try to update scripts to see if it helps. Open the app, click launch, then click on settings on the top right and go to update scripts.

VNC connection failed!
failed to connect to localhost/127.0.0.1 (port 5900):

Don't exit before connecting with vnc. exit when you are done completely.

It would seem that backtrack have dropped support for ARM so for the time being we are stick at what we have, but I will try to change this

I'm curious to know if you guys are looking at doing this without VNC? I haven't found much, but here's a video of someone who seems to have figured it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxats9ejrG0

I'm hopeful that as the Ubuntu phone/tablet projects progress, we'll get some useful bits from them, since they're currently built on top of CM10.1.
