Yes, you could try to change your ROM.

Reaver for Android, short RfA, is a simple-to-use Reaver-GUI for Android devices with bcmon support.
It has some very cool features:

  • Detects automatically WPS-enabled routers.
  • All Reaver-Settings are accessible from an a simple-to-use GUI.
  • Activates and deactivates Monitor-Mode automatically when needed.
  • Provides a simple way to connect when Reaver finds the WPA-Key.

Project status: BETA
What does this mean?
Well, RfA works, but is only tested on very few devices.
Also there are some features which are not yet implemented.
If RfA gets enought attention, developement will continue very soon.

  1. Download/install bcmon.apk from HERE and RfA.apk from the bottom of this post.
  2. Run bcmon, if it crashes try a second time.
  3. If all runs fine, start RfA.
  4. After selecting an WPS-enabled router, click on "Test Monitor-Mode".
  5. Now you can use RfA, don't uninstall bcmon.
Steps 1 - 4 are only for the installation, they don't have to be repeated once done.

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.

Developed and tested on: Nexus 7 2012 (Stock 4.3)
RfA *should* work on all devices with bcmon support (Broadcom bcm4329/bcm4330 chipsets)
Simply try by installing bcmon. Don't worry, if something goes wrong a simple reboot should fix everything.

Tested & works on:
Nexus 7 2012 (Stock 4.3, Cyanogen 9)
Huawei Honour (Cyanogen Mod based ROM)

Monitor-Mode over bcmon.apk:

When you press Enable Monitor Mode in bcmon and it just hangs and does nothing, it can't be a ROM issue. Because I kept trying and it eventually enabled monitor mode. And now I can't enable in anymore on the same ROM. So what is really the issue?

Galaxy Nexus Works AOKP
Hello this is working for me, here is my setup.

Galaxy Nexus - AOKP Milestone 2 - 4.3 - ROOTED

1. Install Busybox
2. Install bcmon - open - superuser - install firmware
3. Install Rfa - superuser
4. Reboot
5. Open Rfa - this enables monitor mode, dont even mess with bcmon anymore

The first few times I kept running into "warning detected AP rate limiting ....." so I increased the delay between attacks/pins.

It works but depending on the password it can take a day to crack or a couple of hours.

Is there a better way around the AP rate limit other than delays?

Tested on SGS3 GT-I9300.

bcmon simply does not work in cm10.1.3. opens up to the 'firmware version' page but does nothing. crashes when i hit status.

bcmon asks to install firmware in stock samsung rom but ends with 'error has occured'.

auf dem Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300-Modell geht das nicht, weil ein Broadcom BCM4334 Chipsatz verwendet wird!
Gibt es ein Update irgendwann?


on Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 model will not do, because a Broadcom BCM4334 chipset is used!
Is there an update at some point?

Just tested it on my i9100.

bcmon enables monitor mode successfully and airodump works.

Reaver sees no networks (even with the long scan option) even though they are visible to the wifi adapter in monitor mode off state.

Reaver sees the networks when monitor mode is disabled.

EDIT: Scratch that. It does not work even with the firewall disabled.
