    I want to use the system up tuner app but my phone is not rootable. The only other alternative is to execute 3 adb shell commands but I cannot figure out how to get them to work on terminal emulator.( I am aware that I should be using cmd on pc I just don’t have access to mine rn) My question is is it possible to do on terminal emulator? And if so, how? The commands are...

    adb shell pm grant com.zacharee1.systemuituner android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS

    adb shell pm grant com.zacharee1.systemuituner android.permission.DUMP

    adb shell pm grant com.zacharee1.systemuituner android.permission.PACKAGE_USAGE_STATS

    In a terminal emulator, you're already in the shell (and adb is a program running in Windows), so try:

    pm grant com.zacharee1.systemuituner android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS

    pm grant com.zacharee1.systemuituner android.permission.DUMP

    pm grant com.zacharee1.systemuituner android.permission.PACKAGE_USAGE_STATS

    But the ROM probably has to be rooted to grant permissions that you normally need root to use.

    (Have you checked on XDA Forums to see if your phone is rootable?)

    Yeah. Terminal emulator didn’t work again, should I just use my pc?
    Edit: I just used my computer to do it and it’s working perfectly, thanks for trying to help me with my dumb question

    Glad you managed to get it done and thanks for the follow up! It'll be very helpful for other users trying to enable the UI Tuner.
