Hello!

I just tried to install the Kali ARM on a Raspberry Pi, exact to the Instruction.....
The image was copied to the sd-card, but it only generates one partition!?!
That`s not normal.
After I insered the sc-card to the r-pi, it won`t boot up.

IDEA?!?

Thanks.

Greats

The image that is downloaded is not appropriate for the Raspberry Pi. I found this address in twitter where you can download all images, and you can see that this one corresponding to Raspberry Pi

Hey,

now I used the Imgae from here
http://cdimage.kali.org/
and now it works!

Only Wifi is still not working, but tomorrow is another day! :-)
(P.S. I`m from germany :-) )

Remember: Use min 8GB SD-Card

Hello,

I tried many times to install Kali on my RPi, but it never boot up.
First time, I used the image from the download page then the image from http://cdimage.kali.org/ but no changes.
(I tried to install with the instuctions from site and with Win32DiskImager)

Any idea ? I have a 16GB SD-CARD SANDISK

I have Kali running on my Pi just fine but when I go to start the metasploit service it is unrecognized(#service metasploit start). Msfconsole runs properly but you are unable to do anything because it wont link to the Database. Is anyone else having this problem?

Database Service works just fine though(#service postgresql start)

I have solved the problem with the Win32DiskImager. It is how you extract it that controls if it will work. I got it working with WinRar. The first time I tried I just renamed it and the image would not work.

First do ifup wlan0 (even thout it shows in iwconfig the actual interface is down on boot) add it to /etc/network/interfaces to start at boot.e
You will also have to associate using iwconfig. Type iwconfig --help to see options.
Next you need to run dhclient to obtain an ipv4 address if that is what your using.
Finally you need to set your default gw.

Anyone ideas?

Even though this was solved, here are some suggestions for similar problems with other wireless cards.

This is regarding the realtek adapter, but adjust accordingly for your adapter.

Do an lsmod to make sure the proper kernel module is loaded.

look for 8192cu (or the appropriate module for your adapter)
if it is not loaded, load it with modprobe 8192cu (or modprobe the appropriate module for your adapter)

According to http://wiki.debian.org/rtl819x#External_Links the 8188 should be supported in this module. Also from my reading, it appears that this module does not need firmware. I find that peculiar... but it may be true.

For other wireless adapters, look on the Debian wiki for the appropriate adapter.


Sometimes it is obvious that the Linux kernel module for the wireless card is available and loaded because the wlan (or eth or ath) device shows up BUT doing an ifconfig -a and looking at the MAC address and if it is all zeros, indicates that the firmware did not load. Also reviewing the /var/log/kern.log will show what happened when the WiFi card was plugged in.

Make sure you configure your adapter using ifconfig or the methods mentioned in the forum article mentioned below. Otherwise the adapter will not be active and attached to your AP/Router. For general wireless sniffing, you won't need to attach to any AP/Router but will need it in UP state.


If you do need firmware for that driver and adapter combination, make sure you have the firmware for the wireless card you are using. It should be located in /lib/firmware. If it is NOT, the following may help.

Please note, the following is a guide. Since I don't have your particular adapter, the following is just a suggestion to give you some background information. Always remember you are fully responsible for messing around with your OS and device.

Provided your RPi has an wired ethernet connection, try one of the following:

A) apt-get may solve your problem. You may need to add "non-free" (no quotes) to the kali line in /etc/apt/sources.list in order to install non-free Realtek firmware for apt-get to find the package.

then do an apt-get install firmware-realtek (or the appropriate package for your adapter)

If apt-get can't find the package, add another line to /etc/apt/sources.list, something like this:
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian squeeze main contrib non-free

then do an apt-get install firmware-realtek (or the appropriate package for your adapter)

B) If that doesn't work,
try wget http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/non-free/f/firmware-nonfree/firmware-nonfree_0.28+squeeze1.tar.gz
Extract the firmware from the archive. look for firmware-nonfree/realtek/ and put it in /lib/firmware.
cd firmware-nonfree/; mv realtek /lib/firmware

C) If that doesn't work, try using the general explanation regarding getting and activating wireless card firmware, in this thread article http://forums.kali.org/showthread.php?270-ss808-mk808-problems-with-WiFi-(bcm40181-rtl8187)&p=12206&viewfull=1#post12206

Note regarding the above thread article: the firmware directory located within Picuntu may not have the specific firmware you need, but it is worth a try if the you can seem to apt-get the firmware.

