How to Use Root Explorer


Root Explorer is a file manager for the Android Operating System. With Root Explorer, you can access hidden directories that are only visible to users with Root access, like the Data directory. Because of this, it can only be installed on phones that have been modified to give Root access. A phone that has Root access is often referred to as a rooted phone. If your phone is rooted, you will find Root Explorer to be a useful application for poking around the system directories.
