Can we install BusyBox and SuperSU both on the NC1 AT&T S4 after rooting it with the towelroot? I want to use some features of secure settings which requires busybox.

Thanks

I know, I assume you can. I don't know why not. You can on other devices. I just have not done it on the i337

I just had a concern regarding the same binaries conflict.. but if it works on different devices.. then i guess it should work on S4 too.

Thanks

Busybox and supersu handle separate functionalities. Busybox provides Linux utilities that applications/user can use. Super user is used to manage root requests from applications.
