Aircrack-ng 0.9.1 for the N800

I finally had the time to build Aircrack-ng (0.9.1) for the N800. Many people were asking about it and I also wanted to play with some of the newer features. Some of the cooler features of aircrack-ng don't work on the N800: airreplay-ng requires a driver that is able to send raw frames as far as I know the N800's wifi driver doesn't support this (also airreplay-ng doesn't seem to compile out of the box); airtun-ng also didn't compile so I didn't include it in the package.

A few days ago I build a package for iodine (a IP-DNS tunnel). This little thing is really fun (best IP-DNS tunnel software I have seen so far).

Aircrack-ptw for the 770/N800

Since I compiled and tested Aircrack-ptw for my N800 for Erik as a benchmark anyway I now made a Maemo 770/N800 package for it.

Just add the right repository from my Maemo page and install it.

If you also want Aircrack-ng for your 770/N800 you can get it here: Aircrack-ng_0.5-1mad_armel.deb

The first N800 update

I just installed the first N800 update which was released on the 23rd. I tested to see if flash is faster but I can't see/feel it, the browser seems to be faster.

Two problems I really wanted to be fixed got fixed: the DUMMY IAP and the Metalayer-crawler problem (I had this fixed myself, but it is nice that it now just works).

I wonder if USB host mode is supported in this release. I need to find some time to check it out.

Using the N800 Video Phone

Today I tried out the video call feature of my N800 together with Martin (of trifinite) and I must say it works quite nice. Especially the use of jabber (XMPP) makes it really easy to use (both Martin and I already had and setup a gtalk account). The funny thing we found is that video seems to work better then audio. This means the video stream was nice and stable while the audio sometimes was jerky and totally un-usable. But all in all I think with the video phone feature Nokia did it again and made a real awesome Internet device.

I just uploaded a new version of IpHome my network interface status home-applet. The update is really really small, I just added theming support. This means the applet now uses the theme color for it's border.

Yesterday I also added One Click Installation support for my bora/Mameo3.0 and my mistral/Maemo2.x repositories.

A few Words about the N800

No this is not another review if you have been looking for one go here. A few words...

Things I like: The overall look of the device, the faster CPU (ARMv6 320Mhz), more memory (128MB), more storage (250MB) and 2 SD card slots, bluetooth 2.0 EDR, the kick stand and last but not least the new pen/stylus.

Things I don't like: the missing display cover (this was really cool on the 770), the kick stand covers the USB port (which makes it hard to attach external USB hardware), the quality of camera seems to be pretty low (but who really cares?).

The software seems to be in something like a very late beta state (e.g. windows don't redraw nicely), but I guess the next update will fix a lot.

All in all I like the new device and I will give my best to come up with a nice hack specifically for the new hardware.

More N800 Software

while riding the train home after the weekend I rebuild my bluetooth software (btaudit, sobexsrv and xkbd-bthid) to turn on the N800. The packages are now available in my maemo repository. Also I found that the N800 now comes with it's very own obexserver so maybe sobexsrv is no longer needed.

Got my N800

I just got my Developer Program Device, thanks Team@Maemo!

I tried my IpHome applet and it installs and works on my N800 just fine. In the coming days I will of course try my other applications and ports, and fix them accordingly.

For now everything looks cool and it seems to be a real nice second generation device!

More to come...


PS: Feel free to video call me on my N800: collin@jabber.org

See the pictures from unboxing the N800. The N800 looks like the device that was named the 870 by various sites.

Can't wait to hold it in my hands!

Update:
    I did some googeling and found this: nokiausa.com/support/contact_us select Phone Product and Feature Information, press GO, and you will get a list of devices ... the list allready includes the N800.

A New Nokia Device in my wwww log...

Some time ago I setup a script that greps for interesting strings in my www log, today I found this entry (I highlighted the interesting parts):

Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; X11; Linux armv6l; U) Opera 8.5 [en_GB] Maemo browser 0.7.4 RX-34_2007SE_2.2006.48-10

A new CPU, newer Opera version, and a firmware name that is dated for next year :-)

In comparison, the current 770 firmware looks like this:

Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; ; Linux armv5tejl; U) Opera 8.02 [en_GB] Maemo browser 0.4.31 N770 /SU-18

And since the new device log was produced by a German IP I guess some people are allready running around with new a device. I wonder if this was the 870.
