Thinking about hacking a hacked Android

Well, this sounds quite unusual but let me explain: I'm running → CodeButter on my Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1. This phone was shipped with Windows Mobile 6.1. No one is developing WM6.1 apps anymore and Android has always been interesting for me. Unfortunately there is still no perfect Android ROM.

I decided to try CodeButter. CodeButter is the most stable Android ROM for my phone. But there are still some severe bugs although it's currently a "Release Candidate #3". The hardware keys stop working very often. I'm not yet able to reproduce this bug actively but it might be useful to write some scripts. I'll be keeping → imoseyon's information on crond in mind.

Maybe there is a way to hook into some events or periodically check the status of the keyboard driver?

Browser Exploitation Framework LiveCD

Via: → net-security.org/

The Browser Exploitation Framework (→ BeEF) is a penetration testing tool that focuses on the web browser.

BeEF allows penetration testers to assess the actual security posture of a target environment by using client-side attack vectors. Unlike other security frameworks, BeEF looks past the hardened network perimeter and client system, and examines exploitability within the context of the one open door: the web browser.

BeEF will hook one or more web browsers and use them as beachheads for launching directed command modules and further attacks against the system from within the browser context.

The → LiveCD includes a working install or BeEF, Metasploit and sqlmap. It is based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and is configured to use Ruby 1.9.3p194. It was generated using Remastersys and it's dist command.

Build a Wi-Fi antenna using household materials

Who'd have thought that a toilet-brush holder, of all things, would turn out to be an excellent Wi-Fi antenna? The lesson is that you can achieve great results for little expense - and half an hour's work.

The range of a WiFi router can be considerably extended simply by connecting a directional antenna. Standard omni-directional stub antennas are at the lower end of the performance scale, and they quickly come up against their limits when you need to give your own home better coverage, provide your neighbour with DSL, or pick up as many radio networks as possible while war driving.

Running PS2 games from fileserver

Did you know that it is possible to run PS2 games from any SMB powered server? You can store your games on a Server, NAS or your PC. This helps keeping your fragile PS2 laser alive, saves your games and speeds up loading times. How?

You simply need a SMB share - Windows users have the easiest way. Linux users can use samba. The share should be accessible with an anonymous guest account but it can be password protected (didn't test). The share is called "PS2SMB" by default but its name may vary. Connect your PS2 to your network. Run "OpenPS2Loader" (download v0.9 here). Fill in all necessary settings to connect your PS2 with your SMB share. Now you can run ISO images or USB Advance slices through network. Have fun!

PlayStation 2 FireWire?

If you're wondering about that "S400" port on your fat PS2 you're damn right, it's a FireWire 400 port! You can use FireWire HDDs with far more speed than USB 1.1 on this port. Try Playstation 2 External Storage Device Game Loader (PS2ESDL)!
