Fantastic app This app gives back the control to our hands with the luxury of keeping the phone not rooted. It requires only basic understanding how Linux works to install & use, and rewards us with all its features. There are some bumps on the road expecially with binaries that always require elevated permissions but the rest of the functions work nice! Thank you.
Perfect for Lollipop, but broken in Marshmallow An update: It appears that Marshmallow has broken Busybox. I need to do some analysis on the go sometimes, but don't fancy rooting my phone. This solution is perfect. I can now get some basic analysis done while I get to office.
Works awesome I had a few issues but changing the export command to have $PATH the end instead of beginning fixed it (as suggested by Pete Lewis in the reviews). You should put that in the app description. Really would have liked commands like dpkg
Huawei P8 errors Some commands work, some don't. Great idea though. LIBRARY_PATH:/data/data/burrows.apps.busybox/app_busybox < u0_a197@HWGRA:/ $ lsusb Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 u0_a197@HWGRA:/ $ id CANNOT LINK EXECUTABLE DEPENDENCIES: "libc.so" is 32-bit instead of 64-bit 1|u0_a197@HWGRA:/ $
This app has been so useful for me in the past. I messaged the developer on Facebook to thank him. He responded and asked if there was anything I could think of for him to improve. Stand up guy.
Installs what it says, with a little push. Working, now. Solution below. A nice simple workaround to get the busybox commands without having root. If this is foreign to you or you run into difficulties; read on my frustrated friend. The final installation step for proper functionality is an environment variable string (LD_LIBRARY_PATH) novelley supplied by the author via your devices clipboard at the end of the installation. You will need a terminal emulator (easy download also included by the author) to input the command that was copied to your clipboard. Just add $PATH to it.
