    I am looking at terminal emulator and better terminal emulator pro. MY question is, is it possible to run adb commands from these apps. If so since my phone is already rooted could I think "activate" a2sd via the terminal emulator instead of hooking it up to a pc?

    Well, the adb (Android debug bridge) has a client component and a server component that both run on your development machine (i.e., your PC).

    The adb server (on your PC) communicates to the adb daemon on your phone. There is not an adb client on the phone (in busybox). There is the adbd daemon, but that is not what you want.

    I don't know what is involved in activating a2sd, but no, you can't invoke adb from your phone's terminal emulator shell.
