Issue with ES File Explorer

    This started after the upgrade to Jelly Bean (I have a Galaxy S2 with Virgin and it's non-rooted), if I go to the external SD folder it shows that there is nothing on it (which scared the crap out of me the first time, lol) but if I go into the stock Android file explorer it sees everything on there. Tried uninstalling/reinstalling but that didn't work, any ideas? Thanks!

    I think it may require the app developer to update the app for JB.

    Just found this on the Play Store under the what's new tab for ES File Explorer.

    Are you sure you are in the correct location for the external card? On my Droid Razr HD (using es file explorer on JB) the cards are as follows:

    Internal: /sdcard or /mnt/sdcard

    External: /mnt/external1

    the SD card on the Droid Razr Maxx is listed under /mnt/sdcard-ext/

    Wowsers, that's quite a difference between the Razr MAXX and the Razr HD.

    I have not used ES file explorer but I found this using Google search see if this trick works on your galaxy S2 as well

    Thanks all, actually all your suggestions were correct, lol! By default it starts in sdcard which how it always was and I was able to see the external card in there but after the update it doesn't work anymore but if I click on favorites or go to mnt/external1 (or just go to / then navigate down) I can see it.

    I always keep ES File Explorer on "/" as the default opening location.. it's just easier for me.
