    Is there a way to get the same access to all of the files as Root Explorer gives you on the PC?

    My phone is rooted and I have Root Explorer. What I was asking was is there an app or program that I can download on my PC that will give me the same access. Because when linking via the USB it does no list the same files. Only what is on the SD Card is what it looks like to me. The reason I want to do this is because I was attempting to change the PowerOn.snd file. I created a file and tried to paste the .wav file into it and it wouldn't work. What am I doing wrong?

    Not exactly. There is no file explorer on a PC that will let you mount the system partition on an android phone and browse it as if it were just another disk drive. However, if you have the Android SDK installed, you can use the adb shell to manipulate system files and folders.

    what he is saying is he wants to be able to view all the files from via usb on his computer but u dont need to do all that just to change the power on sound just rename the old one to PowerOn1 and then copy and move the new one to that location like this.
