comment Droid Explorer does not recognize Android Studio as a valid Android SDK during install.
ok, great. And I will look in to installing the Android Studio and see what is different about the SDK and see if I can add support for that in the future as well.

Ahhh, So I was not aware that the layout changed in SDK for 5. I will look in to what has changed and will make changes to support that. So, since that is the case, yes, currently, the latest SDK is not supported.

Why would you have to install an older version of the SDK? What I am saying is currently, Droid Explorer does not support the SDK that is installed with Android Studio, the only officially supported SDK is the Standalone install of the SDK. If you have an issue with 2 versions of the SDK, then you can have Android Studio use the SDK that is installed by the standalone installer.

comment “input string was not in a correct format” DroidExplorer Desktop
I think i found some more information that may lead to me being able to fix this. I have added another question to the bug if someone could provide information, it would help.

comment Unable to browse device (Droid Explore)
I just saw the second part that you have the same issue with the device running CM11. This sounds more like something that I would consider a bug. If you could file the bug on the Issue Tracker. Sounds like the application is locking up for some reason. In the bug, please provide as much info as possible. OS, system specs (like memory, processor), android sdk version, phone info. Thanks. I am going to vote to close this, as I do not think there is any answer that would solve it, unless I can reproduce it.

Without investigation, I would suggest you make sure you have busybox installed on the device. It is a requirement for droid explorer to work correctly.

comment Unable to locate the android SDK tools, please reinstall the application
I would suggest looking at this question, uninstall, deleting the following registry locations: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\DroidExplorer, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wow6432Node\DroidExplorer, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\DroidExplorer, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\DroidExplorer, then reinstall. (I am the developer of Droid Explorer)

comment Cannot find SDK or point to it, both programs installed
are you on a 64bit machine? if so take a look at HLKM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\DroidExplorer\InstallPath\. On 64bit, this node still resides in the 32bit hive.

I have added a comment/question to the bug. Once I get that information, I may be able to provide a "work around" here, and then a fix in code later.

comment “input string was not in a correct format” DroidExplorer Desktop
This is more suitable as a bug report. I am out of town and have very limited computer access. But my initial thought is it has to do with the versions of the platforms downloaded with the SDK. There as a time that one of the platform names did not follow their own standard. You could try to remove the platforms by deleting all the folders in the SDK platforms folder. Then add the platforms again.

comment Restore Droid Explorer Backup
@RobFisher it would be in the same location. Make sure you have java installed, as it is required to unpack.

Could you expand your answer and explain how to do this? Just from your answer, I do not know what you are suggesting.

comment Turn phone on with ADB or Fastboot?
In order for this to work, they would have to be in fastboot. And that would mean that the phone is on. The original question is can the device be powered on my adb or fastboot command line tools. And The answer to that is "no", since the device has to be on for it to listen for any of the commands from those.

comment Why is there :nopm: in some photo file names?
After thinking about this for some time, I actually think that :nopm: means NO Photo Manager. As it appears that the Google+ Photos app will not backup the photos that contain :nopm:. This is just a theory.

comment Options For Samsung Galaxy S5 ACTIVE “SMG870W”- Users with Custom Rom compatibility?
Did you just say that Cyanogen developers modify the original Samsung Rom? because that could not be further from the truth. Cyanogen has been build custom builds of Android since before Samsung even had an Android phone. Cyanogen (and other custom rom teams) build off of AOSP. A lot of the features that you see in Samsung ROMs were available in Cyanogen (and other roms) first. With all that said, this does not even begin to answer the original question and is nothing more than a rant.

if /system/xbin/su exists, then you did not lose root. That is root.
