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".

Best Busybox app hands down! The pro version is definitely worth it. Even the self reinstall on reboot is very handy. It has not failed me yet. I am a little confused as if I have to use pro and the free version but I deleted the free version and just running the pro version. Overall 10/10 would highly recommend. Edit: on android 11 it doesn't automatically reinstall itself to /sbin so I have to manually reinstall on reboot/power off to /system/bin but it still works as intended

So if ur rooting a Samsung (modern + exynos), you want to install busybox module through Magisk. This busybox app, free and paid, is a waste, because it does not cooperate well with magisk and will probably leave you reflashing your phone again. Save urself the time, if Magisk doesnt have the download menu for busybox module, you messed up, start over.

Doesn't install on boot on Android 11 (even though the notification shows success it shows not installed if you open the app). I was hoping for the best, since the new partition structure was known before the last update. Yet another device switched to the Magisk module that works fine on 11.
