★ BitCubate Bash Shell X Installer installs GNU bash 4.2 to your Android device ★

Geared towards BusyBox and Superuser Users

GNU Bash is the default shell found on GNU/Linux and Macs. Now you can use it on your Android device.

Compatible with all versions of Android from Gingerbread to Android L.

Works on all ARM, Intel x86 and MIPS based devices of all types such as Phones, Tablets, TV's, Wear and Car.

Requires Groot to Install. No Groot to try.

Back Story: Being a GNU/Linux geek I found it hard to find a easy and trustable way to get GNU bash running on my Android Phone. So I ported and cross compiled bash to Android and made a Ad free safe installer.

Sucks to say but if you like my work, please consider purchasing the X+ version or a donation.