D) If all else fails maybe looking at the wireless adapter vendor's site. For realtek, look here http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PFid=48&Level=5&Conn=4&ProdID=274&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false&Downloads=true for the drivers from realtek may be helpful.

Whichever way you install the firmware, remember to unplug and replug your wireless USB adapter so it can try and load the firmware.

Hi awesome people. I downloaded and installed the image with minimal headache, when I enter startx to launch the GUI it informs me the command can't be found, has anyone encountered this and is there a fix? Thanks for any and all help.

Hi all.
I use the TP-Link TL-WN722N (Atheros AR9271) with RPI mod. B and I can not get my Wi-Fi adapter up.
So, first explain what has already been tested:
1. Power supply is normal (2.1A input) and there is no voltage drop across the control points (T1 - T2) of the board.
2. lsusb correctly displays the connected USB device. (Device 004: ID 0cf3:9271 Atheros Communications, Inc. AR9271 802.11n).
3. lsmod shows that the relevant module is loaded (ath9k_hth).
4. ifconfig shows that i have wlan0 int and proper MAC.
5. ifconfig wlan0 up activates the LED indicator on the dongle.

The good news for me to come to an end.
1. iwconfig shows that wlan0 no wireless extensions.

Several sources I received information that my adapter does not require additional configuration. I have tried to use non-free firmware and open firmware as described in Debian Wiki, it still does not work. Perhaps I missed something, but I can not understand that. Any idea how to make it work?

[/QUOTE


Same issue here. Kali armel 1.0.5. Two reimages, four different WLAN nic's (rtl8187, rtl8188SU, RT3070).
Despite an adapter appearing to be proberly detected and initialised by mac81022 and ieee80211 subsys there's something fundamentally missing from the build that's required for the full wireless stack to operate correctly.
Couldn't see any build docos (no kernel doco files anywhere in the image) so I can't seem to progres any further.
This cost me a day of frustration before I realised it was something fundamental to the build....
Few other niggles (can't use serial console as a terminal, it's read-only and even then ttyAM0 seems to be unattached to kernel init msg output just after the HDMI is initt'ed (and I assume the framebuffer console get initted). Essentially you can't access thje RPi by serial console (not without reconfiguring inittab and a heap of other ****).
Wasted ages on this till I tried a TV (HDMI/USB keyboard).. but this isn't much use to me for my application.

ntpdate could be preinstalled for this build and pointed to an anycast or a pool.ntp.org, as well as the suggestion at install to activate the fake-hwclock module. Helps heaps with timekeeping and this debugging..

Have exactly same problem.
New Rev 000e PI, alfa 036nha and older rtl8187 adapters refuse to work - 'wlan0 no wireless extesions'.
Did apt-get update+upgrade, no help. Did apt-get install firmware-atheros and all others. No bad dmesg's.
Help please =(
Kali arm 1.0.5.

Had to install 1.0.0 and it's working fine. Updated (apt-get dist-up/up) and adapters still work.

It is at all feasible to run the Raspberry Pi Kali headless, including performing the initial config/setup via SSH? My plan is to build a small deployable aircrack-ng appliance with remote access via a 3G router. Having to plug a monitor/keyboard/mouse into the Pi would be a pain.

OK... a quick follow up from my last post about the Alfa 036H and Kali on the Raspberry Pi... I'm still having trouble getting it working. I'm sure I am missing something very simple.

