upgrade BusyBox on CyanogenMod

To whom dont know what busybox is, plz stop using linux, android or any embedded device.

Step 1. Learn what version of kernel your device has.

my mobile use Marvel (ARMv6) kernel.

Step 2. Download your binary from here download busybox


wget -c http://www.busybox.net/downloads/binaries/latest/busybox-armv6l

Step 3. Copy busybox to your device


adb push busybox-armv6l /mnt/sdcard/

Step 4. Enter your device


adb shell

Step 5. Remount /system with read-write access


mount -o rw,remount /system
cd /system/xbin/

Step 6. Copy busybox to your system xbin dir


cp /mnt/sdcard/busybox-armv6l /system/xbin/

Step 7. Change permissions


chmod 0755  /system/xbin/busybox-armv6l

Step 8. Move your old busybox - dont remove it


cp busybox BusyBox-v1.19.4-cm7

Step 9. replace busybox


# busybox-armv6l cp busybox-armv6l busybox

simple as that !
