Writing Kali ARM to SD Card for Raspberry Pi using Mac

I was trying to install Kali ARM on my Rasberry pi from Windows using Win32DiskImager but for some reason it wasn’t writing to SD card properly.

I don’t want to spend more time on figuring out why the tool is not writing, instead I just quickly tried on a Mac and there you go, it just worked straightaway!

Couple of simple commands did the job.

df -h – This will list all the mounted disks

sudo diskutil unmout /dev/diskXs1 – Unmount your desk * NOTE the X is the partintion number of your SDCard Disk Number. BE CAREFUL WITH THE NUMBER!

sudo dd if=kali-linux-1.0-armel-raspberrypi.img of=/dev/diskX

Thats’ it, go and have a coffee, coz this will take a while to complete.
