    Question TFT 3.5" Screen w/ Kali Arm 2.1.2-rpi2

    Hello everyone,

    I am setting up a raspberry pi with Kali 2.1.2-rpi2 on a PitFT 3.5" display. However, I receive only a white screen. I have a;ready made sure the pins are correct and it has sufficient power. We can boot the pi onto a larger HDMI screen, so there is no internal error

    Many articles online dictate the need to SSH into the pi via the use of a secondary monitor to see what I am doing and install certain drivers. While I have tried some of these steps, none seem to truly work and I am forever stuck on a white screen. I have seen plenty of people use this exact screen with Kali ARM architecture before and am wondering what I am doing wrong?

    I am using a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B w/ Kali 2.1.2-rpi2 w/ PitFT 3.5" and a ROMOSS power source.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as this error has been persistent despite all my best efforts.

    Thank you and have a nice day!

    Hi ApothLab,

    You can try Sticky Finger’s Kali-Pi:
    https://www.whitedome.com.au/kali-pi

    It comes with a kernel that works with all TFT displays, including Adafruit.

    Why don't you try the ready-to-go image:

    I hope that helps.

    Many thanks,
    Re4son
