I read somewhere that the Task Killers aren't necessary anymore for Android phones since they do a good job killing tasks already.

Idk... Just that AT&T has had the best phone for a couple years now.


Actually, AT&T had the worst phones out of the major phone carriers. AT&T is finally starting to add Android powered phones to their lineup.

The Motorola Atrix and HTC Inspire are two great phones coming out on AT&T.

How to manage your phone's files without using a USB Cord

You will need a Secure FTP program (my suggestion is WinSCP if you are on windows or Cyberduck if you are on a mac) and QuickSSHd. Rooting your phone is optional. You need to know your computers IP

Links:
- QuickSSHd (there is also a pro version, available in app market
- WinSCP, I use version 4.2.9 you can use beta or anything you like
- Cyberduck, Direct link, for mac users only

  • Download QuickSHHd. Make sure Wi-fi is on and start it up, the home screen should look like this
  • Type in a password, I'll use "alpine" In the top right hand corner make sure the box says "on" if not, tap it
  • Open up WinSCP or Cyberduck, i'll use winscp as an example. Hit "new" on the right hand side
  • Follow this image: Posted Image
  • Select your login now by double clicking it, it should say something like root@192.168...... Press continue when an authentication window pops up. Type in your password.
  • You can now see your files without plugging a USB cord in and selecting Mass Storage. You can do anything such as put files in for music, take out downloaded files, edit, move replace, transfer files. Rooted users don't be editing anything in the system folder if you don't know what you are doing.

what are the main benefits other than being able to workm with some of the files on the phone that you otherwise can't, and being able to install paid apps for free?
