Get sh console up with busybox. You can execute any commands in busybox.
\u@\h:\w$ busybox ash
/ $ gzip --help

You will notice "ps" output difference between busybox and toolbox.
/ $ ps
/ $ /system/bin/ps

Or you can install manually by making symbolic link. If you want "tar" and "top" then;
$ cd /data/app/busybox
$ ln -s busybox tar
$ ln -s busybox top

My opinion. I would not try to --install until toolbox source code becomes public because I don't know what side effect would be. I guess toolbox could be yet another version of busybox.

For now, I stick with "busybox tar", "busybox top" kind of way.

Cheers,
