Welcome to the thread on Kali NetHunter for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
If you don't know what Kali NetHunter is, well, it's the entire Kali Linux operating system in a chroot on your phone, plus a bunch of awesome apps for executing exploits, fixing things, doing cool things. It goes on, I suppose.
I'm gonna be honest guys, I'm not a security person. When it comes to security, I'm more of a Paul Blart.
What I do know though, is that there is apt-get, and apt-get is life.

The answer to all your questions, generally the answer is YES, IT CAN DO THAT.
Most AOSP based ROMs should be supported!
The updater zip will add a few files to your /system partition, and install all of the NetHunter apps to your /data partition.
The chroot is located in /data/local, so you don't have to worry about your system partition being full. It's full read/write capable.
Understand that the zip will replace your current kernel with a completely different one.
This is necessary because most stock or custom kernels don't provide the drivers needed to operate most of Kali NetHunter's features.
Current version: 3.15.3 (stable, 2016-12-17)
Please be careful to download the right version based on this table:
N900W8 & N900T: hltecan
N900K, N900L, & N900S: hltekor
CyanogenMod 12.1 & SlimRom 5.1: lollipop
CyanogenMod 13.0 & SlimRom 6.0: marshmallow
Nightly TWRP flashable zips are located at: https://build.nethunter.com/nightly/
Please make sure your phone boots fine and runs fine before flashing NetHunter. It's confusing when people report bugs that exist in CyanogenMod by itself.
The Kali chroot and apps are installed on your data partition (in /data/local for chroot). To initialize the chroot and install Kali Linux, you need to start the Kali NetHunter app.
The NetHunter installer will automatically install SuperSU in system mode, which I consider to be more stable. Since NetHunter already modifies your system partition, there is no need to use systemless SuperSU anyways.
FULL FRESH INSTALL STEPS
- Optional: Flash CyanogenMod/SlimRom installer zip
- Optional: Flash Gapps if you want them (preferably OpenGapps pico)
- Boot into device
- Complete setup wizard
- Reboot into recovery
- Flash kernel-nethunter-hlte* and nethunter-generic-armhf-kalifs-full-rolling zips in any order.
- Boot into device
- Open the NetHunter app
- Use the Kali Chroot Manager to finish the installation
- You're done!
Going from 3.0.0 and up, all you have to do is flash the new build in recovery and wipe dalvik cache.
UPDATING YOUR ROM
To get all your NetHunter and SuperSU functions back after flashing a new ROM, just flash the ~60 MB update-nethunter-* zip again.
RUNNING WIFI PENETRATION TESTS
The internal WiFi chipset of the Galaxy Note 3 is not capable of running services which use monitor mode such as Wifite. For this, you will need to use a monitor mode capable WiFi adapter through a microUSB OTG adapter.
As for compatible adapters, I highly recommend the Alfa Networks AWUS036NEH (eBay) which uses the Ralink RT3070 chipset. There are currently no monitor mode supported Wireless-AC adapters available.
Once plugged in, you can run the command from Kali terminal to turn on your adapter:
[email protected]:~# ip link set wlan1 up
RAN INTO AN ISSUE OR BUG?
In order for me to help you, you have to at minimum reply with:
- The link to the exact zip you downloaded
- Your device model (hlte, hltecan, hltesovietrussia, etc.)
- The name of the ROM you're flashing it on
- The version and build date of the ROM you're flashing it on
- A complete description of your problem
- Optional: An audio recording of you reading this entire post
If your issue is during the installation (ex. flashing the NetHunter zip), then please collect a TWRP recovery.log for me.
If you found a problem and were able to fix it, and no one's mentioned it in the thread already, it would be kind to state the issue and your fix for others to make use of as well.
You can join me and the other NetHunter developers on IRC at the #nethunter room on freenode to more handily diagnose problems together.
I apologize, but I can't do house calls at this time.
You may be able to fix some bugs by updating to the latest bootloader and modem for your device.
See: (Direct Download) Latest Bootloaders & Modems
- USB Keyboard & VNC - Google Keyboard, AOSP Keyboard, CM Keyboard do not work due to a depth bug, use Hacker's Keyboard as a workaround.
- Terminal App - Full screen programs like nano or vi are unusable unless you use the resize command. (always type resize when opening a new terminal window)
For the kernel included in NetHunter for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, you can find the sources here: https://github.com/jcadduono/idleKernel-note3
See the Kali NetHunter installer source here: https://github.com/offensive-security/kali-nethunter
See the Kali NetHunter app source here: https://github.com/offensive-security/nethunter-app
It is powered by idleKernel, however none of the idleKernel scripts (ikconfig, usb control, kernel tweaks) are available by default. I recommend installing idleKernel zip (non-NetHunter) from the idleKernel thread and then flashing the NetHunter updater or kernel installer over idleKernel. You will then have all of idleKernel and Kali NetHunter's features at your disposal.
I am not affiliated with Offensive Security. They seem like cool guys though.
I'm not even a novice when it comes to security and penetration. I'm just a simple system administrator with a passion for breaking Android.
Please restrain yourselves from asking me security related questions.
NOT SO MUCH AS SEEN ON MR. ROBOT, BUT PROBABLY EVEN BETTER
