    Hey I did everything the guide Install Busybox - Root Your Droid says, but im just concerned anytime i copy and paste a command line, the only thing that pops up is an exact copy of what i just typed in, im not getting any “errors” (accept one, for creating a folder/file that already existed) or confirmations it doesnt look like anything is happening, is this suppose to happen?

    At the end did it reboot your phone? It should've worked. It is normal to copy what you type, its just a confirmation.

    it did reboot. I was just concerned I expected some kind of report while installing at least during busybox --install
    or sync
    but it jus says the samy thing i wrote, but if that's normal thats all I wanted to know. It was weird to me lol. Felt like maybe i was doing something wrong.

    Yea I understand. But yes you are good to go. If you have a file manager with root permissions you can check your system/xbin folder for busybox. =)
