How to Install:

1. Download Linux Deploy from PlayStore

2. Open it and go to settings



3. Selection Distribution: Kali and leave everything else as default, except Disk Image Size, which you should use 7128mb instead of Automatic.

3a. Normally it automatically finds your resolution, but you can change it on this page. (One of the last items.)

4. Then select Install

4a. [IMPORTANT] Be sure to be connected to a Wi-Fi network, otherwise 1.4GB will be downloaded from your Mobile Network.

4b. The downloading time is quite long, and you can't lose connection through that, otherwise the .img will be corrupted.

5. Once you see <<< end: installation on the app, download your favorite VNC client and set-up the following configurations:
Quote:

IP/Host: localhost or 127.0.0.1
Port: 5900
Password: changeme

6. You will notice that there's no tools avaliable, open LXTerminal (From the dropup icon of Kali) then type:
Quote:

sudo apt-get update

and
Quote:

sudo apt-get upgrade

Those are minor commands, to really install the tools see next step

7. Type
Quote:

sudo apt-get install kali-linux -yq

And wait for the full installation to complete, after it's sucesfully done it's good to go!

Q&A:

Which VNC Client you recommend?
I personally like Touchpad mouse settings and a full-screen view, the best free app that does the work for me is bVNC Free.

PostgreSQL gave me an error on the end of installation, is that supposed to happen?
YES, to fix PostegreSQL on Kali Linux ARM you have to whitelist on your network. You can do that by simply typing:
Quote:

sudo usermod -a -G aid_inet postgres

IceWeasel (Internet Browser) is not opening! What's wrong?
For some reason when you first install it, the browser is misconfigured. To solve that type:
Quote:

sudo apt-get install iceweasel

Happy Hacking!

Thanks so much for this!!!
Kali Linux is one of the best pentesting Linux distro.

But, I've get one error triying to install Kali

When I try to install, in the part that sais "making new disk image" the App fails. I try it changing the directory install... but not working.

Thanks in advance!!!

EDIT:
I think the errors was produced by:
First, because I hadn't 7 GB of free space
Second, the filesystem of my external sdcard (fat32) can't support files bigger tan 4 GB.

Triying again!!!

Works brilliantly. For people having problems on install. You need the following.

1. A phone not running android 4.3
2. Root
3. Busybox

In the last attempt, I lost all my data in the external sdcard.

I don't know what happend exactly, probably I change some option without being aware, and that is the result.

Backup your data before install this!!!!

Can anything lower than 7128 MB work? I don't have that amount of space free and anything else I try fails to make the image.
