I will try my best :smiley:

It would be great if you get the TP-Link TL-WN722N working for the BPI and Kali because Kali-Linux without a Wifi that supports Monitore-Mode is almost useless. But I’m sure you get this working.

Amazing job - Keep it up!

Can you make a Kali Linux image with 4.6 mainline kernel ? The new 4.6 kernel supports A83T SoC and a lot of USB WiFi adapters.

Yes that would be great :smiley:

yes ,when we finished 3.4 BPI kernel image ,we will plan to do this . we have boot mainline nernel success ,but need time to fixed some issue.

are you sure that this file is ok?

I tried to install by instruction: http://www.bananapi.com/index.php/download?layout=edit&id=42

but does not start. I still have the red light :frowning:

Yes I have the same problem :frowning: Only a red LED and no boot or start… Hope you can fix this :wink:

Try to unzip Kali-Linux by 7z (http://www.7-zip.org/) .img - I have a problem with files inside .img. Ubuntu Image I can unzip without problems.

I also have Problems to extract the File… Can you re-upload it or give us a tutorial how to extract it right please ?

I know it sounds stupid but I dont get a working .img if I extract it with 7zip or WinRAR

Thank you

i have let our R&D to test it now ,and update late. sorry.

we have download and test this image again, and not any issue.

please try zip or unzip to do this work on linux.

if you use windows OS , need NFS or EXFAT, can not use FAT32, it is limit for 4G,this image have 7.45G

I downloaded again and I tried on ubuntu linux:

  1. Downloaded from: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_YnvHgh2rwjRXg1bVpUbFFjb1U/view?usp=sharing
  2. Unpacked
  3. Inserted SD
  4. And I used the command: sudo dd bs=1M if=<.img path> of=

to no avail - still red light

I can find somewhere official instructions to install on M3?

Here’s a trick:

dd if=something.img of=/dev/device bs=1M conv=fsync

the last part makes sure the card is ready to be ejected :slight_smile:

This also I tried, but nothing changes

someone was able to run? I give up :frowning:

I still have the red light :disappointed:

I tried everything…

Because I also didnt get it working I have made some Pictures of the Problem maybe it will help someone.


  1. I downloaded the Kali-Linux Image from the Google Drive

2. I extracted the .zip-File with WinRAR (I also tried it with 7zip and other Programs)

3. After finishing I get the following File (Picture 3)

4. I tried to convert the File to an .img File to write it with Win32DiskImager to my SD-Card.

finally only the red LED shines :frowning:

I also tried to write the “-” File directly to my SD-Card but it also didnt work.

Hope my english is understandable

greetings, root_Padi

I added .zip extension to “-” file. Unzip “-.zip” file - in the middle is .img file

but I still have red light.
