If you've rooted your Android phone, now you have access to different parts of your gadget; including inaccessible folders to users and system files which play a major role in android. One of the useful tools to access different files on the phone is Root Explorer which is a simple but very powerful file manager in root accessing to the phone for transferring and renaming files from everywhere. Moreover, accessing to cloud services such as Dropbox and Google Drive and more has been added by the developers.


Root Explorer Features

-          Access to the whole phone’s system files

-          Different tabs for the root section, the internal and external memory and quick access

-          Support for multiple cloud services such as Google accounts, and Dropbox

-          Ability to add tabs for easy access to Google Drive and Dropbox


The app has different sections and in contrast to its powerful core, it doesn’t have a complicated interface with so many options in it. Thus, the simple design makes working with it, very easy.

At first, there are two tabs, one for root access and the other for the phone’s memory, which they are customizable. At the bottom, there are refresh and tab erase options and finally the bookmark section.

By adding something to your bookmark, you can access them from the quick access section. Pressing the + key which is from the new section, will reveal several options, including, adding a new tab, Google Drive account and Dropbox account which you can quickly copy your data from these services to your phone.

In the preferences section there are options related to look and feel of the application such as, the type and arrangement of the files and tabs, show hidden files. Moreover, the important destinations are selectable from the bottom.


Create Zip/tar folder: it chooses the path for saving the compressed file created by the app. Then, after setting this option, every time you compress a file in the app, it will be stored on that location.

Archive Extract Folder: this is to set a path for extracted archives, and after setting it up, all compressed files will be extracted to that specific location.

External SD path: it is the path for the memory card. The phones which support the memory card can see that path to their memory card from here.

If you have rooted you Android device, we strongly recommend Root Explorer, so you can have easy access to everything you need, and let’s not forget the user friendly interface.
