Hello my cybersecurity and ethical hacker enthuiasts.

I have some news for you, okay old news but still exciting.

Offensive Security recently released Kali Nethunter for Unrooted/Nonrooted Android Device.

NetHunter Rootless Edition

Maximum flexibility with no commitment

Install Kali NetHunter on any stock, unrooted Android device without voiding the warranty.

Prerequisite:

Android Device
(Stock unmodified device, no root or custom recovery required)

Installation:

  • Install the NetHunter-Store app from https://store.nethunter.com
  • From the NetHunter Store, install Termux, NetHunter-KeX client, and Hacker’s keyboard
    Note:
    The button “install” may not change to “installed” in the store client after installation – just ignore it.
    Starting termux for the first time may seem stuck while displaying “installing” on some devices – just hit enter.
  • Open Termux and type:
    termux-setup-storage
    pkg install wget
    wget -O install-nethunter-termux https://offs.ec/2MceZWr
    chmod +x install-nethunter-termux
    ./install-nethunter-termux

Usage:

Open Termux and type one of the following:

  • nethunter or nh - start Kali NetHunter command line interface
  • nethunter kex passwd - configure the KeX password (only needed before 1st use)
  • nethunter kex & - start Kali NetHunter Desktop Experience user sessions
  • nethunter kex stop - stop Kali NetHunter Desktop Experience
  • nethunter <command> - run in NetHunter environment
  • nethunter -r - start Kali NetHunter cli as root
  • nethunter -r kex passwd - configure the KeX password for root
  • nethunter -r kex & - start Kali NetHunter Desktop Experience as root
  • nethunter -r kex stop - stop Kali NetHunter Desktop Experience root sessions
  • nethunter -r kex kill - Kill all KeX sessions
  • nethunter -r <command> - run <command> in NetHunter environment as root

Note: The command nethunter can be abbreviated to nh.
Tip: If you run kex in the background (&) without having set a password, bring it back to the foreground first when prompted to enter the password, i.e. via fg <job id> – you can later send it to the background again via Ctrl + z and bg <job id>

To use KeX, start the KeX client, enter your password and click connect
Tip: For a better viewing experience, enter a custom resolution under “Advanced Settings” in the KeX Client/
