    Question Kali on GPD Pocket 7, the world's smallest full-featured laptop

    Hello people. While I write there is quite of an ongoing hype on the /r/GPDPocket subreddit on how to install Kali on the GPD Pocket 7, AKA 'the world's smallest computer'. For those who haven't heard about this tiny jewel, below is what I am talking about. All credits to evilsocket for testing it out and for the image:



    The thing was 1516% funded on Indiegogo and sports a quad-core Intel Atom x7-Z8750 CPU at 1.60Ghz, 8Gb DDR3 RAM, a 128Gb Samsung eMMC for storage, a 7000 mAh battery, wifi, bluetooth, HDMI port and all the things. No, the internal wifi adapter doesn't seem to support packet injection, you'll need an external adapter. I got mine from Aliexpress.

    What people are doing is flashing an unlocked BIOS that allows booting from USB among other tweaks (which I have done without any issue), booting and installing ad-hoc Ubuntu or Xubuntu images (provided by nexus511 here) from a pendrive and then installing all the Kali tools they need via scripts like Katoolin or manually. Some did the same, but with Arch linux instead. Some are even dual booting the stock Windows 10 Home and one of the linux distros above. Look here and here for examples.

    I was wondering if anybody here in the forums got Kali x64 properly installed on their GPD Pocket 7 and, in that case, what the steps taken. The little device seems like the perfect pentesting companion and has enough power and battery life to handle any pentesting task. Plus, the manufacturer had in mind to ship the device with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS as well as Windows 10 so it should have almost perfect linux compatibility.

    EDIT: re4son has made an excellent work of providing a ready to use, working Kali linux ISO for the GPDPocket. You can download it from his website here: https://whitedome.com.au/re4son/pocket-kali/

    Nope, you are the first one. If you can boot other Linux distros i don't think there will be a problem with kali. I would test hardware compatibility using kali live. Nice picture, your PC looks really cool.

    Picture is not mine, all credit goes to evilsocket for trying this thing out. AFAIK any distro will run into issues like wrong display rotation, touchscreen not working, audio not working, wrong keyboard layout etc. That's why nexus511 provided ready to use images with most things already fixed, but unfortunately no kali image as of today.

    This custom ISO is developed by re4son. The long time member of forums and a contributor of kali-linux. He did a great work.

    I do agree on the great work done, and he is constantly mantaining the ISO as well. Should we consider this an official Kali release then?
