See the notes on this guide
I followed installation guide and external wifi works but not internal. I get this error when I choose "turn wlan0 monitor mode"

I will update.
Awesome! Some peeps saying nexmon works properly on Oreo. Can you test with the following method please? Capture your AP's handshake and crack with john + aircrack. On Lineage OS, captured handshakes has no or malformed EAPOL packets so it can't be cracked

Can I get a stable nethunter full zip
I mean it's the Oreo kernel but how to flash it
Can I get some whereabouts before I initiate 🤧
It's not updated though on the official website
I think the support for Oreo is ended but seems like it's the most stable one to play with fully functional nexmon 😅

    Yup I'm on stock Android 8.1 rom that I flashed using the latest NetHunter image zip --> nethunter-2023.3-angler-oreo-kalifs-full.zip. However, what I can tell you is I didn't install nexmon_draco.zip as it wasn't listed on page 1. Also before I was running LOS 17.1 trying to get NetHunter installed but found the steps to difficult to follow as it wasn't properly organised. So I reverted back to flashing stock ROM and wanted to try NetHunter there.
    Download the older version of the zip file and redo the process again
    Will do the job for ya
    The new zip with a new terminal interface is kinda annoying and it also caused me errors too so try the older version and if not wanting to download the zip you can delete the nethunter apk and terminal apk from the zip and reflash this zip again and then download the latest nethunter apk from nethunter store and the older terminal apk not the newer one
    Everything will be fine
    I am using LOS and I also quoted the steps again in my last messages to that thread
    Hope this help🤭

    I present to you: Kali NetHunter for the Huawei Nexus 6P Android 8.1 Oreo

    This is the recommended stable version for the Nexus 6P.

    Kali NetHunter is an Android ROM overlay that turns an ordinary phone into the ultimate Mobile Penetration Testing Platform.
    The overlay includes a custom kernel, a Kali Linux chroot, an accompanying Android application, which allows for easier interaction with various security tools and attacks, as well as a client to the Kali NetHunter App Store.
    Beyond the penetration testing tools arsenal within Kali Linux and the Kali NetHunter App Store, NetHunter also supports several additional classes, such as HID Keyboard Attacks, BadUSB attacks, Evil AP MANA attacks, and much more. For more information about the moving parts that make up NetHunter, check out our NetHunter Components page.
    NetHunter is an open-source project developed by Offensive Security and the community.

    Kali Nethunter, Kernel & ROM for the Huawei Nexus 6P

    So, after finally gettting my hands on a OnePlus 6 I lost the focus on the topic for some time;although I even used the Nexus 6p still in tandem after getting the OnePlus..^^

    Android Ten is an incredible pain in the ass.
    In addition is the kernel compiling with clang somewhat of a secret in regard of tutorials and YouTube videos, which sucks enormously, after getting a quipped to using one toolchain...

    I compiled a new kernel for Android Ten successfully, with the source in this sub-forum here.*

    Of course, I didn't test it and forgot I had it, after I received the new phone.

    I am very neat with my backups, but I have a modified Chromebook which is currently running Ubuntu(yeah, I am not that keen either..) with just 64GB storage, which I use at the moment for some stuff.

    Because the storage is extremely sucky, I somehow deleted it. o/

    The good news is, I know that it worked, so if I have the time to compile it again I let you guys know.
    I think this is enough for my daily diary entry and back to topic it goes.

    I got the 6P with Nexmon finally working, but the system is practically unusable.

    I have never experienced this device so unstable and before something happend, I will wipe the system asap.

    If the dev's have no idea, eventually we have to get used to the thought that a stable usage of the chipset's internal monitor mode is only possible with Android 7.

    I hope you guys are well and your families of course and you behave..




    @yesimxev @Re4son @kimocoder

    It would be much appreciated if you guys could take a look at the Nexmon issues..!?

    I tried to solve your problem, I did this.

    I used the Factory Images for Nexus 6p!
    8.1.0 (OPM7.181205.001, Dec 2018)

    I used the platform-tools_r26.0.2-windows


    8.1.0 (OPM7.181205.001, Dec 2018)

    1. Start flash-all.bat


    2. Android 8.1 first start, the first standard settings are executed.
    Restart / Bootloader

    3. Install TWRP twrp-3.4.0-0-angler.img 16.5M 2020-06-21 21:31:58 EDT
    Fastboot flash recovery <filename>.img

    4. Start TWRP Recovery / Reboot into TWRP, insert USB drive.
    - Flash NetHunter image
    Nexus 6P Oreo 2020.2 1.3G 01bee92fde6f0afb5afaadcd001433730c1994145d92fb5691427e1c3f36bc5b
    - nethunter-2020.2-angler-oreo-kalifs-full.zip

    4.1 Reboot / Start Android

    4.2 Restart / Reboot into TWRP, insert USB drive
    - Flash Magisk

    5. Reboot

    6. Run NetHunter App + Magisk Root rights!

    7. Reboot

    8. Run NetHunter Terminal / KALI select!

    9. Source monstart-nh

    It's not working!
    airodump-ng wlan0
    wifite -i wlan0
    aireplay-ng -9 wlan0

    10. Reboot TWRP Recovery

    Copy this file
    11. fw_bcmdhd.bin.nexmon --> https://gitlab.com/kalilinux/nethun...69/oreo/angler/nexmon-fw/fw_bcmdhd.bin.nexmon

    fw_bcmdhd.bin --> /vendor/firmware

    12. Reboot System

    13. Run NetHunter Terminal
    source monstart-nh
    airodump-ng wlan0 --> Works
    wifite -i wlan0 ----> Works
    aireplay-ng -9 wlan0 --> works

    Unfortunately the whole system is very unstable with Nethunter!
    I don't know why that is!
    Little teaser of what more is to come :D

    It shouldn't be a kernel problem. Have you tried https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...nter-for-the-huawei-nexus-6p-los17-1.4079087/
    If that works, it's not a hardware issue, so better to stick to it
    I'm sorry for this but this manual is too difficult for me and I've already done this a couple of times and got these messages in TWRP using version These are the messages I was getting E: FBE found but FBE support not present in TWRP.
    Failed to mount '/vendor' (No such device)
    Later after LineageOS 17.1 the move automatically destroyed the vendor. As for me LineageOS 17 together with Kali Nethunter is for people who are not afraid of breaking their phone and what will happen to it. It is not for me LineageOS 17.1 with Kali Nethunter.
