    Bash can be used without root. Termux provides bash or you can use a static binary. I have built one for my personal use. Rooting is a device specific process, mostly preceded by unlocking bootloader. – Irfan Latif Dec 10 '18 at 22:23
  • Have a look around at some similar questions, just to understand how Android works and to get to know how it's changed a bit from Linux... Bash i believe on Android is Shell or /system/bin/sh ... stackoverflow.com/questions/8094562/ddg#8095453 – Gadget Guru Dec 10 '18 at 22:24

    @Zillinium Android's default shell i.e. /system/bin/sh is MirBSD Korn Shell (mksh), not Bash. – Irfan Latif Dec 10 '18 at 22:34
  • Oh ok... i just looked through the link above and realised the closest alternative is sh .. also rooting Samsung's is annoying .. are you familiar with Knox ? – Gadget Guru Dec 10 '18 at 22:51

If you understand the consequences of tripping Samsung's Knox security flag...

Then please following the rooting guide https://rootsamsung.com/root-samsung-galaxy-grand-prime-plus-sm-g532f

And then use the closest alternative... BusyBox - Android App

Alternatives are to run a Linux distribution on your Android and then run a BASH shell through that.
