Doesn't work with rooted HTC Desire HD

Hi, I have installed busybox with rooted HTC Desire HD, when I open the debug mode then run Droid Explorer, it does find the device 'HT0C7RX25562'. But after click the "connect" button, their's only a root path "/" in the left panel, nothing shows in the right area.

I have checked the system requirements in the document, and tested on 3 different PC, none works. May I know whether Droid Explorer doesn't support DHD or it's a problem on my phone (from Hong Kong)?

rom: 1.32.832.6 CL278359 release keys

Debug console:

[commandRunner] adb.exe devices

[commandRunner] adb.exe -s HT0C7RX25562 shell busybox ls -lF --color=never "/"

[commandRunner] ls: unrecognized option '--color=never'

BusyBox v1.15.2 2009-11-27 10:38:30 GMT multi-call binary

Usage: ls [-lAacCdeFilnpLRrSsTtuvwxXhk] [FILE]...


Thanks in advance!

This has to do with your version of busybox. yours is the first ive ever seen that does not support --color=never. you do have a rather old version of busybox, i think 1.18.x is the latest.

Yeah! now it works! it caused by the integrated old busybox in HK rom, my steps:

1. s-off

2. recovery in HBoot

3. remove old version of busybox

4. install busybox 1.18.1


Thank you camalot!

I have the same Problem on my DHD. I have installed busybox installer by Jared Rummler from android market. Now my droid explorer works perfectly. Thank´s for the great tool!
