I've messed about with SMB1, FTP and Webdav. I can get FTP mapped in windows 11 but read only. I can get http/webdav working okay in firefox. But i'd really like to browse the phone like a network drive where I can read/write inside the file manager. Is this possible. I've checked the FAQ but i'm fairly new to this all.

You can do that but it would help if you could make your description more specific. As FTP is robust and supported natively by most OS, and was the basis for the FAQ let's use FTP for now. Please correct this if inaccurate but what I get from your description is: that you are running the MiXplorer (FTP) server on an Android device and attempting to access it across a LAN from a Windows 11 device and in Firefox or the native file explorer (or an FTP client).

If that is correct, then I would recommend configuring and testing with a dedicated FTP client such as Filezilla on the PC. Even though the Windows Explorer UI makes the experience seamless after there is a good connection, the Windows connections are notoriously difficult to reconfigure as they offer no simple interface for configuring the connection parameters and tend to attempt previous bad connections - just what you don't want when testing connections in sequence with various parameters. In addition to the syntax of the URL of the server and the port number there are other parameters in the server settings which which must match the client. Filezilla allows you to configure the connection parameters in detail and save or copy them as profiles, and provides good logging. Once the FTP access is working via Filezilla then it's much easier to configure Windows Explorer for direct access.

See sections "General Server Settings: " and "Account settings." and "Home Path" in the FAQ servers post: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/mixplorer-q-a-and-faq-user-manual.3308582/post-65157350

If you have questions along the way I (and probably others) would be glad to help in the FAQ thread (unless this becomes a bug rather than a configuration issue in which case it should come back here). As this discussion could sprawl into configuration aspects of Windows, Android, networking and MiXplorer it would be better to bring it to the FAQ as long as it seems to be a configuration issue.

Does the placeholder have an alpha channel making it transparent?

Maybe you can replace it with an opaque image, so the overwriting will not be an issue.
It is an entirely blank image (in the screenshot, I replaced it by my version). As you could see, it's being overlapped, not overlapping. I bet on a easy fix directly from the developer to make it theme-able.

Tried decompiling but smali gives no clues (as expected) even jadx java doesn't help.

As you say, it needs dev input to make it themeable

It might have been interesting to see how MiXplorer behaved after an in-line update through which permissions might have persisted as that might help determine if this is an issue with the permissions being reset in general or specifically with new version of MiXplorer but IMO it's not worth testing your way back from the newest version of MiX (yet).

Although A6 is old, it is within the range of devices which MiX tries to support. I think those additional details make an even stronger case for reporting it to the developer with the expected troubleshooting details. With that information the developer may be able to fix it or at least explain why it is that way.

I uninstalled v6.61.6, deleted application data and installed old version v6.58.5_B22090510. External SD appeared among bookmarks and MixPlorer has requested permission to write to external SD. Write access is now restored and back to normal. Sorry I can't test versions between 6.58.5 and 6.61.6.

I wasn't suggesting any extended testing, in fact I suggested somewhat the opposite.if you want this to work in the latest version of MiX then you can log it (which would only take seconds to do) and share the log, or check for permission related suggestions (any which you have not yet tried) in the FAQ. At your discretion.

Thank you for the details.
Different versions of Android from different companies act differently. That's why I've added different filters. So I can't add mimetype to the second one. Also adding */* with the 'content' scheme can make problems. I added 'vnd.android.cursor.dir/*' to the third one. If it still didn't work with the next version please let me know. Then I will add a new filter with the content scheme. Thanks again.
I can confirm it works, thanks :)

Hootan is stalking the thread and fixed the problem:
Included the drawable as "button_burger.png".
Now I can rest 🤣

If that means that the "hamburger" button is now fully customizable then I look forward to descriptions about tapping on the "hotdog" button or the "green salad" button. :D But seriously thanks for the incidental reminder that HP was lurking as they also did something for Android 6 (next post).

@66 Nuts, it seems as if you had indeed detected a regression or glitch and that the developer has made some change. MiX XDA version 6.61.7 B23032410 is now available through the in app updater and the primary item in the change log is

"Fixed external storage issue in Android 6".

BTW, if you don't want to disrupt your current XDA or Silver installation of MiX but want to quickly test something like this (in order to determine if it is worth upgrading) then you can install the MiX beta version parallel to the XDA or Silver version and see what happens in the beta without affecting the other MiX (XDA or Silver) installation. In any event the issue you reported may have been fixed.

