    I have a rooted Samsung Galaxy Spica (i5700) running Android 2.1. Firstly, I would like to be able to use command line tools and run cli apps like vim, nano, alpine, cmus, etc. Is this possible? I know Android runs a modified Linux kernel, but I am unsure how far the comparisons between Android and Linux go. Secondly, I would like to run a newer system by installing a custom ROM. Any suggestions for my mobile brand and model?

    :) yes you can use it ... install "SGM BETA3" then use e.g. "adb shell" > bash, vim, etc.

    PS: maybe this little HowTo can also help you > [HowTo] Android Debug Bridge (adb)

    Thanks for the quick reply. I have "a Better Terminal App Pro" installed, as well as BusyBox. Is it possible for me to install cli apps before I try installing the custom ROM, or is installing a custom ROM a precondition for installing cli apps?
