Mi File Explorer Given Massive Update to v4
About a year and a half ago, we wrote about how the much lauded MIUI File Explorer was ported to other devices and given root access capabilities. Since then, XDA Senior Member HootanParsa‘s project has grown and matured in many ways. Along with changing its name to Mi File Explorer, HootanParsa’s app has been completely reworked with an entirely new codebase, rather than the ported MIUI file explorer seen at the project’s inception.
Now, the project has hit its fourth version (4.0.1, to be exact), and it offers a dramatically upgraded feature set. As of version 4, it gained a Holo-compliant user interface, along with two additional list view modes and a visual skin selector. In addition, it also gained useful network abilities such as a SMB (Windows share), SFTP, and WebDav explorer. It also added modules for various cloud services such as Box, DropBox, SugarSync, SkyDrive, Google Drive, Ubuntu One, Copy, iDrive, and much more. And in the app’s minor point revision to 4.0.1, Mi File Explorer gained the ability to search for local IPs in SMB, as well as various bug fixes and optimizations.
From the great visuals to the powerful supported operations, there’s much to love about Mi File Explorer. Head over to the original thread to get started with this great file explorer.