2.- How do I re-enable the SD Card? I'm using Android 6 and I can't find a way to see it again.

@JaegerFox, Regarding external storage on Android 6 the change referred to above may also apply to you.

Hello. Although MiXplorer supports installing split APKs, its app app manager doesn't seem to allow extracting installed splits as bundles. It copies only the base.apk file. This makes the feature hardly ever useful in today's world of split apps. Can this ability be added in the future? Or am I missing something, and this is already possible?

I think I spoke too soon. Although I'm sure you can update the faq with the info, unfortunately MiX theme engine is not "reading" the customized file. I'll wait @HootanParsa to fix this to finally close this chapter. 😢

2. Since version 6.61.6 B23031310 (at least) , I have an issue where, when moving files, the file that is LISTED as being moved is a previous file, not the actual file that is moving. This seems to be a visual bug only, but it is annoying. Doubt I am the only one seeing this.
This issue seems to have been fixed in MiXplorer 6.61.7 B23032410. 👍

(EDIT: Spoke too soon, still aeeing that iasue)

Hello. I want to ask about autotasks. I was using x-plore to copy my files from internal storage to sd card automatically. But it does not have move or replace function. Just copy. So i want to use mix autotasks but there is one problem. For example: i want to move all files from my twitter folder to other folder. I can't say "move all files from this directory" only i can move whole folder to destination. But i want to move folder contents not whole folder. I need move files from this folder to that folder. I don't want to select which files. Just all files which i downloaded to source folder.

Re-installed just now (I bought solid explorer more time ago, but I want test mix).
Isn't simple for me to edit bookmarks.
Eh, WhatsApp still ask for "use this folder".
Also, cannot found a way to make similar social folder (and if I remove I need to reset bookmark from scratch).

Thanks in advance for help.

I also noticed split apk problem and consider it important ,at least for us who keep a copy of EACH installed APK.
"User App" shows the size only of main apk and copies just that one, not a bundle.

Is it me or MiXplorer_v6.61.7-API29_B23032420 is wrong with APKs in "App" content? Detailed view cannot change to Compact,cannot change sort by Name to by Size...was OK in .6.
Edit: fixed when I closed the tab and created another one . Just Exit from Mix didn't help.

Are XDA notifications working for this thread for you all ? I thought it was awfully quiet and just came to find three or four pages of posts I hadn't seen...
I couldn't tell you, sorry - I have 7 threads/subforums that I open 3-4 times/day, so I've never used those bookmark notifications 🤷‍♀️

Is music progress bar in notification added or not ? Mystery .... I do not see it in LineageOS .

I hope it's feasible to add new 4th item "Playing playlist " when one or more music files are selected and "Add to" clicked, so that those files are added to already playing playlist.
(Like, if 2 songs play to just add 3rd in the temporary no-name playlist or to a named one).

    @HootanParsa Could you please add an option to the context menu for executing a shell script, when one is selected?

    This was a feature in Root Explorer, that was very convenient.

    Actually that's not entirely correct as F-Droid will replace the author's key with their own. They use the same key for each and every app in the repo. If you install any app from their repo, and then download an update directly from the original source, Android will refuse to update and you would need to reinstall the app.

    MiX would have the developer's key and not F-Droid's. F-Droid cannot build MiX, it is not open source and the code is not available. The person setting up the repository also cannot build it for the same reason.

    The ( terrible, awful ) idea was that someone ( NOT F-Droid themselves, but the person you quote ) wanted to set up a repository mirroring the developer's drive, copying the builds there ( illegally, since this is proprietary software with a license ) to distribute them.

    Edit : And you've just proven one of my points. People will be confused and misled about this whole idea, just as you have. Let it die, stop.

    How to rename to:
    In Name mode (i.e. not Regex, etc), use %A%N as the name, and %01d in Advanced settings > Incremental number format. Preview available from the drop-down menu next to the name field.

