    Nah it doesnt

    I just gave it a try, it does get the keys, but can't be implemented. read more from the video posts

    so it doesnt actually work? will it get the wep key? if not, what does it do then?

    i hate to say it, but im pretty confident that this is fake, i tested (under the presumtion it was fake) and it generated the same key as the one in the video, not only was the key the same, but EVERY LINE in terminal was the same that appeared in the video. even if it did "crack" the packet and gave you this "key" it would be useless since you have to inject packets into the router to hack a wep encryption, the ipod touch does not have the hardware, or ability to perform the required injection, rendering this useless. I still have no idea why someone would go through the trouble of writing a fake script to run in installer and post a video of it on youtube. even if wep was possible, wpa-psk or wpa2-psk would be IMPOSSIBLE to perform on the ipod touch, i have heard people talk about vunerabilities of tkip in wpa-psk but wether or not you can hack it, is unknown to me, but the cpu, etc required to hack wpa-psk is far more than the touch can provide. wpa2-psk is out of the question, it implements the far more secure AES encryption, your computer cant do it - your touch definitetly cant, unless you run a password "cracking" software to use dictionary attacks, brute force, etc.

    It's not fake but the thing is that it only can crack the files it cannot actually gather ivs. If you try to use ./aircrack-ng ... you will get a "No Wireless Tools" since there are no wireless drivers for the iPod.

    it does work i use it all the time but if you try to join more than like 3 connections it will timeout and ull have to reboot and try it again....im still awaiting an update to fix this problem.. but yea it works

    to the people who think its fake here is what you do..

    DL and install Aircrack (w/ mobile terminal) boot it up, type "su" hit return, type alpine hit return, the type the following...

    sysctl -w security.mac.proc_enforce=0 security.mac.vnode_enforce=0 /aircrack
    'then hit return'

    followed by...

    /var/aircrack/aircrack-ng -a 1 /var/aircrack/touch.ivs
    'hit return'

    and now it will start cracking the WEP of the strongest signal around...it works for me sooo i beleive it

    Wifi hacking without monitor mode? Don't think so. Not without a couple days to let the IV's passively gather.

    From some of the problems I've read that this causes for the phone,'it's not worth using even if it works.

    I haven't tried it before, but I doubt it will work. A similar app for mac, called KisMac, puts the wifi antenna on the mac into a kind of "search and rescue" mode. iOS devices' antennas do not have this mode, thus making it much more difficult, if not impossible, to use it.

    Exactly, this is just cracking IVs, not collecting them. So without a computer this is useless (cracking would be faster on a computer). Basically it's just a neat little proof of concept.

    I'm guessing the strongest WEP signal *wherever you go* always has *the same* password...? =P

    Aircrack does not work and that iwifihack doesn't work also. Website looks legit but it was made using iweb lol.

    There are some tools out there that can get into some wep and wpa networks. Best would be iWep Pro.

    Thomson routers are especially easy aswell as eircom.

    Created a video awhile back: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EbyiSGi9-10

    And also a mac one for long range wifi hacking (wep only) on a mac: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hb788Xjifw8

    Trying to crack wireless networks is a little bit pointless unless it is a WEP network. The only feasible Wifi networks that can be cracked are those using WEP, unless the network has a weak password.

    Aircrack or KisMAC, which is based on an older version of Aircrack, can crack WEP but key recovery for WPA/WPA2 requires using a brute force dictionary attack. Unless the password is very weak, success is unlikely given that these apps can only make around 300 attempts per second.

    WPA-PSK networks using TKIP (so, not WPA2 or WPA using AES) can be attacked using the Becks/Tews method and subsequent derivatives of that method but these methods do not provide the key. The Becks/Tews attack can be done using "Tkiptun" in the Aircrack suite but it does not allow you to use the network bandwidth. It does not allow you to access devices on the network. I also believe that it does not allow the capture of all the data that passes through the network.

    So, what is your goal in being able to crack Wifi networks? To get free Wifi access? You might as well go to a coffee shop or library that provides free wifi rather than bother cracking wifi networks.

    Edit: Even websites that leverage 400 CPUs to quickly test a 135 million word dictionary will most likely fail to crack a strong WPA password key given that an 8 character passwords made up of mixed alpha, numerals, and symbols can have 7.2 quadrillion combinations. Obviously, 7.2 quadrillion does not equal 135 million. Passwords longer than 8 characters are even less likely to be cracked. http://www.wpacracker.com/ http://www.lockdown.co.uk/?pg=combi

    What do u do after Terminal has that key?

    If it only does WEP do I have to keep writing it in terminal or will it just work and crack every WEP in signal. I mean because u have to write in mobile terminal do u have to do that every time u find a WEP network? Please reply quickly.
