If you are having trouble with ES File Explorer APK/App because “root” won’t be enabled, this is because ES File Explorer currently doesn’t support system-less root. System-less root has been implemented in newer Android device to get root and since ES File Explorer doesn’t support it, you will need another file explorer app with root enabled.
Well, Root Browser APK is the perfect alternative to using ES File Explorer when root doesn’t work. This Root Browser app supports for system and system-less root. If you need to modify system files using root, Root Browser APK is definitely the way to go.
Compared to ES File Explorer, the UI/features are not as good but again, Root Browser will support system-less root while ES File Explorer doesn’t.
