I have searched for this but till now I have not found any tasker that would be able to do this, so I decided to ask here.

Till now I have been using Trigger Pro as my favorite tasker but it lacks in advance usage, like run certain scripts over shell when triggered. I have been just able to run one script over Terminal app, by running a command when it launches that app, but through this I am just able to launch one script =/.

So any of you knows way to do this?

  • Can you tell us, why do you want to run your script visibly? That is it say, why not deploy a method that would silently run the script? Tasker can do this well, so as Automate from LlamaLab.

This can be easily achieved by using Tasker.


  • Create a named task.

  • A1: Code >> Run Shell [Command: (insert any code you wish to run) Store Output: (insert any variable which will retain the value of ouput - stdout) Store errors in : (insert a variable which stores errors - stderr)]

  • Tap back to exit
  • Link your task to your profile.

Note: for shell commands that require root you have to the tick the 'use root' option
