Here is a working port of Kali Linux Rolling Edition with Kernel 4.5 for our Nokia N900 device.
This port is much more stable than my previous port, I have not faced any kernel panic errors, segmentation faults etc.
Everything that worked in my previous port should work in this port.

I have attached working kali-rolling rootfs image to this post along with installation instructions.

Installation instructions:

Step 1: Get a 8GB or more sized memory card.
Step 2: Extract 'kali-rolling.7z' file, it will give you 'kali-rolling.img' file.
Step 3: Insert your memory card to a linux system.
Step 4: Write the extracted 'kali-rolling.img' file to your sdcard (sudo dd if=/path to the extracted .img file/kali-rolling.img of=/dev/sdx bs=1M (here replace x with your sdcard device letter)).
Step 5: Install pali's U-Boot in your phone (Maemo).
Step 6: Copy 'configure_u-boot.sh' file to your phone memory, and run it as root user ('$ sudo gainroot' then '# ./configure_u-boot.sh').
Step 7: Insert your sdcard into your phone.
Step 8: Switch off and slide up your phone then switch on. And choose Kali-Rolling OS from the list.
Step 9: Configure your Kali OS on your first boot.
Step 10: Login with username 'user' and password with the password that you have specified during configuration.
Step 11: After everything works fine, shutdown your device and resize your sdcard's existing partition using any partition managing tool and you can add a 'swap' partition to your sdcard if you want.

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!

Awesome! Kernel 4.5? Does this kernel support telephony?

good question.
telephony and audio were an issue if I remember when I was playing with the old version..
If it has no seg. faults... or panics.. or updating probs... etc..
I would hope it handles tele and audio...
crossing fingers to hear back from rapol the good news...

I have not yet tested telephony or audio, mostly the telephony will be supported by the kernel. Don't have enough time to test them

Kernel 4.5 should support most of our device hardware, we need to find a way to use them.

I am trying installing it and I think everything went good until I typed my password, but now I only have a black screen with a blinking underscore on the top left. I have waited a bit just in case the first boot would be longer, but it has been more than 10 min now. Am I doing something wrong?
