File Manager/Explorer for Android devices.
3 posts • Page 1 of 1
I've had an HTC Wildfire for two years with Android 2.2. I love AndExplorer. But the system messed up and I hit factory reset. So now my old AndExplorer is gone. I have no gmail account any more; that may have been what blew up my phone.
I preserved my sdcard. I think my old AndExplorer.apk file is still in /mnt/sdcard/Downloads. I used Internet to go to the Lysesoft web page and download the APK. It downloaded AndExporer-1.apk; probablyl stored it in /mnt/sdcard/Downloads.
BUT HOW TO INSTALL IT? Sure, run AndExplorer and click on the apk file. But that's what I don't have any more. So HOW DO I INSTALL IT?
Great! That was the key clue. I had to download it from the phone. I didn't think of that because II already had AndExplorer.apk on my sdcard and my PC's hard disk, but no way to get Android to install it (because no AndExplorer yet).
 Go to http://www.lysesoft.com/products/andexplorer/ using the "Internet" browser ON THE PHONE
 Click on "Download". This takes me to another part of the same page which also says "Download" but ignore that.
 Click on "apk" for Android. This causes the download.
 When the little status part (from the top of the screen) says "Download complete", CLICK ON THAT MINI-MESSAGE and the phone asks if I want to install it. Click on YES and away we go!
Life is so much easier with AndExplorer.
