    Howdy folks, not exactly sure which forum this belongs, but this seemed appropriate. I'm debating getting an Android phone in the near future, but sadly don't know anyone locally where I can toy with the OS, see if I like it. So I downloaded the SDK and have been tinkering with the emulator. With the emulator you can start it with the -shell flag to get a root shell into the phone, now my question is can something like that be done with a real phone or is that simply a dev tool with the emulator?

    Thanks :)

    Hmm... well I'm mostly looking at that new phone, Agora from Kogan that runs Android. Though a dev phone may not be a terrible idea either. I'm a Linux nut, and by nature I like to tinker with things (read: break them then get mad) hehe.
