Android Shell

Execute shell commands on Android.

API License Maven Central

Download the latest AAR or grab via Gradle:

compile 'com.jaredrummler:android-shell:1.0.0'


Usage

Common utility functions include:

CommandResult Shell.run(String shell, String... commands)
CommandResult Shell.SH.run(String... commands)
CommandResult Shell.SU.run(String... commands)

The result will contains the exit code, standard output (stdout), and standard error (stderr).

Example of running a command as root:

CommandResult result = Shell.SU.run("id");
if (result.isSuccessful()) {
  System.out.println(result.getStdout());
  // Example output on a rooted device:
  // uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root) context=u:r:init:s0
}

You can open multiple shell instances using

Shell.Builder
or
Shell.Console.Builder
. Calling
Shell.SU.run(String... commands)
will keep a su session open in the background so additional calls will not create new superuser requests.
