Default 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:
(1.21.1-jb_bionic) built 2013.07.25
(1.21.1-linusyang) built 2013.10.08
(1.21.1-Stericson) built 2013.07.08

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

BusyBox_v1.21.1-jb_bionic.zip - 354.64 KB

BusyBox Cleaner
BusyBox-Cleaner.zip - 938 bytes
md5: 1ac4d989fcf5217ad36a236cd08f0b99

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.
