First, interesting news:

Kali is now officially supported on Gemini:
https://docs.kali.org/kali-on-arm/kali-linux-gem-pda

Any ideas/advices how to leave Android and Sailfish partitions working and just replace Debian?

What a nice surprise! I passed my OSCP exam last week too. Just got done flashing it, Planet's new initial setup menu is much better. I don't think replacing Debian with Kali is possible due to the way Linux is "merged" with Android on the Gemini, but it should still be theoretically possible. Maybe try replacing "linux_root.img" and "linux_boot.img"? I do think you need a new scatter file though.

Does it come with new Android version?

Hmm.. I am thinking how to backup existing Sailfish... and how to restore it if I flash whole Kali image...

or... just try to flash Linux over Debian... changing 2nd boot option (if it is possible)...

Yes, I see new Android version... Now Android and Kali boots, Sailfish does not boot...

I have first made a backup of sailfish_boot and userdata.img
Then tried flashing only linux_root and linux_boot over existing triple boot Gemini... Didn't work.
Then flashed Kali but replaced root_boot with sailfish_boot and replaced userdata from backup...

Sailfish cannot boot... Maybe it shared data with old debian partition? Any ideas?

Looks promising. What is working / not working on Kali?

Think it is great that another distro is supported on Gemini.

However, for typical users (like me, for example...), I wonder if it better than using Debian?

Please read the Kali page regarding "Should I use Kali?"

https://docs.kali.org/introduction/should-i...-use-kali-linux

Interested in your thoughts on this....

Thanks,

Mark

I agree, the more distros the better, at least for distros made for specific purposes like Kali.

Kali is more suited for those that require advanced networking capabilities on their Gemini and are not shy of running things as root.

This is a great addition to Android and Sailfish, as it does cover networking features and tools these do not provide.
As I understand, Kali is flashed same as Gemian, requiring a fresh Android install as part of the partition change. (coming from stock layout)

I will hang in there until Oreo is available for the Gemini and Sailfish X for Gemini and hope Kali will be available as a stowaway or alongside Sailfish in one way or the other by then.
