Is there a nethunter version available for US S7 devices with the Snapdragon chipset?

Over-quoting much, eh?

Not as far as I know, sorry. But you can try and find a Canadian handset, probably... or international version from practically any country on ebay. They are mostly the same with minor variations (be careful about Chinese version, as usual, even if it's genuine you might have LTE issues), just confirm that sim card and bands are compatible with your intended carrier (I think both AT&T and T-Mobile are usually no problem with usual 3-band devices but still do double-check, especially the LTE part if you need it).

Can I somehow port Nethunter to the US snapdragon based S7 devices or is it just not possible.

What would be the best way to completely uninstall nethunter without reflashing entire rom?

There's no Nougat Kernel for this device, that's why you couldn't find it. You have to use the marshmallow kernel and custom rom (hydra-rom or any 6.0 based roms) if you want nethunter. If you try to install a marshmallow kernel with a nougat custom rom your device will probably bootloop.

Is maybe NetHumter kernel version for lineage os 14.1? I saw that is possible to make monitor mode with support paket injection in interne wifi card from sources of this project: https://github.com/seemoo-lab/nexmon

i tried compile LineageOS 14.1 kernel with mods of NetHunter but i got much errors :/
Could be nice to have Nethunter with support monitor mode without usb wifi card ;)

Theres a magisk Module that enables some nethunter features eg on lineage os, works but not everything is perfect. Some could check it out though.
Search nethunter in official magisk module manager

This module add only modded chroot systemless from nethunter which have less possibility than Hydra ROM + Nethunter from this topic.
I wanted LineageOS 14.1 + nethunter kernel + nethunter chroot + nexmon drivers(to use wifi tools without USB wifi adapter) :p
But for now Hydra ROM + Nethunter as Second ROM is the best option i think :p of course if you want have main ROM Stock or another than Nethunter.

Hi ,,, what about G930P (sprint) and G930V (verizon) ,,, which one should i download for them ?

You can check if your device is compatible by using Phone INFO

If your device type is herolte than you need download kernel-nethunter-herolte-* if heroltekor than kernel-nethunter-heroltekor-*.
If you have herolte and after installation of this nethunter you get laggs. You can try my build of Nethunter for LineageOS14.1 for herolte here.

stuck while installing


I've been trying for about 10 hours now to install Nethunter and I start giving up. Here are the infos you need:

The link to the exact zip you downloaded:
Unfortunately I can't post complete links, due to permissions, but this is the structure of the nightly build site of kali nethunter.

Your device model: Samsung Galaxy S7 - G930F

The name of the ROM you're flashing it on: Stock ROM of Samsung (G930FXXU1DQHY and CSC G930FDDX1DQHY. The operating system of this firmware is Android 7.0 , with build date Tue, 22 Aug 2017 07:31:48 +0000. Security patch date is 2017-08-01, with changelist 11104523) as well as LineageOS (lineage-14.1-20190224-nightly-herolte-signed.zip )

The version and build date of the ROM you're flashing it on --> Stock ROM see above, Lineage v. 4.1, from 2019-02-24

A complete description of your problem:
So I tried different variations. First I installed TWRP. Then I tried flashing the kernel, which wasn't working, because my data partition wasn't mounted. Thats I wiped the data partition (like in the tutorial). After that, flashing the kernel worked. After flashing, I tried starting the phone in order to run the setup again, without success. When starting, I'm stuck after the Screen with "Samsung Galaxy S7". The screen appears, it takes one or two seconds, phone reboots, same thing again, phone reboots and then it boots to TWRP. Then I tried installing Lineage. After doing so, I was able to initialize the phone. Then I tried booting back to TWRP in order to install the kalifs zip. When I both times used the newest version from 2019 (which I would prefer), this didn't work. There have been various errors. When trying to use the "old" version from 2016 (so 3.15.2), the installation proceeded and I was able to boot the device.
Then, I tried running the Nethunter App. It told me, that I need to install root, as well as busybox. But no matter what I did, I couldn't get pass this screen. I tried using CF Autoroot to root the device, I tried setting it in Lineage itself under the "Allow root" option. Therefore, I had to flash the Lineage SU addon zip through TWRP. Both not changing anything in the app. I tried manually downloading the APK of Busybox. One time, installation was working, one time it told me it needs root, even though SuperSU was installed. However, even when installation worked, there was still the screen telling me to enable root and install busybox before proceeding.

