BACKTOP v0.00001

Alright, so this is a guide to finally get the backtrack 5 software running inside of webtop. It uses chroot and xterm to allow full access to the software contained within the backtrack 5 arm image.

Prerequisites:

Quote:

CWM Installed:
For all version: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1138541

WebTopMOD installed:
For 2.3.4 go here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1169457
For 1.8.3 go here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1093790

You do not need to download the Debian disk image. Will we be using the backtrack disk image instead.

BusyBox Installed in /system/bin:
Downloaded "BusyBox Installer" from the app store.
BE SURE TO INSTALL IN /SYSTEM/BIN!

The Goods:

Quote:

BackTop.zip:
Download and un-zip the attached files into /sdcard/bt
BackTop.zip

BackTrack 5 ARM Image:
PART 1 : Download Link : http://bit.ly/p1BT5
PART 2 : Download Link : http://bit.ly/BT5p2
PART 3 : Download Link : http://bit.ly/BT5p3

These download links are from the xperia backtrack project and where I took inspiration to get it working in webtop. After using 7z to unarchive just place bt.img in the /sdcard/bt folder. The archives other contents can be safely ignored.

What you should have by now:
Quote:

WebTOPMOD for Atrix.
BusyBox Installed in /system/bin.
Downloaded scripts placed in the /sdcard/bt folder.
Downloaded bt.img placed in the /sdcard/bt folder.

Give it a go:
Quote:

Step 0: Connect the phone to display/lapdock. Run webtop and wait for it to boot.
Step 1: Open LXTerminal from the dock and type "cd /sdcard/bt"
Step 2: To run BackTop type "sudo bash backtop"

You should be presented with a white xterm screen. You can now use all the utilities built into backtrack 5 with ease. You can even run the gnome desktop environment! (More on that bellow)

Running Gnome:
Quote:

You first need to kill off all the webtop crap do this by typing the following in xterm.
"ps ax|grep awn|awk '{print $1}'|xargs kill"
"ps ax|grep panel|awk '{print $1}'|xargs kill"

Then start gnome by typing "gnome-session" in xterm.

Accessing sdcards:
Quote:

You'll need to make two directories inside of backtrack /sdcard and /sdcard-ext to do this type:

"sudo mkdir /sdcard"
"sudo mkdir /sdcard-etc"

Once you've done this simply reboot your phone and restart BackTop.

Known issues:
Quote:

ettercap causes network connectivity inside of webtop to fail.

If something does go terribly wrong you can always force quit backtop with the following command:

"sudo bash /sdcard/bt/forcekillbt"

If you don't know what BackTrack is then you don't need it.

its a pen testing Linux suit. its essentially Linux loaded up with hacking tools meant for testing networks to prevent hacking or "penetration". hack your own network. discover the vulnerabilities. and patch them. - to put it simply

7z issue with the bt.7z
Hum... I might be doing something wrong but I am not able to uncompress the 3 volumes posted in the links... I was able to download them all but the only one who actually I can uncompress is the first one and it generate a file bt.7z that I am also unable to uncompress... I am getting the following msg when I try to 7unzip them:

"cannot open file 'x:\xx\xx\bt.7z.002' as archive"

Should I join them all into one then use 7zip?


Forget it I just found it out by myself... is using a program to join them all into one then Unzip it.
