I'm trying to flash something a package that contains su and busybox programs, and I know what you think, I'm rooting a device.
I've googled and there's the adb shell and fastboot programs that can help me but, how can flash it by commands?
Copy pasting the updater-script commands and the busybox installer too?
Please help me out! D:

Question Install su by using "fastboot flash" without recovery ROM (CWM or TWRP)?
Similar for me.

I'd like to install su and busybox as well on my Lenovo A8 (A5500-F, A8-50) tablet with Android KitKat (4.4.2).
However there's no CWM or TWRP for my device and I read other tools do not work.

But can I install a file called "", containing su, superuser and busybox (and installation script) using fastboot?
Like: "fastboot flash" ?

Using a file like this one:

Any ideas if this should work?

No, that definitely wouldn't work. You have to have the bootloader unlocked and most likely if that was possible then there would already be a custom recovery for it...
