Question Recover WiFi key (Aircrack) on Android?

So here's what happened. Someone changed the key for the office WiFi router, and I don't have physical access to the router. Now all I know is that the key uses WPA2. I could of course bring in my personal laptop, but it's pretty heavy and I'd rather be able to do everything on my phone.

Is it possible to get Aircrack, Aircrack-ng or an app that lets you crack WiFi keys on Android? My phone is a Samsung Galaxy 551. It's also rooted, so I can install apk's from outside the market.

I'm sure it's possible, but whether it's advisable is another matter. Leaving aside possible legal implications, how would your employers react?

I don't think it is possible, WPA2 is secure, Aircrack won't work.

A wpa2 psk crack using aircrack-ng would probably be to resource intensive to run on a phone anyway, cracking even a mildly simple PSK can take a couple days(with a good machine). And if they are using random numbers and letters as the PSK or enterprise encryption, you are out of luck anyway
