BusyBox for Android is the most advanced BusyBox installer. BusyBox combines tiny versions of many common UNIX utilities into a single small executable. The utilities in BusyBox generally have fewer options than their full-featured GNU cousins, however, the options included provide the expected functionality and behave very much like their GNU counterparts. BusyBox provides a fairly complete environment for any small or embedded system.

BusyBox is written with size-optimization in mind. It is modular so you can easily include or exclude commands (or features) at compile time, making it easy to customize embedded systems.

BusyBox Features:
◻Material design
◻Latest BusyBox
◻Create flashable ZIPs
◻One click install or install in recovery
◻Run, create, and edit shell scripts
◻Get the latest BusyBox version


Most applications that use root access need BusyBox to function properly. BusyBox can be useful for developers or root users since it provides many utilities that Android's Toolbox does not.

No, you do not need root access to use BusyBox. BusyBox for Android can run in terminal emulator or from ADB shell. However, if you want to install and symlink BusyBox on your system path then root access is required.
