Android is a mobile phone operating system that attracts everyone, from normal users to hackers and also the users with the mindset of a developer.

Root Explorer is available as one powerful Android application that makes file management hassle-free for all and even fascinating for some.
Root Explorer can assist an Android user to access each of the file stored inside the phone’s hard disk and SD memory card. The root directory in an Android phone is mounted as ‘read-only’.
