Hey guys I plan on staying on stock Rom for a while but I need busy box installed. There are apps that do it, but whenever I try to install it my device just reboots. I'm stock rooted with unlocked boot loader as of right now and unable ble to achieve s-off in case that helps. New to HTC so any help would be appreciated.

You need to make your system writable

Would you be able to guide me on how to do that? Thought I had already done that but guess not :/

Im pretty sure you need to turn s-on to s-off. There are many threads on here how to do that. I think you need to root it too

Guess I'm out of luck. Tried to use the s off method but it said it wouldn't work on my device

If you have unlocked bootloader you can try to flash or use a module or hacked/custom kernel which can turn system from read only to write...flar made this module/kernel...so read the thread and maybe give it a try...
