I wrote a previous post about kali on the hi10, and promised a followup on Chuwi hi10 pro kali linux wifi fixes; here it is.

Kali chuwi hi10 pro wifi fix
if you have just installed kali on the chuwi hi10 pro you dont have wifi working. to fix this you’ll need to compile it.
– If you have kernel > 4.12.1 then this driver is already part of your kernel, as of writing I’m running 4.9.18, so have to compile.

Since we dont have a working wifi connection we’ll need to grab these files on another machine and put on your flash drive:
http://ftp.tku.edu.tw/kali/pool/main/l/linux/linux-headers-4.9.0-kali3-amd64_4.9.18-1kali1_amd64.deb
http://ftp.tku.edu.tw/kali/pool/main/l/linux/linux-compiler-gcc-6-x86_4.9.18-1kali1_amd64.deb
http://ftp.tku.edu.tw/kali/pool/main/l/linux/linux-headers-4.9.0-kali3-amd64_4.9.18-1kali1_amd64.deb
http://ftp.tku.edu.tw/kali/pool/main/l/linux/linux-headers-4.9.0-kali3-common_4.9.18-1kali1_all.deb
http://ftp.tku.edu.tw/kali/pool/main/l/linux/linux-kbuild-4.9_4.9.18-1kali1_amd64.deb

put the flash drive back in the hi10 and copy the files to your hi10

run the following to install the deb files:

dpkg -i *.deb

unzip the rtl file
cd to the folder thats created
edit the makefile
lines 206 and 207 should br edited to read firmware/rtl8723bs…. instead of rtl8723bs…
save the make file

make
make install
depmod -a
modprobe r8723bs

iwconfig will now list wlan0

You can set it up as normal!
