flynn23 Posted March 31, 2014 Share Posted March 31, 2014 I'd like to hear other's ideas on how best to work on the Mk5's file system off of the actual device itself. Does anyone use an emulator for development work? Or do you just image the flash and sd card and swap images/cards into the device when you want to try something new? I'm searching for alternatives because I haven't found an emulator and managing multiple images is a big pain. I have two reasons for this: 1) I want to be able to construct various setups for the Mk5 and just boot them as needed. I don't want to fiddle with settings/files on the actual production version when I can do that on an emulator or image the device and keep multiple images on my workstation and then load them as needed. This helps me when I want to setup the Mk5 for MITM testing verses pen testing versus plain ol AP work, etc. How are other's accomplishing this? How are you imaging /? dd? Any other suggestions? 2) I want to be able to develop or compile things and this seems to be a problem on the device itself. I don't want to load a compiler on the device due to the security risks inherent in that. Plus the space issues. I'd rather have it on an emulator or another device, compile what I need to an image, and then load that image to the Mk5 when needed. This is particularly urgent for me to update ettercap, since the opkg store version is several revs back (0.7.2?) from current rev (0.8!) with many many bugs fixed and new features. How have others handled this? Thanks in advance. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
