Android :: BusyBox - How To Use Terminal IP Command?

Sep 16, 2009

I'm using a Google phone running Android, and I need to figure out how to use the terminal's
'ip' command. I found out that Android uses BusyBox in its terminal, but I can't find any help or tutorials or any information regarding it other than the basic information given in the terminal help. Can anyone point me to a site that would give me more information on how to use the commands, or tell me how to use the 'IP' command if you are familiar with it?

Motorola Droid :: Using The Terminal Emulator And Pro - Unrecognized Command

Feb 12, 2010

How much are you using the terminal, and what kind of stuff do you use it for? Which emulator are you using? I like the idea of tinkering with command line on my phone, using it to do simple stuff, partly as a fun way to get reacquainted with it, as I use to use command line a little bit with XP and ubuntu. I've batted around between Better Terminal Emulator Pro and Terminal Emulator. One confusing thing is that they seem to use different commands. For example, in terminal emulator the help command brings up a help menu, in TEP it is unrecognized as a command. What accounts for these differences? Lastly, any suggestions for lists of commands and tips for using them, in a way that will work with these emulators?

Samsung Captivate :: Wifi - Error 'mmc1 Got Command Interrupt 0x00060001 Even Though No Command Operation Was In Progress

Sep 6, 2010

I have a rooted samsung captivate with sideloading enabled. After experimenting with different wifi tethering apps from the unofficial market, I began experiencing difficulties with my wifi connection. Even after uninstalling every app that I thought was changing the wifi state, the problem still persists. I can turn on the wifi and it will act normally for about 30 seconds before turning off without user intervention. In dmesg, the error is as follows: 'mmc1: Got command interrupt 0x00060001 even though no command operation was in progress.' Is this caused by an app or is this a more complicated problem?

Aug 10, 2010

So I have used the one click root thingy. Have the superuser app. Tested. I have root (look screenshot). Now I want to install busy box. When I got the app from market to install the latest I got this. What I want to know. Is it safe and if so whats safe to erase from the system folder.

Problem is other apps like the cache cleaner doesnt find busybox installed even if I do it via titanium app.

HTC Desire :: BusyBox Not Working - How To Install 2.2?

Sep 21, 2010

I'd like to install rooted 2.2 on my Desire as per Lekky's guide, but there's a problem with BusyBox - it doesn't currently work with the Desire. As most of the root apps seem to need BusyBox to run (including Titanium), should I just wait for a fixed version of BusyBox before trying to upgrade to 2.2, or using any other rom for that matter? Is there an alternative method I could use? Also, my Desire is on 3UK network. Do I need to use a goldcard to upgrade to 2.2/ install another rom? I'm not clear on this bit.

Motorola Droid :: Busybox Working For Explorer On PC

Dec 10, 2009

If you are rooted try this out.

Step 1) download busybox binary to your adb tools directory
Step 2) cd to your adb tools directory
Step 3) adb push busybox /data/local/busybox
Step 4) adb shell
Step 5) cd /data/local
Step 6) chmod 755 busybox
Step 7) ./busybox

Now to have this run so droid explorer and detect your phone and so you can use busybox (ie so its in your PATH) run this.
Step 8) mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
Step 9) /data/local/busybox cp /data/local/busybox /system/bin
Step 10) mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
Step 11) sync
Step 12) reboot

Download Links:
Droid Explorer: Droid Explorer
busybox: Download busybox.zip from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way
Disclaimer- I put this together really quick so please only try if you know what you are doing so I can save my butt from any problems that may come of my or your own error.

Motorola Milestone :: How To Install Busybox To Android 2.1?

May 10, 2010

I've been looking to install busybox on UK Milestone 2.1 and have found only a few pages of instructions, but all of these seem to come up with errors, I dunno if its the new firmware or just something I'm doing wrong with ADB. I'm fairly new at this but I know my way around flashing and had a shot at ADB so I'm not entirely a newbie. Anyone know of any (working) how-to's for busybox?

Android :: BusyBox Installation - No ADB Tools Directory

Dec 16, 2009

Yes my phone is rooted. Trying to run metamorph on the droid but I apparently need busybox first. I am having problems installing it. I tried to follow the directions:

cd to your adb tools directory
adb push busybox /data/local/busybox
adb shell
su
cd /data/local
chmod 755 busybox
./busybox
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
mkdir /system/xbin
/data/local/busybox cp /data/local/busybox /system/xbin
/data/local/busybox cp /data/local/busybox /system/bin
cd /system/xbin
busybox --install .
mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
sync
reboot

I don't have an adb tools directory and adb isn't even a command on my phone. There has to be something I am missing. Also, if I get those working, how would I get the file where it needs to be? I tried copying it from my SD card into the directory, but it never shows up.

Motorola Droid :: Rooting And Installing BusyBox With Mac?

Mar 26, 2010

I've been reading some info about rooting a droid here and at rootyourdroid.info, probably going to buy one this afternoon since the incredible isn't out yet. Rooting seems to be pretty universal between PC/Mac, but when it gets to the USB debugging/Busybox install it appears a PC is required. Anyone know if this can be done from a Mac or a Linux box? I don't currently have a Windows computer anywhere in the house, and don't really want to use my work laptop for this if I don't have to.

