PwnPad Installation Tutorial thru Kali VM

October 9, 2013 Leave a comment

I attended the Pwnie Express PwnPad Installation class at DerbyCon 3.0 and found out how to install the PwnPad image on my Nexus7 (16GB, 1st generation, WiFi only) thru a Kali VM image.  I won’t write out the entire process, just the differences from their installation document.

Unfortunately you can’t just “apt-get install adb fastboot” you have to add some french repositories and install a few other packages to get it going.  The following commands should get you through that (many thanks to the Kali developer that attended the DerbyCon class for this!) –

  1. mkdir /opt/android && cd /opt/android
  2. echo “deb-src http://debian.ens-cachan.fr/ftp/debian/ sid main contrib non-free” >> /etc/apt/sources.list
  3. apt-get update
  4. apt-get -y build-dep android-tools
  5. apt-get -y source –build android-tools
  6. dpkg -i android-tools-*.deb
  7. cd ~
  8. rm -rf /opt/android
  9. sed -i ‘s/.*cachan\.fr.*//’ /etc/apt/sources.list

At command #6 I kept getting a “no space left on device” error, but running “apt-get clean” fixed that issue for me.  Once that’s done, you should be good to go.  Prep the USB drive like it says and follow the remaining instructions.

Once installed, open a root shell and hit enter a couple times, then type ‘yes’ when prompted to setup your ssh keys with a blank password (needed to run some of the scripts on the device).  Be sure to install the latest updates from pwnieexpress.com (it’s easiest to just browse there on your tablet and then copy/paste the wget command into a shell on the device.
