The users instruction is same as Kali on Raspberry Pi2, follow these instructions:
- Get a nice fast 8 GB micro SD card or eMMC.
- Download the Kali Raspberry Pi2 image from our downloads area.
- Use the dd utility to image this file to your microSD card. In our example, we use a microSD which is located at /dev/sdb. Change this as needed.
- This process will wipe out your SD card. If you choose the wrong storage device, you may wipe out your computers hard disk.
- xzcat kali-$version-rpi2.img.xz | dd of=/dev/sdb bs=512k
- This process can take awhile depending on your device speed and image size.
Once the dd operation is complete, boot up the Raspberry Pi2 with the microSD plugged in. Log in to Kali (root / toor), that’s it, you’re done!