If I start Network Manager "/etc/init.d/network-manager start" I get some action. The LED on the 036H starts flashing and I get a wlan0 interface (woo hoo).

wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:c0:ca:40:ed:08
UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)


But a subsequent "airmon-ng start wlan0" gives me this :-

Found 3 processes that could cause trouble.
If airodump-ng, aireplay-ng or airtun-ng stops working after
a short period of time, you may want to kill (some of) them!
-e
PID Name
1480 dhclient
1890 wpa_supplicant
3077 NetworkManager


Interface Chipset Driver


root@kali:~#

No indication of a mon1 or any other monitor mode interface created by airmon-ng. So I'm back to the question from my previous post... how can I get the Alfa 036H working (preferably without Network Manager) on Kali running on the Raspberry Pi... and preferably via a shell and not GUI.

On a side note, I also notice similar symptoms on my netbook based Kali. I get no wlan0 interface unless Network Manager is running first. But on the netbook, I can use "airmon-ng start wlan0" and I do get a mon0 interface. (eth1 is the built in Intel Wifi).

Interface Chipset Driver

Hello-
I know that some of you were facing the same problem while installing the image on an SD card.
I have tried to format my 16gb SD class 10 using win32 utility and winflash as well with no success.
The files I have used have been downloaded from all the sources you have mentioned before. There is a 1.90GB and a 2.0GB files out there that are suppossed to work with the pi.

Is there anything that I might be missing? My Pi is still not booting and when the win32 utility finishes formatting the SD card the card becomes obsolote on my windows machine, meaning that I cannot see the contents inside (I know that it is suppossed to be on a different format) but I still should be able to see them on my Mac as well but that is not the case.

Someone mentioned before that this might be due to how the file is being decompressed (I have used winrar and 7-zip) but this does not seem to work.

I am very excited to start playing with Kali and the Pi but this first step has me very frustrated.
Thanks for your support guys.

In the web GUI goto "wpa_gui" setup tool and connect to an existing WLAN and youre done !
You can do that manually as well in editing /etc/network/interfaces

allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-ssid YourSSID
wpa-psk YourPassword

You can also leave the default
allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

and simply edit the /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf file with the following

ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
update_config=1
eapol_version=1
ap_scan=1
network={
ssid="yourssid"
scan_ssid=1
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
pairwise=CCMP
group=CCMP
psk=your password
}

To not copy your key in cleartext you can calculate the passphrase with
wpa_passphrase yourssid yourpassword

which should give you something like this:
psk=01b035e084c87e1a3e348e6fbb4783202b145950789c69 1687ee0a6f71584e8b

Hello there,

I followed the instructions (rather simple ones) from the documentation's page to make an image on a 8GB SD card, and got that:

$ sudo dd if=~/Downloads/kali-linux-1.0.9-armhf/kali-linux-1.0.9-armhf.img of=/dev/disk1 bs=512k
11210+0 records in
11210+0 records out
5877268480 bytes transferred in 2673.045080 secs (2198717 bytes/sec)


There's no error, so I assume all went well, but when I put the card in a brand new Pi model B, there was no display on the HDMI port. The activity LED didn't flash at all. On the Pi itself, there was a 4-port USB 2.0 hub, but nothing else.

As a matter of comparison, I tried to boot the same image on a Banana Pi, which also refused to boot with no output.

As there's no output, how can I know what is not working? The only difference I see compared to, say, Raspbian's procedure is that the block size is usually set to 4M instead of 512k.

So, I've tried to install the kali armHF version of kali from both the cdimages page as well as the kali downloads page. Neither will boot on my PI b version (not b+). I've tried to extract the kali iso contents to the directory of the sd card and it didn't work. I've tried to use both win32diskimager and imageUSB to write the iso to the sdcard. Someone mentioned that I might need to rename a partition. I'm not sure what partition they we're referring to. The guides don't really explain in depth, and one of the links is broken. For everyone having similar problems, might someone be able to write up a definitive guide on the armHF version, or give me a couple hints? I did try the armel version meant specifically for the rpi, it did work. For my project however, I need the armHF architecture to work on my pi. Thank you.

