Limited Doesn't work with external sd card on even on a rooted device.

Bapi Ghosh

Not working Is this not compatible with cm11 kitkat 4.4.4? Every time it says 'unfortunately file manager has stopped working'.

Pintso Namgyal

Didn't work. Like O.P has mentioned, didn't work.

Can't do almost everything Don't try to create shortcuts or do other things, this app has very limited functionality. But it comes with lots of annoying ads. Enjoy!

Jaan Pereira

Good app Works well to uninstall root apps.

Csaba Levente

Crashing The app is crashing when I try to copy a file in system folder. Even if I modify permissions and grant us rights. I use a rooted 4.4.2 smartphone.

mohamad kibaly

good it can explore root file but cant open them

Brian Bates

Shows nothing on SD card. When I launch Root File Manager it loads the SD card but says there is nothing there.

devin thomas

Below average Pros: Nice UI. Cons: Pressing back goes to beginning of prior directory, instead of remembering prior scroll position. Renaming files seems to delete them. Hidden files option is backwards, when view hidden files is enabled, they're hidden.

Ron Michel

I think I know bug but no room here to tell you To much inexperience here. Go to folder, copy one folder there go to paste but you now must navigate bqck, but no it cant paste there as there is no way to name it as a copy, while copied you may not make a new folder. While working on a project on will copy the work and paste a copy to run, so copy paste should assume the destination to be the same. Wow is all I can say 0 fn stars

Galaxy S3 rooted 4.1.2 Rooted phone mostly to stop camera sound. This app says it renames or moves the file but it didn't. Worthless if it can't even do that.

Alea Edwards

Worked fine at first Now when i open the app nothing shows. Just the top buttons but none of my files show. Uninstalling

Shawn Rodgers

Not rooted but still useful Allows me to delete files that would otherwise be inaccessible. Kudos!

Colin Leitner

Oops. Looks like Astro File Manager can do root folders. Nevermind! However, this does have a root oriented approach to file managing. And nice ui.

Joseph Brandon Harmon

This application looks like it works great, but it doesnt actually do anything. It looks like it copies and changes permissions on files, but when you go back and look, the file hasnt been moved or permissions changed.

Pavol Michalec

Works! I thought no app would work, I tried at least 5, thank you!

Abdul Qudduus Mow

Strongest Root File Deletion I tried at least 4 apps before this one before I could get rid of that evil boot audio file. Thank you.

Warlock 5822

Doesn't work I'm currently using a HTC one and trying to cut or copy apps won't move them at all, it says it has copied but nothing has acctually happened :/

Andrew Walker

Cant delete file Installed to delete power on.ogg file boot up sound won't delete or rename dispite giving root access

Wien Smit

works perfectly is just does what it is supposed to edit system files and all!

javier cappo

Excellent Replaces stock file manager. Moving files like on a PC.

Jeremy Carpenter

Wow Did absolutely nothing. Nothing came up but icons that when pressed did nothing, then froze. Cool app bro.

Lauren Joanna

Doesn't work Say's 'file deleted' but the file stays. It doesn't do anything. Waste of time.

Andy Hillman

Hands down waste of time Not recommend will not copy to root file system. Absolute joke

Vishal Sharma

Lite and powerful Nice. Will give five stars if multiple files selection is added! Please do so.

Константин Унижук

не меняет владельца Can not change ownership

Sergei Miroshnikov

Cannot handle file permissions e.g. Fails to replace Whatsapp database file when app is disabled/ removed. Phone rooted.

Bill Dixon

Crash I'm a super user (rooted) and this crashes every time I try to rename a host file.

Kiera Todd

Works excellently and helped me move (most of) my music, but lacks one integral feature There's no search function, or even a filter for certain types of files. I had to use other apps to search around for which songs were where before using this one to move them. Very confusing.

Skeptik Cal

This app works with my rooted phone (samsung s3, i9300) in this way- instead of renaming files, it deletes them. But I had to find this out first: the Mount RO/RW button is gone from the older versions and the app cannot do anything except browse without this feature. I spent hours trying to get this thing to work with no success, until... I came across a forum that mentioned this app: Mount /system RO/RW [ROOT] SuperThomasLab The above app fills in for the useless Root File Manager read only ability and makes it fully functioning with flaws (delete instead of rename for example).However, it took another few wasted hours of reading! Why couldn't the developer mention this, so a user could waste no time in getting to work??? 1 star for this absolutely unnecessary stupidity of losing the "Mount RO/RW function since 2011, and to add insult to injury, the negligence of not posting the updated information here for the hapless user! You are causing people to waste a lot of unnecessary time for no reason! Note: It quasi-works in R/W mode, only when partnered with the above app- WHO KNEW???

No multi file select, no menu, no good No help, no website\documentation, no way to determine how to sort.

adham amer

Root Simply clumzy people does know nothing about root

simenesky simenesky

Love It I just "love" people who give one star to this app and dont understand what the f..k root is !!! GRAIT APP !!! And for those people... first ROOT your phone then you will be able to work properly with this app.

Ahmed Afzal

Does not works in root folders i am unable to copy any filed in root directory

charlie thomas

Does not work Cannot rename poweron.ogg so I paid the £3 for Root Explorer which worked fine

Mojo Modjeski

Will not delete Despite being granted SU permission, would not delete files in System folder.

DiKshxieet Das

Great Finally I got it!!!! ????

Bagus Prehan

not good app. I can't copy any files in folder root.

Dennis Santiago

Works perfectly Two thumbs up...

Kieran Moran

This app does what it says on the tin. I am very happy. I was able to find the charging pics with this puppy.

Ande P

Looks great to set permissions on .thumbnail file But system or hidden files don't show and there's no system setup to turn it on... What gives ?

Dawn Brown

No multi file select, no menu, no good Horrible UI! No help, no website\documentation, no way to determine how to sort.

Allay™ Dsouza

Doesn't even have a search bar! Wow!


Great Way Find Root And Normal Files. Its Really Easy To Find Files In The Search.

Suresh Kumar

Hated 1 star is enough for it

GREAT JOB! Great job developer/s! If you would please add an option to change the folder color with a color wheel type feature I'll rate 5★z next time. Thank you

Josh Baller

Not functional beyond viewing files I'm rooted and can see my root files easily- but it patently refuses to rename or delete files. I say to rename or delete it, the app says "the file has been renamed/deleted", but it hasn't.

Cameron Lamont

Won't delete files Am unable to delete files even though it says that the file has been deleted

Karl Jones

Not working This application is no longer working. It shows no files in any folder but the home folder.

GABBAR reLoaded

Great Finally I got it!!!! ????