Motorola Droid :: Put Busybox - Making Directory On Phone

Feb 12, 2010

I just got my droid last week and decided to root it and try to get a little crazy with it. However I'm very new, obviously, to the droid and to linux. I just got ubuntu for my computer yesterday and already have it on there and have been working with it a little trying to get things settled. So far I'm very happy with both, but I'm also having some trouble, hence the following...

Well I'm trying to put busybox on my droid. I've got it on there but I'm having problems with making a directory on my phone, which I need to do to continue.

Anyway, what's happening is, ill put in mkdir /system/xbin and it returns "mkdir failed. Read only filesystem." This is after Ive already launched busybox. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong.

HTC Eris :: Terminal Emulator Vs Adb

Sep 19, 2010

So I hear a lot of talk about "pushing" things with adb shell, and from what I've read I believe this requires a PC? If I have a Mac, and want to perform some of these actions, can they be done with the terminal emulator, and if so, do I just copy exactly the directions for adb or do I have to change them slightly? And yes, that was quite the run-on sentence, my English teachers would probably cringe...

HTC EVO 4G : Terminal Emulator After Unrevoked

Nov 11, 2010

Having trouble figuring out how to make terminal emulator work. I'm trying to setup Collin_Phone's battery tweak according to these instructions: [GUIDE][UPDATE] Try the battery tweak with Myn's RLS3! - xda-developers but when i type in batt-cfg, it tells me something like command not found so i cannot move on into the later steps.My questions are:

1)should i have done something in particular to setup terminal emulator before running it?

2)can TE even work on my phone since i didn't use ADB to root, but unrevoked instead?

3) Lastly can i still somehow install/hook up into ADB even though i used unrevoked? There are still some functions I'd like to try out that i dont think i can without a direct link to my PC.

LG Ally : Terminal For Velocity

Sep 14, 2010

I just compiled a very small theme to test the waters. Its basically only an edit of the status bar, battery icon, browser background, and for no reason what so ever made the gtalk icon grey scale.Like I said, testing the waters here and only did a tiny bit of modifying. When Velocity 0.2 comes out I will be making a more detailed theme. This is just something to throw on your rom while you wait.Note: This will not completely replace your current theme if you have one. This theme will work best when installed on the stock theme.Beautiful Widgets and launcherpro not included.

HTC Desire :: Terminal Rebooting - Won't Go Into Recovery

Now obviously I'll be sending back for repair but what are the chances (given that it won't boot at all now) that they'll know the phone has been rooted and refuse to fix it?

Motorola Droid X : Using Terminal Emulator

Oct 21, 2010

I'm very intimidated by terminal emulator because I've never used such a thing and it seems like a powerful tool.Many of the roms I'm considering offer special scripts (like Overclock or switch apps) that I'd like to be able to use.Would someone mind sharing exactly step by step how to use terminal emulator to install a program or use a custom script.Are there settings in terminal emulator that I should adjust? Basically I open TE and see a blue screen (yes reminds me of BSOD).Then what.just type the script instructions verbatim? After typing do I use the enter key to run?I'm looking at Fab's Apex Rom.Maybe that will help give an idea as to what options/scripts I'd like to be able to tinker with.Maybe a short video tutorial would help?

HTC EVO 4G :: Evo 4g Terminal / CLI - Can Delete Unwanted Stock Application?

Jun 6, 2010

I don't know the name of the method I used but its the one that calls for you to place the file called "PC36IMG.zip" on the root of your sd card and then reboot into the boot loader. I followed the instruction and it seemed to flash ok, but now i'm trying to find out where to find the terminal/CLI so I can delete unwanted stock app like amazon music shop or nascar tv. All the instructions say to open the terminal or CLI and type in a particular path in order to delete the apks that those apps use. The problem is the guides never say where to find the terminal. Is it somewhere on the phone? Is it something I download, do i need to connect the phone to a linux computer to find the terminal?

(2) Also, the characters I type are not being displayed properly. For example, typing "cd" (for change directory), shows "^P".

Motorola Droid X :: Rooting With Better Terminal Emulator

Sep 16, 2010

After installing 2.2 ver 2.3.13, I erased cache and personal data (shouldn't have I know but the step by step said to do so) and lost my root somehow kinda. Easy Root said I was rooted, but most of my root apps except for Drocap didn't work , saying they needed root access. After typing su in Better terminal, it said su permission denied. A buddy of mine gave me the zip Droid2root (said it was the same for Droid 2 and X), he also gave me a link to a SWEET step by step using an emulator and then "force closing" the emulator then going back to it and finishing the typing of the rest of the commands. It worked great until, I did a factory rest to try to fix a minor problem I had with my contacts shortcut force closing on me. Well, after the reset, I lost root again, but I couldn't find the link again either. If anyone knows the link, PLEASE, PLEASE let me know. The title had something like "rooting the lazy or easy way" in it, and again it used an emulator.

Even when I try adb shell though my emulator it says: /data/data/com.magicandroidapps.bettertermpro/bin/sh:adb: Permission denied
