CM File Manager Now Available for Use on ICS-Based ROMson November 21, 2012 at 12:00 am
You may remember we recently talked about the latest addition to CyanogenMod’s own suite of applications, the CM File Manager. This now sits proudly alongside the collection of other unique apps such as CM messaging and Apollo music player.
The file manager itself is pretty straight forward, and does exactly what you’d expect it to. The interface is clean and intuitive, all the functionality you would expect is there. And of course, you aren’t limited to simply browsing through the SD card. Full root access is supported. The only problem that some people have faced with this latest addition, however, is that the application was specifically made for use with CM10 and wasn’t compatible with older versions. That’s no longer a problem, thanks to XDA Senior Member kemonine96, who modified the app to work on ICS-based CM9 ROMs.
Installation couldn’t be simpler. Just push the modified APK to /system/app, and off you go. Be warned though that NFC might not work properly if at all with this version, due to API compatibility issues. So if you’re running a version of CM9 and would like to give this a shot, head on over to the application thread for more info.
