    Unhappy Terminal wont go into root!?

    For some reason when i open up the shell, it is not in root. when i open the shell from the nethunter menu, it is still not in root. Before it said: root@kali and now it says u0_a81@grouper:/ $. Everything was working before. I tired running sudo su but nothing happened. How can i change back to root?

    If you open the terminal from outside the Nethunter app you will always see u0_a81@grouper:/ $. because when the Nethunter app launches the terminal shell, it automatically boots the Kali chroot and grants super user permission.

    What you need to do is type:

    su
    bootkali <--- This will take you to root@kali
    kalimenu <--- This will take you to the Kali menu

    If you tried that and it's not working, reboot your nexus 7.

    do it this way :

    first write :
    su root
    and press enter

    then write only in terminal :
    bootkali
    and press enter

    then let us know what happened

    if you have any terminal app on your device then try this :
    su
    cd system/bin
    bootkali

    root@grouper:/ # cd system/bin
    root@grouper:/system/bin # bootkali
    root@grouper:/system/bin # kalimenu
    tmp-mksh: kalimenu: not found

    I am trying to figure out if your kali installation is completely wiped or just the start up scripts .

    Check if you have this directory structure in your device .



    in case you have then for some reason the startup scripts could be missing from your bin folder .

    Get a file explorer to check if you still hve nethunter in your device .

    I had the same problem too but with a bit of trail and error and a bit of thought. I tried this:

    sudo su

    It worked! Let me know if it does for you too.

    Maybe this helps. I installed Magisk Manager. From there, I can provide superuser permissions to Terminal.
