That's the simplest for PC access: you download directly from the box, or upload directly from PC, no intermediate steps required.
However it also supports Cloud Storage services like Dropbox and Gdrive if you already have files there
X-plore represent! Seriously, it is SO good. FTP sharing, Wifi sharing, root access, inbuilt viewers, dual pane tree-like structure view. It has literally everything you can ask for. Lonelycatgames FTW.
ES File Explorer is crap.I installed X-plore and it works really well transferring stuff from drives
X-plore File Manager
Old school split screen saves me lots of time when constantly transferring files to different locations. It may look ugly as shit compared to others but the features are top notch.
I had the exact same problem as you, and I've tried various SSH servers on Android and it all didn't work because apparently my rooted Android tablet shuts down servers running in background when it goes sleeping. So what I went with instead was the reverse solution: Install X-plore File Manager on your phone and mount SSH directory on your PC, then use it to transfer files. Works perfectly for me and doesn't require any additional actions (SSH server on my PC is always running).
Have you guys tried X-plore File Manager? Very stable lots of features.
Joey for Reddit it is 100% free and works great!
There are a lot of file explorers and I'm not here to say any one in particular is the best, but I'm quite fond of X-plore File Manager. It has opening and collapsing folders quite like the side bar on windows explorer and dual panes for easy file reorganising.
This has worked better for me than ES File Explorer:
Also has DropBox, Google Drive and OneDrive support.
About 2 weeks ago I tried X-plore File Manager and I love it. I uninstalled the crappy ES. After using ES for months, this feels so natural and easy.
I will try Solid Explorer when it eventually comes out but for now I'm happy.
I use X-plore.
I usually like good looking apps, and neat animations, but what I like more is when an app is small, efficient, and does a lot of things (well) at the same time.
I don't know what features other file managers offer currently, since I use X-plore exclusively since a few years. But X-plore has everything I need.
I've used them all. Also used to use ES File Explorer before they were bought out and went malware. I much prefer X-Plore File Manager. Two pane, great dark theme, built in previews for media, can be used fully with Android TV remote, plus many more features. It has awesome connectivity options, I use it most often to connect/explore Windows shared folders.
X-plore is beyond awesome. Been using it for years now and ironically enough have avoided using ES despite a lot of the recognition it gets among the Android community and developers.
I have Solid Explorer installed like many others have suggested as well; however, I find X-plore to be my go-to. It's not the flashiest app, but it's free (with some IAPs), has a lot of functionality and works well.
It is, in my personal (and honest) opinion one of the best file managers. I've been using it for 5.5 years and cannot see myself moving to another one ever.
But don't use ES File Explorer mentioned in that article. It developed a bad rep over the years. Use X-plore instead ([link]).
Both MiXplorer and X-plore File Manager [both are free] will allow you to do that.
I don't believe there is a direct way of doing this in Android if the app you desire hasn't specified it under "Open by default / Supported links". Perhaps there is a way using the Tasker app.
For example when clicking on an .opml file:
Open with dialogue box lists suitable programs
OR click OPEN AS which brings up the following dialogue box:
If you click on OPEN WITH it will list all your apps to choose from even if they don't make any sense.
You can select REMEMBER to make the association permanent.
will bring up the following dialogue box:
If you click on "/" it will list all your apps to choose from even if they don't make any sense.
You can select ALWAYS or JUST ONCE
If its gone from the play store and you still have your 2xl then use Xplore to copy the game (copy creates an apk) and then run the apk on your 3xl to install it
If the game needs any files in the Android\obb directory then you will need to manually copy these over.
I had to do this when they deleted some games I had on my Shield TV
X-Plore File Manager + VLC. It's not pretty but it works reliably with no skipping, stuttering, etc.
I've tried MiXPlorer, ES, Solid, etc and X-Plore's been the only one that works every time.
Here's what I did:
Upload the APK to Google Drive. Download X-Plore. On the Shield, go into Settings > Device Preferences > Security > Install from unknown sources > make sure X-Plore is selected.
Go back to X-Plore and find the APK hooked in through Google Drive and click on it and it will install.
First read up on it - [link]
If you can't access it, whichever app you are using might need storage permissions to see the contents. For file browsing/management I use X-plore File Manager.
just rename "apk" to "zip" and anything can extract it.
I use X-Plore file manager [link]
Which has a function to export an installed app to apk, and it's also the best damn file manager on android haha
When connected open window explorer it should be listed there by your phones name. Mine shows as Moto6. Won't work, give Xplorer a try; I find it very useful Link
I've used it since the days of Symbian s60. Always was and still is the best. Even after using (and paying for) Solid and also giving Mixplorer a good long try.
X-plore is just simple, has everything you need and is free.
You'll probably have to get a 3rd party file-management app that lets you use 'Photos' share function, but then only copies the file to anothr folder on your phone.
The one I use is here -- [link]
I can copy anything to any folder I want with that.
I can't use any other file manager after getting used to old school split screen. Highly recommended if you are constantly moving files around. Don't let the ugly UI fool you. It looks good in dark mode.
you'd need a file manager that provides an option to make a shortuct to a file. Xplore has that, maybe others do too.
after having that, set the touch action to open shortcut and select the file manager shortcut.
My pleasure - for your info both MiXplorer and X-plore File Manager stable versions now handle one drive properly.
>I'll have to copy it onto a USB to view it
I use X-plore on my MiBox. It has a native AndroidTV version, so you can install it from the store directly on the box. Once launched, navigate to "WiFi Server" option, and turn that on. Note the IP:port. Enter that on your laptop/desktop browser of choice, you now you can navigate, view, download, upload, and even modify the files on your AndroidTV right from your PC
I use X-plore from Google Play. You can install it directly on any Android Box that has Google Play Store. There is a native AndroidTV version too on the store (for MiBox, Shield, etc)
In the app, which is a file manager, start the "Wifi Server". It will tell you the address to connect to.
On your PC on the same network, open the browser and connect to that address. You can now upload files to the box, or download logs.
