Manage Your Files from Recovery with AROMA File Manager
Have you ever rebooted your device into recovery, only to find that you forgot to do some basic file management before embarking on your flashing journey? Perhaps instead you shut down your device, but would like to delete or copy some files without having to fully boot your device into the Android OS. Whatever the case, there are dozens of use-cases for being able to manage your files from recovery, and now it is possible.
XDA Recognized Developer amarullz has created AROMA File Manager, which lets users on any standard recovery manage their files in full GUI glory. You may assume that installing a recovery-based file manager would be quite complicated. However, it is quite simple. To run AROMA File Manager, all you have to do is “install” the update.zip, as you would with any other update.zip. Rather than physically installing onto your device, AROMA will instead be launched and allow you to cater to your file management needs. According to the developer:
How To Use?
Copy the zip into your sdcard, then reboot your device into recovery mode. Choose install from sdcard, then select the AROMA Filemanager ZIP. The file manager will starting, and you are ready to managing your filesystem (copy, cut, delete, make new folder, etc) while you are in recovery.

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads. Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
