Monitor Mode Reloaded

Since most of you experienced some trouble during the kernel compilation...
We worked hard during the last months to bring an easy to use solution that won’t require kernel modifications.

The new solution is a normal android APK that you can try to install on your **ROOTED** device.
It should work on most devices with the supported chipset, but we won't know until you try it :)

Currently tested on the following devices:
  • GS 1 - Cyanogen 7
  • GS 2 - Cyanogen 9 & 10
  • Nexus One - Cyanogen 7
  • Nexus 7 - Cyanogen 9

We are currently working on GS3&4 support (which have a different broadcom chipset), we will release it “when it’s done”.

As usual:
please note that this code is experimental and you use it at your own risk and we are not responsible nor liable for any damage or loss of data. Sometimes unexpected things might go wrong and you might end up with a device that is no longer functional. Be warned and please take the responsibility yourself--it is your own risk and no one else can be held responsible.

You can download the apk from our google code page:
https://code.google.com/p/bcmon/
(Direct link: https://bcmon.googlecode.com/files/bcmon.apk)

    1. If it crashes when you click "Run airodump" or other commands, it can be due to a too old version of Terminal Emulator. Uninstall it using Titanium backup, and install latest version from play store.

    2. I'm sorry, could you specify wich one, by link if possible? I see several terminal emulators, some free others paid.

  6. I'm also facing the same issue using an Atrix 4G. After I install the apk, when trying to "install firmware and tools" the application closes. I'm using CM 7.2, kernel 2.6.32.60 (MROM) BCM4329. I could make the application work on CM 9 and 10 using a 3.1.10 kernel but it is not stable yet so I had to go back to CM 7.2. If it is of any help to make this work on this device I've uploaded the log from sdcard/bcmon to this site...

    1. What kernel are you running. I experienced the very same issue until I reverted back to Lean Kernel 7.1

      Delete
    2. I'm currently running MROM kernel 2.6.32.60. Using an alpha 3.1.10 kernel makes the application work so this must be a kernel incompatibility because I've noticed that most of the people using this on CM 7.2 are running a 2.6.35+ kernel.

    3. from your log file it's looks like a busybox problem, try to reinstall busybox...

  8. Nice work! the app works fine on my SGS II with rooted stock firmware.

    How easy do you think it will be to implement new MAC layer algorithms directly in the firmware? Would it be possible to easily rewrite the MAC implementation in C and compile it for the phones? It would be nice to have some framework like https://github.com/ict-flavia/Wireless-MAC-Processor also for smartphones, which would allow to build large test beds with cheap phones on a university campus.

  9. Hi Works really fine on Nexus 7 Cyanogene10.1 Kernel 3.1.10-gea48912.
    I'm in the same case as this of DerMathhias. I'm looking for making my own packet sniffer with radiotap or prism libs. I reverse your apk to see how you launch binary (LD_PRELOAD=fakedriver.so). But I don't know how to cross compile my code to enable with your library in goal to load my programm with your fakedriver (in opening bcmon_wrapper on a term).
    I've tried to open a term with bcmon_wrapper loaded on and launch my code but it seems to not detect my card in monitoring mode therefore, I can use radiotap libraies...

    Help will be appreciated... (it's for an intership...)

    By the way your work is really brillant, I compare the results given by airodump tablet version with these given by my computer and it's really close.

    Thanks a million

    1. You can take a look at our recon presentation, the short answer is that you need to:
      1. Load our patched firmware
      2. Run enable_bcmon
      3. Run your application with the LD_PRELOAD=fakedriver.so

      Delete
    2. Thanks for your reply. I just need to know where are the headers file you have used for radiotap and libpcap. Because I need to use your libraries but I need to have your headers files to compile my code with your custom libs.

      Thanks a million.
      Again great job.

