  1. Agree, I do similar work with embedded/handheld devices and unless you do likewise it's hard to appreciate how much effort these take. Sounds great, I'm in line! The whole point behind these devices is because the work you do makes it easier for us. We could do our own companion device (e.g beagle) but it's so much better when you can do all that and package it up nicely together.
  2. Not surprised it doesn't work, OS X networking is goofy and there's frequent incompatibilities with Linux. In addition to Apple it's BSD derived. Get a virtual machine on your mac and run it from there.
  3. My TETRA came with a small 12V power adapter bundled with (not inside the box), and I just noticed on the instructions that ... Was this included as a freebie for the shipping delay or is it actually standard? Thanks either way, I really appreciate not having to source one and prefer not running off USB. Otherwise it's a neat device to fuel my techno-lust. I like the orange-blue-red LED's ...
  4. I wasn't clear - I have a few uses for it (i.e. a few wireless clients which are normally unconnected, but which I wouldn't mind connecting). My question is to how well it would do as a general purpose router? It has the basic facilities like DHCP, but is probably missing features you might see in some routers like DDWRT. Traffic shaping, allow connect times, website filtering ... Sounds like a good opportunity for some new modules.
  5. My house is all ethernet and I don't run WIFI, but it would be convenient for a thing or two. That's an idea for a router, what are your thoughts about using the TETRA as a general purpose router? I wouldn't be the ISP facing router, but one inside just for WIFI clients.
  6. Yeah, mine will get here in a day if it would just leave the Hak5 warehouse. Probably they need time to box everything up I guess.
  7. Great, thanks Darrin and team, waiting was not an issue. Just confirmation; I believe our cards charged at order time? So there won't be a charge on shipping if true.
  8. Well, that's obvious. I hope I wasn't implying he did it to torture us, having to press it proves we have physical access clearly. My question is is it really necessary to demonstrate physical access to the device after an upgrade? If it's a security feature then surely proving physical access is better before the upgrade. But then, why do we need that proof anyhow? The only way a non authorized user could initiate an upgrade is by bypassing security of the device and getting in, and if they do that then all bets are off anyhow.
  9. Hello, Is hitting the reset button on the back really necessary for upgrades? With the NANO in the tactical case it requires taking it out (at least I can't easily hit the button while it's in), which means taking the bottom antenna off. Not a big deal you think, but I work in high frequency test and here's a pro-tip, with RF connectors do not unscrew by rotating the main body of the connector. It's bad for the connectors leading to insertion loss over time (the contact points want to go straight in and out, not rotate around). The way to do it is by rotating the knurled part of the connector, while keeping the rest of the body stationary. Which isn't difficult with a professional quality connector, but with these little pigtails it's tough, especially when in the case. Now on this device the losses and connector quality might be low enough not to matter, but it's good practice with all your connectors. FYI -
  10. Thanks Seb for the clarification. With MIMO on both radios the range should be fantastic. So one of the micro-USB is for a second ethernet (I guess it would be via a OTG host cable?), what is the second micro-USB for, power?
  11. I've been enjoying and getting used to the NANO, what can we expect differently in the TETRA? What I know of .... 2.5GHz & 5GHz Four antennas compared to two - what is the function of each of them? Is one available for connecting to an AP without taking from other functionality. Ethernet - what tricks can we use this for? No SD card I think, but various USB ports which can be used how? Will it be using the same firmware base as the NANO?
  12. Try manually saving a log under Logging>Location, put it to "/sd/something.txt" I haven't tested whether that just changes the location or actually saves the log, it takes long enough that I think it saves a log. Then when you reboot that will be the default location to save.
  13. The nice thing about the Pineapple Juice is that it works perfectly in the tactical edition pouch. Really makes it easy to war walk. Downside is it has about 8 hours run time and no Charge Through feature (charge while running the Pineapple).
  14. Sorry I wasn't clear! Specifically the password isn't saved but username is. After getting in it asks to save password and I say yes, but it never recalls. I haven't tried the other ideas, will do but this is a dedicated phone, never used and freshly flashed.
