1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    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.
