Problems Installing BusyBox

    Hello,

    I am trying to use an app (MyBackup Pro) which indicates that 'busybox' is not installed or out of date. When I go to install from the Play Store, it attempts to install Busybox 1.26.2 into /system/xbin.

    However, when I select 'Install', it indicates the installation of Busybox was not successful. Then it indicates to try installing to a different location to resolve the issue.

    Does anyone know what is causing this error?

    FYI - My phone is currently rooted using Magisk.

    Thanks in advance

    I'm not sure how Magisk works compared to SuperSU, but were you prompted to allow Busybox root access during the install process?

    In Magisk Manager Settings, you should have a setting for SU access.
    This is what it looks like on AICP ROM with Magisk built in.
    You still have to grant access when prompted

    I just checked my Magisk Manager Settings and Superuser Access is set to "Apps and ADB". I am not using any type of custom ROM.

    Are there any logs in Magisk Manager? Can you look and see if Busybox requested access and it was rejected?

    Look in manager settings for BusyBox support toggle

    That fixed it (bind mount to xbin option)! Thanks so much for helping me solve this seemingly easy problem.

    I'm very new to Magisk as well and happy to help.
