Interface to install system tools - view in repository

Description

N.B During testing it was found that the restore function wasn't working properly. It's recommended that you don't use it.

Interface to install BusyBox 1.21.1 (just ARM architecture for now as the other ones can't be built) as well other versions off the internet (if you're brave). Don't install the 1.21.0 version as it isn't in the apk.

BusyBox combines tiny versions of many common UNIX utilities into a single small executable. It provides replacements for most of the utilities you usually find in GNU fileutils, shellutils, etc. Android usually comes with a very limited multi-tool called Toolbox and sometimes it is crippled even more, so a standard Busybox is often needed by root apps that need to do different jobs.

The app allows you backup and restore current binaries; to disable individual applets and see their help documentation. Just in case something goes wrong it would be wise to have a system image nearby that can be flashed via recovery or fastboot.

The range of applets in [https://raw2.github.com/tias/android-busybox-ndk/master/android_ndk_stericson-like this] version isn't identical to the upstream version.

Requires root.
