Just wondering if anyone has tried installing Kali Linux (Backtrack 6) on the Galaxy Note 10.1?

The img and installation instructions are provided by Kali at: http://docs.kali.org/armel-armhf/kal...on-galaxy-note

EDIT: Downloading it now, will report back later once installed!

It seems to all work except when I try to install packages it seems to be attempting to connect to a private address (10.0.0.2) which I assume is how the developers network is set up. This means you can only install packages by downloading manually or changing the host address (which I don't know how to do). Also, the img file is roughly 6gb which is quite high considering the available space provided by the tablet.

In conclusion, I think it's fast, suitable for use, but I do not own the knowledge about backtrack/kali to really test it.

Has anyone tried installing the image on a Galaxy Note 2?

UPDATE01: Never mind. Apparently, to get the kali image working, you will have to overwrite your recovery.img (which will probably break custom recovery such as CWM and TWRP). I would have preferred chroot and external dcard installation.

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

UPDATE02: I got the image running under Linux Deploy, but it is asking for a password for the SSH session. I tried 'toor', but it didn't work.

by the way, what is the ssh password? I know it's configured to auto-login GNOME. I've tried the root/toor combination but it didn't work.

cool! Did it run properly? I have some problems with the installation:

1) Copied linux.img and recovery.img to /storage/sdcard0
2) dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6 of=recovery.img_orig
3) dd if=recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6
4) reboot into recovery-mode shows the following message:

mount point /new_root/mnt/sdcard does not exist

Nah, boot via recovery only shows blank/black screen for me. I am using Linux Deploy to boot Kali, then log in to the OS via SSH. This will do for now until I get VNC working to use Linux apps that need to run with GUI such as wireshark and armitage.

Maybe request from one of the awesome devs here at XDA to modify or recompile the SGN recovery image?

Looking at your error message, perhaps you should create a directory/folder and move the image to this location?
