using the busybox commands helps... ie

"busybox mount [and whatever your options and dirs are]"

for me right now I am working backwords, but this helped me...

"busybox mount --rbind $subset/etc /etc" where without the 'busybox' at the front I get errors but with it it works like it should.

I had it working the other day where I booted up msfconsole Without! a chroot.

I mounted the image and instead of changing my root to the root of the image, I moved all the dirs in the root of the image to the root ("/") directory of my phone (samsung gs III, sprint) and added the normal PATHs to my environ with an export. It has a few kinks due to a small amount of filesystem clashing at the /etc filesystem, stuff like bluetooth config files an rc files.

I'm excited about it, if anyone is interested in working on getting Backtrack and Kali working on phones Without! a chroot, I have been working on it, maybe a colaboration or dedicated thread somewhere.

I got it up and running again without a chroot, heres a looksee:

Well I guess the script on post 600 works for some, but I can confirm it is not working for me when I have my bt5 folder located on my external SD card. (sdcard/external_sd/bt5) I also verified that the kernel that I am on (stock) does show it supports loop devices.

There was a bt script posted here that worked perfectly for me on a previous Android device I had, but now the link is gone. Does anyone have a working script that runs while the bt5 folder is located under external_sd?

bt5 should be on internal sdcard.
Although maybe you could try formatting the external sdcard something other than Fat32.
