    Command line with Terminal Emulator

    I have been using terminal emulator to get to the Linux command line. I want to use commands like ifconfig to get my ip address.

    But don't have the rights. Tried overriding it by giving a superuser command (sudo) but still no luck.

    I want to be able to login as root or su on the command line...

    Do I have to root the phone? Please let me know if someone knows a hack for this. Is there a root password?

    Thanks...

    Yes, in order to do what you are trying to do, the phone would have to be rooted, which currently isn't possible.

    In the terminal use the busybox command.

    e.g. busybox ifconfig

    Interestingly enough, you're still not running as root for these commands. Try busybox su and busybox suid, you'll see.
