Hi guys,
I've created a working vim install script for android devices. need root. The vim binary comes from Lineage os that compiled it. To install vim, you have to extract the zip file attached below and run in a root shell install.sh.
To uninstall, run uninstall.sh
You need busybox, root access and optionnaly rate this thread 5 stars.
