  1. Hello everyone, I ordered a second Signal Owl because I wanted another one even after experiencing a few problems with the first unit. I had already placed a support ticket with Hak5 and was waiting for information on how to proceed. While I was waiting I decided to do a few tests to see how things were working with a good or new unit compared to a unit that was giving me problems. Here are a few expectations based on some of the documentation and conveyed information within this forum. When flashing a firmware the device will flash and the upgrade-x.x.x.bin file will be remov
  2. I'm still interested... How much was Hak5 retailing it for and what are you asking for it?
  3. Are you guys sure it's completely "bricked"? I'm having some issues with mine whee I can't get a payload to transfer from usb storage to the device. It was working at one point but for some reason it is not so I too am looking for a reset solution of some type. But not being able to load a payload or firmware from usb storage doesn't mean it's not working. I am still able to get it into arming mode and I can SSH into it and navigate the directories. I can 'cat' the payload to see it's not the same one I have on the usb and I can manually 'cp' and 'rd' the loot files. But
  4. These are instructions for the Pineapple, not the Signal Owl. I’m not sure if this will work in your cases. Has anyone tried and confirmed this?
  5. But if you NEED to, you might be able to attach a USB keylogger to the port closest to the pigtail and then connect a keyboard to that so it passes through to the system you're connecting it too...
  6. I would also like to know if this is possible.
  7. Hello everyone, I'm interested in getting the Hak5 Long Range WiFi Bundle but it's been sold out for a very very long time and I've not ever received a notice that it has ever been in stock. If it has recently how can we tell? If anyone has information on the parts that make up this bundle I'd be interested in the information. I'll try to piece together a kit myself if I have to. I just purchased through Hak5 the Booster that is currently on sale. I can get the USB cable and adapter if I have to. All that would be missing is the wrap and the radio. The radio looks like
  8. How long or when did Dell start doing that? Horrible...
  9. I forgot to mention that I was told that using Kali as a primary Linux setup is not the best. It's geared too much toward PenTesting and not for everyday work... Not sure how much of that is true. I usually have 1 normal distro and 1 pentesting distro. So on my VM setups I have Debian and I have a separate VM for Kali. If I get the laptop build I want I'll have my drive partitioned 3 ways, 1 for Windows, 1 for Debian, and 1 for Kali. I don't think I'll go back to Mac from here on unless I have a real need/reason. My initial need/reason was for school and software development becaus
  10. On my MacBook Pro I have 8Gb. I dual boot between macOS and Windows using BootCamp and then I use VMWare Pro to VM my Linux setups and anything else I need to test or develope on. In my VM's I configure whatever distro I use with 2 Cores and 2Gb of RAM. I'm still new and still playing with things and so far so good. I've not come across a problem yet. I would like to have a dedicated Linux build instead of virtual machining it but I can't afford it at the moment. I do have 1 laptop that I consider a beast for myself. A Lenovo ThinkPad W540 with an i7 and 32Gb of RAM and 1Tb
  11. You can buy what you can afford now and upgrade the RAM later. Unless it's an Apple product or another vendor that likes to solder their memory in place you should be able to open up the case and add or replace/upgrade the memory. I've done it with my IBM/Lenovo ThinkPads without fail. Wish I could do it with my MacBook Pro.
  12. Where is this spring supposed to be? I can't figure out how to get the black cone off to see if I can find a solution to this problem. I removed the screw that holds the antenna to the base but that's as much as I could disassemble without totally destroying the base. I attempted to use a couple of plyers to see if I can twise the cone off but no go... I ordered an antenna package from amazon, and I hope it works out. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073JWDXMG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Not exactly portable compared to the ANT500 but should still work
  13. I bought a one of each sticker set when they were on sale recently... they're reasonably inexpensive... The problem now is if they do start to give then away free with the higher end field kits how will they please people who have recently purchased the kits and didn't get them... I recently purchased an Elite Field Kit, Nano Tactical, Tetra Tactical, and HackRF field kits and never received a set of stickers... They're pretty trivial but still fun upgrading one's laptop sticker game... and for the patches and other nicknacks I received a pineapple wifi patch with the Nano Tacti
  14. I recently received my RF HACKING FIELD KIT and I'm using the ANT500 with the HackRF. The antenna screws onto the HackRF and the screw connection is snug but the antenna point of connection is loose. The antenna swivels and falls to the table and I'm not sure how to tighten it to keep it standing up. This is not the screw or attachment point with the philips screw, this is something under the black cone. Has anyone else had this problem and is there a solution? If not I might have to keep a couple of LEGO pieces in my field kit to create a little stand to keep the antenna upright.
  15. For me it is a really good show/series. I think if it were a movie it would not be as good having all that has happened already condensed into a movie .
