      I’m trying to install the latest version of Pocket-Kali (20171226-1), and want to encrypt the HDD.

      “There are two ways to install:
      1. The comfortable way with proper screen orientation but no encryption support
      – select “Kali Live” and boot into desktop
      – in Kali, run GParted and unmount the primary partition
      – run the debian-installer
      2. The 90 degree way – use this if you want to install kali in an encryption volume
      – select “Install”
      – tilt your head 90 degrees”.

      I.e. my choice is 2. But when installation starts it doesn’t find any Wi-Fi or eth0. I get the error “brcm/brcmfmac436-pcie.bin” is missing for the Wi-Fi. I can install Kali with choice 1, but then the HDD doesn’t get encrypted.

      Any suggestion? Thanks for and awesome project.

      Best regards Mattias

      Weird, I must have broken something in my last update. Let me look into that.
      For now, what happens if you continue without network, will it install the driver properly anyway?

      Hi again.

      Don’t know. I ended the installation when the error “brcm/brcmfmac436-pcie.bin” is missing for the WiFi popped up. Sorry. Went for the first way of installation, i.e. booting into Kali and unmounted the primary partition.
