In this tutorial, we will learn how to install Kali Linux on our Raspberry Pi. I will be using Raspberry Pi 3 B+.

Formatting your SD Card

The first step is to format your SDCard using SD Memory Card Formatter.  Plug in your SDCard to a card reader.

Select your SD Card and Click “Format”. It is advisable to use “Overwrite Format” but it might take some time to format.

Visit the Kali Linux Custom ARM Image Downloads page and scroll down until you find the Raspberry Foundation.

Click the Kali Linux RaspberryPi 2 and 3 to start downloading.

After downloading the ARM image of Kali Linux, we need to flash it to our SD Card by using Etcher Balena

Download and install the software and flash your Kali Linux Image to your SD Card.

Select your Image then make sure you have selected your drive correctly. Click Flash.
