Root Explorer update fixes KitKat recursive search bug

January 16, 2014
Root Explorer best file manager apps

New updates to Explorer and Root Explorer fix a few bugs with two of the more popular file management apps for Android.

Version 3.1.6 of Root Explorer and version 2.1.2 of Explorer don’t add any new features to the apps, but they do solve a few issues users were having with them. In fact, the only new additions to the apps are the inclusion of xxxhpi and xxxhpi launcher icons.

Both app updates fix an issue where they failed to recognize 64GB exFAT SD cards when they were added in the external SD card tab. The apps also no longer have recurring authentication issues with Box, and it now enforce a slash when you’re entering an external SD card path. Previously forgetting the slash would cause issues in copying files to the SD card.

KitKat users will also be happy to know that the recursive search issue that arose when searching internal storage in KitKat is now fixed.

Finally, the updates should make it possible to use Explorer and Root Explorer to upload photos to websites without any issues.

They’re not exactly the most exciting app updates, but bug fixes are always welcome, no matter how small they may seem to some people.

Have you tried Explorer or Root Explorer? Or do you prefer a different file management app?
