    I did a search and couldnt find anything. What does this program actually do. I bought the paid version thinking I was going to use it all the time. However i always go into recovery and adb shell to do things I thought root explorer would do. Should I return this. thanks

  2. while we do have root, what we dont have is a full nand protection unlock allowing us to modify key partitions such as /system or /data while the phone is still booted. we still have to do everything in recovery. when nand protection is unlocked, we will be able to utilize root explorer.

    Despite /system being unwritable, Root Explorer is still a very nice file manager and only costs about $3.

    I purchased it knowing I couldn't modify /system without rebooting to recovery (and this was before unrevoked when getting back into recovery was a roll of the dice) and don't regret it.

    I use RE everyday as an alternative to Astro file manager. I just got use to using it from when I had my MOTO Droid. When we get full unlock, RE will be one of your most valuable tools.

    Yea I always use astro and re wouldnt let me do anything more than that. Now that I know about full unlock Im going to keep the version I bought already.
