Samba Filesharing for Android


Access your Android device over wifi as a Windows shared folder.

* Samba Filesharing server for Android [ Recently updated for JellyBean probs ].
* Your Android device becomes visible to other Windows (& SMB compatible) computers on your network.
* The 'external' storage in your Android device is accessible as a network shared folder.
* Copy files and folders to and from your Android device using drag and drop.
* Customisable username, password, Windows workgroup name, and device network (NETBIOS) name.

Requirements:
* Your Android device must already be rooted and a SuperUser app installed.

Notes:
* On the first run, make sure you catch the SuperUser Auth request to allow the Samba Filesharing app root access.
* If an update from an earlier version fails, try a full uninstall (either from the application manager of your Android device, or the file sharing app 'Menu -> Settings -> Uninstall' option), then re-install from Android Market.
* If you experience problems accessing your device, be sure to try all three methods: Network browser, specifying \\name, & also \\ipaddress.
* You may see 'com.funkyfresh.samba' remain in the Android process list even though you have disabled it from auto-starting. This is normal - whenever the WIFI interface transitions up/down the app needs to run temporarily to check its settings as to whether it should start/stop the filesharing server, after that, its done. Android will kill the inactive process if your device is running low on memory, otherwise the process remains inactive in memory for faster loading next time you launch it.

After a few hours of research I see that I am not the only one having trouble with this app and the Droid Bionic. If anyone has a fix please let me know. I would love to use this app.

Working perfectly. With Samba I replaced the WebSharing app (but still have it as backup:). It doesn't have problems with upload and using it with Freecommander. Awesome app

Seems to be working perfectly. Together with Android Sync-Manager over Wifi, i will never have to plug my phone to anything except the charger. Great Stuff!

Working seamlessly on Dropad A8X. Transfer rate isn't very high - about 0.8MBPS Highly recommended!

Need internal sharing !!! I'd used this app for a long time and I'm very happy to use it but recently I have changed my phone and it doesn't have external SD card option. Now when I'm connecting to sharing its doesn't recognize the internal storage..plz add internal storage option too for sharing !!!
