    Need some files copied from a Win or Linux machine and you don't have a USB cable or a flash card reader. If the PC has WiFi you're in luck.

    1) Install Wireless Tether for Root Users from the Android market.

    2) Run Wireless Tether and connect the PC to the android device.

    3) On the PC download & run HFS (Http File Server), it is only 600kB (works in WINE in Linux)

    4) From the HFS drop down menu add files or a folder with files to be downloaded.

    5) On the Android device use a browser to navigate to the PC's IP address (displayed in the address bar of HFS).

    6) Download the files...


    Wireless Tether.

    HFS ~ HTTP File Server


    *** Using WiFi File Explorer by itself is a simple alternative but it will not upload to the Android device with the free version.
