    I'm good. Gym, kids to school, hubby gone... I'm at work payroll Monday.... Blah blah blah...

    X something is utilizing my su called shell? Took a screenshot. The su permissions don't say anything about shell... Huh?

    K'lin, I can't be sure but it's most likely that shell refers to a system process that is accessing using SU permissions, it could be related to any of your SU/root required apps. Maybe Trent knows more on this, don't panic just yet though.

    Ah, most likely terminal emulator as they can be referred to as shells (along the lines of a self contained command line interface where you can type commands to achieve a desired effect IE push (copy) an .apk file from your internal storage to external sd card etc)

    Yep, X is right, it's just system processes. For example, on CNA ROM (or just about any other), you hit the "Reboot" option (this is added into the ROM), and it'll ask Shell for Su access.

    Thanks for the confirmation dread, I was assuming it was a similar set up to the windows processes and the cmd shell. I don't know much linuxy stuff apart from what I've learned thru using my old galaxy portal so i just live n learn. :thumbup:

    Honestly, I'm not terribly versed myself. I recall back in the days of rooting my Droid that folks would refer to having "shell access" but not root access. As in, you could have access to system files, but you couldn't modify them. I hope I'm correct in this. :eek:

    Yea sounds about right, shell access effectively being read only.

    I have swapper 2 enabled and super user grants it shell access in order to run in the background without being prompted.

    Glad we got the "phone post " out of the way today. So, now on to bigger and better. Anyone want to stand in for me today? My 13y/o has a football meeting and Dad is gone. Where are the days football was Sunday and Monday night only. It's everyday! Literally EVERYDAY !

    Ok... now What's for dinner ?

    I'll be the boys father for the day, but they might look at me funny. :D

    Meatball Po`boys last night. Can't have the same thing 2 days in a row. I have some crab that may need my attention though. Maybe a crab salad sandwich will do trick. I have a mini baguette left.... hmmmm with a huge slice of avocado.... a nice white wine.... and a fruit salad? ....

    Yes I do believe I have my answer.

    Thanks X.... Don't know what I would do without you!
