View and organize the contents of your Android device. The tool supports a wide array of devices including Samsung, HTC, Sony, Nexus, etc. and automatically detects the connected handset. It installs APK files form the PC, takes screenshots, updates Google applications and includes a command shell. Only works with rooted devices as it requires the BusyBox app and the USB debugging feature to be enabled.

The Droid Explorer is a small tool to manage your rooted android device with the simplicity of Windows Explorer.
