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".

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

It works but it's installed in the /bin directory instead of /xbin,which it supposed to be. Also, if you're rooted with Magisk, you're better off with the busybox module in download section of Magisk manager app. It's installed systemless-ly,so if you messed up the installation(idk if it's even possible to mess up), you can start over without worries of hard bricking because busybox on magisk doesnt permanently change system files. It used to work on old android version but not new ones like Q/R

I've always used this in root application for OLDER devices. It's kinda useless for newer devices but entirely. If you decide to root have a good reason. 16gb or larger internal memory recommended. What is desperately needed is a version of DRIVE DROID that has root permission access to flash Win 10 onto laptops that don't have disc drives. But aside from this verify of busy box is the ONLY version of it's kind don't bother using the ones that look like red card board boxes.

Don't know why people are saying that this app doesn't work.Works fine for me. Also, many people are saying that it keeps on uninstalling, kindly change the folder directory, moreover the app also shows a message before installing which clearly says that it will be uninstalled after reboot.
