Any information about this image? Thx

Is there a posibility, that I don’t hve to make each time a new WLAN conneciont after restarting the BPI


how can I upgrade Kernel, Modules, uboot, etc. from “Ubuntu-16.04-mate-desktop-bpi-r2-sd-emmc-v1.2.0.img.zip 2017-09-04” to this image?

Looking forward for your reply,


Uboot,kernel and modules should be the same since official repo is not changed for some time.

You can use my uboot (same base version,but some patches for multiboot) and/or my kernels.

You can’t “upgrade” ubuntu to kali because it’s another Distribution

I have this image up and running from SD card. A couple notes to help others: UN/PW: root:bananapi

In order to update you need to run: wget -q -O - https://archive.kali.org/archive-key.asc | apt-key add

This will get rid of the key expiration error.

This uses the 4.4.70-BPI-R2-Kernel from November 28 2017.

Now, my question: This does not seem to include the ath9k kernel module. (Why build without this support?!) So, do I need to rebuild a new kernel or can I get the module from somewhere?

Thank you.
