      Any chance you can update the image to the latest version of Kali? I tried apt update and apt full-upgrade but it broke the hdmi display – so had to go back and reflash the sd card

      I used this source to update: deb
      http://kali.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib
      deb-src http://kali.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib

      Now, the problem is when I’m upgrading it. It will just restart my raspi and you will just the mouse arrow. I think it will corrupt your data. I’m stuck there.

      PS: Im using 128gb scandisk, install gparted to maximize the size.

        I read someone’s post that he replaced his sd card and it works. And upon reading again re4son kernel’s quick installation guide, they recommended sandisk extreme 32gb or sndisk extreme 32gb plus as well as Null byte. I just ordered that sd card and I’ll let you know if that works. anyway what type of sd card r u using?

      Same problem with my RPI 3B+ after writing the image to the 16 gb Sandisk card everything worked. Then i run “apt update && apt upgrade -y” after that a black screen and seems to be in some loop.

      I’m using a SanDisk 64Gb Micro Sd, so it shouldn’t be a problem with the size?

        I think size is not a problem here but the speed of sd card(although i haven’t tested it yet). re4son kernel and null byte advised to use sandisk “EXTREME” doesn’t matter if how many Gb. what r u using? kindly refer to the one’s written on it.

      It’s a SanDisk Extreme microSDHC 3 Rescue Pro Deluxe Memory Card, Red/Gold 64GB!

      I see, that’s interesting. what img did you try? Sticky-Fingers-Kali-Pi image or nexmon-kali-linux image?

        PS: try installing gparted first and increase the size of sd card uses before updating and upgrading.

      It was the Sticky-Finger-Kali-Pi, but I downloaded on the Offsec Site the official kali from the Raspberry Pi Foundation

        1. try nexmon-kali-linux image.
        2. install gparted and maximize sd card
        3. change sources.list to
        deb http://kali.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib
        deb-src http://kali.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib
        4. update and dist upgrade

        PS: I have a gut feeling that u need to use ethernet or maybe fast internet.

        maybe here’s the culprit:
        A recent Kali update introduced a bug causing the LightDM to not render properly resulting in a black screen with an arrow in the top left corner. The latest update should have fixed that but if the problem persists, we can resolve that by switching to SLiM:
        apt-get install slim
        This will install it and prompt you to select the new display manager.
        Just select “slim” and you are all set.
        Once the bug is fixed you can switch back via:

        dpkg-reconfigure slim