There are many other file managers with remote server capabilities. I use this one cause it was the first to offer native AndroidTV support
I bought Solid Explorer before but currently use X-Plore, which is, IMHO, the best file manager out there. With tons of features, I really love it. You can even start a wifi server so that you can drop files on the /sdcard using http address (like [link]) and you don't need to connect the device to the PC to transfer files or use wifi adb.
If you donate 3 or more beers (about $4.05), all the advanced features are enabled in X-Plore. Link: [link]
Salut. Nu știm despre ce telefon, ce sistem de operare e vorba. O să presupun mai jos că Android...
Just use X-plore. A great file explorer BTW.
It has App Manager. You can use it to easily extract apks and also use it to transfer them to shield device. When you start it on Shield device it will verify your license.
The two best ways to access the file system is either through the X-Plore app (far superior to ES File IMO) or via FTP . This is the best FTP method - [link]
If you keep everything on the NAS/FIle server, then you can setup the FTP on that and move directly. I have that with my Synology to the Shield.
My go-to lan transfer app is x-plorer. Only works from the phone but it can connect to any shared drive on any pc and copy as many files either way as you select.
I prefer X-plore to Cabinet, as it supports network file stores and ssh in-app, also it's free (like Cabinet)...
The UI needs some work though.
I don't know what exactly you're looking for but I think this app can help you [link]
I've just tested transfers between clouds that I already have access.
PS It supports a good amount cloud storage services access inapp
I've been using X-Plore File Manager for pretty much as long as I've been using Android (I switched from Symbian late), but don't see it mentioned here. Do any of these recommended alternatives have any practical advantages over it (ignoring the aesthetics, which I really don't care about)?
Hey Sorry youre having trouble. It can be a pita on Android. I can’t remember how up to date the help menu is but do this.
Email it to yourself and then follow these instructions:
To load the file:
On iOS: click the file in the email, click the arrow looking thing top right, in the context menu that pops up click "copy to GAMEYE"
On Android: click the file, say "open in GAMEYE"
If you are on Samsung, Xiamo or just having problems in general, you have to do some bullshit:
Download Xplore app: [link]
Go to android settings - app settings - gameye - click storage option. Do the same if there is one for Xplore
Download the file from the email
Navigate to file in Xplore app, click to open, open in GAMEYE
The storage options are really important if youre having to use the samsung method. Lemme know
Saw a file explorer mentioned by Charlee. Downloaded it and it's awesome.
If you're looking for a good explorer app this one is really good.
I don't think you can even get it off the play store anymore. Switch over to X-plore File Manager, it's better anyways. The developer of X-plore has been around forever , building Symbian apps before Android. X-Plore supports everything under the sun and the two pane paradigm makes it much easier to copy/move between folders.
X-plorer File Manager has a two pane view that makes browsing multiple folders and copy operations really easy, integrates with cloud services, SSH/SCP, and has a built in file sharing server with a web-based GUI. Also supports root operations if you have that.
Plus, it’s free with optional donation.
i love x-plore [link]
i use it on the phone and in dex too. is a little ugly maybe, but has all the functionality that i need, and the dual panel is a plus.
i'd suggest formatting that usb to be exfat or ntfs (depending on your device ) from a pc , and or try a different file explorer . i use and recommend x-plore [link]
but more likely you have that usb formatted wrong
what android box are you using ?
But you need an account at nexus mods, also use XPLORE to extract the zip files
It's an explorer style file manager
I have the app x-plore file manager. If all your music albums are in a parent folder you can use this app to hide that folder and it will remove them from your gallery app. So far the music folders I have hidden still show up in my music playing apps.
Edit: my music files still show up in third party music apps such as black player, but will be removed from LGs music player.
I've been using it since the days of Nokia symbian
If not working I have RAR, used 1 time
I use the free double-pane Android File manager: X-plore File Manager
(free Cloud Storage access: Google Drive, Dropbox etc.)
It also has a Disk Map view that I find very useful.
Ok those are restore points. Here’s some instructions for both phone types!
X-plore has a "wifi share" function, and u can manage all your files via Browser from a PC. its like an online file explorer to your phone. it support drag&drop, and if u like it and buy the full version (3beer donation in app) u get the full function and u can create/manage every folder on your phone or the inserted SD-card.
In free version u can try it, only limitation, u only able to manage some folders and not all, but this is more than enough to try it if u like it or not.
After i tired is many apps, this was one the only that can handle internal and external storage too, so im just bought it. since there im not even plugged my phone into pc via usb cable
You need to sideload its APK: [link]
Since Puffin TV doesn't allow download APK on Android TV anymore, you can download this APK to your phone and use a cloud drive as an intermediary to send it over to your box:
Install X-plore on both your phone and Mi Box S ([link]).
Setup a "Web storage" in X-plore for your cloud drive (Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, Box, etc.) on phone and Mi Box S.
Use X-plore to upload Hulu APK from your phone to this "Web storage", and then download it to Mi Box S.
Finally, sideload this APK with X-plore on Mi Box S.
Get the app X-Plore.
You can make folders and place your files where you need to
And use VLC for playback.
Here try these instructions
To load the file:
On iOS: click the file in the email, click the arrow looking thing top right, in the context menu that pops up click "copy to GAMEYE"
On Android: click the file, say "open in GAMEYE"
X-Plore File Manager can do it too. It can change name, extension, case of file name, move files to sub-folders and use various templates to build new file name. Not to mention a ton of other features. Still my favorite file manager for mobile platforms since 2008 (used it on my Nokia 7310 Supernova).
You could use X-plore, it's a file manager that supports ftp and previews images.You can also click on the files and swipe through the images like a gallery app.It's the only file manager I use, hope you like it!
I use X-plore and Google Drive (from within X-plore) to download files. That's free. There are other ways to download files as well in X-plore, some free, some paid. Wifi sharing, FTP, SSH, etc.
Edit: Here, you can read about the features in the app description: [link]
Everything is possible but it's a long route you have to take.
