Kali NetHunter is a free and open-source mobile penetration testing platform for Android devices, based on Kali Linux. Kali NetHunter is available for un-rooted devices (NetHunter Rootless), for rooted devices that have a custom recovery (NetHunter Lite), and for rooted devices with custom recovery for which a NetHunter specific kernel is available (NetHunter). Official images are published by Offensive Security on their download page and are updated every quarter. NetHunter images with custom kernels are published for the most popular supported devices, such as Google Nexus, Samsung Galaxy and OnePlus. Many more models are supported, and images not published by Offensive Security can be generated using NetHunter build scripts. Kali NetHunter is maintained by a community of volunteers, and is funded by Offensive Security. (Wikipedia)

- All of the penetration testing tools should work but some might have restrictions, e.g. metasploit works but doesn’t have database support. If you discover any tools that don’t work, please post it in our forums.
- Some utilities like “top” won’t run on unrooted phones.
- Non-root users still have root access in the chroot. That’s a proot thing. Just be aware of that.
- Galaxy phone’s may prevent non-root users from using sudo. Just use “su -c” instead.
- Perform regular backups of your rootfs by stopping all nethunter sessions and typing the following in a termux session:
tar -cJf kali-arm64.tar.xz kali-arm64 && mv kali-arm64.tar.xz storage/downloadsThat will put the backup in your Android download folder. Note: on older devices, change “arm64” to “armhf”
