    Hi all.

    I want to run some scripts in BB. When I open the emu and type su and hit enter, it brings up an "Edit Text" dialog box with the options to copy or paste and it won't let me proceed. (I have successfully done it before on another ROM).

    Am I doing something wrong? Can I run scripts using Root Explorer and how? Is there another emu you would recommend?

    Thanks.

    When you open Terminal Emu, is the initial command:
    exportPath=/data/local/bin:$PATH ... and then a dollar sign?

    Looks like a bug with his latest update. I just updated, and now it does this :(

    Wow, it's really you! Thanks for all of your work.

    Thanks for the prompt reply.

    Any workaround for this issue? would a different emu work?

    All I really want to do is delete some of the native apps to free up some memory. Should I just use Root Explorer to do this?

    Thanks again.

    AWESOME!! That worked! Does running a script to remove an app uninstall the app or just hide it?

    Long hold of enter is still bringing up said bug. Back to ADB until this is taken care of.

    Yep, new update is working fine here as well. You may need to uninstall then reinstall.
