Kali on Zero

Wed Mar 09, 2016 3:19 pm

Hi everybody,

I got my RPi Zero today and managed to install Kali (kali-2.1-rpi.img) on my device, however even with updating the firmware I can't get a HDMI output from my Zero. Steps that I've done:

1. Flashed https://images.offensive-security.com/a ... rpi.img.xz to my microSD Card using Win32DiskImager.
2. Connected my microSD Card to my RPi 3 running Raspbian and ran the follwing commands:

Code: Select all

sudo fdisk -l
sudo mkdir /media/HDD1
sudo mkdir /media/HDD2
sudo chmod 777 /media/HDD1
sudo chmod 777 /media/HDD2
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/HDD1
sudo mount /dev/sda2 /media/HDD2
sudo ROOT_PATH=/media/HDD2 BOOT_PATH=/media/HDD1 rpi-update
3. The update went successful, so I took out the microSD Card and put it in my RPi Zero.

It seems that the Zero boots up as the lights on it flash and my WiFi Dongle connected to it also starts flashing. However I do not get any signal on my monitor connected to it and since I don't have ethernet access to my Zero, I can't even ssh into it. So I'm stuck.

Any ideas?

P.S: Raspbian works flawlessly on my Zero which I've tried it using the same micorSD Card. So no HDMI/microSD Card problem.

Not an answer to your problem, but install xrdp and you can access your desktop from a windows box.

I am trying to install Kali on a Raspberry Pi Zero, not on a Raspberry Pi 3.

Turns out I needed a working "config.txt" file on my boot directory! I am using a HDMI to VGA converter btw.

Has anyone else had this issue on the Zero? I haven't gotten my hands on a Zero yet, but I installed Kali on my Pi2 and it works flawlessly.
