How do I root the Android emulator? I need root to install an .apk file on the emulator.
Create a root shell console on the current terminal. It differs from the
adb shellcommand in the following ways:
- It creates a root shell that allows you to modify many parts of the system.
- It works even if the adb daemon in the emulated system is broken.
- Pressing Ctrl+C (⌘C) stops the emulator, instead of the shell.
