    Busy Box gives you additional Linux/Unix commands for root level tasks. I never installed ICS on my Mercury during the time I used it, but my understanding was that root wasn't available for that OS version. If I'm correct in my assumption, then there isn't any reason for you to install it.

    What happens when you try to download Busy Box from the play store? Do you mind if I ask which app it is that is requiring Busy Box to run?

    There's a root method available in the stickys. You do need root access to install busybox. I've used the BusyBox installer for ICS successfully multiple times.
