Let me say from the outset, that I have no idea what busybox does, or how it does it. Hence the mid-range rating. But I don't need to know. I just clicked a button and it installed. I presume that it replaces and tweaks certain elements of the Android OS in order to make it more efficient. Again, I don't know if this is correct or if I'm barking up the wrong tree completely. Anyway, it says that if you have your device rooted then you need it. That's good enough for me and millions of others.
To the many people who are wondering about the purpose of this app, it makes available a number of Linux commands (and consequently. Shell scripts) which don't come bundled in android. FYI, Android is essentially based on Linux but heavily modified. That is why busybox is needed for most apps with root access.
I know it's a hassle but It's the only thing that keeps it from being number 1 app agains the other app , which doesn't work like this one.
This new update makes the app unusable, says there are errors in the system. Edit: reinstall fixed it
Ever since I learned how to root my Android devices I have always installed this particular version of busy box. It's essential to the rooting process.
I just download this app becuse lucky pather says no busy box no pather or another word
