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.

    I used the free version and it worked perfectly. Just one tap to install busybox without any hassles. I promised to give the dev a donation from the free app but decided to purchase it here instead, hopefully that gives you more money. This program is more than worth it. Do I need to uninstall the free app or can they live side by side? Also, hope your health problems are improving :)