      Delete
    3. It's working now, I just rewrite some radiotap headers. My question was a bit stupid, sorry about that.
      By the way, radiotap header seems to not work. Have you worked on it (I know it's really hard work), but I just wonder if ?
      BCM company might not worked on it at the end, so my guess is that the radiotap header I get are unusable ? Am I right ?

    2. that is an issue of knowing how to use the aircrack suite itself, rather than their application. I would advise you to look up some tutorials on the aircrack-ng website. the short answer is that you have to start airodump-ng with the saving function enabled, using -w [filename]

I think the apk does not install either the firmware and tools, is a galasy s samsung advance with 4.1.2, carries a BCM4329, I sent the logs to see if they can patch, I've also read that leaves no save catches, could be possible?? you save on the sd or internal memory of the phone, the phone is in root mode ... have if anyone can give me any ideas or suggestions to make it work.

    I tried it with terminial emulator without the ... and nothing is the same mistake other renicia the phone ... and stops the apk ... test the second option restuarar firmware and also original error jumps fw restoration - monitor mode failed and I get monitor mode enable - failed ...

  38. Need it for SGS 3
    Can you at least tell when there will be about a release?

    ReplyDelete
  39. I had a look at your slides. The Nexus 4 works differently because it uses wlan0. That means the monitor mode can be enabled by modifying the driver. Some talented people are working on an open source project to recreate the WCN3660 driver. Their project can be found at https://github.com/KrasnikovEugene/wcn36xx . Further modifications are necessary for monitor mode and packet injection. However if you examine the code you will notice that the enum for monitor mode is already present ;).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. On the nexus 7 I also use Wlan0 interface in monitor mode, I don't understand why your are telling "The Nexus 4 works differently because it uses wlan0" ? Interface name change nothing, indeed you can change it name with an ioctl call sys.

      Delete
    2. The WCN3660 uses a soft mac system, unlike the BCM4330 which uses a full mac.

      The project John pointed out is not enough. The WCN3660 firmware has to be modified to support monitor mode. Unfortunately qualcomm do not provide datasheets or documentations which explain how to update and modify the firmware.

    3. The lastest release of CM fixed the camera problem. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2342997

      CM is smoother then stock rom.

    1. What type of range are you getting to see network mac addresses?

      Delete
    2. How far away can you be from a client or access point and still see the device. Also do we know what the scale of the rssi is based?

      Delete
    3. As long as you are in target network's wifi range mac addresses are displayed in airmon-ng with their respective rssi. Max value is -100 as you would expect. Besside-ng automatically skips "crappy connections" and prefers stronger signals, so you better be very close when using it. I guess it all depends on the kind of hardware and interferences you get. My SGS2's broadcom wifi card can't certainly be compared to an alfa AWUS036H card in terms of signal strenght.

  75. Hi bcmon team , bcmon.apk arpreply have some problem on international galaxy s2..

    First, my.english not good...sorry..

    phone model: international galaxy s2
    testing system: cm9, cm9.1, cm10.1, cm10.2

    run bcmon terminal:
    airodump-ng and fakeauth working fine
    but after start arpreply, when success injected, airodump-ng screen stop working (such as power stop, RXQ go to 0 , beacons stop increase, data stop, fakeauth stop working )
    if stop arpreply, airodump-ng and fakeauth working back normal

    my question is does bcmon.apk full support packet injected on galaxy s2 ?
    this problem is bcmon.apk problem or my phone problem?
    if it is my phone problem, can you tell me where is the problem and help me solve it..

