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.

Those looking to get started should head over to the original thread. If you’re lucky enough to be rocking the HTC One X, head over to the dedicated One X Thread instead.

T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Battery Woes

I've been using a T-Mobile Galaxy S6 since the device launched with T-mobile's service. However, over this past holiday weekend I knew I would be in an area without reliable T-Mobile service. So, I opened up T-Mobile's default "Device Unlock" app , pressed unlock, and placed my AT&T SIM card in the device. Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...

Earthquake Early Warning in Your Pocket

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
