BusyBox Setup - flashable zip

First of all, a BIG THANKS to | CyanogenMod | Linus Yang | Stephen (Stericson) | for the BusyBox binaries; "More suitable for Android than the prebuilt ARM binaries from busybox.net"

This is a flashable zip that will install the latest/stable BusyBox:
(1.22.1 bionic) built 2015.01.01
(1.23.1-Stericson) built 2015.02.06
(1.21.1-linusyang) built 2013.10.08

Install location is /system/xbin with system-wide symlinks to all necessary applets (and then some...)

A simple flash from recovery is all that's needed

Stericson
BusyBox-v1.23.1-Stericson.zip
md5: bc12f4de7573ba6e4176683871f20717


Linus Yang
WITH SymLinks:
BusyBox_v1.21.1-linusyang.zip
md5: 45eac5dff48ebbd236cf2403df41a6b7


Linus Yang
WITHOUT Symlinks:
BusyBox_v1.21.1-linusyang-nosymlink.zip
md5: 30a2101f7443aa99e3757880ac6ac30e


BusyBox Cleaner
BusyBox-Cleaner.zip
md5: d0215a1c25ae5cc7254fed2269a93c21


BusyBox Cleaner can be used to remove all symlinks in /system/xbin that point to BusyBox (useful for testing builds/removing broken links) but does not delete the BusyBox binary.
(thanks @Phil3759 for the delcount function/idea)

As always make a NANDroid backup: YOU PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK

Thanks very much for the flashable zip - this is the only way I've been able to install Busybox on my HTC One.

Can you please create an updated flashable zip for the most recent version of Busybox - v1.21.

Thanks in anticipation!

Your welcome, glad it worked for you.

The BusyBox binary I'm using was built by Linus Yang (not myself), I only put the pkg together to make a flashable zip.

Added BusyBox_v1.21.1-jb_bionic (CyanogenMod) and BusyBox_v1.21.1-Stericson to the mix.

Also added BusyBox Cleaner to remove all symlinks in /system/xbin that point to BusyBox since BusyBox binaries are built with differing applets and can leave 'broken' links when testing different builds.