  15. Good catch, I didn't know that. This would make a good module, maybe I'll work on it. Or maybe it needs to be integrated with tracking (a feature I haven't looked at at all). Some ideas ... Changing MAC is a fairly weak obfuscation technique, in this case the phone is still broadcasting (presumably) it's open WIFI desires If you get it to connect then you can try to fingerprint the device, easiest is if it makes an HTTP request So some signal analysis - I don't know what is available from the chipset but keep track of power output from the device - which may have a trend as it moves around and general interference
  16. The Ralink RT3070 chipset in the Alfa USB WIFI you sell seems to register properly and creates a wlan2 Thu Jan 14 06:31:57 2016 kern.info kernel: [ 1483.020000] usb 1-1.3: new high-speed USB device number 5 using ehci-platform Thu Jan 14 06:31:57 2016 kern.info kernel: [ 1483.260000] usb 1-1.3: reset high-speed USB device number 5 using ehci-platform Thu Jan 14 06:31:57 2016 kern.info kernel: [ 1483.400000] ieee80211 phy2: rt2x00_set_rt: Info - RT chipset 3070, rev 0201 detected Thu Jan 14 06:31:58 2016 kern.info kernel: [ 1483.500000] ieee80211 phy2: rt2x00_set_rf: Info - RF chipset 0005 detected Thu Jan 14 06:31:58 2016 kern.debug kernel: [ 1483.530000] ieee80211 phy2: Selected rate control algorithm 'minstrel_ht'
  17. On my Nexus (5 I think) running latest OS Chrome isn't saving and filling in the password properly, but on the desktop it works fine. Anybody else seeing this? Also the Android device unfortunately charges from the USB port and it can't be turned off from the Android side I believe. Any adapters to alleviate this issue? Ideally I'd like the Android to stay tethered throughout the day (without draining the Pineapple battery) and would autofill the password for quick access. Thanks much
  18. Thanks - great suggestion. One concern is that many battery packs are crappy so good, reliable ones are great to know about. The 20k mAh is a little big but might still fit in the tactical pouch. Unfortunately the USB port is offset, but a short USB extension cable (ideally right angled) might work.
  19. (carefully spending one of the 3 posts I can make today - please help me get out of this hell :) I'm greatly enjoying the usability of the tactical edition, I easily enticed my buddy (who I've been trying to convince to get a VPN) to take out his phone, from which I captured a MAC. Now I'm readying the pwning and much hilarity. Anyhow so far I'm getting about six or seven hours off of it while running in monitoring mode. Not bad but I'm looking for a longer lived version. One issue might be that a tethered Android charges from it, though oddly I don't think I see much running time difference between keeping one tethered and not (the phone is probably just generally charged). So I'm looking for one with greater capacity and ideally charge through capability (Pinapple stays powered when charging the battery externally - the Pinapple battery doesn't have this). So, it would need to be > 4000 mAh - ideally double this for one day use 2.5" x 5" x 0.5" USB port in the center (ideally) power switch (ideally) charge though Any candidates?
  20. Hi Darren, For curiosity, what specifically is the problem? Calibration seems to apply only to the radios, which would seem to be the gain/loss correction, as I assume you don't make any match corrections here. If so why is the calibration critical? I work in teh bizzness so am just wondering. Also what does it take to get out of the "You can make 3 more posts today" hell? Thanks for all your hard work
  21. Yes, as I mentioned it was formatted on the Pinapple (using the Advanced option). Same for the second one. Oddly the second one didn't register the card until I formatted, even though it had already been formatted with the previous firmware (both formatted by the Pineapple)
  22. Sorry for the double post but unfortunately I can't edit previous posts - I forgot to mention that I have another Nano with a 2GB card which reports it as 872M filesystem.
  23. Great work guys! noob question, I have the Alfa wireless dongle from the shop plugged into the USB on the bottom (the input port opposite side of the blue light), with the other (host) side plugged into a Linux box. I'm seeing br-lan eth0 lo wlan0 wlan1 wlan1mon in the Networking Advanced, but the dongle seemed to register properly in the report. Should it auto report as a wlan2, or do I need to do something? Second question, I have a freshly formatted (on the Pineapple) 4GB SD card which is being reported as Filesystem Size Used Available Use % Mounted on /dev/sdcard/sd1 2.8G 4.4M 2.6G 0% /sd Does the Pineapple have trouble with 4GB cards? Its possible I suppose there is something wrong with the card (bad blocks) Thanks much -
