    Hey everyone
    I was looking under addons for the fission rom manager and I found one that said "bash shell". Can someone explain what bash is and what it would be used for? Thanks

    It's called BASH is Born-Again SHell. Get it? It's like the normal shell, but more powerful. For example you can customize it (though you don't need to) through a text file at /etc/bash.bashrc. My favorite enhancement is the use of the D-pad to navigate through entered text.

    It doesn't run like a normal app. It's a replacement for the commandline shell.

    To use it, launch your favorite terminal apk, for example ConnectBot or Android Terminal Emulator and enter:
    Code:
    su
    bash

    It's for the command line interface. Do a google for BASH and you can see the commands that are part it. If you don't use the command line (terminal interface) then you probably don't care.
