    I look at TE like the command prompt on your computer. It's a no-gui way to input linux(?) commands in to your phone. If you're not rooted you probably don't need it

    That's what I kind of figured, but as of now I don't really see any need for it. Unless you guys know some useful commands...

    What rom are you running? It is useful for certain roms. I use it with project elite 4 to install certain extras like miui dialer.

    Bucking the stream here; I am. I see no need whatsoever for using a Terminal Emulator on your phone. I've had my A855 since 11/9/2009 and rooted it about 12/09/2009 and I _might_ have used a terminal emulator three times. Why? Because I'd rather use adb shell and my computer than try to type complicated syntax intensive commands on that tiny little keyboard.

    And just for the record not EVERY rom has custom script commands included with them.

    Hey everybody,
    I have a rooted Droid x, and I was just wonerding what the terminal emulator does. It just sits on my app screen and I have no idea what to do with it. I'm running liberty 1.5 if that has anything to do with it.
    Thanks!

    The Terminal Emulator is basically a like the Terminal you would find on a Linux computer. If you type "su" without the quotes you will get Superuser permissions. I wont get too in detail as their are way too many things you can do with it. If you don't really know what to do with it then you shouldn't have to worry about it, its not required really.

    I have a problem with the Terminal Emulator

    I am rooted

    I did watch the video on how to uninstall loaded apps

    when I start the Emulator the top of the screen is not blank like the video

    it says:
    export PATH=/data/local/bin:$PATH:.
    # #

    when I enter the command:

    mount -o rw,remount /system

    it gives me this:
    Usage: mount [-r] [-w] [-o options] [-type] device directory

    then I enter this:
    rm -r /system/app/Blockbuster.apk

    it tells me failed file is read only

    I have no idea where Im going wrong, or if its because the phone in the video is different from what Im using.

    You're not changing the system to read/write sucessfully, that is why you get the "file is read only" message. Try this:

    Code:
    mount -o remount,rw /dev/null /system
    good luck
