Kali NetHunter M For Lava Iris X8

Kali NetHunter  Released Finally for Mediatek Devices!

Kali NetHunter
for Lava Iris X8 (MT6592) is fresh out, with a whole bunch of
improvements, bug fixes….and yes, Android Lollipop support. This means
that NetHunter now supports the Mediatek devices too! This is
awesome news to all those who have bought these new Nexus devices and
have yearned to install the Kali NetHunter on them. What else is new
with NetHunter? We’re excited to tell you all about it:

Marshmallow Support for MT6592

NetHunter on Nexus 9

The
Developers added Lollipop/Marshmallow support for all MT6592 devices. The
Lava Iris X8 usually rum on MT6592 Chipset powered by Mediatek is powerful
enough and most devices are running on Marshmallow using custom roms,
providing a horrible user experience. I’ve tested our Marshmallow
releases well, and so far, haven’t found a good enough reason to move
to Android 6.0 on our own production devices. Don’t get me wrong,
Android 6.0 is nice and shiny…but not mature enough yet for our
purposes. Though we can run the Kali Linux Net Hunter reliably on MT6592
Devices. All in all, we’re excited about the new linux images as they
usher in an era of updated hardware to our Mobile Attack Platform. One
caveat worth mentioning devices.