First instal Xplorer (open it and give permissions) > Then when viewing the picture in whatsapp, choose options > share to > find an xplorer shortcut that says "copy to.." and copy it to any place on your storage.
Here try these instructions for now. Cloud sync coming with the website!
It actually is in the Download folder but it's hidden in a way such that even if you use the "show hidden files" option it still won't show up. So what you need to do is download this file manager and then go to the downloads folder, you'll find the files and you can touch and hold to delete.
I also save mine to Google Drive but open them with X-Plore. I also have the Aptoide Store installed and they have most of the apps I want anyway.
Some of this will already be in the help menu but itll be completely in the help menu in the next releases.
Here’s a copy paste
I have not - I use the free double-pane Android File manager: X-plore File Manager (free Cloud Storage access: Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive all work) to manually keep files in sync.
I use X-Plore from the store and then dump the APK's into my Google drive and load them from there using X-Plore. I don't do this on a TV, but it should work no problem.
What i do is use X-plore on Phone , Filezilla on PC. and forget the cable
And setup basic FTP Connection. I do notice that some files cant be copied to and from the device. ex some Gcam Portrait Photos, you can only copy the processed one. even you copy the whole folder.
What i did at first was to copy all on SD Card or Flash Drive
there is plenty of file manager apps on the shields Store . (its limited cause it only shows native android TV apps .
Is what i recommend
Also if you just enable smbv1 in windows 10 , you can access though network from pc
This entire app is a feature in my favourite file manager: X-Plore
The file manager itself is extremely useful and powerful. I'm using it since the old Nokia Symbian days... ☺️
X-plore has worked well for me. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lonelycatgames.Xplore&hl=en_US
There’s a hidden folder called “.kodi” in there. You may have to set your file explorer to show hidden items. I use X-plore file manager to do it as it has a nice dual-pane layout X-plore on Play Store
Usually when that happens you can run it through file manager, for example:
It is more convenient through app launcher though, yes.
Your connection isn't fast enough for the YouTube app to allow you to stream in 4k. The official app does not let you decide the playback quality, it decides based on connection speed.
Sideload the app called Smart YouTube TV, which allows you to force any resolution you want regardless of connection speed. Even then, not every Youtube video is shot in 4k, so you have to search Youtube specifically for videos offered in 4k.
Or buy a blu-ray player (Xbox One S) and Planet Earth II 4k. Or use X-plore File Manager to play a 4k video file from your Google Drive if your TV supports the format.
edit: nvm, I see it's a Samsung. No go on installing those apps. GG. Get a blu-ray player or upgrade your connection speed via your ISP.
I also do this with X-plore. Or if I've already downloaded something on my phone, use the wifi file server feature to transfer files over wifi.
For OP or anyone else who wants to give it a try: X-plore.
I've tried most of the file managers, including Solid Explorer classic and thr new material versions. (paid for it too). Mixplorer is great but I eventually just went back to X-plore for ease of use.
This method works for Might and Magic Clash of Heroes on android and I think it will probably work for most android games.
Use any file manager (I recommend X-plore for reasons explained below) to go to internal storage of your phone (called /sdcard)
Then go to Android then data.
Inside, you'll find a large list of folders with names like com.android.blah blah. These are all the various apps on your phone and each folder contains the data for that app. The weird names are called package names, sort of serial IDs for the apps. No two apps are allowed to have the same ID so they are made to read like website addresses in reverse.
You want to find the folder with the package name for your app and for that you need to know the package name for your app. The easiest way is to use X-plore's app manager. It lists all the apps on your phone with their regular name as well as package name.
Now that you've found the correct folder in /sdcard/Android/data (for Might and Magic Clash of Heroes, the folder was called com.ubisoft.mightandmagic.clashofheroes), copy the entire folder to wherever you want to back it up. It should contain your save files and other stuff. Restore this folder to /sdcard/Android/data and your saves/profiles should hopefully be exactly as they were at the time of backup.
To confirm that this method works for your game, install the game onto a new phone and restore the folder to /sdcard/Android/data. If it doesn't work, sometimes it helps to make a fresh install of the game, run it once, maybe play a little and save a game (so the game makes the correct folders and all). Then quit the game, delete the save folder and in its place copy the one you've backed up.
Try using a file manager like X-plore. I personally found this better than the other file managers people like to recommend. X-plore also has a Disk map button, which will show you exactly where it is being used.
A much easier way to sideload in my opinion: Download the APKs on a computer and put them on Google Drive. Then mount your Google Drive in a file manager like Xplore ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lonelycatgames.Xplore ) and access the APKs.
Another way is to use the file transfer option in TeamViewer.
I started dabbling with this myself as i wanted to get a decent experience with PUBG Mobile, however with no spare time (kid, family, life) available I've given up as i don't have time for the pixel-mapping required to do this.
However it seems that I've gotten a bit further than you, my problem was that when opening the file I couldn't find the button mapper-app in the application list to open it with.
It came down to using the right filemanager for this namely Xplore Filemanager ugly as hell but does the job.
If you are on a 4k tv (if it doesn't do it's own scaling ofc), trying to get pubg to work and get a working config please get back to me :)
PS. Remember to backup the original keymapping file if you f something up.
Try x-plore it is the one I have been using for the past 3 years, it even has Google drive and 10 other cloud services, and FTP if u need [link]
That's what I've been rocking. I paid to unlock the file server features. I've never tried the other suggestion (solid explorer) so I don't know how it compares.
Not quite certain what you mean - I can navigate down through my folder hierarchy on Dropbox via Gom Audio and download any song I want.
I also at times like you suggest use a file manager(X-plore File Manager to play / download songs from Dropbox.
It's an Android, right? You can install different programs on there, see if you can find one that isn't crap. A quick search suggests X-plore File Manager.
You can also use an On The Go cable to connect your Vita directly to your phone, unless you're on a really old Android release.
My current favorite file browser app
It makes organisation so easy, and has a file / folder size visualization feature, and support for browsing network drives and cloud storage.
