[APP][ROOT][WiFi] Reaver-GUI for Android

GOOD news Samsung Galaxy Nexus have bcm4330 wifi chipset so you can use reaver

RfA is GUI for rooted devices

What is this awesome app actually usefull for?
Well, RfA is able to unveil the actual WPA(2)-Key of many routers within 2 - 10 hours.

WHAT?! I though WPA(2) is safe?
It used to be, but then many router models got WiFi Protected Setup, short WPS, implemeted, which is pretty vulnerable. (Details)
Basically it's a Brute-Force attack with Reaver against a 8 digit pin with 10^4 + 10^3 possibilities.

What is Reaver?
Reaver-WPS is a pentesting tool developed by Tactical Network Solutions.
It attacks WPS-enabled routers and after the WPS-Pin is cracked, it retrieves the actual WPA-Key.
Reaver provides only a terminal interface, which is ok for Notebooks etc., however it's a pain on Android devices.
Because of this I developed RfA.

Doesn't Reaver requires Monitor-Mode and so can't work on Android?
Yes, Reaver needs Monitor-Mode, but thanks to bcmon some Android devices are now Monitor-Mode capable.

try it, report bugs and fixes PLS

I tried it, but it gets blocked quickly by a lot WIFI routers, so it tries to repeat the same PIN over and over again.

@inbg I've tried to install bcmon but it always crashes when installing and logs say 'cp' failed with exitvalue = 1
I'm running cm-remix 4.4.3 with modified Mpokang kernel.

Never mind. I went into recovery, wiped system, flashed the same ROM, kernel, and gapps and rebooted and it works fine now
