Regarding;

"[info] Loading kernel module ads7846_device."
FATAL: Module ads7846_device not found.

Notro has been a change in the way the drivers get loaded, it is done more efficiently now, it is now done using overlays.

I just updated this page 10 minutes ago with new instructions;

https://ozzmaker.com/piscreen-driver-install-instructions-2/

Maybe I missunderstood what you meant, but if I add "dtoverlay=piscreen,speed=16000000,rotate=90" to the end of the line in cmdline.txt instead of what you had written previously and reboot, it won't work anymore.

Although you say in the post that it should be added to config.txt which does not exist in the kali build instead of cmdline.txt. I tried creating a file named config.txt in boot containing that line and rebooted but that didn't work either.

Edit: I see that I indeed missunderstod what you meant by mixing up https://ozzmaker.com/piscreen-driver-install-instructions-2/ with https://ozzmaker.com/enable-console-on-piscreen/

But am I supposed to remove the lines in /etc/modules that were added in step 5 of the previous post and only add "dtoverlay=piscreen,speed=16000000,rotate=90" to config.txt in /boot ?

Blip, blop, bloop...
