Aircrack for Android?

These guys have managed to patch the firmwares of a Nexus One & Galaxy S II devices such that they will be able to set the Monitor-Mode for the Wi-Fi cheapset.

The monitor-mode is required in-order for aircrack to work, because the monitor-mode allows application to receive the entire 802.11 packets instead of the encapsulated ethernet packets. Therefore, contains some information about the encryption which aircrack exploits.

Right now, They don’t have a method for injection of 802.11 packets (which makes aircrack work much faster), but I’m sure they will solve it soon.
