Injection support for BCM4329


New version

I just uploaded a new patched firmware version for bcm4329, this version adds raw packet injection support.


Issues

  • Low injection speed - on my nexus one the injection is working really slow. It seems that the injection speed starts fine but then slows down to as slow as ~700ms per packet.
  • Radiotap - we don't handle radiotap on packet injection. 'aireplay-ng' works fine with it but tools like 'reaver' seem to require it.


A list of things I already tried

  • 'aireplay-ng --test eth0' - WORKS!
    • I had to increase some timeouts for the '--test' to pass
  • reaver - NOT WORKING
    • It seems like reaver injects packets with radiotap header.

Are you having the same chip version? 

My original firmware md5 is:
d5707abb0175a813274b54af613d7736 *fw_bcm4329.bin

If you have a different bcm4329 firmware, please send me a copy and I'll see what I can do :)

  1. Could you please add /data/local/bin path for aireplay-ng too, like you did for airodump. It can not find iwconfig too :)

  2. Great work so far! I'd like to help you guys getting this to work on the htc desire aka bravo. I'm running Sandvold's ICS 0.18.2.1
    My firmware has md5:
    3f65dedb69158adbbc122b3ed7d7821f *fw_bcm4329.bin
    so it's different from yours ;)
    You can download mine from https://www.dropbox.com/s/18zfb3d4o6ivdb4/fw_bcm4329.bin
    Let me know if you can do something with it. Cheers!

    1. Hey Sebastian,
      I've got the same chipset md5. Is it working for you by now?

  3. Awesome work, i have actually been trying to get this working for over 3 years on the N1. There is a driver that was created and has injection support i posted on XDA-Dev in one of the debian/ubu multiboot threads but never could get it to work.

    Also, i sent you guys off a small donation with much more on the way.
    Please let us know if there are any developments with a possible fix for the PPS. Anything 25PPS or greater should allow for injection to work as designed.

    I have some more thoughts on the app but want to fully vet the driver before coming to any conclusions.

    1. If your looking for the Md5, using something like ES File Explorer and bcm4329 can be found in the vendor>firmware folder. Long press fw_bcm4329.bin, select properties and press Show checksum

  5. Running bcm4329 firmware on my Motorola Atrix(CyanogenMod 7.2). Confirmed Md5. Tried extracting and running sh setup.sh and receive "insmod: init_module "bcm4329.k' failed (Exec format error)" Any ideas or do I need to compile a ko for the atrix.

    1. Try change moding the setup script...

      cd to the directory containing setup.sh and then run the command:

      "chmod 775 setup.sh && sh setup.sh" as a root user of course

  6. I am looking into buying the Samsung Galaxy Tablet 7", which according to http://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/Samsung+Galaxy+Tab+Teardown/4103/2 uses the BCM4329. I noticed you guys mostly focus on phones, but would patched firmware above work on the aforementioned tablet? I have programming experience, but I have just getting started with packet injection on tablets.

  7. I don't want to bother, but is there any progress in getting injection support on the bcm4330 (Galaxy Ace 2)? Is there anything i can do to help? And do you need to have CM running on the phone to use the alternative drivers? (CM is not out yet for the Ace 2 sadly...).

    2. What's the error you get when compiling on wildfire S?
      However I used CyanogenMod 7.2 and the driver goes very well!
      Monitor mode and packet injection at full speed!

    It has MD5:
    ecea1dde28963dc1be365fff0b273681

    Wich is both different from yours and Sebastian Stammers.

    I have:

    Androidversion: 2.2

    Model: HTC Desire A8181

    Kernel: 2.6.32.38-Starburst-110416 sqn@drone #1

    Im running the ROM StarBurst Classic 1.5.1.0

  14. Hi there

    Im trying to run monitor mode from ubuntu arm installed in android but if i try to run it from ubuntu filesystem "/pt/monitor/" as root it showme the following error:
    setup.sh: 12: [: 1: unexpected operator
    LOADING MODULE
    SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not permitted

    but if i run it from the same ubuntu but diferent folder "/sdcard/gs2_bundle" it's works fine. the folder /sdcard is a simlink to the internal sd card of android and is used to move files from android to ubuntu
    The problem here is that im trying to build a ubuntu distro for android with many tools ported like wifi pineapple but for android, so if i can't run it from ubuntu i'll can't make an ubuntu image with all installed.
    Any idea?
    thank you good work!
    I need runit from u
