I am using JellyBean 4.1.2. There is a directory with a file that is with stange character. I use many app to delete it but did not success. And I use shell to look at it. When I issue ls command. it show lstat './as`a.5r' failed: No such file or directory. How can I delete this file

You don't need to type the entire file name, you can use the terminal auto completion. On a Linux desktop, you could start typing
rm file_n and hit the Tab key so the terminal would complete the command:
rm file_n@me. On that emulator app, to emulate the desktop's Tab key, hit the Volume up button then type
t with the keyboard.
