Bummer, because I have /bin/bash setup for both user and root in /etc/passwd and it doesn't cause any problems. How and from where did you install bash?

EDIT: And I've rebooted many times like this.

Yes setting shell to anything other than sh will kill the device.
How you have set up the package? When i install gcoreutils, then busybox still serves the commands. Thank you for the Package.

It sounds funny that bash should work in the user account on a few devices? I have changed it via chsh and have tested it three times with the same problem - i can't boot anymore.

with kind regards Patrick

All the GNU tools are prefixed with g also see dpkg -L gcoreutils

I don't want touch busybox since some things might be needed for the system

For the record, I've just reflashed my N900 and reinstalled bash. The only change i had to make was to edit /etc/passwd to set bash as user's shell.