Please take a look at it and consider copying some of those features, such as adding a way to browse faster between folders and quickly jumping between multiple folders
OK, so I looked over the code and there are multiple things that could be happening here. The best way for me to diagnose it would be for you to enter in some orders with these addresses and then make a backup file and send it to me. Just go to Settings > Manage data > Generate database backup file. And then find that file using a file browser (I use X-Plore) and email it to me at . Then I'll be able to restore the backup and see things how you see them.
just about any file program has FTP built-in. the popular one is ES-Explorer but i've heard they sold out to chinese hackers, so personally i use X-Plore file manager and it does everything i need it to, including FTP.
I would recommend X-plore file manager any day of the week & twice on Sunday:
Don't have a mac but I tend to use X-plore and a browser to transfer stuff to and from the phone over wifi.
May need a one time donation to do video though. If you don't like that then look around the play store some, there's bound to be something else that does the same thing for free.
I'm on stock ROM and DiskUsage shows the disc map to the whole internal space, I think.
Anyhow, just figure out what folder takes the most space then use a file manager..
Total Commander or ES explorer..
I use this one, it has that function as you can see from this screenshot.. The app itself it's kinda ugly but once you get used to it you realize it's pretty powerful.
I have been using this file explorer for 5 months now and never looked back.
X-plore has dual pane UI, works with the cloud (dropbox, box...) and it's free, but I have donated, to support the developer's work.
I have been having this issue and thought it was related to doing some tests I was doing with the echo wizard cleanup tool.
I was able to boot again after using a file manager to delete
File will be in your kodi userdata/database/ folder. If you do not have a file manager be aware you will need to allow viewing hidden files before you can navigate to this directory. The directory is located at something like...
I use X-Plore file manager, I just find it easier to use with a remote [link]
Did you try a different browser?
Edit: well sheeeit I just got back to my comp and tried it out on a few and I get the same. I wonder if it's an Android snougat problem as I haven't used it in a little while, but did use it a lot previously.
Here's a decent workaround though: X-Plore File Manager has an excellent web based file manager (called WiFi Server), you can even go into the backup dir and have it zip it up on the fly by choosing 'Download as zip'
X-Plore file manager has lots of options for free-- there's only a small few that you'd need to unlock for $4 (iirc)
It, along with ES are easily the most feature packed file managers, if you need a power tool to do the job.
Works fine, i've got one of these, just make sure your flash drive is formatted FAT32 and you'll be fine.
You will need a good file exporer program to run the copies though. (I like X-Plore but feel free to snag the one that works for you)
I love it for it's old school UI.
Packed full with features. Just buy him a beer! =)
su, It should be root/su
Oh, and in the settings for xplore be sure to show hidden files is on
I was looking for a solution to a related problem and came across this.
I was able to change the permission with x-plore file manager: [link]
Selecting the folder, scroll down on the right to "configuration", then root access > superuser + mount writable
May be worth a try if you haven't found a solution yet.
X-plore File Manager - It's a free dual-pane file manager that is ad-free and it has alot of features.
IMO it's the best file manager.
I can't say, that no one else knows about, but there is two apps, that are much less popular, than they should be:
Clever functions, lean and not so bloated, like the others, single-guy developer. I have yet to find a feature I am missing, very good, simple media-players coming with it. Commercial, but very affordable.
It's like Tasker, but with the better user-interface (create your flows in a graphical editor as flow-charts). And the best: It is compatible to Tasker Plugins. Premium version is also commercial (though, it seems I linked the free one, did not see the key, so it may have gone free altogether).
X-plore seems like a nice manager, I've been using it for a couple of days.
My default is Solid Explorer (paid), it's a nice app but I can't honestly point any particular feature it would stand out of the crowd. I've tried the alpha and it's nice but buggy.
If you don't like ES, I much prefer Xplore. It has a nice dual-pane view which I love for copying files between folders. Uses the LAN server same as ES.
I was actually going to ask the same thing, I didn't realise it was that easy. Just had to type in my username and password and voila! All my files!

Steps from user
Hoops I jumped:
Download backup first. Run it with only the top selection (user apps). Restart Kodi. Enable all of the new plugins. This gives you the repo for PlexKodiConnect, get that. Let that scan. Run backup again and restore everything OP says. Restart Kodi. Go into the options of PlexKodiConnect,Change skin to modded one. Cross fingers.
Save Remote path to this (SD card/download/Backup) in Backup settings.
Restore from Back up.
- Restart Plex Live TV app.
- Hit the Plex Live TV Button and enjoy :)
X-plore works great has support for Google Drive, and Dropbox and is easy to navigate with a remote.
x-plore file manager is my favorite
Nothing beats X-Plore for me.
Xplore is probably the best option: [link]
I wouldn't call it super user friendly, but it works.
I've been using X-Plore file manager since Symbian. The UI is just unbeatable for me.
I like x-plore [link]
I'll list some of my favorites.
X-plore File Manager - great file manager that I've been using on Symbian and pretty much every single one of my Android devices since 2010 afterwards. Packed with features (some require a donation), never had ads in it and still gets regular updates.
Hacker's Keyboard - it may not have the best UI or a list of features, but when you need an onscreen keyboard that has all of the same keys as the full fledged physical keyboard it saves you in a pinch.
ZArchiver - lightweight and fast archive manager.
Neutron Music Player - the most recent addition to my favorite apps. Unrivaled audiophile quality music player for Android in my opinion. Best used if you have a smartphone with a dedicated DAC or an external one. Free version has all of the same features, but is limited to 5 days trial.
May I suggest X-plore?
Tips for new CB, but otherwise experienced user?
There have been issues with ES File Explorer on the Shield and I personally had problems with my Shield until I uninstalled it.
I moved to X-plore File Manager and have had no problems. (Total Commander is great, also. It's not on my Shield, but it's one of the first things I install on other Android devices.)
If a computer isn't handy, X-plore File Manager will access shared folders on your network so you can copy files to the Shield.
I love X-plore. It's a little dated in look and feel but makes connecting to PCs and cloud storage so easy.
