Root Explorer Updated to Version 3.1.2, Brings Themes and Custom Icon Support

Root Explorer

This morning, the publishers of Root Explorer posted an update to the app through Google Play, bringing a few customization options for users. Starting with version 3.1.2, rooted Android 4.0+ device owners can select from three different preset themes, as well as apply third party custom icon packs. With this addition, you can make the app very personal feeling and keep to your device’s overall look. This update is clearly for the OCD person inside all of us. 

What’s New:

  • The latest update gives you the ability to customize the app even more. With Version 3.1.2 we have added a Light theme and a unique Home Wallpaper theme.
  • Along with different folder colors and the ability to fully customize icon sets, you can truly make the look of the app different and give it a personal touch.

If you are still rocking root on your device, then go grab the update via Google Play.

      (not to not be all like, “OMG Root Explorer is totally one of my besties from forever!”, because it is)

    Oh, so now I’m OCD if I want my sh*t to look good?!

    My Moto X isn’t rooted yet, but I still use Root Explorer.

  • Tim242

    I have tried the rest. Root Explorer is the best. It has been with me through many phones since 2009.

    Ive started using ES File Explorer alot more due to the fact that ES supports storage on my NAS box. If Root Explorer integrated it, it would be game over.

    • duke69111

      Yea, ES has come a long way and I really like a lot of the features they have added.

    • HarleyGuy72

      That’s what I use too. Is there any advantage going with Root explorere or any other?

      • Teng Taing

        Not anymore. Ive had root explorer back in the droid x days and back then, it was the best file browser out there. Now ES does everything root explorer does and more. Also ES is free w/ no ads while root explorer does cost money

        • HarleyGuy72

          Thanks. That’s pretty much why I stick w/it. Cheers!

    Sliding Explorer has become my go-to.

    • ReturnOfTheMack

      I like Sliding Explorer a lot especially the design, but it is missing a few small features for me to use it over Root Explorer.

    This is one of those apps that I’ve had since my first Android (Eris then Inc) and still continue to use it on a weekly basis.

    • ReturnOfTheMack

      Same here, I’ve tried others but i always keep coming back to Root Explorer. Loving the light theme.

    • Tim242

      My first Android was the brother of the Eris, the Hero. The Incredible was my firstAndroid after switching to Verizon. I’ve had too many phones since. Note 3 incoming!

  • vermiciouskanid

    I love it but I hate the icon.

    • Tim242

      Well, change it!

    Love Root Explorer 🙂

    • Raven

      I love Root Explorer as well. It is always one of the first apps I put on my devices, even before I have rooted them. It is a great general purpose explorer, especially since adding multiple tabs. This latest change is just icing on a very tasty cake.
