Root Functionality added to the Open Source Simple Explorer

Root Functionality added to the Open Source Simple Explorer

Not too long ago, we gave praise to the open source application Simple Explorer. At that time, we noted that the app brought a great user interface and streamlined functionality. We also stated that we were left longing for root functionality. Luckily, however, this was on XDA Senior Member DF1E‘s list of features to add.

Now after some time has passed, DF1E has gone ahead and added root-level file management to Simple Explorer. Root-level delete, move, and copy functionality was added in version 1.8 (August 28), with root-level rename and creation added in 1.8.1 (September 12). Other minor tweaks, bug fixes, and optimizations have also been added throughout the revisions since our last article.

Now that Simple Explorer has a much more complete feature set, there’s little reason to not give this open source gem a try. To learn more and download the newly root-friendly goods, head over to the application thread.
