Time to finally pen-test on my androids

I install custom recoveries very infrequently and I rarely remember all the commands necessary for it. The link here really helped remind me how simple it is. How to flash a custom recovery (like CWM or TWRP) on Android.

I’ve been in need of a junker device that I can use to test out sniffing and hijacking with. I now have two test devices.

  • 1 x Galaxy S4 with TWRP and CM 12. With Zanti.
  • 1 x HTC rezound with CWM and CM 10 (unofficial). Thanks recycling box at work.

The HTC rezound required that I go through a token generation process at HTCDEV.com (heed the SSL error. Non-trusted issuer). This isn’t something I’ve done before, but wasn’t that difficult. The only obnoxious part is having to give them an email address. Thanks 10minutemail.


Hooray for enough devices to do pen-testing. Now I can learn sweet stuff *AND* remain ethical all at the same time!
