    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;

    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 ?

    Okay… disregard all that i said. It looks like you are still using the old kernel modules.. as you have no config.txt

    Does your touchscreen actually work? if so, then you can ignore the message below

    ‘FATAL: Module ads7846_device not found.’

    cd ~/arm-stuff
    git clone https://github.com/notro/fbtft_tools.git
    cd fbtft_tools/ads7846_device
    make
    make install

    I did this step again and that seems to have solved the issue. It is included in the script but maybe it failed in the script somehow. Now the touchscreen seems to work and all is well. Thanks for this awesome guide and for your help aswell Mark Williams.
