Love it Wow! Amazingly powerful and fun. I received great support and I highly recommend busybox no root pro. Thanks!

Thank You! Thank You for making this available for non-rooted devices!

Well Crafted and Essential This app brings back to Android some of the power it lost when it devolved from unix/linux.

Didn't install so I uninstalled app. I added text to "initial command" I installed, I opened terminal, I pasted, I typed ls, I typed busybox, and I got a message "busybox: can't execute: Is a directory. Bottom line. either the instructions are poor or the software is poor or this thing is fake and my phone just got screwed by some turd punk.

Steve Evans

Flawless I always wondered why no one did this until now because it is such a powerful app. I don't even like to call busybox a app because it is so much more, so kudo's to doing something that's a must for any Linux based distro. Thanks my dude!!

Can't access certain directories Step 2: Launch Terminal! - Error "Internal installation folder does not exist, please try again!"

Excellent way of getting shell commands without root Not all commands such as "bash" seem to have libraries, and many like ifconfig and tcpdump need root anyway, but it does give me some awesome utilities like date, find and wget. In addition to working utilities and a shortcut to starting terminal with these functions, it also has a feature to put the export command in clipboard to add yourself to terminal's initial command. This lets you use busybox commands through the regular terminal shortcut or even the qpython console. Super useful!!!

Wow!!! I was skeptical at first because I didn't know if it were possible to install busybox without root. Well this app answered my question. This app installs busybox on a non rooted device without any complications. I'd be glad to donate more. Thanks for such a great app.

Nice handy app works fine no problem recommending

Wellllll..... Doesn't work well for me. Nmap and ssh (just to name a few) commands don't work. Also every time I open it, it says installing binaries... and never comes off that screen. I'm not sure if its supposed to do that, but I doubt it

Butch Handy

Worked perfectly on my non-rooted Note 3. I didn't need to root just to get the few extra commands I needed for my Tasker scripts. Thanks a lot!

Pratik Panda

No root needed Only busybox app that doesn't need root

Ernest Byaruhanga

Where is ssh? Hi I bought this hoping I would find the ssh command (ssh client). Where is it?

Adam Watts

Sometimes works I downloaded the app, I tapped install, I copyed the command, I pasted the command in the command line, and entered it, I typed busybox time, nothing happend

Peter Garner

Very good indeed - make sure you have the space! I wanted to use BusyBox with Jack Palevich's Android Terminal Emulator, and as a combination, the two work very well indeed. I have a fairly generic Rockchip VS TOUCHTAB 7DC branded Versus. The only problem I had was that the app didn't install properly the first few times as I was nearly out of "disk" space. Once I'd cleared out some rarely-used apps it worked as intended. If you're upgrading from the non-pro to pro version you need to note that install path changes to /data/data/burrows.apps.busybox.paid/app_busybox/busybox (note the extra word "paid") so if you've already set the non-pro path in Terminal *you'll need to change it to suit: I missed this initially and couldn't figure out why it had apparently failed. But, it is awesome that I haven't had to root the tablet and can run all my favourite utilities. Highly recommended!

5 star Works great and as advertised. Thanks for the innovation!
