Installing BackTrack5 onto the Motorola Atrix 4G
As I am not allowed to post this where it should be, this seems to be the next best place.
* The Motorola Atrix 4G (without this you wont be going very far)
* Atleast a 4 Gb SD card
* a way of transfering data from your computer onto the SD card (The supplied USB cable or an SD adaptor)
* SuperUser (If your on this site, you most likely already have this)
* Just about any Terminal Emulator will work (I used Better Terminal Emulator Pro)
* Any VNC Viewing Client (I used androidVNC)
* A Busybox installer (I used Stericson's BusyBox installer)
* I used the BackTrack5 version posted by msullivan
, found **HERE**
I used a slightly edited version of the bt file from the bundle
just copy and paste over the original bt file:
perm=$(id|cut -b 5)
if [ "$perm" != "0" ];then echo "This script requires root! Type: su"; exit; fi
busybox mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mmcblk0p5 /system
if [ -b /dev/loop7 ]; then
echo "Loop device exists"
busybox mknod /dev/loop7 b 7 0
#mount -o loop,noatime -t ext2 $kit/bt5.img $mnt
losetup /dev/block/loop7 $kit/bt5.img
mount -t ext2 /dev/block/loop7 $mnt
mount -t devpts devpts $mnt/dev/pts
mount -t proc proc $mnt/proc
mount -t sysfs sysfs $mnt/sys
busybox sysctl -w net.ipv4.ip_forward=1
echo "nameserver 220.127.116.11" > $mnt/etc/resolv.conf
echo "nameserver 18.104.22.168" >> $mnt/etc/resolv.conf
echo "127.0.0.1 localhost bt5" > $mnt/etc/hosts
echo "Ubuntu is configured with SSH and VNC servers that can be accessed from the IP:"
echo " "
busybox chroot $mnt /bin/bash
echo "Shutting down BackTrack ARM"
losetup -d /dev/loop7
1. Make sure you have enough space to work with (atleast 4Gb).
2. Edit the bt file with the above coding.
3. Copy over the BT5 folder onto your SD card however you see fit, I just used a SD to USB adaptor that I got with my SD card.
4. Disconnect the USB cable if you have it connected.
5. open your Terminal emulator and type:
cd /sdcard-ext/BT5 <ENTER>
8. The bt file should run, and leave you with a red command prompt.
Hit the home button.
9. Open your VNC Viewer and enter the login information.
The screen size still needs adjusting however as I believe it is set at 800×480 currently.
