    Lightbulb SOLUTION: Guide to get Raspberry Pi 3 internal Bluetooth working with Kali Linux

    Hi all,

    I finally got around to play with the on-board Bluetooth of the Raspberry Pi 3 and found a way to get it to work with Kali:

    EDIT 20/03/2017: I've created a new kernel package that does the entire setup automatically. No need for the steps I've posted before.

    Head over to the Re4son-Kernel site for instruction --> https://www.whitedome.com.au/re4son/re4son-kernel.




    Happy hacking,

    Curious if you've included the g_ether kernel module?
    Comes in very handy as you can just plug the USB cable into to a laptop, power and console in without having to set anything up.


    For example:

    Hi aramova,

    It's included. I've taken over all "USB Gadget Support" settings from upstream.

    hey, i followed your tutorial, but I have a problem.

    I am using the pi 3.

    i followed all your steps, had a problem with running "sudo systemctl enable hciuart" it just says "no such file or directory"

    but then i did the following commands:

    "agent on"
    agent registered"
    default-agent"
    default agent request successful"
    scan on"
    no default controller available"

    Not sure what I have done wrong, but it won't scan.

    Any ideas?

    Hi walker94,

    Which steps did you follow? More precisely, which image did you install?
    I've just performed the following steps to get bluetooth working:

    1. Download armhf image from here: https://whitedome.com.au/re4son/download/kali-linux-2-1-2-armhf-re4son/ and write to sd card
    2. apt update && apt full-upgrade -y
    3. reboot
    4. systemctl start hciuart
    5. systemctl start bluetooth
    6. bluetoothctl
    > agent on
    > default-agent
    > scan on

    And it should all be working.

    Please let me know how you go,
    Re4son
