What is Nethunter?
The NetHunter project is a free and open-source mobile penetration testing platform for Android devices, based on Kali Linux, created as a joint effort between the Kali community member “BinkyBear” and Offensive Security. NetHunter supports Wireless 802.11 frame injection, one-click MANA Evil Access Point setups, HID keyboard, as well as BadUSB MITM attacks – and is built upon the sturdy shoulders of the Kali Linux distribution and toolsets.
The developers behind the ROM made it so it would work on Google’s older Nexus smartphones, along with older OnePlus phones and some older Samsung Galaxy phones.
However, some e users have found a way to install Kali NetHunter on most Android devices, one of this is our very own Redmi Note 4x. Keep in mind this method is unofficial so you will be installing this program on your phone at your own risk. I will not be held liable for any damage, loss of data and such by following my tutorial.
