Nope, we're on the same page now man lol....so su, cd /sdcard/bt, sh installbt.sh, and startbt all go through accordingly but then when asked to enter bt to launch, you get that error...hey do me a favor and just check the bt folder and see if you have all five files and if you could, also post up their sizes so I can compare your's to mine(hey now)...especially bt.img, on my phone its 3.3GB..if using MyFiles, going into the app and scroll down to the BT folder, go in, and then long press on bt.img and select details, it should read 3.3GB(3,501,000,000 bytes)

if you hit home you will be back in android you can even close terminal and backtrack/ubuntu will still work the only way it shuts down is if you run the commands to shut it down at least thats the case for me i have terminal closed and im still able to disconnect and reconnect no problem at all. hope that answered your question
