-> About

Busybox is a good set of common Unix utilities but the utilities are all striped down version of original ones and they provide less features ; So you may need the original utility with full features for your App or cmd-line ,therefore you should use this project !

`Core Utils on Android` project provides most GNU Core Utils for Android devices. they may be invoked from Android Apps or from command line terminal.

All utils has been compiled with Linaro GCC 4.8.1 (Hardware floating point ABI) and O3 optimizations and with Musl LibC to provide best performance.

ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.

-> Requirements

an ARM v7 processor with built-in NEON SIMD (scorpion, krait, exynose 4, exynose 5,...)

-> Installation

Be sure you meet the requirements !
Get the zip file
Flash it via recovery mod
Reboot and enjoy

-> Usage

To avoid issues of having busybox and coreutils at same time , all utils are named in form : cu.${UTIL_NAME} for example :

cu.echo "hello world!"

or

cu.chmod 644 /system/build.prop

and use this form for invoking any utility !

to see how to use utilities , take a look at GNU CoreUtil documentations.

-> Bugs

a few utils such as ls and uname are broken down till I fix them and add the correct one to repository.

some utils are missed. ( currently we have 103 applets working)

-> Download

** CoreUtils on Android v1
initial release . we have 103(working) + 2(not working) utils now

-> Source

Since I'm in an impulsive state at the moment, I'm going to go ahead and say...

Edit: I misread the OP, I have a north American gs3.... Damn you Samsung and your favoritism with international versions.

I has a sad now.

Anyways, I really hope development flourishes for this project because this interesting..
