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.

BusyBox has been written with size-optimization and limited resources in mind. It is also extremely modular so you can easily include or exclude commands (or features) at compile time. This makes it easy to customize your embedded systems. To create a working system, just add some device nodes in /dev, a few configuration files in /etc, and a Linux kernel.

BusyBox is maintained by Denys Vlasenko, and licensed under the GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE version 2.

Very useful app a very good app for a aspiring developer like me. Keep it up, good job. None of the apps were working until I came across your app. Thanks again P.s to all those people who keep complaining about ads I found the ads to be non-profit intrusive and non-deceptive. If you want to get rid of them just buy the pro version. Successfully working on Android pie Redmi 4

Great install of BusyBox for 'droid. Easy access to applets and scripts. Includes every feature I could think of off the top of my limited intelect. Having compared a few this is the best of the FREE installs IMHO.

Installs busybox on file system, but does not give user access to it. Instead of that it puts off user with extremely disruptive ads.