Hi

So i just downloaded the image file of Kali from its official site and installed it to my micro sd card as im using a raspberry pi b+

Initial boot and login was successful but upon loadup of the GUI i found that all the forensic tools were missing.

Do i need to download these programs?

Yes, the image for the RPi is pretty much basic.
You might consider to apt-get install either the forensic tools you need or the complete metapackage "kali-linux-forensic" (not sure how much space they need, though).

trying to load Kali 1.1.0-rpi with LUKS encryption on my RPI B+. copy & pasted all the commands but when I mounted the SD card on the RPI, I get a kernel panic not sync UFS unable to mount root fs on unknown block, with a kdb> prompt. I can mount the sd card on my laptop and decrypt the LUKS partition. It contains the usual folders but boot, home, root, lists/partial, selinux, srv and sys are emply folders on the encrypted folder and the /mnt/backup folder. What is missing? How can I fix it?

if you only have just a 8 gig card then better try a smaller metapackage but kali-linux-full
but if you ask what else you can do then let me know if you have more storage available from usb drive (doesnt matter if it is a stick or hdd). if yes i would write down a mini how-to about an alternate way to run kali on rpi

I'm trying to install kali linux on a raspberry pi 2 following the documentation (http://docs.kali.org/kali-on-arm/install-kali-linux-arm-raspberry-pi)
I've downloaded the raspberry pi 2 image from offensive-security.com, validated the sha1sum, and created a bootable SD card with dd.
Now when I boot the raspberry pi from the SD card I see no output at all. I have another SD card with Raspbian and it boots just right from this other card. I've checked in another computer the kali SD card that I just created and I've noticed that the /boot file system is empty.

Is this normal or is it due to a failure during the dd process (apparently it finished successfuly)?.

I fixed my problem. It was related to the HDMI-VGA converter I was using. I connected the hdmi ouput directly to a hdmi screen and it worked fine. In raspbian I had to modify the settings in config.txt, but there's no such file in kali linux.
I've found this other thread which addresses a very similar issue
https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=68598&p=500327


I copied config.txt to the boot partition of my SD card and I get the video output on VGA screen now :D

I was able to install Kali Linux ARM image onto my RPi2 using DDRescue -f utility (running Ubuntu on my main PC).
It absolutely refused to be installed using the guideline recommended DD Command.
Even it install, the Graphical Interface is unstable. It has crashed and refused to re-start at least 3 times.
The only option is to re-download the image onto the 8GB card.

Not to mention, the issues with the wireless USB adaptors, I would say the latest version of Kali, needs a major revision...

Hi, I've installed Kali to a 32gb SD card, with no issues and it boots fine in my Raspberry PI 2 B. However, I've been trying to make the remaining space a LUKS encrypted persistent partition. I've done this successfully on a USB pendrive before, but I'm having trouble with the SD Card:

My wireless adapter seems to be unhappy with me and my RPi 2 Mod. B. I'm running the latest Kali ARM image on my Pi, and it's all fine and well, except for the adapter. It picks up that a wireless adapter is connected, but doesn't let me connect to a network. Says "device is not managed". My ethernet adapter is fine, but the weird thing is that none of the adapters are called normal things. There is no "wlan0" or anything, just "lo", along with the adapters' weird names: "enxe84e0634f2a8" (which I'm pretty sure is the wireless one, it's followed by a bunch of stuff including "Nickname:"<WIFI@REALTEK>"") and "enxb827eb953357". Why do they have those names? Not only do they have those names, but I can't do anything with them. I can access the internet, but it's slow, and when I use Airmon-ng, it doesn't do anything, and reports that it can't monitor mode the adapter. Any help?

I've been having issues of my own with this build, but the issue your facing is an easy solution (sort of).
I found that if you open terminal and do a quick

apt-get update

then

apt-get upgrade

and give it a sec, you should get some menus with aircrack-ng and nmap and some others. It's not everything we are supposed to get, but it's something, and if you want other specific scripts you can just APT-GET INSTALL them. ("apt-get install ophcrack" for example)

I found out that the rPi image is basically an empty image. You have to install the tools you want/need using apt-get. The meta-packages is a good start.

