Thanks for sharing the library and providing a demo app.

I don't have any rooted phones at the moment since I only develop for non-rooted devices so I have not been able to tested it. The library code looks pretty good.

I think it would be useful for making tools for rooted phones although that means the size of target audience is a bit limited.

Cheers,

bluejay

Thanks for the library.

I tried to run a reboot command but it didn't ask a root permission. I'm using Superuser.

Yes. I'm on a rooted stock ICS ROM.

Thanks Fairy,

"InstallApk" works for me.

Could you elaborate the difference between:
◦execRootCmd (cmd As String) As String
◦execRootCmdSilent (cmd As String) As Int

I am guessing one is for command that returns a string and the other for command that returns Int ?
What is the format for the cmd string, could you give an example ?

Thanks again.

something like:cat,cp,mkdir and other shell command

@icefairy333 great job!

it would be nice if it implements the following commands:

FileExist to check if a file exists
DirExist to verify whether a directory exists
cp to copy one or more files
mv to move one or more files
rm to delete one or more files

could you do?

thank you very much
