htc sensation new to droid explorer/coding... help opening data file?

Aug 11, 2011 at 1:21 AM

i've just got droid explorer installed, and im connected with my htc sensation and can see folder structure, but when i click on some folders they do not open up for me? i've installed busybox 1.18.4 it's s-off and should be good to go from what i've read/researched.

When i click on data. it just doesnt open up to show my files or my apps.

Any helps would be appreciated.

Can you open the debug console and then navigate to the directory that doesn't expand and post here what is in the debug console. The debug console is the little "bug" in the toolbar.

Any Ideas guys?

this has to do with the default permissions of /data. ADB, which is what Droid Explorer uses to currently communicate with your device, does not have 'root' access in the shell and some directory like /data dont allow you to access them unless you have root permissions. This is something that is being worked on, but I do not have an ETA yet to when it will be released. Another option is to change the permissions to /data with chmod.
