ok,

i have found a way to add things to my favorites List but i cant add "File Explorer"


i can add most things (music/video folders, Apps, games, tracks, videos) but not the File Explorer,

i know it can be done as i had a pimped version of XBMC & it was already in there,

any tips on adding File Explorer to my favorites List are most welcome smile.gif

You will have to go to your userdata dir and open up Favourites.xml and manually add it
