    Error Installing on Nexus 7 (Android 4.4.2)

    Hi there,

    just wanted to install Kali via Linux Deploy on my Nexus 7. After creating the disk image I'm just getting :

    "I: Retrieving Release
    E: Failed getting release file http://http.kali.org/kali/dists/kali/Release
    <<< end: install"

    what the heck is wrong ?! I already searched for this problem but I seem to be the only one with that :/
    I also tried another mirror URL but getting the same error.

    My install options are :

    distribution: Kali Linux
    distribution suite: kali
    architecture: armhf
    mirror url: http://http.kali.org/kali
    installation type: file

    If I navigate to that Release file via browser on the tablet it downloads a "Release.bin" ... if I do so in my desktop it just downloads a "Release" file which I'm a bit curious about because
    of the file extension. Does it concern ?!

    would love to see that someone has a hint for that issue

    many greets!

    If your problem persists you can manually download your image from the Kali website on your computer then use adb to push it to the device as /sdcard/linux.img. then in Linux deploy go to your properties and reconfigure. Then hit start and all should mount normally.

    I am having the same issues.
    I am running the Original Kindle Fire with CM 11.
    I don't understand how to fix this to get Linux Deploy to install this.

    Move into /data/local/linux/bin (using Your file manager) and delete "wget".
