possibilities with termux

hi guys,

i just got a new 5.5" sony phone which im delighted with
i got an app that turns the screen sideways and am using a bluetooth keyboard and mouse...its awesome!!!

i installed termux and see it is a cool terminal...
now it obviously doesnt have full bash features etc
though i read a lot such as openssh can be installed
and i just wondered what the possibilities could be with this

are any of you using it...?

It's not just an app, but rather an environment.

I guess it's OK for those with locked phones, however ... I don't see the advantage over a full chroot with *all* debian packages.

what? so you can do that with a phone? can you explain more...

i know chroot is to change the apparent root for a running process...and all debian packages..

sorry im not with you.
