This app requires root!This app WILL NOT give you root! It installs a sudo script to your system so you can have a more desktop style approach at using root in adb shell and Terminal Emulator.
Youll notice that the app hasnt been updated in a very long time. Dont worry, its not abandoned, its just already fleshed out. We will continue to bring bugfixes, updates, and support as its required. Currently, there are no bugs that were aware of, it works perfectly on the latest versions of Android, and theres no features we want to add. As a result, it hasnt been updated for almost an entire year because there isnt really anything to do. We will of course be bringing support for Android 6.0 as soon as it drops and continuously providing bugfixes as theyre required.

This will install a sudo script to your /system/
Some devices do not support the normal install mode because they have kernel write protection. Version 2.0+ have a special recovery install mode that can work around this issue on such devices.

Why would you want this?1. For any power user who uses Linux or Mac OS X on their computer, you will know the sudo command and you may often type sudo instead of su -c, out of habit, in adb shell or Terminal Emulator. This will let you use sudo like you would on your PC.2. Some of my other apps rely on this because Android is kinda difficult to use root commands in code. This makes it much easier since you dont have to deal with quotes like you do with the old fashioned su -c command.