I'm really running out of ideas after so many hours and possibilities.

Is there anything I'm doing wrong or something else, I can try? Any help appreciated!...

that looks cool! I'm actually running teamexykings lightrom oreo, can I install the kernel ? And then the app gives you access to this kali environment ? and the native wifi chipset support injections and everything ?
Thanks to dev! :)

    WARNING: When using custom kernels on the S7, never turn off developer options or OEM unlock. If you do, you will lose all your data and have to flash a full stock firmware restore to use your device again!


    This is Kali NetHunter 3.15.2 for the Galaxy S7.

    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.

    Find much more information here: https://github.com/offensive-security/kali-nethunter/wiki
    The answer to all your questions, generally the answer is YES, IT CAN DO THAT.

    Most ROMs should be supported, as our installer uses a dynamic patching method on your current boot image!

    The NetHunter installer 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/nhsystem, 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.

    NetHunter also includes its own Busybox that gives you full large file support and some extra applets.
    It will not overwrite your current one, and will happily install alongside it as busybox_nh.


    Current version: 3.15.2 (stable, 2016-11-04)

    Please be careful to download the right version based on this table:
    SM-G930F, SM-G930FD, SM-G930W8, SM-G930X: kernel-nethunter-herolte-*
    SM-G930K, SM-G930L, SM-G930S: kernel-nethunter-heroltekor-*
    S7 edge: You're in the wrong forum!
    All others be sad.

    For the apps, chroot, and everything other than just the kernel, you will also need to download:

    See installation instructions before proceeding!

    Downloads are available at: http://build.nethunter.com/nightly/


    IMPORTANT: Kali NetHunter requires write access to your data partition!
    This means that if your data partition is encrypted, you will need to use the [Format Data] button in TWRP to remove encryption.
    This will delete all your data, including internal storage.
    You should back everything up first before installing Kali NetHunter.
    Samsung Smart Switch Mobile can be useful for this, and allows you to back up your apps to a location on an external SDcard.
    Unfortunately it doesn't back up most app data.

    The Kali chroot and apps are installed on your data partition (in /data/local/nhsystem for chroot). To initialize the chroot and install Kali Linux, you need to start the Kali NetHunter app.

    The generic NetHunter installer will automatically install SuperSU. We try to keep it up to date, but it isn't always.
    If you already have SuperSU or another root method installed, please simply delete the supersu.zip from the root of the zip file before installing it.

    It's recommended that you restore or flash your ROM's original kernel before installing NetHunter.

    It's become apparent that there may be issues with the stock ROM and this kernel, and that it might run best on a Note 7 port.

    1. Install Team Win Recovery Project to your recovery partition.
    2. Recommended: If you have a custom kernel or SuperSU installed, restore your stock kernel. (called Boot in TWRP)
      This isn't entirely necessary, but you may need to flash the NetHunter kernel again if SuperSU replaces it.
    3. If your data partition doesn't mount in TWRP:
      Go to [Wipe] -> [Format Data] (not advanced wipe) -> type "yes".
      WARNING: This will wipe your internal storage, disable encryption, and factory reset your phone!
      Once your data partition is formatted, go to [Reboot] -> [Recovery].
    4. Download the kernel-nethunter zip specific to your device.
      Without exiting TWRP, transfer the NetHunter kernel installer zip to your device over MTP* and flash it using [Install] in TWRP.
    5. If you wiped your data partition in step 2:
      Go to [Reboot] -> [System].
      Set up your phone by following the Android setup wizard.
      Once it's set up, reboot back into recovery.
    6. For new installations: Download the nethunter-generic-arm64-kalifs zip.
      For upgrades: Download the update-nethunter-generic-arm64 zip.
      Without exiting TWRP, transfer the NetHunter generic arm64 installer zip to your device over MTP* and flash it using [Install] in TWRP.
    7. Go to [Reboot] -> [System].
    8. Wait 2-5 minutes for your device to finish setting itself up.
    9. Open the NetHunter app to initialize the environment
    10. You're done!
    * MTP, known as Media Transfer Protocol, is the same way you transfer files from your PC to your device when booted into system.


