PreCentral: Gain full access to your TouchPad with File Explorer (homebrew)

Recommended Posts

This tip is only for devices running webOS 3.0 and higher

File Explorer root pluginAlthough there are now a few quality file manager apps available for your webOS device, only Internalz Pro by Jason Robitaille has allowed you to have gain full access to all the files on your device, not just within the USB drive. However, Internalz Pro now has some competition. With the latest update to version 1.1 of File Explorer by pcworldSoftware, you can now install the "File Explorer root plugin" from Preware to unlock access to your device. You don't even need to launch the plugin, just close File Exploer (if open) and then install the plugin and you are good to go.

Although File Explorer will work on any webOS running webOS 2.1 or higher, this plugin is only compatible with the TouchPad and webOS 3.0 at the moment. For more details about the plugin and a complete step-by-step guide can be found within the app itself by launching File Explorer and then swiping down from the top-left to access the Application drop-down menu and choose "Help" and then select "Enable root access" from within the Help page. The developer also details how the plugin works, so if you can provide any help to getting it to work on webOS 2.x devices, please let him know!

File Explorer is available in the webOS App Catalog for $0.99 and is compatible with all webOS devices running webOS 2.1 or higher, although the "root plugin" only supports webOS 3.0 or higher.

It happens to apps also store to at new install. what may be occurring?
