Root FTP Server


Root FTP Server enables you to access your file system over WiFi or USB. Unlike other similar products, it will let you make changes to any part of your device, for example to your data or system folder. You can of course access your SD card.

You have to have a ROOTED device!

Features:
• access the whole file system with read-write privilegies
• change files’ permissions
• use USB for higher transfer speed
• written in C++ to provide best performance
• active and passive mode
• access hidden files (starting with '.') - you have to use better ftp client (e.g. Total Commander of FileZilla)

Known issues:
• you cannot set password


For further details and information how to enable USB transfers please visit http://waterdev.com/apps/rftp.

Important:
If your connection to the ftp server drops after a while, you probably have a power-saving policy in your wifi settings. To avoid this issue follow the steps:
* Go to Settings > Wireless & networks > Wi-Fi settings
* Tap the menu button and select Advanced
* In the Wi-Fi sleep policy entry select Never

Very Disapointed Couldn't even establish a connection. Needs ability to assign password and port.

Very limited - poorly constructed. I purchased this app being advised that I could upload data via FTP to the /mnt/extsd/ folder. This actually works but seems to struggle with transfers from windows 8 windows explorer. It tends to freeze while calculating the time to transfer, and when it does work, the text files i transfer seem to be cut off at exactly 4kb. Most importantly, I am very dissapointed that there is no way to set a password for the user account so i have found it to be completely useless. This is a very limited application, with no options to keep alive on restart. A word to the wise: Consider alternatives. Not acceptable.

Fails on AOKP JB Really like this app but the installation of the binarys fail on every attempt. I tried putting the files in /data/rftp myself with no avail.

Excellent app, does what it says!! :) I will reccomend this to a lot of my friends, they wanted something just like this. And this totally works. I love how easy it is, only if you read and figure it out. then its pretty basic. i tried to COPY all my system files to my computer to keep, i was doing some work w/ them to try something out and it gave me an error of copying all of them, but when I copied 4 at a time, it worked. I would love it, if you could make it where you could password protect the FTP server, that would be great. Thanks a lot DEV for you hard work, and awesome app. worth $4.99. This is the only app on market, that I have found that will actually copy system files of the phone to computer, no other ones will that i found. i couldn't do it w/ Root Explorer or any others. thanks again :) ~Rooted Samsung Exhibit II 4g
