I've built an image using the Kali Arm build-scripts for Pinebook-pro, and burned the resulting .img.xz file to an SD card using Etcher, but it doesn't seem to actually boot on my PBP. Has anyone successfully got this build process to fruition, and if so, is there a how-to post build? Unclear what I'm missing on the resulting .img.xz to running on PBP steps…

I am waiting for someone to post an image that can be flashed to an SD. My attempts at making a build environment on the PBP has failed so far on the mrfixit image.

Might have some time later today to try again Smile

For now it wants (shouldn't need) cross architecture when I run pinebook-pro.sh. Have the same on PBP as in a ubuntu virtual machine on another laptop

Its looking like the script will need to be edited for compilation in arm64.  I broke my system trying katoon for installing Kali. 

 The script does use the Manjaro kernel and uboot files, I'm going to try to build a patched kernel and use a nethunter chroot for tools.  

I have so far trimmed the code not related to the kernel build in the pinebook-pro build script.

Running my first build test now.

Well, I can build no problem. My issue is that the resulting image doesn't seen to boot at all on my Pinebook Pro. I just get a black/blank screen when I attempt to boot an SD card from the resulting image file. For completeness though, below is my build process…

My build process for Kali-arm:

1. Install Oracle Virtualbox on my home iMac; https://www.virtualbox.org

2. Download Kali VM for Virtualbox (from: https://www.offensive-security.com/kali-...-download/)
   2a. Configure VM in Virtualbox; I gave it 4 cores and 16GB of RAM.

3. Boot KaliVM and log in as root/toor.
  3a. Do an initial update of the entire system; apt-get -y update && apt-get -y disc-upgrade && apt-get -y auto remove && apt-get -y auto clean
  3b. Restart VM; reboot

4. Clone and follow README.md from Kali-arm git repo; https://gitlab.com/kalilinux/build-scripts/kali-arm
Code:
mkdir ~/arm-stuff
cd ~/arm-stuff
git clone https://gitlab.com/kalilinux/build-scripts/kali-arm
cd ~/arm-stuff/kali-arm
./build-deps.sh
./pinebook-pro.sh 2020.1
   4a. build takes approx 1hr in the VM w/ the resources I gave it. Resulting image file is named kali-linux-2020.1-pinebook-pro.img.xz
   4b. Transfer image file, kali-linux-2020.1-pinebook-pro.img.xz, to my host system via scp; scp ./kali-linux-2020.1-pinebook-pro.img.xz shmoo@10.0.0.1:.

5. Burn kali-linux-2020.1-pinebook-pro.img.xz to a 128GB SD card using Balena Etcher on my host iMac; https://www.balena.io/etcher/

6. When complete, attempt to boot Pinebook-Pro from SD card… Results in a BLACK/BLANK SCREEN.

Is anyone else getting different behavior or a working, bootable image? I feel like I'm insane here. /crazy pills.
