Kali on ASUS Chromebook Flip – User Instructions

If all you want to do is install Kali on your ASUS Chromebook Flip, follow these instructions:

  1. Get a nice fast 8 GB micro SD card or USB key.
  2. Put your Chromebook in developer mode, and enable USB boot. You can ignore legacy boot on that page since these devices do not have SeaBIOS.
  3. Download the Kali ASUS Chromebook Flip image from our downloads area.
  4. Use the dd utility to image this file to your microSD card or USB key. In our example, we use a microSD which is located at /dev/sdb. Change this as needed.

Alert! This process will wipe out your SD card/USB key. If you choose the wrong storage device, you may wipe out your computers hard disk.

xzcat kali-$version-veyron.img.xz | dd of=/dev/sdb bs=512k

This process can take awhile depending on your device speed and image size.

Once the dd operation is complete, boot up the ASUS Chromebook Flip with the microSD/USB key plugged in. Log in to Kali (root / toor), that’s it, you’re done!
