I see these 2 a lot. What is the difference? Pro's and Con's? Why use one and not the other? Thanks!

mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p14", "/system");

Vs

run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/system");

Thanks for the guide. One thing though, what's the difference in installing busybox. I've often seen this code

symlink("/system/xbin/busybox", "/system/bin/busybox");
run_program("/system/xbin/busybox", "--install", "-s", "/system/xbin");

whereas in others, they're just symlinks like in the op

symlink("busybox", "/system/xbin/[", "/system/xbin/[[",
"/system/xbin/adjtimex", "/system/xbin/arp", "/system/xbin/ash",

Hey, great tutorial. Do you think it'd be a good idea to also add what parameters each function takes? For example unmount will only take one parameter but symlink can take 2 or more. It would be good to see which parameter does what and the number of expected parameters.

Thanks for the writeup!

Hi
Can you tell me what is the difference between:
Code:
mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p3", "/system");
and
Code:
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/system");
and what and how should I use to be able to copy files to
Code:
/res/customconfig/
- how can I determine partition/mount point - I am still bit a lost in this so I don't know how to design my updater-script...
this is what I have now - but I am not sure it will be working - or it will not damage the phone:
Code:
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/res");
delete("/res/customconfig/customconfig-helper", "/res/customconfig/customconfig.xml", "/res/customconfig/actions/push-actions/config_backup_restore");
package_extract_dir("res", "/res");
set_perm(0, 0, 6755, "/res/customconfig/customconfig-helper", "/res/customconfig/customconfig.xml", "/res/customconfig/custom.profile", "/res/customconfig/actions/push-actions/config_backup_restore");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "unmount", "/res");
thank you for any help (the script should help me to create some custom features for the kernel I use which is operated by STweaks app)

@KINGbabasula could you explain about symlink more?
Written in OP isn't enough for my project!
