Required:
✔ Android Terminal Emulator Application
After having a rooted phone for years, I know that there are plenty of applications that allow users to customize their phones; however, when I recently bought a brand new phone this year, I decided not to root it and I realized the main reason for rooting my phone was simply to obtain more linux tools. I made this simple application in order to help users simply install BusyBox without the hassle of being rooted!

Yes

Yes, this is why I made this application. Since most people's phones are not rooted, if you have chmod install on your phone, which most Android phones come with it, you can download and test my application out. It will download and let you use the binaries.

You only need chmod and a terminal you execute the binaries.

Nano does not work and possibly others too, and isn't it possible to use ~/.bash_profie or similar to avoid ./ behavior?

Oh and don't tell me to "just use vi", because I'm not.

I’ve been asked several times.. Why not sign into Google? I hope this will better help explain my thoughts on the matter, thank you.

It might seem strange to most people.. especially since I bought a "Google" device, but I'm trying to go "Googleless" this time around. With Google Reader nearing its end, AdBlock being blocked, increased DRM/licensing, biased search results, unfair forfeiture and distribution of AdSense revenue and submission to big brother, I think it may be best to cut my dependence sooner rather than later.

I've been a huge fan of Google since their early days of "Don't be evil" but as time passes I find myself questioning some of their practices.

It amazes me that no one sees the writing on the wall. I mean, people complain about other companies and their walled gardens but turn a blind eye to the Android ecosystem.

I’ve spent the last three days trying to download all my apps outside Google Play and it’s very difficult. So few authors post their apps anywhere else. I realize that most downloads occur there, but I don’t see how it would be so terrible to offer a torrent or file locker link as a backup. In the end you’re punished for trying to be independent of Google, left with only 3rd party sites and hashtags to try and get legit files.

Well, that way you can track the installs. And the more installs the better is the position in the search results.

Thank you for helping explain! Besides tracking installs using Google's Developer Dashboard, it is very important I keep application installs within trusted markets in order to ensure customer safety of the actual product as well as following Google's policies.

    libcurses.so

    Hello,

    As of now, nano needs the "libcurses.so" shared library in which needs to be installed. You will most likely need root for this operation. I am trying to add more and new features!
