View Full Version : How To send a command automatically through the Kaliboot terminal HELP

2015-03-18, 10:36
Hi guys,

Firstly I would like to say congratulations on the Nethunter suite for the Nexus 7 it works perfect. I have a question if I may that has stumped me for quite a while;

I have written a script that I would like to excite from a app icon, I have managed to do this fine but as I need root permissions to I call the command "su -c bootkali" this enables me to change to the root@kali from my app but now I need want to run a script .sh file but I can't seem to pass any commands through to the root@kali.
If I type the command in it works perfect but I would like to automate it on the app launch.

I thought something like this would work;

su- c bootkali /r ./test.sh

But it does not! so to summarise all I want to do it click a icon and have it load the kali root permission and run my test.sh script.

Any ideas?

Kind Regards

Hi Keith,

You need to modify the bootkali file to take in test.sh as an argument like this "update" section I highlighted:

Right now bootkali doesn't take "any" argument and run it so you can't just pass a script to it. To modify the bootkali file to take a script as an argument you will need to mount rw the /system folder on your device. From terminal on device run:

mount -o remount,rw /system /system

You can then edit /system/bin/bootkali.

If you need any help I'm also available on freenode in #nethunter.
