    Kali Linux 2020.2a doesn't run on Raspberry pi 4 model b 8gb ram

    Hi,

    I recently have a new 8Gb ram raspberry pi and trying to install Kali Linux on It but the process was faliure.

    I've download Kali images from https://www.offensive-security.com/k...ux-arm-images/

    Tried whith this two:
    1- Kali Linux RaspberryPi 2, 3 and 4 2020.2a
    2- Kali Linux RaspberryPi 2 (v1.2), 3 and 4 (64-Bit) 2020.2a

    But in both cases I have one error in boot loader telling me that "start4.elf: is not compatible"

    I think It can be something related to the new board with 8gb ram because in my 4gb ram raspberry I could install Kali successfully.

    I tried to update the raspberry boot loader to the latest version but It didnt't work.

    Any help would be wellcome.

    Thank you!!

    Same issue, was really excited to the 64-bit Pi version but no joy.

    So I found this artical https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/v...?f=56&t=275913

    And I replaced the *.dat and *.elf files in the boot folder, great was able to load kali but I am stuck at the login screen at the moment. Looks like the USB isnt working.

    Nou we have a new issue to overcome...

    Same here, I'm using Raspberry Pi 4B 4GB, and it can only detect 2.4 ghz wlan device. I'm using the latest provided Kali image.