Upvote for x-plore
Best file manager. like leagues ahead of others
X-plore File Manager [link]
Modded versions are also available.
I found a way around... Go to this link and download the APK file. Save the file in a USB flash drive and plug it to the android TV once saved. Use a file manager (X-Plore File Manager) to navigate through the USB flash drive and install the app manually from there.
Try X-plore File Manager [link]
X-Plore I have been using the app for years now. Highly recommend it.
X-plore file manager. It's not well known file manager, but after unlocking all features it's great for advanced users.
I wonder why X-plore doesnt get more love here, maybe I am missing something?
delete es and start using x-plore [link]
X-Plore File Manager
I use it solely for streaming videos from cloud storage and wifi file transfer. The UI is ugly and generally awful but it's the most reliable app I've found for cloud streaming via the internal player or VLC, MX Player and the like.
SD MaidPro (rooted)
Hands down the best cleaning app. The file manager is lightweight, crisp and fast as well.
<strong>Boost For Reddit</strong>
The post, comment, link and media controls in Boost are a lot more intuitive to me than other apps.
<strong>QuickPic 4.5.2 by Q-Supreme Team</strong>
A re-signed version of QuickPic that doesn't phone home to the Play store. The one on XDA wasn't available for a while so I wound up with this. Works great.
<strong>Quick Reboot</strong> (rooted)
Numerous reboot options. Handy to have around.
Also, x-plore file manager Laptop > phone > Laptop any folder.

X-plore File Manager 多機能で使いこなせないけど便利
X-plore File Manager: Dual-pane view and free cloud[Dropbox, Google drive ...] amongst many features.
X-Plore File Manager's Disk Map
Looks like this
Unfortunately you must! Sadly it's now generally regarded as malware after being the top file manager for years.
X-Plore works great for the TV interface. Has a file sharing component.
There are some FTP instructions on the Shield forums here too.
You need to drill down into the settings and permissions these days to get write access and enable hidden files to be viewed but it's all fairly straight forward.
Installed this one since it's the only other one I saw on the Android TV market, works decent enough and the UI isn't shit.
You have to jump through a few hoops since the app isn't officially available in the Google Play Store for Android TV yet, but it's honestly pretty trivial. I had the whole thing set up in about 15 minutes.
First, you need to download the official Xbox Game Pass app from an Android app mirror site. I downloaded this one (armeabi-v7a architecture): https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/microsoft-corporation/xbox-game-pass/xbox-game-pass-2009-270-925-release/
Then you need to install an app that allows you to manage files and sideload apps on an Android device. X-plore File Manager seems to be a pretty popular choice: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lonelycatgames.Xplore
You just copy the .apk file you downloaded in the first step to your Dropbox or Google Drive or whatever, and then install it via X-plore File Manager.
And finally, the last quirk is that the app won't show up in your Apps/Favorites section, so you need an app that lets you easily launch sideloaded apps. Sideload Launcher seems to be the most popular choice: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.chainfire.tv.sideloadlauncher&hl=en_US&gl=US
Install Sideload Launcher and run it, and you'll see the Game Pass app right there, front and center. I added an old DualShock 4 I had laying around as a Bluetooth device to the Sony TV, and it worked perfectly right out of the box. The only remaining quirk I haven't solved yet is there doesn't appear to be an easy way to exit a cloud game using the DS4. So far, I've just used the TV remote to back out of games and/or go back to the home screen.
X-Plore is the right answer.
Here is why IMHO: https://medium.com/@darkuni/quest-techie-wireless-file-access-from-your-phone-computer-dec807dd6631
not yet. im wary of trialware.
will try X-plore FM first.
X-plore is the one I use daily, very simple but extremely powerful
Out of box, you can't write to USB drive attached to Mi Box as removable storage in Oreo. You can attach multiple drives with a USB hub (only one can be formatted as device storage). One thing you need to watch out is power consumption, especially with mechanical drives. I have two USB sticks (one formatted as device storage and another as removable storage for sharing media & apk files occasionally), a wired PS4 controller, and a USB key for wireless keyboard/mouse combo attached to a USB hub without its own power source.
But 3rd-party OTG driver supports limited write access to USB drives. I say "limited" because you can only write to USB drive in specific file managers, not in whatever apps you want. Here are a few apps with 3rd-part OTG drivers that I have tested on Mi Box. Look for "custom USB OTG driver" option in their settings. Once you enable it, next time when you attach a USB drive there will be a popup asking whether you want to mount it with that app (try to enable only one custom OTG driver a time).
X-plore ([link]) : FAT32 (read/write), exFAT (read-only)
MiXplorer ([link]) : FAT32 (read/write), exFAT (read/write), NTFS (read-only)
Microsoft exFAT/NTFS for USB by Paragon Software with Total Commander ([link]) : FAT32 (read/write), NTFS (read/write), exFAT is not supported on Android TV devices (they claim Microsoft didn't give them the license)
Finally, a word of caution, there's always the risk of data corruption when writing to a USB drive with 3rd-party OTG driver. So it's better not to use 3rd-party OTG driver on USB drive that carries very important data (unless they are already fully backed-up).
... amongst others.
I'd suggest XPlore. I got the recommendation here from a number of people. [link]
I would suggest to try this before hand:
Recover from an app that refuses start- If you're rooted:First backup the app and data (if applicable, ensure that your max backup count is high enough so your new backup won't erase latest one) using a backup app (ex: Titanium Backup).Then backup your saves by copying /data/data/jp.co.hit_point.nekoatsume/files/savedata_system.sav elsewhere.If you have an older backup, uninstall game and restore an older version. If not, download an older version. Finally restore game save either via a backup app or by copying it back.- If you're not rooted:Either root your phone, or wait for the next update that will (hopefully) solve the problem.You can also try to backup your save file by using the save file copy method (might work on some phones). If you succed, simply uninstall the game, install older version (download available from this site) then copy back your backed up save file.- Anyway, DO NOT UNINSTALL APP, or you will lose all your progress.
I made a copy of this at https://neko.servbox.eu/howto.php for archive.
