Just a fancy name. Don't bother...
***I'm not responsible for any problems that might occur flashing this kernel or what you do with the kernel support***
This kernel was made for my own use as i could not find any working kernel with USB Wifi Adapter drivers supporting packet injection and monitor mode or simply Nethunter support.
I've been using ZaneZam's kernel for my nougat OOS. Since the Oreo version wasn't working for whatever reason, i tried to compile one my own.
My sole intention was to create a kernel with USB Wifi drivers and monitor mode/packet injection working. So this kernel doesn't have all those tweaks/options like other great kernels.
People who want upstreamed kernel with nethunter, drivedroid, android auto and stock features working can use this kernel on OOS Oreo.
Kernel has been upstreamed to 3.18.134(current)
- Stock features
- DriveDroid(CDROM Patch)
- USB Wifi adapters with monitor mode/packet injection
Tested Working Wifi Adapters
1. TP Link WN-722N v1 (ath9271 chipset) - all ath9271 chipset should work
2. Alfa card AWUS036NHA (Atheros ath9271 Chipset)
3. Alfa card AWUS036NH (Ralink RT3070 Chipset)
All adapters on nethunter support page have been added but not tested.
Download from attachment and flash the kernel zip file from recovery.
It is recommended to flash stock boot.img before flashing the zip.
Using USB Wifi Adapters
1. Reboot the device after flashing the zip
2. Goto Settings-->Advanced and turn on OTG Storage
3. Plugin your USB Wifi card and type ifconfig wlan1 up to test.
Keep in mind that OTG Storage turns off automatically after 10 mins on idle.
You don't need to insmod any modules as all drivers are built inline with the kernel.
@ZaneZam for his support
My friend @OscarAkaElvis (author of the great airgeddon tool to audit wireless networks), who tested the beta versions for me.
@nathanchance for his kernel compile and upstream guide
@flar2 for his source that i used to learn compiling at first
All others whose commits i've used
Additional Note - I would like to mention that you can use tools like LinuxDeploy or other chroot supporting apps and the wifi adapters will work fine just like nethunter.
If you guys prefer ZaneZam's version, you can flash my kernel and then flash his kernel for oreo. Then everything will work on his kernel too. There is a small fix needed which will be applied on flashing my kernel.
