Default [Q] Messed up Busybox

Hello,

I am unable to install busybox
it says that "it looks like the installation of busybox was not successful.." and asks to install in some other location.
I tried Xbin and Bin but it could not be installed properly.

All app which need root permission are working fine.

I tried to uninstall and re install ..re install using busybox installer.
Also I re-flash CM 10 beta 6 ( Format /System ) deleted xbin , bin directory and reflashed rom) but nothing works

Its confusing that even after deleting xbin, bin directory formatting /system reflashing CM10 yet busybox is not installing.

PS: Busybox was installed successfully on stock ROM it was for a brief period was installed successfully on CM 10 as well. But when I reflash my rom (due to some reason) and tried to install busybox since then I am having problems


Any help is appreciated.
Thanks!

Htc? if so then: S-off?
Check the space on the /system partition.
Do you have read and write permissions for root on /system/xbin?
Deleting xbin and bin will make you unable to install busybox for sure.
What application are you using to install busybox?

Run the commands below on your phone or through adb.
Code:
Select Code
su
df
chmod /system/xbin/
chown 0:0 /system/xbin/
ls -l /system
Post the output from the commands above here.
No need to download the whole android sdk or put adb in your path anymore!
Just extract my tool and run the adbClientLaunch script.

Yes HTC - S-off rooted and running on CM10
I have tried busybox Stephen (Stericson) latest version
and when it was not getting installed I have trued busybox installer as well
while installing /system/xbin has R/W permission
I deleted files in xbin as coz I didnt know what to do .. I deleted only those files which were created by busybox and then I immediately flashed the ROM, but even after flashing (and wiping /system through cwm) those files were still there.

Here is the output:

/system/xbin mounted as R/W as usual

Ok, it looks like your system partition does not have enough space on this rom.
Please remove some unneeded system apps with something like titanium backup to make /system space.
Looks like we are making progress.
No need to download the whole android sdk or put adb in your path anymore!
Just extract my tool and run the adbClientLaunch script.