Concerning the API cheat:
Rooted Android device method:
You can do it again every day.If you wan to get back to non-cheat passwords, just delete the added line in hosts file.
You can also make your own server to reply to API requests (you should then use your own IP in hosts file).The page must return data in this format:1,password,silver fish count,gold fish count,today's date,Example:1,neko,999999999,999999999,2018-09-28,Page must be located at app/nekoatsume/neko_daily_en.php
I also made a copy of this at https://neko.servbox.eu/neko_api.php.
I may also be able to manually edit a save file to grant any number of fishes from start, so I could make a fresh game save file lot of fish for those who lost their save (this will probably need some work so don't expect this today :))
Tell me how you succeed or if you need more information on something (I did that quick, didn't had time to try it all).
You may find X-plore File Manager quite useful.
X-plore File Manager: LAN, Dual-pane view and free cloud[Dropbox, Google drive ...] amongst many features.
I use X-Plore [link]
Also check out [link]
i like X-Plore, feels like a computer :) [link]
I am using X-Plore
It works on AndroidTV too
this one? [link]
I always go back to <strong>Xplore</strong> because of how it handles its dual pane view. Folders open in a tree view, copy/pasting is a breeze, it syncs to dropbox and I can even transfer files from my laptop using the LAN server. Oh and it's search is excellent,
It's not pretty, but for something like managing my files I go for function over form. Tried Cabinet, ES file manager and a few others, still haven't replaced this.
Edit: Also good for seeing which files are taking up your space, <strong>Disk Usage</strong> (has a very nice visual representation) and <strong>SD Maid</strong> (clears junk/empty folders and cache).
How about X-plore file manager? It has many features, including access to SMB servers.
"You don't have an app that can do this" mean you don't have file manager app installed.
Well... These the Xplore app seem to work just fine...( It works without root as well)
You can transfer files from a SMB share on a PC or cloud drives (Box, Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, etc.) to Android TV devices with X-plore: [link]
But I suggest getting a USB hub eventually as PSX/PSP/Dreamcast games can use a lot of space: [link]
Here is a video for emulation test on device with similar Amlogic chip as the new Chromecast: [link]
S905D3 in the new Chromecast is a variant of S905X3 with built-in tuner support.
Hi. This evening I was helping a family member who had the same issue. We wanted to restore from local backup instead of google drive, because the google drive backup was corrupt - or at least the chats were not coming back.
After several hours of cursing at WhatsApp's crappy documentation and half-working instructions spread over the internet, we finally managed to do it. Based on what you wrote you have clearly also searched a lot, and you _almost_ got all the steps right - assuming our method works for you as well.
Here's what we did, starting from very the beginning. Hope this helps someone.
I really like X-Plore File Manager. It just works for me visually.
it -or something like it- is integrated in X-plore -maybe it works with 10
try this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1ThPS7GNbw
if you want to send files over the network I recommend X-Plore: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lonelycatgames.Xplore
this is the app:
u use the left side for u phone and the right side for u ps3 once ur conected
Xplore File Manager lets you do that:
It's included in this file explorer
Install this file explorer from the Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lonelycatgames.Xplore&hl=es
(Is the best File Explorer and allows you connect to your phone or your computer using SMB, FTP, webdav, you even can explore your google drive, dropbox or any cloud storage)
Use this file explorer to access to any place where you can copy aptoide tv apk: https://tv.aptoide.com/ and install it.
Use Apptoide TV to install any APK you want.

File manager app directly from phone through WiFi: x-plore.
Staggering to read most of people's stupid answers here.
I had the same problem for over 2 months.
The sync from Files app up to Google Drive is broken - since Chrome 77 apparently - and causing the loop (with Background Pages process running, not completing and restarting - Only the sync from Google Drive down to Files app is working - the up sync is causing the problem)
So after reading this thread ...
Chromebook won't stop attempting to sync files.
... I chose not to do a Powerwash as some people were reporting that it only fixed the problem for a little while(then they had to do another Powerwash ..etc.)
EDIT: from the recommended answer ...
Once the Powerwash is done, please work around this issue by uploading files directly to drive.google.com.
So I decided to save myself from going through the Powerwash and just disconnect my Google Drive until the bug is permanently fixed. (same practical end result for me as I can "view" drive.google.com directly in the browser or in the android app)
Disconnect Google Drive account
That stopped the endless syncing exasperating my cpu and bandwidth.
You can use ...
... directly to upload to it .
I actually use a free double-pane Android File manager: X-plore File Manager (free Cloud Storage access: Google Drive, Dropbox etc.) to manually keep files in sync.
I am also looking into installing the FolderSync android app to automatically one-way sync from my Chromebook Downloads folder up to Google Drive)
I use x-plore file manager
Some of these seem super shady, from looking at their pictures. Has anyone used X-plore? How does it compare to Solid?
... I chose not do a Powerwash as some people were reporting that it only fixed the problem for a little while(then they had to do another Powerwash ..etc.)
So I decided to disconnect my Google Drive until the bug is permanently fixed.
you'll need a file manager from the play store to access the usb. I use xplore file manager
Good thing many file managers like the one I use, X-plore, supports WiFi file transfers between devices.
Disconnect Google Drive account
That will stop it. The sync from Files app up to Google Drive is broken and causing the loop (with Background Pages process running, not completing and restarting - Only the sync from Google Drive down to Files app is working.)
You are better off using ...
I actually use a free double-pane Android File manager: X-plore File Manager (free Cloud Storage access: Google Drive, Dropbox etc.)
Upload to your Google Drive. Install something like X-Plore File Manager to access the files.
I use this
You must use any file manager like X-plore.
I like X-Plore
I know the file manager I use has a similar feature: [link]
I have two ways to install Dolphin on my Shield Pro.

Hope this is useful. Bit of pain in the arse but works for me and once set up it is far more painless.
>x-plore file manager
I see two versions from different company in the Play store, which one are you referring to?
Xplore can scan your device and show what is using the space
This is a pretty good app that will open most anything -- [link]
I understand the ui isn't for everyone but this is the only file manager I use too.
