Try
Code:
echo -en "\033[2J\033[1;1H

To shift the cursor to (H)ome you could try manually first to see if this works:-
Code:
echo -n $'\x1B[H'

If not then you might have to juggle the vertical tabs or cursor position using similar methods as before see here:-

ANSI escape code - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

EDIT:
An example:-
Code:
echo -n $'\x1B[2J'$'\x1B[24A'

This works on the very limited OSX 10.7.5 "/bin/echo" command too...

saved echo -e -n "\033[2J" in my /system/bin file as 'clear'. Its working now but same problem remains. Cursor doesn't go to top left of the screen.
You do not have a real terminal... (edited by neo). There's entire categories of things it cannot or will not do. Most people, once they root a machine, install sshd so they can login with a real terminal and do real things.

Thanks Corona.

I installed BusyBox and thereafter I am able to access 'clear', 'vi' etc commands.

I also installed sshd server and client. Accessed my cell through my laptop using ssh also connected to my Database server through mobile.

thanks Everyone!! Smilie
