Greets, now that I have finally been able to full-root my XperiaM, I would like to know if BusyBox needs to stay installed in order to "keep" the full root or can it be uninstalled or at least frozen with Titanium Backup. (I am trying to cut down on all the icons in my apps tray).

I know that BusyBox was needed in order for the Anto Kus Tool to do it's magic but now I don't know if it is still needed.... Cheers

The icon you have at your launcher is an installer, so, you probably downloaded it, asked it to install busybox and did the full root. You can safely remove that app, by doing that you're removing the installer only, busybox binary (which is needed by most of the root apps) will stay installed...
