Droid Explorer 0.8.8.0 Released

explorer-viewLast night I released a new version of Droid Explorer that addresses some major issues that were introduced with the latest versions of the SDK.

  • Fixed the issue with the latest android SDK using “platform-tools” directory instead of “platforms/android-{platformversions}/tools”.
  • Fixed the screen shot tool to support newer devices (some are now using 32bpp RGB, instead of 16bpp RGB565)
  • Fixed an issue with the Bart plugin license not being detected on the device.
  • Fixed the console not working on some devices.
  • Added Device icons for the LG G2X and Samsung Galaxy S variants.
  • The Google USB drivers have been removed from the installer
  • Use existing SDK is now the default and recommended option
  • Other minor fixes

Download Droid Explorer 0.8.8.0

As always, there are x86 and 64 bit versions available.

The Standalone version is an “Offline Installer” where the other can download additional files (if you are not using an existing SDK).

The last release of Droid Explorer (0.8.7.2) has ~139,000 downloads since August 21 2010, exactly eight months ago. The plan is for more releases of Droid Explorer, in much shorter time frames again. So lets see if the 0.8.8.0 can exceed the number of downloads before the next release (I doubt it will happen Smile)
