So I asked a friend if I could delete /system/xbin to get rid of busybox and he said it should be fine since /system/xbin is user created however I want to be sure its user created before I go ahead and delete it.

Other question:

What does busybox install exactly? Does anyone have a list of what it installs so I can make sure (Because I used one guide to install busybox and it told me to install it in a different location but it errored and said it didn't install but I want to make sure it wasn't able to install totally and didn't actually install some files) busybox didn't install in that location at all.

Thank you.

Assuming your phone is rooted there's no issue removing that directory and anything inside. Busybox is just a binary there's no "install" so to speak. U can run busybox grep -r busybox from /system to search if this binary was moved into other directories than xbin

busybox --install .

Is the install command for busybox. I was curious if it just makes symlinks to busybox or if it actually copies the commands to that directory. I assume I could find out by running it again into a control directory then grep one of those files.
