Does/should this work with other phones besides the Xperia X10?

Bundle Link : http://bit.ly/iNHTS0 <- contains list of all 3 files in one bundle.

Note : uploading in one alternate location : mediafire will give its link soon.

======== Instructions =============

*********** ESSENTIALS ******************

  1. Rooted Android. tested on 2.2 however should work on 2.1 and 1.6 also. (if you use custom rom's you meet the criteria)
  2. Busybox configured (although it gets automatically configured @ rooting)
  3. Android terminal application. (I use android terminal emulator)
  4. Android VNC Viewer
********************************************

********** STEP's *************************

  1. download all 3 parts of image and place them in single folder.
  2. extract using first file and you will get following files
    1. bt
    2. bt.img
    3. startbt
    4. stopbt
    5. installbt.sh
  3. Copy these files on your phone under /sdcard/bt
  4. using terminal emulator run following commands
    Code:
      su
      cd /sdcard/bt
      sh installbt.sh
  5. Now your BT should be configured automatically.
  6. to use your BackTrack you can use following commands.
    1. startbt <- mounts and prepares the system for usage.
    2. stopbt <- unmounts and free up all resources.
    3. bt <- a command line version of BT chroot.
  7. Inside bt shell.
    1. ui <- will start vncserver (default password is 12345678, you can change it using vncpasswd command on bt shell)
    2. killui <- stops the running vncserver.
  8. Any Available VNC client can be used to connect to the BT GUI.
    1. Nick : BackTrack (bt for short)
    2. address : localhost
    3. port : 5901
    4. password : 12345678
    5. inside vnc window select input mode (following works 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.)
*********** DO CHECK POST 3 after tonight ******************
Post 3 will be updated to be used as a catalogue of tips and tricks for all things related to this distro..

========= TIPS and TRICKS ==================
this section is for those who want to make simmilar image from base image on backtrack.

ohk so the basic challenge is
1) BacckTrack image is for Xoom and have following limitation w.r.t. Xperia X10.
a) File is 4.9 GB (vfat has limitation of 4 GB max)
b) vncserver resolution is 1280x800 per xoom.
2) installation script and setup script doesn't allow you to move in and out of BT.
3) it used loop2 for image mounting which conflicts with APP2SD.


so I have made following changes.
1) resized image to 3.3 GB (if space get filled we can extend image to upto 700 mb more.)
2) inserted my custom ui and killui code i use @ ubuntu.
3) provided startbt stopbt bt and installbt.sh scripts for all work.
4) changed loop no to 254 and hence this code is compatible with my ubuntu image effectively you can keep both in same sdcard...

I am attaching a log file for part 1 of the image work as this is very tricky.
The trick is if you create a new file of 3.3 GB you get limited set of inodes which get filled easily. so the command mke2fs must be supplied with inode numbers that you want to be build.

check attached txt for details.

How to decompress bt.7z.001,002,003 , After dowload 3 file by Windows OS.
