I have BusyBox version v1.15.3 installed that came with the ROM gingerdx 31b. This busybox version cannot be updated/changed, because if it's being updated, the phone goes into a bootloop on the next reboot, it is said not to update the busybox in the ROM thread too.
The problem is, this busybox version doesn't include the applet
pgrep. Whenever pgrep is typed in the shell & executed it gives out a
pgrep: not found error. "pgrep" is needed by the "super charger" script to do some tasks.
So, I tried creating a symbolic link to a working pgrep from another busybox version. I stored the busybox file in the
/data/ folder, made it
chmod 777, then
cd to that directory. Then execute the command;
ln -sf "busybox pgrep" "./busybox pgrep"
but even when I execute pgrep, it still gives the same error. How do I make the pgrep command point to a working pgrep, via another busybox or a pgrep file?
Also, how do I make this link permanent, so that it stays that way after a reboot? Should I add this to the .bashrc or do this using a init.d script? Both my knowledge on android & linux commands are limited as well. Any help is much appreciated.
