    3.2 update and file open via. explorer apps. not working

    folks

    I got the 3.2 update on my wifi xoom today. for some reason file open will not work through my explorer apps. I run several; esexplorer, explorer hd, etc.

    anyone lucky enough to get the update havin this issue?

    btw still have type lag......


    EDIT: This problem has been resolved by members of this forum, thanks! All you have to do is rotate your xoom to portrait to allow for the select software screen to appear. Once you do this the explorer apps remember the settings and will work in landscape as well as portrait. Thanks again for your help with resolving this issue!

    yeah I figured I lucked out and for some reason got it, really hope others get it soon

    I did some more testing, the two apps ref. above dont allow open of files but File Station and Dual File Manager do work just fine, must be an app. not Honeycomb 3.2 issue.

    again hope others get update soon

    The lag on this forum has as much to do with the forum software and its interaction with the Xoom as it does with the Xoom itself I think.

    The file managers will have to be updated to handle the new file hierarchies. Certainly things have changed with the new sdcard implementation.
    SDcard System Image Backup Using ClockworkMod Recovery v3.2.0.0.(RC4). Back yours up today!

    I'm not having any particular problems, but not sure quite what you're trying to do that is causing a problem. Open a file from within, say, ES File Explorer?
