What's new in this version (0.1-alpha):
Fixes an issue where the font size was greatly reduced.
THIS IS ALPHA SOFTWARE, NOT A FINISHED PRODUCT!
Also it requires the phone to be properly rooted with busybox installed.
I have been sitting on this application for a while, and have pretty much stopped developing it while more critical things have been occupying my attention. This is still the case, but I figured I would put up what I had so far, since it is currently usable.
Basically I wanted the functionality of Root Explorer and similar programs while being a miser and not a thief. As this was the second application I worked on it's a bit of a mess code wise, but as I said it does work, mostly.
Herein lies the rub. It may do something unexpected, or even catastrophically bad, and I bear no responsibility. I have been using it for months in this semi completed state without encountering any trouble, but aside from that it is entirely untested.
Additionally, as it has only been tested on my one phone it may run badly or fail to run altogether on another device or under different conditions. Please don't be too upset. I don't hate you and the people with the device or conditions in question. It's just that I have no way to test it on devices I haven't got and can't afford, nor can I account for every combination of unknown factors which might cause issues.
Lastly, it may do certain things slowly or start behaving erratically. If it does, just killing and restarting it should clear up any erratic behavior. Unfortunately speed issues would likely require additional knowledge and many weeks of rewriting inefficient code.
As a note, it doesn't actually copy or cut anything until you tell it to paste. Also, there are few to no confirmation dialogs (there used to be, but I got sick of them) so be careful what you ask for.
