Terminal Emulator for Android

So here is another app named Terminal Emulator for Android, I test it on my vmos Chinese version, it’s running good.

you can use Terminal Emulator to connect you ssh server or bash your local device, just use su line command, then Terminal Emulator will ask for root permission, then you will get the full access permission on your phone.

You can use Terminal Emulator to do the bash and zsh shells, Edit files with nano and vim, Access servers over ssh.
