Linux Terminal Emulator is an application that lets you emulate the Linux operating system on your Android device, which means you'll be able to use Linux command lines.
It's important to notice that this app doesn't emulate video games. Instead, it lets you access the Linux command line and execute them directly from your Android device. This way, you can access your SD memory card and install and execute Linux commands.
The application will let you modify different parameters such as color and size of fonts, the type of keyboard you want to use, and even the shell. You can also add widgets with direct access to your desktop.
As mentioned by the application's developers, Linux Terminal Emulator can't be used to root a device, nor can it be used to emulate any kind of video game.
Android Terminal Emulator is not an application for everyone and is better for users who can use Linux fluently. If you can't, it's probably not worth your time.
Access your Android's built-in Linux command line shell. Unleash your inner geek!
This is a new version of the popular "Linux Terminal Emulator" application. Same great program, just with a new name.

+ You need to know (or be willing to learn) how to use the Linux command line to use this app.
+ You may want to install a set of command line utilities like "Busy Box" or "Debian chroot" in order to add commands beyond the commands that come built into your Android device.
+ If you get a -505 error when trying to install this app under Android 5.0, it means that some other app is using the same permissions. You will have to uninstall the other app in order to install Terminal Emulator for Android. (People tell me that "jrummy's Toolbox Pro" causes this problem.)
