PS: Write protection is disabled in recovery. That is why superuser/root could be installed there.
PPS: Here is the kernel I run (protection disabled):

So, is there a way to install busybox via recovery ?

I did 3 things in recovery: all in /system/xbin
- chmod +s su
- touch t
- mkdir tmp

after reboot to normal mode, SUID bit was removed, but t and tmp are still here.

So, how do I install busybox ?

New issue: /data has the nodev flag; is it possible to remove it ?

I did not found /dev/shm ; was it moved somewhere else ? Any other place for similar use ? (world write temp folder in RAM).
