    Well today I promised a host of giveaways so that’s just what we shall deliver. Before you go to bed, we want to give you hackers a chance to win 1 of 5 free copies of Root Explorer. This application is a great piece of software to have if you have root access to your phone and want to delete all that bloat ware the carriers jam pack into your phone.
    Root Explorer is the ultimate file manager for root users. Access the whole of android's file system (including the elusive data folder!).


    Winners will be selected by me depending on how they respond to our question “why should we give you a copy” below. So comment away and let us know exactly why I should choose you.

    Because on I heard the warrior battle cry and responded. On Sunday 5/22/11 I am running the Warrior Dash in Mechanicsville, MD. I may not make it out alive. I would love a last chance to win something and be able to pass it along to my wife and children. A little something they can remember me by. Oh who am I kidding? They would have no idea what to do with it. But I want it. Pretty please with cherries on top. I will share some of my turkey leg and beer if you pick me.

    I need this because exploring your phone with anything else is like exploring your manhood with a playboy. It just doesn't do the job. :icon_eek:

    Demon...Thanks for the avatar - gave me a good giggle.

    Oh, BTW don't pick me...I paid for it about 1/2 hour after trying it...one of the best file(lets me at root) managers I've tried.

    Because I went from noob to explorer in a month

    I love DroidForums.net at you've helped me go from stock about a month ago to root, then flashing new radios, then ROM's, now nightly ROM's and Chad's Incredikernel beta's.

    The one thing I need to take it to the next level is Root Explorer, please.


    Thanks,

    Chris

    I've always loved reverse engineering things, and of course Android is no different. Now I understand that rooting isn't quite that, but at my low level of linux knowledge, it sure feels like it. When I first saw the D1 I fell in love and ditched my blackberry to buy it the day it came out. I discovered Droid Forums the same day, as well as the concept of rooting, custom kernals, and roms. Sure enough, I rooted it that same day (thanks to the awesome guides written & posted by DF users) and never looked back. There were lots of tasks I wanted to accomplish, but couldn't due to not having the time or patience to learn to use the terminal properly. My friend showed me Root Explorer and the capabilities and I was amazed! He allowed me to "borrow" it at the time, and I enjoyed using it until I had to RMA my phone. I now have a D2 (courtesy of Asurion) with root, but have been unable to afford my own copy due to bad living arrangements and a very unlucky streak of unemployment. My lady and I recently moved into our own place and have been penny-pinching to get by for now. Yeah I know, I'm paying a VZW phone bill and walking around with a D2 and almost no money in my pocket. It doesn't make much sense to me either, but I just can't part with my favorite piece of technology. I'd greatly appreciate getting a free copy of Root Explorer so that I'm able to safely remove some of the bloatware that comes on the D2 and provide an example of the power of rooting and the Root Explorer software to my friends with Android phones who don't know about it. And there you have it .. my droid-life story! Oh and um.. pick me pick me!!! :)

    If I say I don't want to win maybe I will actually win... It's like acting like you don't care about the one cute girl at the bar. Oh wait... that never worked for me.