I found that this app works well.
Take a look at this X-plore it'll help
So i'll answer my own question, as I've been looking for this for a while, and there's a couple of unanswered questions on here about it.
X-plore can display video thumbnails over the lan (like a windows SMB share):
It's helpful if you want to view your NAS / seedbox stuff on your android phone. Surprisingly I haven't found a single other app which does this. ES can't, Solid File Explorer can't, FX Plus file explorer can't.....the list goes on.
Hoping someone finds this useful.
The unanswered posts:
I used MindMeister a few years back importing freemind files via Google Drive that I had uploaded from Freeplane Windows program. In the end I found the synchronisation too cumbersome and didn't like the UI too much. I was only using the free 3 mindmaps version as I'm not a friend of monthly charges.
Do give miMind that I posted about a try. You should be able - even in the free version - to sync the maps stored in sdcard/miMind either manually with either MiXplorer or X-plore File Manager.
You could automate syncing using FolderSync or Autosync for Google Drive
Ok I have some good news and some bad news for you. The good is that what you said was basically my initial plan too. I have my Launchbox folder on my Google Drive and it's synced between my PCs, so I though why not having it on my phone too. The bad is that if you have the same setup:
A) you already know how badly Google Drive tends to deal with large numbers of files..not only it takes years to open, go have a look at your trash folder online, yes, those files count towards your quota, and no there's no actual way to delete all of them without pressing "delete all" a thousand times..
B) it's worse when you have to deal with Android's Google Drive APIs. If you want to test this yourself, just test one of those sync apps you mentioned, or simply try this (my favourite file manager for android) and download your launchbox folder locally. It will take AGES, because every file is addressed individually..
C) so you say let's try to treat them as one file! Nope, even worse, you can't even zip the folder from Google Drive's website (or your pc and then transfer via USB), because a lot of the characters that are used in the files/images are not compatible with the .zip or even .7z formats (i don't know if there is a way to make it work, but keep in mind that you'd have to uncompress the folder on the smartphone later), so for example you end up with images originally called "Pokémon.jpg" being turned into "PokBmon.jpg", which obviously makes it a nightmare to match game names and pictures.
At the time of writing the app still supposes you transfer all the required files via USB/LAN..the client is already able to display a grid of images, play the associated music, and you have a "sort of Big Box" view to see al your games in more detail in full screen landscape. It's very early though and I still want to add some basic features such as filters and the ability to launch local android games before releasing it. I'll also leave the project public on Github so that anyone could improve on it if he so wished. Still, there was some talk on the LB forums about adapting a server someone had written to run on PC to "stream" the folder to the device, but at this time I still haven't looked into that. The app will probably release with detailed instructions on how to transfer the required folders yourself, or I might make a little script that does it for you, but that'll probably require a lot of work for not so much benefit (for the average LB user who's probably already pretty crafty and can copy paste a folder himself).
As for the emulation part, I know there are some emulators for Android and I could probably make the app somewhat work in sync with them, it's still too early for that though. At this time, the app is just a cool place to show off your collection on the go, or to admire all of your work even if you don't have your pc with you..that's kinda what I use LB for anyway =D
If you have any suggestions about the emulation part feel free to post them here, I'll definitely post updates here and on the forums once I have something. It might take some months though, it's a fan project and one I have very little time for sadly.
I've been using X-plore File Manager for years.
I have yet to find a better file explorer for Android.
Surprised noones mentioned xplore. That things kicks ass.
X-plore is great as well
Recover from an app that refuses start
- If you're rooted:
First backup the app and data (if applicable, ensure that your max backup count is high enough so your new backup won't erase latest one) using a backup app (ex: Titanium Backup).
Then backup your saves by copying /data/data/jp.co.hit_point.nekoatsume/files/savedata_system.sav elsewhere.
If you have an older backup, uninstall game and restore an older version. If not, download an older version. Finaly restore game save either via a backup app or by copying it back.
- If you're not rooted:
Either root your phone, or wait for the next update that will (hopefully) solve the problem.
You can also try to backup your save file by using the save file copy method (might work on some phones). If you succed, simply uninstall the game, install older version (download available from this site) then copy back your backed up save file.
- Anyway, DO NOT UNINSTALL APP, or you will lose all your progress.
Rooted Android device method:
1) Use your favorite file explorer that support root (example: X-plore File Manager)
2) Go to /system/etc/
3) Edit the file "hosts" adding the following line:
4) Restart Neko Atsume
5) Go to daily password prompt
6) Enter "neko"
7) You should be awarded 999999999 gold fishes and 999999999 silver fishes
You can do it again every day.
If you wan to get back to non-cheat passwords, just delete the added line in hosts file.
For non-rooted users, this could be achieved with an intercepting proxy.
You can also make your own server to reply to API requests (you should then use your own IP in hosts file).
The page must return data in this format:
1,password,silver fish count,gold fish count,today's date,
Page must be located at app/nekoatsume/neko_daily_en.php
This page is to show and get password.
You also must do another page which will be called to check password validity. It must return same kind of values.
Amaze File Manager
X-plore. Xplora is a GPS app.
Thanks for the tip; going to give it a shot.
Apparently this one works with Android TV from my limited Googling.
I'm back with some additional stuff (more like some 'thank you' content).
I had gottten used to X-plore File Manager , which allows me to navigate Android directory tree and evaluate folder sizes in a graphical way - like THIS.
So I got sort of pissed off when, after installing an SD card, all I was getting to see from it was a copycat list of seemingly empty folders.
However after a bit of googling & testing I came to realize that what I was running into was actually a limitation of stock Android, i.e., a non-root device will block me to see (and act upon) whatever sensible stuff, "for my own protection". In other words, regardless of whatever tool I might use, the sizes of files and folders belonging to apps and placed within the SD card would be hidden from me.
I still can see the details and sizes of files & folders that I created MYSELF in the SD card, like videos and images - but in order to see the big picture and be able to view 100% of file sizes, I'll have to ROOT my phone first (which is something I intend to do in the near future, anyway).
