The Kali Linux finally working on our Nokia N900 devices.

I have not faced any major problem, except the audio is not working.

I have uploaded a working image of latest 'kali 1.1.0a armhf' along with installation guide.

Download link:
Kali 1.1.0a armhf for Nokia N900.

Kali running on Nokia N900 (Video):

I have built this using the official documentation from kali

I thank every person who put their effort on this device. Especially wicket, I have used his scripts for patching the kali's rootfs.

Hope you enjoy!

I will post screen shots in 10 minutes.
I have no idea what is wrong with the sound card, it just displays 'sound card not detected'.
For installation, just download, extract and write the .img file directly to a memory card (8GB). I have added a simple guide inside those archives, please read it.

I tried to add kali repositories to debian on n900, but when I run apt-get update I have got segmentation fault errors. The device is very sensitive to the changes, not stable at all. Then I felt it is better to get kali working on N900 than fixing debian to get kali repositories working.

I'll let you know about telephony soon. Currently I did not have any information whether the kernel supports telephony or not. N900 is not my primary phone, so I didn't think about getting telephony working on it.
You can check kernel status at http://elinux.org/N900 website.
