Yeah, there seems to be some mess with the bbc code.

Here you go



The rest of the apps and some pics from kimocoder can be found here


So I was running the los build. I wanted full functionality so decided to fall back to 7.1.2. I used my fbe TWRP to erase all partitions. Then used the Nexus root toolkit to flash 7.1.2, it was the only method that didn't hang on boot can't parse 0x. That went well, only issue 2 vendor partitions stock and squashfs. In any event I used the link from post 15 as it's the only one that works for 8 core. The issue is both sideboard and TWRP install ends with can't patch boot IMG. Anyone one else experiencing this, more important anyone got a fix. EDIT
Durring write up.i decided to use the Nexus root toolkit to flash zips and got success. I'm not sure what the magic element is but it worked.

    Running wifite2 through SSH with JuiceSSH

    Running airodump-ng using the external AWUS036ACH. - Hijacker packs aircrack-ng suite, reaver wps and mdk3 but also has a cracking & scripting option.

    A few of my tools, for me WiFi and MITM is important.

    [ Installation ]
    We recommend you start from scratch and setup the device, full restore to fresh v7.1.2 is recommended,
    even though this kernel supports Android 8.1 too, some of the tools can't right now unfortunately.

    1. Find the original, stock firmware over here and choose the latest 7.1.2 (N2G48C, Aug 2017)
    2. Press & hold VOLUME DOWN [ - ] and POWER to reboot to bootloader
    3. Flash the stock firmware with "flash-all.bat" on Windows or "flash-all.sh" for Linux users
    4. Boot into stock and ENABLE developer setting (the menu you get after SPAMMING 5-7 times on the "Build Number" in "Settings" and "About Phone"
    -- here you may use the phone to download the kernel zip for flashing afterwards. or use "adb sideload" later on.
    5. With ADB enabled, reboot to BOOTLOADER
    6. Get TWRP recovery from over here and flash it with "fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.3.1-0-angler.img"
    7. VOLUME UP or DOWN and choose "Recovery Mode"
    8. In recovery mode
    9. Either flash the kernel zip (if you downloaded in the phone before reboot), or go to "Advanced" and use "ADB Sideload"
    10. If you ended up with "ADB Sideload" open Terminal or "Minimal ADB" prompt (Windows) and flash the kernel with "adb sideload < file.zip >
    11. After flashing the kernel, you also would need root. We suggest using Magisk root which you may find over here
    And flash the latest stable release. Same method as earlier.

    12. Open "Magisk Manager" and search for "busybox" -- Install it and reboot again in order to activate it.
    13. Start installing apps, e.g Hijacker official link
    --- Nexmon and it's tools ain't a bad choice either, the WiFi SoC is BCM4358 and supported. Grab it over here
    14. A Terminal would also be useful here, grap it from NetHunter repo right about here
    15. The NetHunter App should also be in place. Direkt link
    16. zANTI from Zimperium is loaded with nmap with NSE scripts/plugins and is pretty nifty one. grab it right here!
    17. cSploit is available right here
    (it's getting outdated, but a few things work).

    Oh, it's been 2 months since I try to get the nexus 6p to work normally.

    I tried updating to android 8.0 / 8.1, do a clean install and repeat the instructions for android 7.1.2 ...
    Now I have 8.1 with the kernel from the post above.
    Hijacker, all the same problems remained + Bluetooth stopped working and Hijacker crashes at startup.

    What am I doing wrong?

    We have just released new official NetHunter images for Android 8.1 & LOS 17.1:


    They include injection support for ath9k, rtl8192cu, rtl8812au, rtl8814au, rtl8821au, rt3070

    We are about to start a new thread for this release. It'll be up in a couple of days.
