AndroidCtrlUI.dll Lets Devs Browse Device Files in Windows Explorer

In the not too distant past, we talked about AndroidCtrl.dll, an interesting library that can be used with various Windows-based projects to communicate with Android devices. This library is a set of tools written in C# .NET 4 that enhances the original capabilities of ADB, Fastboot, and other basic Android communication methods.

The developer of this library, the XDA Senior Member k1ll3r8e, developed a new tool based on AndroidCtrl.dll: the AndroidCtrlUI.dll. This time you can browse files in the Windows Explorer style by using ADB. It’s a convenient way of file operations, since this doesn’t require any commands to be entered by users. Everything looks exactly like with regular folder view and can be managed just by using GUI and mouse.

This library can be used with various Windows tools that use ADB to communicate with Android devices. Just like its predecessor, the project needs to be written in a .NET 4 language to work properly. K1ll3r8e provided a set of instructions to show you how to add the library and call it from the code.

You can add AndroidCtrlUI.dll to your project right now. All you need to do is visit the AndroidCtrlUI forum thread, download the file, and import it with your favorite IDE.
