Kali NetHunter for Android No RootFebruary 24, 2020
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.
(Stock unmodified device, no root or custom recovery required)
- Install the NetHunter-Store app from https://store.nethunter.com
- From the NetHunter Store, install Termux, NetHunter-KeX client, and Hacker’s keyboard
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:
pkg install wget
wget -O install-nethunter-termux
chmod +x install-nethunter-termux
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 stop -stop Kali NetHunter Desktop Experience root sessions

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/
