    I searched through the Evo V 4G forums but could not find an answer. I already googled as well.

    I would like to start using my mobile device to do some light pentesting for my clients. I would like to know what kernels, drivers, and ROMs would be useful for this.
    The kernel and drivers need to support Monitor Mode RFMON to capture packets without being associated to an AP
    Packet Injection is also a requirement.

    What should I be looking for?

    I doubt that you'll find much info here, sketchy subject with a massive potential for misuse. Try looking over at XDA, you can probably find something there.

    Not much on XDA, they don't even have an Evo V 4G forum, all those posts are under the Evo 3D forum. The only post about rooting the V 4G is a link to this forum

    I am a computer consultant who preforms pentesting for my clients. I realize that some pentesting tools may be abused, but I am not asking about pentesting tools, and in a free internet, bad guys have as much right to them as good guys anyway.

    I am asking about specific features of kernels and drivers.

    If there is nothing available, can someone point me in the right direction for compiling my own kernel and drivers for ANDROiD? I probably just need some workable kernel and driver source code and some guidance. I have lots of linux experience

    I cant post links yet but is "android-gcc-objc2-0" my best bet for a C compiler?

    Not sure about wireless chipset in the Evo V 4G. The all powerful google does not know, and I can not find any technical docs

    That would be a great share if that worked with our phone. I see they have plans to add packet injection support too (Scapy!!! :D )

    Does anyone know?

    Good find. I think that says it has a 4329

    I believe that the Anthrax kernel will soon support packet injection, not sure if it has been implemented yet, but an update may be on the way with support for that.

    I've used backtrack and the aircrack suite for quite a few years now. Monitor mode on our phones would be impossible as the program running the sniffing software(aircrack) would need exclusive access to the wireless card. Ex. You would have to boot backtrack on the phone itself, rather than in a vnc server. Basically, it needs direct access to the hardware in order to change the values for whatever wireless features you may need it for. The vnc server on our phones does not have the capability to change the values. You'll get quite a few errors.

    Here's the schematic pdf : http://dev-host.org/mva6igj9v948/HTC_EVO_3D_schematics.pdf
    And the schematic shows the phone using a Broadcom BCM4329 WIFI, BLUTOOTH and fm radio module . And here's a link from XDA regarding modifying the driver: http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...Gj4IBo&usg=AFQjCNGC4krhHsq1B27f9-B_K6VLYZhw3wI hope that this info helps. Good luck man. Oddly enough this chip supports bluetooth 2.1 EDR but I'm positive that I read that the phone supports 3.0 unless they are using a separate chip.

    There are various packet sniffers on the market...
