If you have a rooted device, then you will most likely be needing BusyBox, in one form or another. This is a small app designed to work specifically with the Linux kernel, which means that it’s a perfect fit for mobile devices, such as your phone. It’s also called the “"The Swiss Army Knife of Embedded Linux".
