    Installs via cwm. This is the latest busybox snapshot from the busybox git. It also supports some things that some other busybox binaries do not, such as crond. There are a lot of commands that are overkill or excessive, but hey, I like my options :D

    BusyBox v1.19.0.git (2010-12-20 01:08:42 MST) multi-call binary.

    BusyBox is a multi-call binary that combines many common Unix
    utilities into a single executable. Most people will create a
    link to busybox for each function they wish to use and BusyBox
    will act like whatever it was invoked as.

    1.17 is the stable branch. 1.18 juuuust made it out of unstable I believe, and 1.19 is the current snapshot.

    New version with a few less (useless) applets. Also correctly uses symlinks whereas prior versions were installing but making copies of busybox with the same size :(

    Sorry about that.

    To upgrade to this version you must manually clean out your xbin folder. Delete all files that have the SAME size. ~1.93mb.
