Overview: The definitive busybox binary installer for Phones, Tablets and TV's.


The definitive busybox binary installer for Phones, Tablets and TV's

BusyBox combines many essential and standard Unix tools into a single compact binary suitable for embedded devices such your Android Phone or Tablet. BusyBox has become an extremely important and popular tool for Android users who have a rooted device. Most Rooted apps rely on the standard Linux/Unix environment given by busybox to perform various low level system tasks. The BusyBox X+ installer makes installing the busybox binary much easier and painless than other through a KISS approach. The installer supports all device form factors such as Phones, Phablets, Tablets, TV's, Android TV Stick/Box and soon Google Glass. Also supports all architectures such as ARM, MIPS and Intel x86 devices with a single App.


+ Quick and Easy to use

+ Installs the latest busybox version 1.21.1

+ Supports ARM MIPS and x86 unlike others

+ Self contained, so no additional downloads like the others

+ Installer + ARM, MIPS and x86 binary is only 2.4 MB

+ Most complete busybox binary with 300+ builtin commands

+ Can be used without root via decaf mode

+ Extensive busybox documentation



+ Safe - Installs to xbin binary directory / does not mix up with system binaries

BusyBox X is KISS. The useful buttons are the install and decaf. Pressing the decaf will give you a shell where you can try out busybox without root and without installing.

Installing the binary

+ Press Allow or enable Allow always when Superuser / SuperSU prompts

+ See if the bottom left icon turned green

Why would I need busybox?

Most rooted apps rely on busybox. So any user who has a rooted device or a Linux/Unix lover would need this.

Does this Root my device?

No. But the installer requires a rooted phone.

Why should I use BusyBox X+ over others?

BusyBox X+ is KISS, and does only one thing, installs busybox quickly. The binary that comes with it is complete with 300+ commands - that's almost twice as many as other offerings. All architectures are supported and there are no additional downloads as opposed to other offerings - the installer comes packed with ARM, MIPS and x86 versions of the binaries in a small size. Plus it comes packed with a extensive busybox documentation!
