Default kali for note 10.1 why not us

Check this out: http://docs.kali.org/armel-armhf/kal...on-galaxy-note

I looked over the recovery and thought it looked ok (though thats an area i usually leave to pros), and attempted to make a x86 image so altering
Code:
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6 of=recovery.img_orig
and
dd if=recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6
and inputting this
Code:
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p11 of=recovery.img_orig
and
dd if=recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p11
then I rebooted and it hung up at the samsung galaxy tab 3 screen

How hard would it be to rewrite the recovery image linked to there to work on our device. Or if its in good shape I guess i screwed up making my x86 image of Kali any input of on either subject would be appreciated.
Had an idea as soon as I reflash and reroot and download a couple more files and reboot and finish updating this laptop I'm working on, ill try to break my gtab again

You can't. Those versions of Kali is for ARM (armel = ARM soft-float / armhf = ARM hard-float), while the GTab3 10.1. is x86.

But you should be able to modify any x86 (tablet-)linux for use with GTab3 10.1

So you obviously didn't read the whole post.
I know the note 10.1 is arm and the gtab 10.1 is x86 I attempted to make a .img from the x86 live disc which obviously failed
I really just wanted someone to glance over the recovery.img and say with better authority than me if Offensive Security's recovery img needed anything.
However i will take your advise and toy around with some other distros that are x86 tablet ready in conjunction with that recovery. It only takes 5 min to reflash anyway.
