Does anyone know how to expand stuff it archives on Android? I do not have access to a computer to do this with. I am using Minivmac.


Thanks,
Rockettaco

Hmm... on the iOS build, you can drop stuffit files into the Documents folder and have them copy to the booted image, where you can use Expander in Mini vMac to unstuff.

Has someone compiled unar for Android? This might do the trick, but if the contents have resource forks, you're not going to be able to use them anyway. Much better solution would be to stick your stuffit file on a disk image somehow.

Do you know how I could get the files on a disk image (like I said I'm on Android)

Is the Android version of Mini vMac not capable of accessing any files stored on the Android filesystem?

Yes and no it will only identify .dsk and .img formats

It's probably a good idea to send a feature request to the port maintainer to enable Mini vMac's fileAdd feature.

On my Android tablet the "Unix" folder is on the desktop as it should be.
You will need OS 7.5 or better to make use of the Unix folder IIRC.
In doubt also check your .basilisk_ii_prefs file for the line "extfs /" which specifies the path of your shared folder.
Unstuffing sit files on an Android host should be done just like on other non Apple hosts.
Install Stuffit Expander or Stuffit5 on the desired BasiliskII drive and process your downloaded .sit files there after moving them via the Unix folder.

If a special file is needed, I am ready to put it into a zipped IMG container for uploading/mailing.

That is in BasiliskII. The OP's question is about Mini vMac.

Another possibility might be to install Basilisk II for Android with the needed 7.5+ boot volume and rom, then mount the stuffit cd to install it to work with .sit files. These can be moved in and out of Basilisk through the unix folder.

From there, I'm unsure how Mini vMac transfers files under Android since I haven't tried it yet, but if it can mount Mac image files, whatever .sit files can be added to the shared image from within Basilisk II for easier access by MVM.. just a thought :smile:
