    Just use ps, as for those other commands, they aren't installed on your phone, well kinda.

    Busybox provides a lot of the functionality that your wanting. Check this out.

    Mount /system read,write

    Now here is the magic

    - ln -s /system/bin/busybox /system/bin/more

    Now you have the more command, yay! For a full listing of busy box commands, just type in /system/bin/busybox and it will output the commands it was built with. Huzzah!
    Nice. Ping, kill, nslookup, ifconfig, much better. Thanks again.
    Glad I was able to help.

    Progress on modifying the droid 2 has been painfully slow. So I decided that I have to actually start contributing. Like the saying goes, if you want something done, do it yourself.

    Does pressing [ok]+k at the same time give you what you want? What are you trying to do?

    Trying to bring back my last command after set -o vi.
    [ok]+k doesn't work.

    Also I recommend using the busybox sh.

    The up arrow should give you what you want

    EDIT: Got it.

    Question

    So I was rooted with easyroot before the update and I really want to get rooted again. My problem has been that all I have are Macs. When I saw this thread I definitely got excited. So, my question is: will this work on Moto Droid? Also, I have easyroot, Rom manager, and Busybox still installed. Would I need to get rid of any of them that could cause complications? Thanks
