BackTrack 5 on a Motorola Xoom

BackTrack 5 on a Motorola Xoom

BackTrack Linux

In the past few days we have been toying with some Motorola hardware, and have managed to get a basic build of BackTrack 5 (+ toolchain) on a Motorola Xoom. The possibilities look exciting as we are slowly building several experimental arm packages. Our team does not have much experience with the Android OS nor ARM hardware, but so far – so good. We will not promise an ARM release on May 10th, as this new “experiment” was not planned in any way – but we’ll do our best.

BackTrack 5 on Motorola Xoom

As of now, we have got a modified version of an Ubuntu 10.04 ARM image, chrooted on a Motorola Xoom. The tablet is running a modified, overclockable kernel (from 1.0 to 1.5 GHz). The chrooted BackTrack environment is running a VNC server, from which you can connect from the tablet itself. When run locally from the Xoom tablet, the VNC session does not lag, and the touch keyboard and touchscreen are very workable.

As expected from a chrooted environment, we are not using any custom drivers (for now), and injection and other related wireless attacks are NOT possible. Here’s a few screenshots we managed to scrounge from our dev box:

  • BackTrack on Motorola Xoom Screen 1
  • BackTrack on Motorola Xoom Screen 2
  • BackTrack on Motorola Xoom Screen 3
  • BackTrack on Motorola Xoom Screen 4
  • BackTrack on Motorola Xoom Screen 5
  • BackTrack on Motorola Xoom Screen 6
  • We hope to release a dev version of this image in a couple of weeks for other Xoom owners to play with. We’ll keep you posted!
