need help with persistence - PrimeDew - 02-06-2022

need help with setting up persistence for kali linux....i have been trying for few days.... can someone share their json file or tell me how to set it up after copying and setting up the ext4 persistence file...thanx in advance

It is explained on the website and it even has example json text.
https://ventoy.net/en/plugin_persistence.html
Just download and extract one of the pre-made files e.g. persistence_ext4_512MB_persistence.dat.7z

If you still have problems tell us exactly how you made the persistence file, where you put it and what is in your json file and what happens when you select the iso.

"persistence":[
        {
            "image": "/iso/kali-linux-2021.4a-live-amd64.iso",
            "backend":[
                "/persistence/persistence_ext4_4GB_persistence.dat"
            ],
            "timeout": 10,
            "autosel": 1
        }
    ]

but nothing shows up when I boot from kali persistence

 Don't edit ventoy.json manually. Delete it and use VentoyPlugson to generate it.  It will check the json syntax、file existence and filename lower/upper case automatically.

Use  F5 to check persistence configuration in Ventoy menu.
