    Working with Kali ARM Images

    Kali ARM images are built using live-build, and are compressed in a squashfs image. Some arm installations require that you extract the ARM image filesystem on to a USB drive or SD card.

    To read the full document, check our Working with Kali ARM Images article.


    If you have any issues with this procedure, please post them in this thread.

    When i try to unzip the armel i get an error while extracting. I am using Ubuntu 12.10 on a dell inspiron 1545. I had no problems running under VM (not that it relates). Just the armel is giving me issues. Any further direction on how to compile the armel to an SD for use with my nokia n900 would be very helpful, just so i don't brick up my devise.

    Edit:

    get output with ~$ gunzip (file.gz)-----> gzip: kali-linux-1.0-armhf.img.gz: unexpected end of file. Might their be tools i am missing or am just missing something right in front of my face. Any help or facepalm would be great i belive i am the only person looking for this info. PST ASAP

    I used Ubuntu 12.04 to unpack this and didn't have any issues. I know that doesn't really help, sorry.

    @PWN900: When you downloaded something check the MD5Sum or SHA1Sum to avoid execration problems.

    I have been using Linux on raspberry pi to expand the images. The instructions on the web site say to just dd the image to the SD card, but what works for me is

    xzcat mimagefile | dd of=/dev/sda bs=16M

    Progress indicators are nice.

    To check things, I run

    fdisk /dev/sda

    And print the partition table without writing it. If it finds a partition table the process probably went well. I should have caught that the image was compressed from the name, and realized that the web page needs to be updated.
