    Kali v2.0 not booting on Utilite Pro

    This is the image I have downloaded:

    http://images.kali.org/kali-2.0-utilite.img.xz

    SHA1 sum seems OK:

    Code:
    a99ab6d487287f63931817db81eed70497e115c7 *kali-2.0-utilite.img.xz
    These are the steps I have performed (from the Utilite to the SD Card):

    Code:
    $ xz -d kali-2.0-utilite.img.xz
    # dcfldd if=kali-2.0-utilite.img of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=512k
    # poweroff
    Then I manually press the power on button, but the device starts to the pre-built Ubuntu Linux 12.04 on SSD internal disk, instead of booting to Kali v2.0.

    Tested with 2 different sd cards: 32GB and 8GB.
    The 32GB card with Kali v1.0.9.
    The Utilite Pro device booted fine with Kali v1.1.0

    What else could I check?

    did you try the 64 bit version

    try to make this

    dcfldd if=kali-2.0-utilite.img of=/dev/rdisk bs=1M

    istead of :

    dcfldd if=kali-2.0-utilite.img of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=512k

    you have to find out your disk number by typing this:

    diskutil list

    These are the images for Utilite I have found:

    https://www.offensive-security.com/k...mage-download/

    It seems there is no 32 or 64 bit version.

    instead of :

    Excuse me, but why would the "bs" parameter bother here?
    And why should 1MB be better than 512k?

    According to the "man dcfldd" :
    bs=BYTES
    force ibs=BYTES and obs=BYTES
    ibs=BYTES
    read BYTES bytes at a time
    obs=BYTES
    write BYTES bytes at a time

    Sorry, but I don't understand you.
    There is no "diskutil" tool on my Ubuntu 14.04. What Debian package is it included into?
