Android Terminal Emulator unlocks Android’s Linux command line. Getting into this shell allows you to view information and make changes to the operating system that you otherwise just cannot do. It is an app that you can install on your phone or tablet. You may have to root your device to get Android Terminal Emulator to work fully as some of the commands and functions require it. This app is open source and will unavoidably change and make the current version obsolete. Some people have used it simply to see and familiarize themselves with the Android internal filing structure.
If you’ve rooted your mobile device and also have Super User permissions you’ll be able to look forward to being able to change just about anything, well, that is if you know how! The emulator app is super handy to remove factory installed bloatware that slows down your phone and causes all sorts of problems. I have a Verizon phone that I’ve flashed over to Cricket and I can’t stand all the native apps that I can’t get rid of. I will be rooting, installing Android Terminal Emulator and removing all the crap that Verizon does to try to keep me in their loop that I was never even in.
Many people claim that if you have a bluetooth keyboard to connect to your phone and/or tablet to use with this app that it really makes a difference and lets you do more commands that you just can’t do with the on-screen keyboard. Some phones have interesting issues such as the letters getting stuck in an upper case without a way to lower the case.
I recommend this Terminal Emulator for your Android device if you want to remove bloatware, change factory settings, and any other changes to the way that your phone works.
