Quickly Execute Terminal Commands with Quick Terminal
If you’re anything like I am, you probably enter your device’s terminal every now and then in order to execute one of a handful of different commands. You don’t live in your terminal window, but the time you spend there could be optimized a bit. Thankfully, XDA Forum Member The Waswas‘s latest app Quick Terminal may be the perfect solution for such a problem.
Quick Terminal is a root-enabled app that does exactly what its title states. It’s a quick way of issuing terminal commands, simply and without the fuss. The app comes preloaded with various common use-case commands such as changing your MAC address, rebooting your device, and resetting WiFi. However, the real beauty of Quick Terminal is in the customization it allows. In addition to the built-in commands, you can program your own most commonly used terminal commands so that you only have to type them in one more time. You can even add your own scripts with the MyScripts panel.

Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
