Heh - Yeah updating busybox can be a bit tricky.
What I've used is something like the following:
cp in your new busybox to busybox.new
mv /bin/busybox /bin/busybox.old
--- Right now you've lost your mv commands and such since /bin/busybox
no longer exists
/bin/busybox.old mv /bin/busybox.new /bin/busybox
If you happen to screwup and the new busybox doesn't work, you can
always get back in by doing init=3D/bin/busybox.old sh
If you didn't save an old copy, then I think you're hooped, and you
need to re-download a new file system image as described on
