Vest guess, tar was not created, preserving permissions,

tar cvpzf .....

Or, during extraction
tar xpvzf ....

I rebooted the phone, launched Kali N900 again, was not asked to configure anything, and now I have an UI and can enter my username and password!

I doubt what I did is safe though, but it might help pinpointing the issue. Any advice would be welcome. Turns out I might have broken sudo by doing that, among other things.

(And I have the same Netdev issue as you.)
I have modified the fist post, please download the compressed image file and write it to your sdcard. This will erase all your existing partitions on the sdcard. If everythng works fine you can create more partitions and install debian or other OSs.

tar file is working fine, I am not able to recreate the issue you are facing. I replaced tar with disk image file, now file permissions will be intact and it will be much safer than tar.

Thanks!
I realized I had all kinds of problems in Kali from using the tar file (wrong icons, network manager was acting funny, shutdown from user menu was not working etc.). After starting over with the disk image things seem finally to be working sanely.

Thanks. Kali now installs fine and I can log in. Unfortunately, after 2 to 3 seconds, it automatically turns off (the shutdown procedure lines are displayed, it's not just a hard reboot). It shuts down by itself, it's not related to any action.

Was the following command correct?

sudo dd if=~/Desktop/kali-rolling.img of=/dev/sdb bs=1M

/dev/sdb is my µSD after I formatted it in a single Ext4 partition (/dev/sdb1).

I can report the exact same thing. Now with the image the installation works OK but a few seconds after logging in it shuts down.

I'll see if I can have a look off-line. Is this using systemd or sysvinit as pid 1?

After trying this and that (suspected systemd, then UPower, then lack of RAM), I logged in as root (something I haven't done in many many years!) and it didn't shutdown.

I've now setup WICD to connect to my AP, which it will hopefully do early enough so I can ssh in before logging in as user and see why this happens.

Other than that, pretty cool!

Add.:
OK, I've created a swap partition to make sure if wasn't lack of RAM. I've also enlarged the partition because it is full already from the beginning. But still logging in as user causes a shutdown. Now even logging in as root I get a shutdown.

@rapol.goutham: why Kali? they obviously mess up an otherwise functioning Debian. Could you do all this with Debian instead?

Logging in as root always resulted in shut down for me too. I had not mentioned that in my previous post, sorry.

Your first session as root with no shut down suggests that the pattern is not so easy to reproduce or so automatic, but I honestly don't know what could trigger the shut down (at least, I can confirm it's not a action from the user, since I did not get the time to do anything after logging in).

I haven't experienced this. Don't know if it makes a difference, but I expanded the ext4 partition and created the swap partition(s) before my first boot to Kali.

I didn't yet figure out what the problem is, but I've since then uninstalled lightdm so I boot to the virtual terminal. Using startx, as root or as user, seems to work fine.

I now want to see if I can implant this on a N900 where the microSD card reader isn't working, i.e. installing this directly on the eMMC.
