I have a Sprint LG G3 running Android 4.4.2. I'm using jackpal's terminal emulator. It respawns after I close the app. I see the terminal process and the child shell but killing that way seems too manual. The only workaround I've found is rebooting. Any better ideas, or should I stop caring? I mean, maybe the load on the OS is so small from the app that it doesn't matter if I can't kill it without a reboot. What do you think?

  • Have you tried closing each window from the dropdown list at the top? – aureljared Sep 7 '14 at 2:39
  • Yes. No joy. I only have one window open in the terminal emulator. When I close it, the app closes temporarily, then it reappears in the "recent apps" list. I also get a un-swipable notification: "Terminal session is running." When I tap on either the thumbnail or the notification, there's Window 1 back again from the undead. – tbc0 Sep 7 '14 at 3:43
  • Did you try am force-stop jackpal.androidterm or OS Monitor to kill it? – Firelord Jun 30 '15 at 23:02
  • Never heard of either one, thank you. I haven't used a terminal in months but will report back when I try. – tbc0 Jul 2 '15 at 3:00
  • Open settings > apps > Terminal Emulator > Force Stop .. After you have force stopped the app, wipe the data and cache then close app info settings, Try to open the app again and see if it closes normally – Gadget Guru Mar 24 '18 at 21:44

There should be an "X" at the top of your screen. Just tap it.

  • It just re opens. – tbc0 Aug 24 '16 at 16:06
