An Exton remaster of Kali Linux with Refracta Snapshot so you can create your own Kali system – Build 201125

I’ve made a remix of Kali Linux 2020.4 Live.

ABOUT the Kali Linux Distribution
Kali Linux is an open source project that is maintained and funded by Offensive Security, a provider of world-class information security training and penetration testing services. In addition to Kali Linux, Offensive Security also maintains the Exploit Database and the free online course, Metasploit Unleashed. NOTE: Kali Linux is based on Debian.

MY SMALL CHANGES of the original Kali Live ISO 2020.4
1. I have replaced the original kernel with kernel 5.9.10-exton. Kernel 5.9.10 is the latest stable kernel available from
2. I have installed VirtualBox Guest Additions so that you can run Kali live in full screen in VirtualBox. Watch this screenshot.
3. I have installed Nvidia’s Proprietary Graphics driver 455.45.01 so that you can use it while running Kali live (from a DVD or a USB stick). Watch this screenshot.
4. I have installed Refracta Installer. Use it to install Kali to hard drive while running Kali live. Watch this screenshot.
5. You can run Kali super fast live from RAM. Watch this screenshot.
6. I have installed Refracta Snapshot. Use it to create your very own live installable Kali system. I mean change everything to your liking and create a new ISO. Very simple. A ten year old child can do it. Watch this screenshot.

LOGIN and Passwords
You will be logged in automatically to the Xfce4 Desktop as the ordinary user kali. The password for kali is kali. The password for root is root. You can log in to Xfce4 as root (if you want to). While logged in as kali you can use Sudo to become root.

Running my Kali remaster in VirtualBox
Everything works very good. If you want to install the system to hard drive you can do so using Refracta Installer. In the end of the installation process you’ll have to chroot and install Grub. Do it like this:
sudo su
mkdir /mnt/sda1
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 < i.e. mount the install partition
mount -t proc proc /mnt/sda1/proc
mount -o bind /sys /mnt/sda1/sys
mount –bind /dev /mnt/sda1/dev
chroot /mnt/sda1 /bin/bash < i.e. “chroot” into the install partition
apt update
apt install grub-pc
grub-install /dev/sda

  1. Great job! But unfortunatly I can’t download kali-64bit-exton-remaster-3340mb-201125-final.iso from – extremely sluggish connection, no close mirror – only San Diego, CA… Is it possible to get the file from some other server?

  2. Nops, only this in San Diego, CA… No European mirror I gues.. In my country Bulgaria – it is Netix, but obviously it is not mirrorwing your files…
