Kali on Cubieboard2 – User Instructions
If all you want to do is install Kali on your Cubieboard2, follow these instructions:
- Get a nice fast 8 GB micro SD card or eMMC.
- Download the Kali Cubieboard2 image from the downloads area.
- Use the dd utility to image this file to your microSD card. In our example, we use a microSD, which is located at /dev/sdb. Change this as needed.
xzcat kali-$version-cubieboard2.img.xz | dd of=/dev/sdb bs=512k
This process can take awhile depending on your device speed and image size.
Once the dd operation is complete, boot up the Cubieboard2 with the microSD plugged in. Log in to Kali (root / toor), that’s it, you’re done!
