Kali on Cubox-i4 Pro – User Instructions

If all you want to do is install Kali on your CuBox-i4Pro, follow these instructions:

  1. Get a nice fast 8 GB micro SD card.
  2. Download the Kali Cubox-i image from our downloads area.
  3. Use the dd utility to image this file to your SD device. In our example, we use a MicroSD which is located at /dev/sdb. Change this as needed.
This process will wipe out your SD card. If you choose the wrong storage device, you may wipe out your computers hard disk.
xzcat kali-$version-cubox-i.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 CuBox-i4Pro with the MicroSD plugged in. Log in to Kali (root / toor), that’s it, you’re done!
