ADB FileExplorer Frees You from ADB Tedium

ADB is an essential part of the Android experience. It’s used for everything from pushing files to a device’s SD card to flashing a custom recovery. However, one of its greatest annoyances (or training methods depending on whom you ask) is having to type commands manually into a terminal. XDA Forum Member DareT0Be has taken some of redundancy out of using ADB with his latest application ADB FileExplorer.

The basic premise is simple. It allows users to browse their devices file system through an easy to use GUI. Intuitive and simple, it features:

– pull files from the phone to the local filesystem
– push files to the phones filesystem
– connect a ADB-over-TCP enabled Android device
– browse trough the phones filesystem
– deleting files on the phone

Having used the application, I can honestly say that it does the job it was intended to do. All I had to do was setup ADB, run the application’s .jar file, and presto: I could browse the files on my connected Android device. So what are you waiting on? Head on over to the original thread and give this a go. As always, make sure you read the OP carefully and ensure that your system does have the requisite Java Runtime Environment installed.

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5.
