I downloaded a terminal emulator (a free one first then Better Terminal Emulator Pro") just to have it and carefully familiarize with the OS on this phone.
Before I installed fresh 1.0 when I opened it a screen with a lone "$" and would appear and function just as ADB SHELL does from my PC (XP).
After fresh the initial screen displays:
$ export PATH=/data/local/bin:$PATH
From this screen if I type "su" it goes to another screen titled "su request" and times out to a FC in about a minute or two.
Also in the Preferences menu the Command Line option is set to:
I can navigate into folders in "$" but no matter how deep I go "exit" closes the emulator instead of going back one level.
I am not using almquist shell, just android shell.
Any insight into what this means would be appreciated.
