Thank you guys for suggestion for disabling power button when running in level 3. Now is there another option to put unit to sleep When closing the lid? (Are there levels can be enabled?) right now battery will be out in few hours

So.... after a long time I did an update of 2020.1, took almost 2 hours
A new kernel was installed, uname -r shows no change
? Is there an equivalent of debian's u-boot-update which changes extlinux.conf??
Of course, kali has boot.txt/boot.scr
? Or are you supposed to do it manually?
? What about initrd?? Originally there is none, update has generated one

Simply goto https://arm.kali.org/
and download one of the latest nightly images and you should be good to go.

The 2020.2 images from
https://www.offensive-security.com/kali-...rm-images/
did not work for me either.  Either download the latest nightly build from the link above or wait for the next official release from offensive-security.

Thank you for posting the location of the ARM install.

How can I install it on my PBP, though?

Thank you.

>How can I install it on my PBP, though?
That's not a very clear question,, write it to SD like any other image?
It would be rather rash to install to emmc without testing it for a week or 2
Especially (before your time) after the screw-up 2? months ago with kali
In short, bad image, partitions in wrong place, uboot overwritten
Worked OK as SD boot (using emmc uboot), but when installed to emmc,,
no uboot, thus no boot. I'm sure that it has been fixed, still wise to test
Personally, I always check if sleep works (well). this gives fastest computer

the install on emmc is pretty clean now ...i don't even see a second of red light when it boots up