    Follow the installation steps above. NetHunter can be installed over itself as many times as you'd like.
    If you don't want to lose your chroot, flash the smaller update-nethunter-generic-arm64 zip instead.


    The NetHunter kernel for the Galaxy S7 is based on Samsung's OSRC N930SKSU2BPID Note 7 kernel sources.
    It has the following changes:
    • Carefully updated to Linux 3.18.44 (with dirtycow vulnerability patched)
    • SELinux permissive
    • F2FS updated to Jaeguek Kim's latest kernel.org f2fs-stable sources
    • F2FS formatted data partition support
    • Enabled USB (OTG) Atheros, Ralink, and Realtek WiFi drivers
    • FIOPS IO scheduler as default IO scheduler, SIO available
    • USB HID Gadget keyboard & mouse support
    • mac80211 packet injection support
    • DriveDroid compatibility
    • Additional drivers built in for the full Kali NetHunter experience
    • Data partition encryption disabled (not supported by custom kernels at the moment)
    • Kernel module support, insert your own modules!
    • CIFS, NFS available through included kernel modules


    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
    • 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
    If your issue is with a specific app, it might be better to contact the developer of that app.

    For Kali NetHunter bugs/issues, you can open a ticket at: https://github.com/offensive-security/kali-nethunter/issues

    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.


    • USB Keyboard - The keyboard is unusable when using Google Keyboard as your input method. Switch to Hacker's Keyboard.
    • Reboot after 60 seconds - Sometimes when you boot your device it could reboot after 60 seconds because of a Samsung secure service not responding. Unresolved, but rare, and only happens within 60 seconds of a boot.

    Does it requires an external WiFi adapter to test my internet security or does the WiFi adapter of the S7 can do the job ?
    Thank you :)
    You will need one of these supported wifi cards (https://github.com/offensive-security/kali-nethunter/wiki/Wireless-Cards) in order to test your internet security.
    I cannot test this today, but i ****in love you !

    Yeah I just hope it's all working fine this time :p Last time I opened a thread for NetHunter on S7 it was a little embarrassing as I didn't own any recent Galaxy phones I had no idea they'd be such a challenge to get custom development going on.
    I still haven't exactly tested this, but I do have the Note 7 now so I'm really hoping that everything done to make it work on the Note 7 makes it work on the S7 and S7 edge too... *crosses fingers*

    We've got a few issues to fix before an actual release but they're all related to the apps.
    1. The NetHunter Terminal app is quite buggy, so you might want to use JuiceSSH local terminal for now. (type su -c bootkali_login to enter Kali environment)
    2. The NetHunter app's scripts are all hardcoded for armhf right now. I've actually completed arm64 support in the installer and we can build working arm64 rootfs and install it, just the NetHunter app can't see it yet so we're using armhf on arm64 instead for now.

    Anyways, hope to hear some good news from ya! These remaining issues shouldn't take long for us to overcome... :)
    yeah dude just gimme a moment flashing stock rom, btw i just did all the setup in bobcat rom it is soooooo lagggy
    and i would like to have this on stock rom. And one more thing thanks for your continuous support.
    AND MY FIRMWARE IS G935FXXU1APB6 is it ok?

    i have no idea...only tested on FXXU1BP firmware... maybe consider updating?
    i will see about maybe removing ffu and signature checker binaries to reduce size, i dont think they are even able to run except by OTAs/stock anyway which are broken by custom kernels
    yes note 7 ports work fine. That's why I was asking if anyone had a step by step tutorial or simply instructions to follow. I'm using hydra Rom 1.4.5 and have nethunter working but not external wifi adapter yet. have to buy one... if anyone who knows what they are doing it would be great if someone could publish a video on how yo prepare for install and run ;) but it's going without any lag on Hydra Rom...

    Flash stock in Odin if you can, probably better this way.

    Install TWRP using Odin
    Wipe Data
    Boot android and go through initial setup
    Install kernel
    Install Nethunter
    Boot android
    Install kernel again just in case
    Open the Nethunter app.


    I've tried this on Stock, SuperStock, and SuperMan.
    SM-G930 that is. You seem to be on the Edge version.
