Hello all, long time lurker first time poster :)

With all the yardstick1 stuff happening, I dug through a box and started to play with the <1Ghz ToorCon14 badge and am running into an issue.

I am running Kali 2.0 natively on a IBM X230 laptop and recieving the error "AttributeError: RfCat instance has no attribute 'chipnum'"

I have googled this but not come up with anything substantial, honestly I am not where to focus my troubleshooting efforts.

I have tried both from the package included in the Kali repo and from the source pulled from bitbucket with the same results.

I have included what information I think might be relevant, but I am at a loss as to what is causing this error.

Any help or advice you could provide would be awesome, and thanks in advance!

So I got this badge going after some banging my head against the wall and some help from someone on #rfcat.

Basically I had to re-flash the firmware, but was holding me up is I could not put it into boot loader mode via software.

So I did this:

Pulled the latest rfcat repository from github

Jumpered P2 and GND to get the badge into boot loader mode (verified by a solid LED light)

Ran "make clean installRfCatDonsDongleCCBootloader" (as this badge was biased off Don's Dongle)

Ran rfcat -r

Bam! RF fun awaits..

Hopefully this can help someone if they are stuck where I was..
