I've received a private request for the file that AlexB developed and had posted on his site winm-soft (it's no longer available) which is mentioned above.. it will not enable promiscuous scanning on the Hermes. I repeat, it is broken, it does not work. AlexB did a great job creating this hack, however I don't believe that it was ever intended to work with the 8525. If AlexB would be so kind as to provide his source then perhaps we would have a decent starting point to enable this feature, however anyone who would be interested in doing this would find 3 perhaps not so obvious hurdles.
1: The TIACXWLN.DLL driver needs to be hacked to enable monitor mode.
2: A program capable of capturing and storing .pcap files would be necessary at this point as the only program that I'm aware of capable of sniffing out weak keys is airsnort which only accepts pcap dumps.
3: The pcap file would be huge. ie - could quite possibly take up 1gb or more of a micro sd card.

Just my $.02. Comments are welcome. Now onto the file. Enjoy!
