My Raspberry Pi 3 model B recently stopped working and I am planning on getting a Raspberry Pi 4. I was wondering if I could use the sd card with Kali Linux from the Raspberry Pi 3 in my Raspberry Pi 4.

  • It depends on the Kali version. Might be done, check this link out.

You can't. The RPi4B needs the latest bootcode, kernel and firmware (built after June 2019) or it won't boot.

You'll need https://cdimage.kali.org/kali-2019.4/kali-linux-2019.4-light-armhf.img.xz (and will probably need to check with the Kali developers to confirm that works on a RPi4B).
