[ROM] [Official] Kali NetHunter for the OnePlus 7 & OnePlus 7 Pro

Search This thread
Thanks! I actually installed cyberknight777's kernel with RROS and it works SOOOO well. Highly recommend it to anybody trying to get nethunter working on OPO 7 Pro.
Cheers! I did my best with the A10 kernel. Learnt alot by working with it. atm I'm working on a new A11 kernel which isn't related to nethunter in any way. Will release it soon n maybe even make a nethunterized build out of it

any arguments? , comparison ? advantages and disadvantages?

do you rely on your own experiences? did you "heard somewhere on the internet"?
For starters his kernel is very outdated. The kernel he is using is of the version 4.14.117. My kernel is of 4.14.239. Next the kernel doesn't track the latest CAF tags whilst mine does(or atleast did when I maintained it for as long as I could). My kernel has more optimization focused on battery backup and performance. My kernel doesn't have issues with the brain service as I've nuked it. My testers have said that the kernel performs well under heavy usage too. If you want a kernel that tracked latest ACK(android common kernel) and CAF changes with good optimisation, use mine. If not feel free to use draco's kernel.

I present to you: Kali NetHunter for the OnePlus 7 & OnePlus 7 Pro

Kali NetHunter is an Android ROM overlay that turns an ordinary phone into the ultimate Mobile Penetration Testing Platform.
The overlay includes a custom kernel, a Kali Linux chroot, an accompanying Android application, which allows for easier interaction with various security tools and attacks, as well as a client to the Kali NetHunter App Store.
Beyond the penetration testing tools arsenal within Kali Linux and the Kali NetHunter App Store, NetHunter also supports several additional classes, such as HID Keyboard Attacks, BadUSB attacks, Evil AP MANA attacks, and much more. For more information about the moving parts that make up NetHunter, check out our NetHunter Components page.
NetHunter is an open-source project developed by Offensive Security and the community.

Hey there, I'd have a question that keeps bugging me. Seemingly I can't figure out on how to apply a OTA System Update without breaking the phone (it's either stuck or does not even boot). I always need to unbrick it and flash back a backup or the old files. I searched for quite some time for possible solutions, but I have not been able to find one. So I wanted to ask if you could point me in the right direction. BR chaos

Hi all does anyone have the kernel: Linux kali 4.14.117-Draco-Re4son #1 SMP Wed Sep 8 13:14:39 AEST 2021 aarch64 installed on a OnePlus 7 Pro can anyone advise me if it is good and what are the drawbacks ?


Oct 28, 2020
I have OnePlus 7 Pro installed Universal DM-Verity, ForceEncrypt file in TWRP. I then installed OxygenOS from scratch. If I want to install Kali Nethunter I have to install this DM-Verity, ForceEncrypt file once again, won't I have problem with ssh connection ? and Magisk error ? I had a problem that when I went into format and typed yes and dragged the erase slider it somehow did not read my sim card and bluetooth did not work and wifi

Can anyone test the kernel for OnePlus 7 / Pro on Android 10 ?

Hello everyone, maybe trivial question but for me fundamental. Once installed everything, ect .. If in case I decide to upgrade kali nethunter, in the terminal, I will lose compatibility with official ROM, and compromise nethunter? If this is not the case which upgrade have to do:
apt upgrade, apt dist-upgrade, apt full-upgrade?
Finally, while finishing the upgrade when the blue screen appears where you have to select options, what to do, what option have to select? if someone is able to answer.
