    I'm trying to reinstall busybox. After installing the Froyo leak Titanium backup stopped working. My phone is still rooted, which means it must be busybox.

    So since it's been awhile since I've done any of this I go back to the guides and follow them verbatim.

    adb push busybox /data/local/busybox <-- works
    adb shell <-- works
    su <-- works
    cd /data/local <-- works
    chmod 755 busybox <-- works
    ./busybox

    here I get: ./busybox: permission denied
    so what's the deal?

    Use Titanium to install Busybox, click the Problems? button. Worked flawlessly for me.

    Try MetaMorph though
    I did the same thing for busybox on TiBu and TiBu worked, but MM says that there is a problem with busybox.

    if metamorph wont see busybox this is the fix I have used in the past when tibu didnt fix the problem

    adb push busybox /data/local/busybox
    adb shell
    su
    cd /data/local
    chmod 755 busybox
    ./busybox
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    mkdir /system/xbin
    /data/local/busybox cp /data/local/busybox /system/xbin
    /data/local/busybox cp /data/local/busybox /system/bin
    cd /system/xbin
    busybox --install .
    mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    sync
    reboot
