Summary0006770: Raspberry pi 4B rev 1.4 8Gb - using kali-linux-2020.3a-rpi3-nexmon-64.img.xz results in non-functional bluetooth
DescriptionDownloaded and installed 64-bit ARM of kali on RPi 4B 8Gb version on new SDcard. RPi was previously running raspbianOS, and bluetooth functioned as expected (was really just looking for keyboard and mouse support at this point which prompted the investigation).


Steps To Reproduce1. Fresh install of kali-linux-2020.3a-rpi3-nexmon-64.img.xz image on Raspberry Pi 4 model B rev 1.4, 8Gb version
No bluetooth available upon start.

Ah crud, it looks like btuart wasn't marked excutable - the workaround for this is to run "sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/btuart" and then restart the hciuart/bluetooth services.