    thanks bcmon team

    1. I am experiencing the same problem.
      When I am starting airodump-ng I see all the stats updating (beacons, data packets count, PWR, and RQX got to 0).
      But when I actively start sending arp packets, the stats of the AP stop updating, and I only see the number of sent packets on the station that I am sending the packets with its mac increase.
      I also sniffed the packets on the interface to understand if this was a problem with airodump not being able to process all the packets that it is received of that there we actually no packets to receive.
      I used this command line:
      tcpdump -evvni wlan0 -XX -s 0 -f "not ether src "
      What I saw was as follows: There were a lot of packets received using this filter when airodump was working alone, but in the moment I started aireplay to send the arps, tcpdump stopped receiving any packets using this filter. A few seconds after stopping aireplay, tcpdump started showing new pakcets, and airodump started updating again.
      I also tried lowering down the number of packets send in a second in aireplay using -x parameter. It didn't help much as it seems, but I did notice a change. When there was no limit and it was sending 500 PPS (packets per second) it took tcpdump a few seconds to start seeing packets again after stopping aireplay, but when I lowered it to 70 PPS tcpdump started showing packets immediately.
      Also sometimes when I set the PPS to 60 it worked as it should for sometime and I sent and received packets, and after a few seconds it stopped, and sometimes it stopped receiving packets almost immediately after starting aireplay (and started showing packets again after stopping aireplay).
      But when setting the PPS to 10 I saw something really odd, when looking at the tcp dump it looked like it was stopping and starting receiving packets a few time in a second. If I compared the time it took 100 packets to be captured with aireplay sending packets in a rate of 10 PPS and without, there is an enormous difference!! 1.36 seconds without aireplay vs 18.42 seconds with areplay working (according to top, aireplay takes only 11% and top itself takes 2%, everything else takes 0%). This is more then 13 times greater time with than without aireplay.
      This is the command I used to measure the time:
      time tcpdump -i wlan0 -c 100 -f "not ether src "
      And this the output:
      Without aireplay:
      100 packets captured
      133 packets received by filter
      17 packets dropped by kernel
      0m1.25s real 0m0.00s user 0m0.11s system

      With aireplay:
      100 packets captured
      103 packets received by filter
      0 packets dropped by kernel
      0m14.86s real 0m0.04s user 0m0.07s system

      To me this seems like some kind of buffer that is being filled above its limits, and thus losing packets. I don't know if this is a kernel issue or an issue in the firmware.

      I am using a rooted Samsung Galaxy S II (I9100T) with stock kernel and ROM (4.1.2).
      If you'll need more information or help debugging please feel free to contact me.

  78. Monitor mode seems to be working just fine on HTC HD2.

    However, there are some problems :

    -cannot figure out how to save logs
    -does radiotap work yet and is reaver-wps also working OK now
    -trying to use the inbuilt airodump, wash, besside-ng, bcmon command line fails and app crashes

    Any idea how to solve these issues will be appreciated. Great work so far guys, well done !

  108. Hi I'm a bit new to monitor mode applications and am developing a class project to find out the number of user attached to an access point. I installed the app and it looks very good. But I'm totally lost in source code. I expected java classes (for an android app) but the source code is in C. My question is

    1. Am I missing something here ? Is the source code actually in C ?
    2. If it is in C is this the only way to develop an app which works in monitor mode ? To access all packets received by the NIC or the adapter ?
    3. How do I compile this C code to create an apk or android application ?

    I would be really grateful if you could provide some insight into this.

    Thanks

  109. Holy f*ing sh*t....LMFAO

    I don't know what I respect you guys more for, hacking broadcom's firmware, or putting up with the hungry seagulls.

    Anyways, if you really need to do some testing and don't have a device this works on, I suggest finding another way to get the info your after, such as sitting in a car with an scope and a laptop, then you can use your phone for whatever sniffing you need when you can access the wifi network. Jut my two bits.

    1. BTW, CM10.1 can be built with tcpdump and Linux in Android's / is possible with no chroot, I'm doin it, so all the other tools such as wireshark-cli msfconsole etc are availble, but I have permission error when trying to create a db with postgresql, most services say perm denied, perms need baking into android I think. But you dont need a db with msf anyways, also there is sqlite3 but haven't tested and also db_connect can use a network db such as a partner in the car while your filling out a Job app if you like fucking with your clients (if only the boss knows who you are of course)
