1: Extract the tarball inside a folder of the ext2 SD (/system/sd/) , yes you have RW inside this folder.
mv /sdcard/arch-arm-base.tar.bz2 /system/sd/archdroid/
tar xvvzf arch-arm-base.tar.bz2
2: Launch chroot
You can launch chroot with script named chroot.sh at root of archlinux folder,
After launching, you can see many terminal error, execute "export TERM=linux", after that you can use SSH (is better than ADB) by launching /etc/rc.d/sshd start
3: Configure your system
Its a base, so you need some package, install base-devel and yaourt (follow http://archlinux.org
wiki for that)
Warning : yaourt 0.9.3.0 or superior not work, you need to use yaourt 0.9.2
4: Some arm repository ?
add on /etc/pacman.conf :
Server = http://repo.archlinux.fr/arm/
5: About stop chroot :
Before execute exit from adb chroot, dont miss to close all Archlinux process (ssh, ...) if you not make it, you need to restart your phone before return to the chroot)
