Hi I am trying to get DE to work on my Vibrant. I have it working with my G1/Dream but I am having problems with my Vibrant. When I start DE it finds my device but in the folder window I just get a folder icon followed by "/" there are no other files or folders to view. 1) I have rooted my phone: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=723479 2) Samsung x86 USB drivers have been dled: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=7218057 3) I can see root on the phone with Root Explorer app. 4) Debug is turned on 5) I can access both internal and SD card storage via "my computer" 6) no change if SD cards are mounted or not De is a wonderful product that used a lot with my G1, and would continue to use on my Galaxy S Vibrant. thanks in advance

While you may have your phone rooted, current versions of Droid Explorer also require busybox installed. This requirement I hope will be eliminated in the future.

Thank you. I forgot this step. I am now able to see all of my files. Unfortunately this has brought up another issue. I can add files via copy and past files but I can not cut, delete or remove files both in root and on sdcard.

It should not be a problem on the sdcard, but /system and like you will not be able to delete/cut because those mount points are readonly. If you really want to, you have to remount them as read-write. this is also something that will be enabled in the future, with a "warning" dialog indicating that the mount points will be read-write.

I have busybox installed and rooted with same phone and I still have the same issue.

 

Edit: IE I do not see ANY files on device. Under folder on left it says "0 objects"

I can take screen shots though. Record the screen, all that. Just cannot access any files. I double checked and busybox is def installed, came with the root package when I rooted my phone.

can you go to the tools->options menu and find the "debug window" plugin in the tree and set it to auto start when droid explorer starts. then restart droid explorer. Can you then paste the output from that window here.

I am having the same issue with the latest build on two different PCs both running Windows 7 x64 Ultimate, here is a paste of the Debug Console

I actually fixed it. When I went to the Task Manager, I was not seeing adb.exe because "Show processes from all users" was not checked.

 

So what I did was uninstall everything then reinstall making sure that process was killed and it worked fine.

 

Thanks for the help though.

Try what I posted above.

 

On win7 it is not a check box at the bottom of Task Manager, it is a button. Good luck!

adb.exe is actually running. That is not the issue here.

Fixed by upgrading busybox to 1.16.2
