About BusyBox

This application is an BusyBox installer for Android. Includes BusyBox v1.24.1, supported 339 applets, the most complete set of functions. Supports installation BusyBox from the application and via recovery from zip archive (see "Menu - Zip archive").

To install BusyBox requires superuser (root) privileges, but you also can use a busybox tools without root permissions. For it is enough in any Android terminal to type the following command:
export PATH=/data/data/ru.meefik.busybox/files/bin:$PATH

BusyBox combines tiny versions of many common UNIX utilities into a single small executable. It provides replacements for most of the utilities you usually find in GNU fileutils, shellutils, etc. The utilities in BusyBox generally have fewer options than their full-featured GNU cousins; however, the options that are included provide the expected functionality and behave very much like their GNU counterparts. BusyBox provides a fairly complete environment for any small or embedded system.

REQUIREMENTS:
* Device with architecture ARM, x86 or MIPS
* Android 2.3 (API 9) or later
* Superuser permissions (root)

What are users saying about BusyBox

S70%
by S####:

How do you know about busy box when you don't know what is root and superSU. Why do you even need this. I'm talking like this because you noobs are giving this app low rating, just because you can't use it. Shame on you

L70%
by L####:

Those giving 1 star reviews saying they need superuser need to GTFO. They obviously have no business using BusyBox if they can't root their device. Anyway, great app.

Please you need to root your phone before you can use it. That's why it is demanding superuser permission.
