Learn Android Linux Command Line Shell

Talking about the android linux shell command we are lead to an existing application in android lets see bottom first.

There may be some people who do not yet know one of this program, yes android terminal emulator is a built-in Access to Linux shell command line Your Android, so here we could do some command like in command prompt in windows, well in this latest version of the android terminal emulator offers a few additional features like v 1.0.60 new features:

+ A "Term" widget lets you create a launcher icon for your favorite commands. Long-press on the desktop, press the Widget, press Term, fill dialog box.


+ A "term here" the intent lets you open Android Terminal Emulator in the specified directory. Work with third-party file manager. Select "term here" in the "share" menu of file manager to the directory.

+ Auto-Linkification now need a "http://" or "https://" in front of the link. 

+ Improved language translation France.


Well, but there are a few things you need to consider before using this application

+ If you have difficulty inserting the text, try to install free "Keyboard IME Hackers". (Especially if you have a HTC or Samsung device.)

+ This application is not an emulator games.

+ This application will not help you eradicate your phone or change your phone's IMIE.

+ You need to know (or willing to learn) how to use the command line Linux for using this application.

+ You may want to install a set of command line utilities such as "Busy Box" to add command outside of a command that comes built into your Android device.

for a mere additional information I will tell a few commands on a terminal emulator such as:
  • cat - look, modify or merge files. You can also copy the file with this command with "read" to another file, instead of to the screen.
  • cd - change from one directory to another
  • cp - Copy files from one location to another
  • dd - a copy of the appropriate location to another. Can be either an entire drive, folders, etc.
  • dd if = of =. using input file and output file.
  • exit - exit from the shell you get when you type su you start the shell.
  • ls - showing all the files in a directory with try ls - l too.
  • mv - Move file from one location to another. At the same time you can change the file name.
  • su - User successors. We type this to switch to the root user. You need to type this command first to do a lot of other commands.
  • tar - creates an archive recorded. Compress files like WinZip, 7zip, winrar and other tar/? for details.
  • rm - followed by the name of the file by deleting the file sync-synchronize data on disk with the data in the memory. We are of this type before the reboot to make sure we've got all the data written
  • df - how much free disk space. In linux you can add the switch "df -h" but " -h" does nothing for me on the Android. top-like task manager, it displays the processes that are running. in the Linux button q quit. On Android I do not know how to make it stop other than closing the app. uptime – displays how long it has been since you last rebooted the system.
  • busybox - tools that combine many linux commands into a compact file. It displays all the typing commands that you can use.

  • busybox df - much easier to read the display of free diskspace. This view shows how full ( use % ) of each file system.
