Howto Adb Shell

adb shell is an application from the Android SDK.
Download it and install it for your platform.

Connect your phone via usb and enable debugging mode.

On your computer simply type:

adb shell

or
cd /whereever/youput/the/sdk
./adb shell

You are now in your phone. Be careful, you can now wreck shit.
To escape type:

exit

Some handy commands:

Reboot

./adb reboot

Remount Phone read/write

./adb remount

Delete Files

./adb shell rm /yourfile/youdonotwant

The above is very handy for when /system/app/Email.apk is pissing you off and force closing as the one packaged with Cyanogen 6.0.2 does.
