Shell scripts for Android - need info

I thought I asked this before here but -
Could anyone point me to some good info on writing simple shell scripts for my Amazon Fire, running Fire OS 5.6.4.0? I’d prefer not to root the device.
I primarily want to set up some shell scripts to copy/move files from the the directories that Wyze puts stuff in.
thanks in advance

Thanks but that didn’t work on the Fire.

Sorry to hear that :confused: I thought the fire might be based on Linux I’ll ask around and see what I can find on Monday

Yes it is based on linux but it does not have a bash shell.
Thanks for helping.

On second thought this article might help you: https://www.google.com/amp/s/forum.xda-developers.com/fire-tv/general/run-bat-file-firestick-t3790921/amp/

They say “You can run any shell script on a Fire TV”

Thanks, I’m getting there - I had to find /system/bin/sh.

I must have read 10 articles before they pointed me there.

I last wrote script in unix about 1999 :grimacing:

Haha you might be a but rusty if the last time was in '99. At least you’re making progress! Glad to hear it :slight_smile:

I used this procedure to sideload onto my Fire Tablet 7:
