- write it to your microSD card (Windows=Win32 Disk Imager, Linux=dd):
Minimum recommended card sizes:
- 8GB for Kali-Pi MSF – basic Kali MSF package (this image)
- 16GB for Kali-Pi Full – install kali-linux-full and OpenVAS (very tight)
- 32GB for Kali-Pi Complete – Install the above plus Snort and other goodies
- Extend the file system if your card is > 8GB (See fdisk howto here)
- Boot up your Pi and ssh into it with user root and password toor
- Change passwords (defaut: root=toor, pi=raspberry, ftp/pi=raspberry, vnc/root=toortoor)
- Set up the screen with the re4son-pi-tft-setup tool:
cd /usr/local/src/re4son-kernel_4* mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /boot ./re4son-pi-tft-setup -u #(updates re4son-pi-tft-setup to the latest version) ./re4son-pi-tft-setup -h #(lists all options - pick your screen from the list) ./re4son-pi-tft-setup -t <your screen> -d /home/pi # Say "Y" when asked if you want the console to be displayed on the TFT screen reboot
- NOTE: If you have an Adafruit 3.5″ or a 4DSystems screen, please install the “old” kernel for now. For Adafruit 2.8″ please select “No” when asked to enable the “on/off button”.
- Optional: enable “Automatic boot into Sticky Finger’s Touch Interface”:
cd /usr/local/src/re4son-kernel_4* ./re4son-pi-tft-setup -b cli # Boot into command line interface ./re4son-pi-tft-setup -a pi # Enable auto-login for user "pi"
- Edit “/home/pi/Kali-Pi/menu” to define your screensize, enable/disable screensaver and PIN:
## Adjust these: export KPSCREENSIZE=2.8 ## Screensize in inch, Options= 3.5, 2.8 export KPLAYOUT=9 ## Number of buttons - Currently only 9 is supported export KPPIN=0 ## Set to "1" to enforce PIN authentication, run ./set-pin to change PIN export KPTIMEOUT=2 ## Minutes before screensaver kicks in, comment out for screensaver off ## End adjustments
Reboot and enjoy 🙂
To pair Bluetooth devices, just start the bluetooth services:
systemctl enable bluetooth service bluetooth start systemctl enable hciuart systemctl start hciuart.service
You are now ready to pair your devices, just like this:
[bluetooth]# agent on
Default agent request successful
[bluetooth]# scan on
[bluetooth]# pair 00:1F:xx:xx:xx:xx
Attempting to pair with 00:1F:xx:xx:xx:xx
[bluetooth]# trust 00:1F:xx:xx:xx:xx
[CHG] Device 00:1F:xx:xx:xx:xx Trusted: yes
[bluetooth]# connect 00:1F:xx:xx:xx:xx
Attempting to connect to 00:1F:xx:xx:xx:xx
Voila – there it is, Bluetooth device connected.
