About this app

Note: Method 2 ensure 99% successful to run Busybox on all android device, if failed, here are the following reason:

1. You don't know how to use it.

2. Something MIRACLE is happening.

BusyBox: The Swiss Army Knife of Embedded Linux

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.

However, using Busybox on android required root access for most app. But, since android is base on linux kernel, we will be able to run Busybox by using some linux hack.


Device with one of the following architecture:

arm, arm64, x86, x86_64, mips, mips64

Working (that's good),may be used on rooted devices too(useful for same automation scripts used on multiple devices using same dirs).But there should be a convenient option to choose another terminal app when launched from app itself.Because the default term of Jack P. is rather poor and incompatible with some devices and keyboards(it can be solved manually but it's just another inconvenience).ADDITION:Has no permission to access the source dir (Huawei). Only way to use busybox now seems termux!

Hey bro , i know where the problem in this app , you just need to make unix binaries available in /sdcard , mean you need to add access to storage permission in this app , and then add binaries in a directory then we can export path to this directory , and it will work , the problem was because any terminal app not have the pemission to list content of /data/data/com.yourpackagename But it have access to storage , so you need to make binaries available in /sdcard partition okay

Method 2 works on my device but this busybox does not contain ssh which makes it much less useful. Would give 5 stars of this was included.
