Default X11 Display Forwarding

Has anyone got X11 display forwarding to work when ssh tunneling using connectbot or any other ssh method? I'm able to ssh into my home linux box but unable to forward my display.

-Thanks

You would need an X11 server running on your phone. Is there such as thing?

Note: For those who don't know the X11 is the basis for the GUI in the UNIX / Linux universe. Users of traditional Linux machines (except for Android and the like) with a GUI are using X11.

In most cases, you're using the screen hooked up to your desktop computer or the one on a laptop. But some people use the GUI on a remote machine via SSH. In this case, the concepts of 'server' and 'client' in the X11 world are reversed. For example, the device that you wanted to use (the phone in this case) would be the 'server' and the device on which the programs are actually running would be the 'client.'