2 - Re the first 2 apps suggested by /u/kopfler (FX File Explorer and MK Explorer): I have tested them in the past, and I can't recall any interesting feature in either of them that I wouldn't also find in X-plore (link given in #1), whose UI I prefer.
3 - Re the third app suggested by /u/kopfler (SanDisk Memory Zone), I read the description, watched the video, didn't feel any good feeling about it, and decided to pass it (without even testing). IMHO the app has too much functionality and too little focus (as it frequently happens with SW brought about by HW manufacturers).
4 - /u/AlexJimL suggested AirMore. I installed and tested it... but since I have a 5-yr-old phone, a 6-yr-old laptop, a quirky Internet connection and an untrustable router, my actual results were nothing to write home about. But I'm under the impression that Zapya 1 and Zapya 2 (which I actually use now and then) do the very same thing as AirMore, only faster and with less quirks. I'm also aware of AirDroid, SHAREit and Xender, which are all said to do the very same thing, but I haven't personally tested either of them yet. Maybe in my particular case Xender would merit a 2nd look, since I have a Samsung Smart TV whose OS is Tizen and Xender is said to support it.
5 - One side aspect I haven't completely factored in yet, when considering this category of Android apps, is the possibility of remote controlling the Android device from a PC - I might take a further look into this soon. Aside from the venerable TeamViewer, AirDroid also says it does it. As to AirMore, I was only able on my tests to MIRROR some Android screens to the PC, but could not interact with them from the PC side.
6 - I ended up stumbling, in a totally random way, upon another app that somehow manages to mitigate the limitations of file management under non-rooted Android - it's Link2SD, free edition. While it's advertised as being exclusively useful to ROOTED users (as in, moving & linking specific components of specific apps into the SD card), I found its REPORTING section quite useful to me and my non-rooted S4. It can tell me WHICH apps are already in the SD card, plus which others CAN be moved; and for all apps, the space usage is broken down into apk / dex / lib / data / cache / total. I can see the individual PATH/filename for each app component. I have 11 options for grouping apps in the report, coupled with 12 independent sorting options !
7 - Since I got up to this point I will add a couple more links (and will bookmark this topic for my future personal reference). Files To SD Card is a simpler version of Link2SD (seemingly for non-root users). OTOH, App2SD free and App2SD PRO are sister apps that started initially from the basic functionality of Link2SD, and ended up evolving into a respectable AIO toolset for ROOT users.
So, that's about it. Feel free (and thx !!) to correct or complement any wrong / broken info and assertions you might find above.
How well does this compared to X-plore
X-plore File Manager
I find X-plore File Manager by
Lonely Cat Games to be excellent.
I also find X-plore File Manager by
Lonely Cat Games excellent.
Xplore file manager has a viewer built in and is free. [link]
has a rather unique "dual window" system that works well
nici x-plore nu e rău
My new fav file manager has an FTP client: X-Plore. Tap show , FTP on the main screen for access.
Download x-plore and you'll see the option.
X-plore works wonderful for me and practically does everything that ES can also do.
Google Opinion Rewards
I know you want free, but once in a while I find an app worth buying:
Easy to use form maker to do anything from track assets, drive time log, and part number tracking for stuff on my car (I keep the light bulb numbers and what they go to since my car seems to eat them)
I've been using the Xplore File Manager the last few months. It's growing on me.
use this, does just about any protocol in common use today and has a logical workflow [link]
I'm a fan of Xplore.
I have a nexus player and I find X-plore File Manager to be a better option than ES file explorer.
I suggest you try X-Plore File Manager, I find it far superior to ES.
X-plore is already very good.
Root, FTP, SMB, Sqlite, Zip, Rar, 7zip, DLNA/UPnP explorer
Well, it can be temporary files, that were not deleted in time. Our anything else. If you don't have root, you can download some kind of a file manager, that can show you how much space your folders and files take.
I use X-plore and it can show your space like this: [link]
Enable hidden files and folders in options. For example, up until recently, telegram didn't really clean its cache automatically, and it could be like 4gb in \/telegram folder. All browsers use cache, and if you don't have time to find unnecessary files, you can safely clear it: [link].
Basically, you need a certain amount of free space to install apps. On nexus 5 it's 500mb, and if you have 499mb free you won't be able to install apps from Google play.
X-Plore recently have this feature too!
Try X-plore. See if it does everything you need.
Beat me! I use this app daily.
Windows Share and [link]
X-plore has that, with a very nice UI
I have been using it since it was on Symbian OS
Also X-plore file manager has heaps of features close to ES:
Do one for X-plore! I use it, but even I admit it's hideous.
Going to need a FULL debug log . as you have installed the latest version of seren and gone into seren > tools > wipe . and restarted . and still have issues this is a very weird issue .
You can grab it over the network (as long as you install smb1 on windows 10 ) or use a usb drive to transfer the file over to pc you can then upload it with . OR use the kodi log file uploader tool linked in rule 7 [link] its in the offical kodi repo .
The location (if you want to manually grab the file ) of the log on a shield is this >
I use xplore file manager for android to manage my shield files if i'm not just directly accessing it over network
[link] This also supports most cloud services such as google / etc
Besides that the only thing i can suggest is this >
You have properly restarted both your router/modem and shield correct ?
Also what happens when you turn OFF autoplay and choose source select / fancy ?
None of them!
Get this one: X-Plore
I think this is the easiest app for sharing devices to a Windows PC on the same network:
To send any file to a PC, you just share it like you'd share a picture to Facebook and select Xplore. Then, the app opens and sends it to a shared folder on your Windows PC.
It's also just as easy to send files from your PC to your device. Just open up the shared folder in Xplore and copy it to your phone.
Plus, I don't need to install another app just for this function. Everyone uses a file explorer anyway, so it's nice that Xplore does double duty.
Best part is that you don't have to install any additional apps on Windows either.
All the best features are free but I donated to the dev anyway.
From the Google Play Store of course:
The hack you may need is located here:
