Root Mode for File Browser v2+

Your rating: None Average: 5 (7 votes)

Run File Browser with super user privileges. (For version 2.0.0+.)

A setuid helper binary is used to start the app. The source file is included in the package at `/usr/share/harbour-file-browser-root-beta/start-root-helper.c`.


USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. This app can be used to corrupt files on the phone and make the phone unusable. The author of File Browser does not take any responsibility if that happens. So, be careful.


Just as File Browser, this is released under the terms of the GNU GPL v3+. See the main repository for more information. Sources can be found on Github (directory 'root').
