Kali on Trimslice – User Instructions

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

  1. Get a nice fast 8 GB micro SD card or eMMC.

  3. Use the dd utility to image this file to your microSD card. 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.

Once the dd operation is complete, boot up the Trimslice with the microSD plugged in. Log in to Kali (root / toor), that’s it, you’re done!
