    Busybox - Manual Install How To Guide

    Yes there is an app for it but I prefer the manual way and thought to pass along the instructions

    Download Busybox-1.17.2 HERE
    Extract busybox to your SD Card
    Make sure you are in PC Mode and Debugging is enabled in Applications options
    adb shell
    su
    stop
    mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    cp /sdcard/busybox /system/xbin/
    cd system/xbin
    busybox --install /system/xbin/
    mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    sync
    reboot

    You can also use Root Explorer or whatever file browser you may use to copy busybox to your system/xbin folder. Some people use system/bin but I prefer xbin...just a habbit.

    From what I can tell it's for executing various Unix commands.
