!
I'm working on it! 🛠️
If any Pixel users are interested in beta testing the new upcoming version of my SystemRW / SuperRW feat. MakeRW script just hit me up! Thanks! ;)(y)

Wait. So what exactly is preventing you guys from mounting as rw in Android 12+ ? :unsure:

I can copy and paste with the file manager that I use (FX File Explorer), however, I cannot cut or delete anything from /system. Are you able to cut/delete stuff from that section?

*Edit* - I'm starting to think that it's just my file manager =/

Update - Thanks @mkhcb . I'll give it a try in a week or two. I found a way to manipulate /system files using Magisk, haha. But after the next (and presumably final) A13 beta update comes out, I'll give it a shot!

Just try this: https://github.com/zhanghai/MaterialFiles

Open source, free, on FDroid and the Play Store. What do you have to lose other than 5 min of your time? Of all the apps on my phone, this is the most useful and took a while for me to find.

Yep. It beats RFE in measure except split view, I stand by that claim. The development is on another level.
So it actually does.

Go to a folder... Then hit the three dots... Then hit new window. You will then have 2 windows as noted in the app drawer.

From there you can toggle between windows or create a split screen.


PS. You can create an endless # of windows.
