Just in case I have a device from the same LOS branch on which this could be tested (and because I also test LOS) would you mind sharing the name of the LOS maintainer(s) for that LOS branch?
It might work pinching to zoom in/out as well. Just a wild guess.In 6.56.0 in enabled full dual panel to test it and didn't like it. But after disabling the option, grid became 2 column permanently, even when I use detailed view.
Edit: clean install seems to fix it.
After you connect the USB drive, open MiXplorer and tap on ADD in bottom toolbar > Document provider > Find the USB drive > "USE THIS FOLDER".I have encountered some problems with MiXplorer 6.56 on OmniROM 11-20210427-rpi-WEEKLY. When I attempt to access the external USB drive (which does aapear in the column on the left), I get "No item" with "Doesn't exist!" flashing briefly at the bottom. The included file manager opens it without any problem. Further, when I try to get into Internal storage / Android, the included file manager opens (with "USE THIS FOLDER" on the bottom of the screen). If I click fast, I can (sometimes) get into Android / Data, which again shows "No item" (the included file manager shows com.mixplorer in that folder, along with the other installed apps).
It's ok. The problem was using BitmapRegionDecoder with FileDescriptor and ProxyFileDescriptorCallback. I changed it back to use InputStream instead.@HootanParsa
I need your permission to share the app v6.55.5 with LineageOS developers so that they can solve the Bug of crashing the rom due to app crash.
Thanks for solving the bug in latest v6.56
Also the inbuilt video player lags too much for a .mov video file inside a encfs folder as compared to other external players.
It could be a cache issue
Then it's not valid. Check your Home folder in the Server settings.
Tap on the arrow Down button on the left side of the tab bar > Save tabs > Check On Exit.Bug: app doesn't remember folder location
MiXplorer version: 6.56.0 B21051510 (latest)
If killed in the background due to low RAM, MiXplorer doesn't remember the last folder it opened and restarts from the home page.
That's the system file chooser and app.@HootanParsa When I attach a file to a post I get to something that looks like it might be Mixplorer, but does not come right out and say so.
Whem inserting an image using Chrome, I get prompted to Choose an action:
View attachment 5308189
Is the blue one that says "File" Mixplorer? Can you change the name that is displayed? (Maybe "MiX File"?)
Once in the file chooser, the options are limited. If that's you, could you add an "About Mixplorer" to the three-dot menu?
Fixed. Thank you very much.
I read it. Aside from unlimited tabs and epub reader, I'm not sure there is anything else I can't do with Solid Explorer. I already use an epub reader that is quite complete (moon reader pro), I doubt that Mixplorer has all its functions.That's a bit more descriptive, and is an aesthetic preference partially (but admittedly not entirely) achievable with skins and themes. FWIW, my impression has been that MiX's "old" looks may be a byproduct of what makes it so skinable and work in such a small resource footprint.
In detailed assessments it might be found that MiX has more capability than Solid or most other similar apps but this is not to begrudge your choice. In most of these apps each of us typically uses only a subset of the features so the rest don't really matter. That being said, you seem to have made up your mind and mentioned a possible issue to support that decision without sharing details that establish it as an actual problem. Absent sufficient details and or logs that connection issue could be a configuration issue or an actual bug but with no supporting information neither could reasonably be declared.
To be clear, yes I'm pushing back at the possible tech issue without supporting details but not at your choice, in fact we share some agreement about the appearance in spite of having different tastes in that regard.
Well, hello everyone! I've a question, recently I've noticed that mixplorer isn't showing the entire contents of the "#/data/data/" I don't know what made it work that way, tried looking for settings, but nothing helped. Strangely, It's not totally empty either.
It shows two directories one is for mixplorer itself and another is "com.google.android.gms". Other than these two, nothing is being displayed. I can see those folders using other apps, so they're definitely there.
Can anyone please show me the way? Do we have a settings item for this? Any help will be really appreciated. And I'm sorry if this has been already answered. I just couldn't find it. In that case, maybe link me to it?
Please search for data/data in this thread for a long and deep discussion and solution for this limitation.
Thanks a lot, for providing the link to the discussion. Changing namespace to global worked in my case (Lavender, evolutionX, v5.8). You saved my sanity!Also, a search of the FAQ will find this https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/mixplorer-q-a-and-faq-user-manual.3308582/post-84791225, which links back to the discussion in this thread. That being said I echo the advice to search because then you will be able to tell what is relevant to your device as these things will vary by android version and ROM variant.
If I'm understanding right, you are reporting system file chooser asking you to authorize the use of the external storage, pretty normal, would be a problem if you not selected the root of the SD card after this, then system will ask for the permission, and again... But is not clear why you are not giving permission, yet want mix to work properly.Hmm, there seems to be a problem with MiXplorer after I put in a 64GB exFAT SD Card, whenever I launch MiXplorer there is anoter window that overlays ontop of it asking me to "select the folder" ... as if the File Explorer is trying to open MiXPlorer or something weird .... but it doesn't look like it's the default file explorer as it's a different looking GUI, however it is in the localized language and not English like MiXPlorer is. I did not want to click "Select Folder" yet and I keep trying things to figure out what it is doing, I'll remove the SD Card to see if that has any effect.
Phone is Galaxy A41
FW is A415FXXU1BUC3
I'll keep trying some stuff and then if nothing of that works, trying another version.
The Sandisk SD card came with exFAT fresh, I did not do any modifications to the filesystem. I was happy that Android finally supports exFAT, well it may did for some time, but on another phone it doesn't (probably android 9 or something there, don't remember)
Well, DiamondJohn has a point, in that eventually we all have to move on. But no need to go to extremes and kill everything that is not the latest and greatest, I think. Anyway, up to Hootan.

The main problem is the media files. If I copy my 250 thousands music, images, videos in my device, then it's going to scan the content of those files to retrieve the metadata. They have done a great job in the recent versions of Android by improving the media retriever performance. It can extract the metadata from almost 8 files for 1 second, in my fastest device. It is incredibly fast but I have to wait many hours for scanner to finish the job to just get the basic info about my files. What if I rename one of my root folders during that time? All again. It's a joke. The whole design and the way it is working and updating is bad and even dangerous. In some cases it's possible you even lose many of your files during updating the media db. There are many problems which I'm lazy to explain. They could scan the whole files only for the basic info, in one thread, for a very short time and then whatever they need to do in different threads later. They could make it very fast, smart, efficient and useful but they didn't.I haven't tested how far I can push it, but instead of issuing scan all media/media mounted intent, I have programmatically built a list of files myself, and then explicitly told the media scanner to scan each specific file in my list. It was pretty quick in updating the media db.
Ok, but remember to put it back, for security reasons ...
I use root explicitly to reduce the security of android by enabling super user functionality.Hmm...didn't know about that.
I had set Mount Namespace Mode to Global, but what should it be set back to? What was the default setting?
The options in Magisk are:
- Global Namespace
- Inherit Namespace
- Isolated Namespace
