The fastest, most trusted, and most popular BusyBox installer! Over 1 million installs! Winner of best Utility Software award for Android via Handster.

This application REQUIRES root!

Please note I did not write BusyBox! I wrote this installer, cross compiled BusyBox for Android. Please see the about menu option for more details or here:

The BusyBox source code can be found here:

Patches added to this can be found here:

BusyBox is a software application that provides many standard Unix tools, much like the larger (but more capable) GNU Core Utilities. BusyBox is designed to be a small executable for use with the Linux kernel, which makes it ideal for use with embedded devices. It has been self-dubbed "The Swiss Army Knife of Embedded Linux".

This version includes 1.19.2, 1.17.1, 1.18.4, and 1.18.5 no need to have more than that because it takes up space on your phone and each newer version will still contain the older features, unless I forgot to compile them in.

Leave this installed if you always want to get the latest version of busybox!

If you would like to donate, there is a donate version of this app on the market to help with the future development of this app and just a way to say thanks!

Top compilation of commands Good selection of UNIX commands helps me have a good old fiddle on cmd line. Any chance you can add AIX style proctree or Solaris ptree commands? To help find what is spawning procs. Cheers
