I'm trying to create a chroot for my rooted android phone. I want to do this with the arch_bootstrap.sh script found on the wiki but I can't find an ARM repository.

My PC is x86_64 Arch Linux and my mobile is a HTC Desire running Cyanogenmod 7

Linux is only the kernel, everything else is different on Android. Are you expecting something similar to Debian or OpenWRT? – Steve-o Aug 25 '11 at 8:51
Yes, I know. I was talking about arch linux; I never mentioned linux in the context of the kernel. Arch Linux is a distro of GNU Linux – Will03uk Aug 25 '11 at 12:56

No. There is no official Arch Linux repository for ARM. However, there is a fork of Arch for ARM: http://archlinuxarm.org/
