Installing Kali Nethunter On Any Android Devices

This tutorial will help you with installing Kali NetHunter on any android device. Before proceeding further, let me warn you that I am not responsible for what you do with your devices. Do everything at your own risk. It is recommended to try Kali NetHunter in any of the officially supported devices by Offensive Security. However, it is not compulsory because NetHunter has been ported to support a number of other devices. This guide for installing NetHunter in android devices is made assuming you have some basic understanding about rooting, custom recovery, unlocking the bootloader, soft brick, hard brick, flashing, custom ROMs etc. Please read the instructions very carefully. Read the previous post to know more about Kali NetHunter. Following are the prerequisites in general.


1) Rooted Device
2) TWRP custom Recovery Installed.
3) Device with Unlocked Bootloader (it will be locked by default)
4) Complete backup of the device to be on the safer side(taken with custom recovery)

Installing Kali NetHunter on Nexus or OnePlus devices

These devices are the best compatible with Kali NetHunter. Follow the below steps.
Downloading NetHunter: It can be downloaded from the Offensive Security NetHunter project page located at the following URL:

Unlock the bootloader of the android device.

 To root android phones and flash custom ROMs, unlocking its bootloader is necessary for most of the devices. Some devices come with unlockable bootloader while others are not. However, most of the devices are unlockable either by official methods or via some unofficial ways. Unlocking bootloader results in data loss, so make sure you backup anything that is important. You can follow this tutorial for unlocking the bootloader of your device. How to unlock bootloader

Install TWRP recovery:

TWRP stands for 'Team Win Recovery Project' is an open-source custom recovery for Android. It allows you to install third-party firmware and backup the current system, which is often unsupported by stock recovery images. Follow this guide to install TWRP on your device.

Flashing NetHunter Zip:

  1. I need to install kali nethunter on my samsung galaxy J7 lolipop.. plz help me..

    1. Hi, Nethunter is not yet available for Samsung Galaxy J7. You can either use an app called 'Linux Deploy' to run Kali Linux in J7(or any other phone) or goto XDA forums and ask someone to port it to your device.
