Hi guys, noob question here. I'm looking to modify wpa_supplicant files located in system/bin.
It's an executable files, is there a way to modify this?

Thanks

@OP
I don't think that's noobs question.
I asked one month ago still no one answered but there's a way, these are binaries and are compiled from source and we need to edit source before compiling.
But I want a solution to reverse engineer them.

it's hard to edit already compiled binaries and i don't think there is any softwear to edit this already compiled binaries but it's too easy to edit when he was not compiled mean in source.

Yep it is but I tried opening them using hex editor and much stuff of it was visible but not complete.
I don't think its impossible to reverse engineer binaries.
I believe someone will come up like brut who made apk reverse engineering possible.

Has anyone figured this out yet? Since these are usually small executables I could start reverse engenieerig them but im sure someone already has all the source code on some online repository?

Has anyone who posted above found an easy solution?

boy do i wish the world was full of nice honest hard workers who all made things open and didnt steal..... theres a tiny bug in android 4.3 roms and my guess is its on purpose lol... if i can edit just a few lines of code i can fix so much :/

4k thanks and disabled? Yikes id probably take your side lol. Some binaries are incredibly easy, or were you referring to these ive done this before but the process depends upon their compilation methods and can get very nasty

Edit: oh darn... He cant answer huh? Woulda been another thnx