Hi richtercamden,

The new images are using persistent interfaces. You can switch back to the classic interface naming convention (wlan0, eth0, etc.) by adding the following keywords to the first line in your /boot/cmdline.txt:


net.ifnames=0 biosdevname=0

Don't forget to mount /boot:


sudo mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /boot

Hello folks,

I'm having issues with installing Kali-ARM for Raspberry Pi 2.
Being fairly new to the Pi with Kali I don't know where the error is being generated from.
Sad enough, even Google couldn't find me a solution. In the image you can see the error.

I tried flashing the image on a mini SD card (SanDisk Class 10 16GB) with 'dd' and 'Win32DiskImager'
Neither worked. Plus, I had to restore the partitions on the SD card since the image messed it up to
only viewing 60MB afterwards and having 14GB unallocated.

Hope someone can help me out here. :)

I tried mounting the Kali IMG (from two different sites) with terminal and with Apple-Pi Baker app, then tried it on my Windows computer using Win32Imager and still boots up to the rainbow screen.

After booting up, I wanted to update. I did the following:


apt update

with no problem. However, when I issue the dist-upgrade command:


apt dist-upgrade

At the 50% mark of the install, the system crashes and restarts, only to crash and restart again.

cloned from github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8188eus (v5.3.9 commit: d3de55d)
added "blacklist rtl8188eu" to the conf file
did a make & make install
at this point, aside from some warnings (not great, but hoping not fatal) and appeared to build and install correctly.
rebooted
Checked ifconfig iwconfig and then plugged in the adapter. Comes up as wlan1 but I'm not sure it's totally working. I can connect to a AP with built-in wlan0, but not wlan1.
It shows up as disabled (as does wlan0 until connected) in the taskbar
I can take down wlan1 but can't configure in monitor mode. I can change modes between "auto" and "managed", but attempting "monitor" mode results in error (-19). Seems the driver can't configure that mode from this adapter. From what I've read it is possible, but that's also from folks running VMs on x86 or raspian on the pi.

Any suggestion to get this working, or know of a guide to get the TL-WN722N v3.28 working on kali 2020.3?
Thanks

Hello. It is required to increase the size of the partition /boot. I tried it on an external system through Gparted, but when applying a change to increase the volume, for some reason an error pops up. Tell me if there is a way to set the size /boot size in the installation iso-image to more than ~ 126 MB? For example 500Mb... In how the file iso-image says which section should take up how much space?

I was trying to install the Kali Linux ARM image kali-linux-2020.4-rpi4-nexmon.img.xz on my old Raspberry pi 2 v1.1. The install says minimum of 8GB SD, but the image decompresses to 9.3 Gb so it won't fit on an 8GB SD. I might be doing something wrong, but maybe the install notes need to be updated for a 16Gb minimum SD?

HI,

I am trying to boot Kali on Pi 4.

it starts with a rainbow screen, then proceeds with loading but immediately aborts and repeats the cycle again.

like as on an image below.

Any ideas?

Hello everyone. The latest version of x32 (4.19.127-Re4son-v7l+) potassium for raspberry 4b. I can not set up auto login. According to the instructions, you should uncomment in the file:
/etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
lines:
autologin-user=kali
autologin-user-timeout=0
pam-autologin-service=lightdm-autologin
but when the system is rebooted, the window with the login and password still hangs.
Can anyone suggest what I'm doing wrong?

Hello I'm using Rpi4 with 2021.2 32bit as recommended. Bluetooth does not exist. I have tried the suggestions:
sudo systemctl enable --now uart.service - this says uart does not exist

i have tried rkill unblock, systemctl enable, and anything I could find on the internet. I can never get the icon to appear in the top corner. When I go to the app menu
and open the bluetooth manager or adapters I get nothing. There is a flicker like the app is going to open but it disappears immediately.
There was a post on youtube saying that the bluez package is causing the issue. I tried to downgrade but there is a dependency that can't be removed.

Has anyone gotten bluetooth to work?
