Hey developers and fellow Android fanatics. I decided I want to share an app I developed, Root Browser.

Root Browser is like the popular app, Root Explorer. You can view and manage any file with root access. You can also multi select files and batch copy, move, zip, delete, tar. A sqlite database viewer is also included (click the home icon in the title bar).

Root Browser has all the functions of Root Explorer but I am offering it here for free :D

The version included here is the same as the free version on the market which supports ads. To get it to have the same functionality as the pro version without ads all you need to do is create this file:

/system/etc/.root_browser

(don't forget the ".")

Re-open the app and voila! you have the premium features.

ROM Developers: Please feel free to include this in your ROM! This is the main reason I wanted to give you the app with the pro features. If you decide to put it in your ROM please just follow the below guidelines:

1) Do not resign the package with your own key
2) Please include the free version, not the paid version of the app
3) Create the /system/etc/.root_browser file to enable full functionality
4) If you are feeling generous let the users know where the app came from and that they can support development by getting the pro version :p

Thanks Android fam!

If you have problems or find bugs feel free to email me ([email protected])

NOTE: I would use the apk off the market as I might not update the one found here!

Same to me, no permission to create file in system's folders, not tried to delete or rename. App not ask for root privileges.....

    I don't get this bit:



    What file type? Looked in the folder and thought there would only be one but there are quite a few. So .conf maybe? God knows. Perfect otherwise, never used root explorer so can't compare will this will be my explorer app from now.

    Navigate to /system/etc, Tap the "+" button on the top right corner in the app, select "add file", input ".root_browser", press back till u exit the app, restart app...Voila!!

    Works great, however, I can't find a way to open apks like root explorer and couldn't figure it out how to mount the system in RW or RO


    Though, I've just played with the app for 5 minutes :D

    The new version should allow you to open apks and zips. The don't need a button like root explorer to mount system. When you copy, delete, move, etc. it will do that for you.
