The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is a 10.1-inch tablet computer designed, developed, and marketed by Samsung. The tablet incorporates a 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos processor and 2 GB of RAM. The touch screen works surprisingly well with Kali as well as the wireless card, however Bluetooth and audio are not yet functional on this image.
Stock Kali on Galaxy Note 10.1 - Easy Version
If all you want to do is to install Kali on your Galaxy Note 10.1, follow these instructions:
- You’ll need at least 7 GB free on your internal SD card for our image.
- Root your Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 if you have not already done so.
- Download the Kali Linux Galaxy Note 10.1 image from our downloads area.
- Rename the downloaded Kali image to linux.img and copy it to
- Download our
recovery.imgfile from here and copy it to
- Get root on your Galaxy Note 10.1, change /storage/sdcard0, and backup your recovery partition:
$ dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6 of=recovery.img_orig
- dd the downloaded recovery.img image to the recovery partition:
Alert! This process will overwrite your recovery partition. Please make sure you know what you are doing. You may brick your device if you fumble this.
$ dd if=recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6
- Reboot your Galaxy Note 10.1 into recovery mode. You can do this by turning it off, then press and hold both the power button and the volume up button. Once you see the “Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1” text appear, release the power button but keep pressing the volume up button. This should boot you into Kali and auto-login into Gnome. The root password is “changeme” (without the quotes!)
- Open the onscreen keyboard by going to : Applications -> Universal Access -> Florence Virtual Keyboard.
- Wireless works but seems to skip the scanning of networks without some massaging. If the Gnome Network Manager shows no wireless networks, simply add your wireless network as a “hidden” one and you should get connected as usual.
- You can modify, debug, and explore our image easily from within your Galaxy Note, using a wonderful Android App called Linux Deploy.
