    Originally rooted using R3L3AS3DRoot and 43V3R root for the BIONIC v2.1, but had to do a factory reset a few weeks ago. Had to re-download superuser.apk from the market (was originally installed with the root method), and all other apps, etc.

    Recently came across an app that requires "busybox" and that particular app isn't working, but all of my other root apps are working fine. Now, I did notice I have a folder: "/system/xbin/busybox". Does this mean busybux is still installed / working on my phone or do I have to re-download a busybox app from the market? If so, which one should I go with?


    I noticed two in the market are:

    Stephen (Stericson) Busybox Installer
    https://market.android.com/details?id=stericson.busybox&hl=en

    and

    JRummy16 Busybox Installer
    https://market.android.com/details?id=com.jrummy.busybox.installer&hl=en

    I would install one of them. They are both good developers so the choice is yours.

    Thanks for the suggestions. It ended up being a problem with the app, not busybox. I think i'll go ahead and install the JRummy one anyway just so I have the latest and greatest version of busybox.