    Edit: mind the space at the beginning of the default ' (%...d)' format. %01d is equivalent to %d. The 0 enables 0-padding. The digit(s) after the 0 specifies the minimum length of the resulting increment, padding it with zeros where necessary. Feel free to add any alphanumeric or punctuation characters (except /:\$% and maybe more) before % and after d, e.g. 'Picture %03d — '.
    Whats the difference between the Mixplorer APKs WITH and WITHOUT the pattern "API29" in package file name?
    The file with "API29" in its name declares itself as using version 29 of the Android API. Sometimes an app that claims it is targetting an older version of the API is allowed to do something that used to be allowed but is no longer allowed.

    Use the file that does not mention API. If you have a problem, like being unable to write to an external SD-card, you can try the other version. Or ask here and see if anyone thinks it will help.

    As mentioned, the F-Droid server would distribute the very same APKs that are hosted by Hootan on Google Drive, untouched.

    Which you'll be easily able to verify, by the way : for sure you already have MiX installed, from the same APKs I'm talking about, i.e. digitally signed by Hootan, which means your device, by secure design, will refuse to install an update that does not carry the same digital signature.

    Meanwhile if I maliciously modify the APK, then the signature will be modified as well.

    For more info : https://source.android.com/docs/security/features/apksigning

If you install any app from their repo, and then download an update directly from the original source, Android will refuse to update and you would need to reinstall the app.

    Yes, so I can provide users with a feature : automated updates.
    Just like building custom ROMs including proprietary manufacturer blobs, to provide users with system updates beyond official support.
    Just like modding apps containing too many ads/paywalls/dark patterns, to provide users with a better usage experience.
    All of those things may not be legal, but they are legit.
    And we're doing this voluntarily.

    This discussion doesn't look productive though, so I'm going to stop talking for now.
    I'll be be back once I'll be able to deliver what I promised, and eventually then read whatever nonsense (or surprisingly constructive) reply you'll send, if any.

    Have a nice day !
    It is perfectly possible to get instant updates for MiXplorer (or any other app for that matter) by using Obtainium! It can update your apps from the official (or any other) source directly, such as GitHub/Gitlab/custom F-droid repo's/any HTML page etc.

    It will automatically check all available .apks from the configured source and look for the newest version for your architecture. If there is a newer version it will let you know and can update the app. You can even search for any app inside Obtainium and it will automatically search GitHub and then let you pick the right one from a dropdown with results. You only have to do this once per app and then you are set for life.

    Obtainium is much faster as you get updates directly from the source and you don't have to wait for e.g. F-droid to sign and put the new version in the repository. Nowadays my updates almost exclusively come from Obtainium and not from Playstore or repo's that always lag behind.

    More importantly it is much more secure, and not just because of instantaneous updates. If a third party repo that is distributing multiple self-signed apps gets compromised, so will each one of those apps on your phone, generally giving much wider system access and permissions.

    The biggest problem with the F-droid repository is that developers' keys get removed and replaced with F-droid's own key. Thus all apps get signed with the same key. If this ever gets compromised than each single one of the F-droid apps will be. This makes it very attractive for hackers to target such a repository, as they can push updates to millions of users all with the same key.

    Downloading from the source avoids this problem as each app will be signed with the developers' own keys, thus even if a malicious actor compromises the source, they would still need the developers' own key or Android will block it. If they only have the key, not control over source, no problem either. There's no single point of failure.

    Going after a single developer is much less lucrative, and also harder, because their IP-adress is not publicly linked to the repository (unless self-hosting). Signing happens on a completely different private system, and only the .apk, not the key can be found at the source. In case of F-droid, hackers already know pretty much where they need to penetrate, simply by resolving the URL. The signing happens automatically and continuously on their server as new versions come out.

    The app is pretty new, but gaining traction and updates very regularly with new features coming in lightning speed. I haven't had a single app that I couldn't get to work with Obtainium. The only downside is that you'll have to remove any app installed from the F-droid repository and then reinstall with the .apk from the source, as they will have a different key. Removing and reinstalling can be done through Obtainium though.

    Upside of using source apk instead of Google Playstore version is that there are no automatically included Google Firebase and other trackers added in without the dev choosing to put it in their build.

    Most apps can be found on Github/Gitlab and will be set-up in a few seconds due to their seamless integration(set-up a personal acces token for faster search results). If you're too lazy to confirm / look-up the source for each of your apps you could even import a backup from a user that has already configured all sources (optionally delete any apps from Obtainium that you don't have, and add-in any missing apps).

    Of course you can also just add MiXplorer and leave it at that!
