This App Sets Up a Linux Shell Environment This app has allowed me to discover much about the inner workings of Android devices. I have the advantage that I have Linux experience. Not all devices are made alike. Success will depend on the device. This app is best had with Hacker's keyboard. Linux commands are created by making a symbolic (soft) links to busybox or toolbox. This however requires ROOT. The filesystem on the user's "sdcard" does not support symbolic links. Without root the user is limited to the Linux commands that the manfacturer put in. Use the cp command to copy some files from internal memory to the sdcard. Use df to find block devices (drives) . Type the word "busybox" and read how Android uses one file to implement numerous commands. On many devices "toolbox", is used in place of busybox.This app may need work on the higher versions of Android.
Best Terminal Emulator ever for Android! Having been a Linux user and supporting this developer for a long long time, this app makes it all happen to anyone who wants that same experience as they did when Linux was first introduced. Android IS an OS based on the Linux Kernel and Jack has brought full functionality of it on your Android device. P.S. I suggest root users to install Busybox to get more than what they bargained for. Trust me it's worth it.
It's... okay Its a great tool and all but you will have to be familiar with both the Windows CLI and the Linux Shell. Even with that it doesnt have all the commands you want and directorys/files arnt color coded. Im certified network and OS specialist if u needed to know if this was valided from a source with experiance.
The special key sequences don't work. But what I found interesting is when you click on Special Keys, why doesn't it simply allow you to click on a hyperlink for the VolUp+E for example. That way if they key combination sequence doesn't work for whatever reason, you can still select it from a menu? (I have a Pixel XL running 7.1.2)
Great BUT I need help with something I am semi fluent in Linux command line so that is not my problem, I am trying to run a shell script that needs to be run without having to keep the app directly open. When I switch tab for even a second it says "Killed", and I haven't seen any options to avoid that. Anyone know how to fix this?
ONE OF THE BEST THINGS IVE EXER USED! First of all THANK YOU, I could not have ever fixed my tablet without this app and my Mac. This has the potential to be anything conceivable if you know your stuff and have the right binaries. Forget all these massive applications that do one thing, likely you can do it with this!
