[DEV][MAGISK][v1.0] Lightweight Busybox for Magisk

Search This thread


Jul 28, 2015
This is my first magisk module. It's currently not submitted to the Magisk-Modules-Repo as I'm not sure @topjohnwu will accept it.

What does it do?
It searches for magisks internal Busybox (currently it just looks at /data/adb/magisk/busybox and /sbin/.magisk/busybox but that might change with new Magisk versions). If it finds Busybox it will create a link to it at /system/xbin. After that it executes busybox --install -s /system/xbin to create symlinks for all the tools Busybox offers. All of that happens with Magisks systemless magic.

Why do I need this?
If you don't know what Busybox is you'll most likely not need it. If you need Busybox this is the most lightweight solution possible as it doesn't ship any binaries (like other Busybox modules/apps do) but re-uses the one used by Magisk.

Happy testing and don't forget to report bugs. :)
