Android :: How To Format Second Partition On SD Card Using Terminal Emulator?

Feb 1, 2010

How to format the second partition on an SD Card using terminal emulator?I have been trying to format the second partition I created on an sd card using the terminal emulator.I have tried all the normal mkfs, mkpartfs, mkdosfs all of them say "<command>: not found".Though 'dd' works and clears the data it also destroys the File Allocation Table.I was trying to format the second partition of the sd card so that I can still use the sd card on my windows machine and view the files in the second partition.

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.

General :: Correct Format / Partition Layout For USB To Auto Mount?

Apr 25, 2014

I've got a 3TB external drive drive hooked up to my Ouya running CM11 (Android 4.4)

I run Nzbget and Transmission in optware, and use CM primarily as a vehicle for XBMC so I need the space.

I had it in 2 ext4 partitions which needed a init script to mount under the stock OS.

I was hopping to get it working in a less hacky manner under CM.

I tried with the two parts, and no go so i redid it with one big partition with root as the UID and sdcard_rw as the GID.

Still no dice. I can access it in File Manager with elevated permissions, but no go in XBMC or other apps.

Also tried one big exFAT partioning with no luck.

I plugged in an 8g ntfs drive I had and it automounted it no problem.

What is the right way to configure the drive? We're a Linux household so sticking with ext2/3/4 would be ideal. NTFS I would like to avoid.

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?

Android : Telnet From Terminal Emulator

May 3, 2010

I would like to do some simple things from the command line on my HTC desire such as telnet, DNS lookup and looking at ARP Tables, DHCP client functions etc. (for testing network services as part of my job, typical things such as testing SMTP access or testing connections to web server etc. e.g. using telnet {host} {port}) Telnet from the terminal seems to require root access (permission denied) I haven't rooted my HTC Desire and don't intend to root it at present unless I have to.I'm wondering how droid applications such as telnet clients etc. gain access without root and hence how I can?

Building Android Terminal Emulator?

Nov 1, 2011

I am doing a project where we have to use the Android Terminal Emulator. I downloaded the the Jackpal Android Terminal Emulator from github and using the instructions in the document to build the terminal emulator.

[code].....

I am having trouble installing the package in the first step itself, i.e. building the ndk shared libraries.

According to the instructions provided:

Build the shared library:

cd <the-android-terminal-emulator-directory>
<path-to-the-android-ndk>/ndk-build

Accordingly, I typed the following in my cmd

C:>cd androidterm
C:androidterm>android-ndk-r6b/ndk-build

I got the following error message:

'android-ndk-r6b' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

I am still learning Android and have never worked with the command line before. Is it a problem with the way I have typed the command?

General :: Terminal Emulator Widget?

Nov 1, 2011

I'd like to get a home screen terminal widget if that's possible. Literally just a text box on the home screen that I can run shell commands with.With that said:

1. Is there such an app in existence already?

2. Would there be any software/hardware limitations that would prevent me from developing one? I don't want to start trying to develop it and then find out that it was impossible from the start.

General :: Changing Ext4 Partition To Swap Without Having To Format Entire SDCard?

Apr 27, 2013

One of devs from my device had told us that he'll move system and data images from sdcard to SD ext, but actually he left before doing this so now I'm stuck with useless 5gb ext4 partition on my scard. I'd format it and then change partitions if my sdcard wouldn't be filled with over 20GB of various files. Is it possible to change the size of the second partition to about 500 MB and turn it from ext4 to swap without formatting entire sdcard?

Android :: Dev Tools / Terminal Emulator On Sdcard

Apr 23, 2010

Through Android Emulator, I am trying to create a folder using dev tools > Terminal Emulator. The terminal emulator gets launched with the SHELL PROMPT. (1) However, when I try to type a command, at the bottom of the screen, some suggestions are shown - but in CHINESE CHARACTERS. Dont know why CHINESE? (2) Also, the characters I type are not being displayed properly. For example, typing "cd" (for change directory), shows "^P". I need to go to the sdcard folder using "cd sdcard" and create a directory using "mkdir" and then copy some files into it.

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

Motorola Droid : Barnacle And Terminal Emulator

I got an app called Barnacle Wifi Tether and when I try to run the app, it says permission denied and it doesn't ask for superuser permission. When I go into terminal emulator and type in su it says permission denied.I forget the code to manually give SU to something like Barnacle...I'm tech savvy but not Droid savvy yet so be gentle!

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?

General :: Can Flash Factory Image Through Terminal Emulator

Jul 26, 2013

I have a Nexus 4 which is bootloader unlocked and rooted. The USB port is partially faulty - it charges only at USB speed and is not detected as a device on my laptop. I've tried multiple cables, wall sockets and computers.

I do however have TWRP already installed.

Considering that fastboot from the PC is not an option (becase of the USB issue), can I run the fastboot commands inside the Terminal Command section of TWRP to flash a factory image of Android 4.3 ?

I'm asking because I've only seen guides to install recoveries, not ROMs via Terminal Command on phone.

General :: Install APK From Terminal Emulator From Android Phone Running Jelly Bean?

Jul 24, 2012

I have Samsung Galaxy ACE which is rooted. Till y'day I was using CM9 Beta 8 ICS 4.0.4 and it was working well.

I installed CM10 JB for Galaxy Ace alpha1 from "hxxp://maclaw.pl/?page_id=180#comment-3642"

Now the problem is, JB doesn't have File Manager installed and I need to install TB to revert my backups.

Due to some unknown reason I am not able to access internet on my device either through GPRS or 3G connection.

I am desperately looking for a way to access my SDCARD wherein I have all my apk's which I can install however, without File Manager I am not sure how to install an apk.

I did some google search and came across topics about installing apk using Android SDK etc.. however I would not want to work on SDK as I feel its bit tedious job for me.

I also tried Android Injector however that didnt work even if I have enabled USB debugging Mode for adb + apps.

Now, I am hoping that, I can use the Terminal Emulator which is preinstalledo n my phone to install apk present on my sdcard.

However, I am not sure how to do that, what are the steps to install apk present on my sdcard from Terminal Emulator available on my phone.

Here are some of the screen captures [URL] ......

HTC Eris :: How To Partition SD Card

Jul 23, 2010

This is for everyone who gets the "Insufficient space available" message when trying to install an app on a ROM with Apps2SD support. You need to partition your SD card! Here are steps on how to partition your SD card.

1. BACKUP your SD card! Partitioning will erase everything on your SD card. Mount your Eris to your computer and copy everything on your SD card into a separate folder on your computer.
2. Boot into recovery. (Hold the Volume up and Power button at the same time)
3. When you are in recovery, choose Partition sdcard.
4. Select Partition SD
5. Choose your swap size. (I chose 32MB)
6. Select the size of your partition. (I chose 512MB)
7. After partitioning, choose SD:ext2 to ext3 from the Partition sdcard menu.
8. Reboot your phone.
9. Make sure you have Apps2SD checked under Settings > Applications. (You don't have to do this with some ROMs)
10. To check if you have partitioned your SD card correctly, go to Settings > SD card & phone storage > SD card secondary. (Some ROMs don't show this)
11. Copy your backup of your SD card back to your SD card.
12. You can now run Apps2SD in any ROM that supports it.

When flashing ROMs with Apps2SD support, you no longer have to reinstall your apps.
