Mining with Termux

Termux is an Android terminal emulator and Linux environment app. A minimal base system is installed initially and additional packages can be installed using the APT package manager.

Download

Configuration

Upon downloading and installing, open the app run the following commands:

apt update
apt install wget cmake libuv-dev clang nano
wget "https://github.com/xmrig/xmrig/archive/v2.14.1.tar.gz" or wget "https://is.gd/QOZi6d"
tar xzvf v2.14.1.tar.gz
cd xmrig-2.14.1
mkdir build && cd build
cmake .. -DWITH_HTTPD=OFF -DWITH_TLS=OFF
make
cp ../src/config.json config.json
nano config.json
  • Then adjust your config settings to match you wallet and pool etc. Find and change the following lines:
algo: "cryptonight"
url: "[pool address]"
user: "[wallet address]"
  • Be sure to keep the quotes "" around your pool address and wallet address.
./xmrig-notls

Instead of copy pasting each command individually you can copy paste what is below into Termux after you open it. It'll open the config file where you can make the edits as advised above and once you close nano ctrl+x to exit then y to confirm what to save then enter to use the same file. XMRig will then start once it's finished.

apt update && apt upgrade -y  && \
apt install wget cmake libuv-dev clang nano -y && \
wget "https://github.com/xmrig/xmrig/archive/v2.14.1.tar.gz" && \
tar xzvf v2.14.1.tar.gz && \
cd xmrig-2.14.1 && \
mkdir build && cd build && \
cmake .. -DWITH_HTTPD=OFF -DWITH_TLS=OFF && \
