What's new in this version (1.0.44):

+ Improved Hungarian translation.

+ Added "Holo blue on black" text color preference.

+ Removed the "READ LOGS" permission. Some users were not willing to grant that permission to Android Terminal Emulator. They were worried that there might be sensitive information in a phone's logs. I don't want users to worry, so I removed the permission.

Developers who found the READ_LOGS permission useful will have to build their own versio


Access your Android's built-in Linux command line shell. Unleash your inner geek!

Works great! Pipe symbol still not accepted from stock htc Evo keyboard though. A fix for that and my comment would be "works perfect"!

@ JR that's why you root it

Just about everything on the phone is protected. Useless unless you want to root your phone.

Very nice app. I would appretiate integration of the SYM button on the HW keyboard (HTC Desire Z).
