"If you are so happy to own a android phone, you can
log in from remote using a reverse shell making all kinds of fun
possible. The android OS is not exactly Linux as we now it, but it
has a Linux kernel and can be tweaked to look and feel a lot like a
original Linux system.
"Reasons for using a reverse shell include: you can bypass
firewalls, you can connect to your phone without knowing the ip,
the connection is initiated from the phone so you don't need to
have a ssh server listening on your phone. Just think of all the
fun this makes possible!
"As the android phone has a build in shell, it's actually
possible to install a console emulator from android market, giving
you local shell access. Even gaining root access is really
"android root shell
"I would not replace su, but just create another program using a
name you only know yourself, making it a lot less easy for rogue
apps to "use" the su command. (password protected su anybody?)
