//----[ Announcement ]----\\



hi guys DooMLoRD & anantshri present to u:

BACKTRACK 5 on SGS2


all the work was done by anantshri, i mostly assisted by testing it on my SGS2 and modding it slightly so that it will work properly for SGS2... dont forget to thank him!

i will try n keep it short and simple...

for more details u can read the original thread at X10 sub-forums...

[DEV] BACKTRACK 5 on Xperia X10 chroot


[ Screenshots ]


on startup (shell):




in GUI:



phone + BT5 GUI:





[ Requirements ]


[ How To : File Setup ]

u need to do this only once
  1. download the files from the links provided in this thread
  2. extract the files using 7zip to a temporary folder (needs 3.3GB free on that drive)
  3. connect ur SGS2 to PC and mount USB storage
  4. create a folder named 'bt' (without quotes) in the root of ur sdcard and copy the bt.img in that folder
  5. also place the file bt5_sgs2_shell_scripts_v2.zip in root of sdcard, this file has to be flashed via recovery
  6. once u verify that the above is correct then un-mount usb storage
  7. reboot into recovery and flash the file bt5_sgs2_shell_scripts_v2.zip stored in root of sdcard (or if u are using CWM app then just select the file for flashing and the app will do the rest )
  8. once ur phone reboots into OS just check the /sdcard/bt folder
  9. final directory structure should look like this:
    • /sdcard/bt/bt
    • /sdcard/bt/bt.img
    • /sdcard/bt/installbt.sh
    • /sdcard/bt/startbt
    • /sdcard/bt/stopbt
  10. once u verify that the above is correct then u can proceed


[ How To : Launch BT ]
  1. start Terminal Emulator app on ur SGS2 and enter the following commands step by step (accept/allow any SuperUser request/popup that u may receive)
    • su
    • cd /sdcard/bt
    • sh installbt.sh
    • startbt
    • bt
  2. now u are in BackTrack5 shell

  3. to launch GUI (vncserver) enter the following command
    • ui

    now note the number N shown localhost:N
    e.g. as u can see from the above image that "New 'X' desktop is localhost:1", so N=1
    the vncserver is running at (5900 + N, N=1 ; so server port is 5901)

  4. now launch androidVNC app on phone and fill in the detials as follows
    • Nick : bt
    • Address : 127.0.0.1
    • Port : 5901
    • Password : 12345678
    • Username : <leave it blank>
    • Color Format : 24-bit color (4 bpp)

    inside vnc window select input mode (i personally recommend the following)
    • TouchPad (here your screen works like a big touchpad use it to navigate mouse.)
  5. and then press connect... now u are in BackTrack GUI!

  6. if u want to exit/close BT5 then u need to follow these steps:
    • close the androidVNC app (Menu -> Disconnect)
    • go back into Terminal Emulator app and enter the following commands
      u should be at this shell [email protected]:~#
      • killui
      • exit
    • now u will get back to this shell> #
    • now enter the following commands to stop bt and exit
      • stopbt
      • exit
      • exit
    • u can now exit the Terminal Emulator app
    • i would also recommend that u reboot ur phone


[ Important Info ]

root password is 12345678



[ Download Links ]
  1. update.zip package containing shell scripts, busybox (which gets installed to temporary location) [to be flashed via recovery]
    this will not disturb/conflict with busybox of ur ROM/CF-Root kernel

    bt5_sgs2_shell_scripts_v2.zip (~800KB)

  2. main bt.img
    these links are 7zip archives split into 50mb files, u will need to download the following:
    total size: 486MB

    also uploading to mediafire for mirroring...

[ Tips n Tricks! ]
  1. if u have ur device (SGS2) connected over wifi u can connect to the BT5 vncserver running on ur phone!! u will just need to connect to
    <ip_address_of_phone>:<portno>



  2. most of the startup/launching commands can be executed even through adb shell

==== Reserved ===

few pointers as this has been asked many times

1) Monitor Mode will not work till someone tried to compile a custom wifi drivers with monitor mode enables, in that case also firmware should allow it.

2) Those using android-vnc-viewer and facing difficulty in navigation check various input modes.
These 3 works the best for me.
  1. Touch Mouse; D-Pad Pan
  2. Mouse pointer control mode
  3. TouchPad (here your screen works like a big touchpad use it to navigate mouse.)
