    Looks like busybox binaries after lollipop update are now getting installed & can be accessed with busybox-ba [app]. Accessing them directly does not seem to work. Tools like vi & ifconfig seem to work with busybox-ba, but any web based tool (ping, wget) always return 'bad address'

    Installing Binaries never completes (1+ hrs) but after aborting, all binaries do get loaded . After setting the export commands in [Terminal Emulator -> Initial Command] per instructions, I can open Terminal Emulator and invoke via "busybox-ba {command} ". Invoking busybox command links doesn't seem to work, but I'm a noober. Very satisfied to have workable nonroot busybox! Kitkat 4.4.2, LG Fle

    Worked great until Lollipop. It now complains about the programs not being position independent executables. I'm using JuiceSSH with snippets to set the PATH. THANK YOU!
