Post Installation Process

Without having GuestBox Addition

After booting up MOBEXLER for the first time on VirtualBox, it is recommended to install VirtualBox Guest Additions. VirtualBox Guest Additions are a set of drivers and utilities that enhance the performance and usability of the guest operating system running in a virtual machine. Before that, we will have to perform system updates. 

Update Your System

Updating System ensures you that your operating system is up-to-date with the latest security patches, bug fixes, and software improvements. Here's how you can do it.

1. Open a Terminal: 

Click on the terminal icon or press "Ctrl+Alt+T" to open a terminal window. 

2. Update Package Lists: 

Type the following command and press Enter, to update the package lists from the software repositories.

sudo apt update

3. Upgrade Installed Packages: 

a. After the update process is complete, type the following command and press Enter, to upgrade the installed packages to their latest versions. 

sudo apt upgrade

b. Type "Y" and press Enter, to proceed.

You may be prompted to confirm the upgrade process. 

Performing these system updates ensures that your Parrot Security OS is equipped with the latest improvements, fixes, and security updates, providing you with a more stable and secure environment for your cybersecurity and ethical hacking tasks.

Complete Guest Additions Installation 

Follow the below steps to install Virtual Box Guest Addition:

1. Click on the "Devices" menu in the VirtualBox window and choose "Insert Guest Additions CD image."

Click "Device" from the menu section
Tap on "Insert Guest Addition CD image"

2. After successfully importing the Guest Addition CD image, you'll notice the VirtualBox Guest Additions CD image is mounted. 

3. Click on the mounted directory to check the listed execution files. 

4. Since MOBEXLER is based on Linux, we'll need to install the Linux additions for better performance.

a. Open a new terminal from here, and type 'sudo ./' command. 

sudo ./

If you encounter an 'Unable to execute error,' don't worry! Just copy the file to the home directory and again run 'sudo ./' again.

After successfully integrating VirtualBox Guest Additions, it's essential to reboot the system for everything to work smoothly.

With VirtualBox Guest Additions installed, you'll experience improved functionality, display resolution, mouse integration, and overall performance in your MOBEXLER virtual machine.

That's it! You've successfully set up MOBEXLER on VirtualBox, empowering you to dive into mobile app security and ethical hacking. If you have any questions or need further assistance, feel free to leave a comment below. Happy hacking!"
