This plugin enables full device root access for File Explorer (you need at least v1.1.0 or higher).
Currently, it's only supported on webOS 3 (i.e. the TouchPad), the app might stop working if you install this plugin on your webOS phone.
You won't see any new app icon - when this package is installed, you'll be able to browse and edit all system directories using File Explorer. Please make sure you know what you're doing...
If you get an error message during the installation, press the "IPKG Log" button, scroll to the "Postinst" section. Usually there should be an error message indicating what went wrong. If you can't figure it out, send me an e-mail through the help menu of File Explorer.
When you uninstall this plugin through Preware, root access should be gone in File Explorer.
