Now I understand OK so I did not correctly read the description. It says in all CAPS "FOR ROOT USERS ONLY. IN ORDER TO ACTIVATE........" So I read that to mean, Root users had to follow the extra directions. Since it did not work I ended up on the developers site where the wording, "This APP is for ROOTED PHONES ONLY." Made it clear. I would suggest updating the Play Store description to the wording used on the developer site. I really am not a dummy, perhaps I was being overly optimistic that this app would work on my SGIII without root. So I read it the way I wanted it to be. I am guessing that many of the 1 star ratings are from folks that also did not understant this. Perhaps some may not know what a rooted phone is. In any event I will look for an alternative. Three stars because I don't know if it is good and because I can't read.
Developer site is unclear on instructions The developer site is unclear on the instructions and that's why so many people fail. Also, the developer does not make an effort to give clear, concise instructions. They say install in /data library. Where? On the sd card or root? My phone does not have that configuration. They say install the precompiled binary and refer to it as tcpdump in the developers website but then tcpdump.bin elsewhere. Please write CLEAR instructions for dummies, otherwise people will trash your work and all the hard work.
Works, but UI is a little corny. Works on my SGS3. Follow the instructions if you want it to work. Hint : rename 'tcpdump.bin' to 'tcpdump' & change the file permissions, and it will start picking up packets. Mine didn't log any packets till I renamed the file to remove the extension.
Xperia play cfw Not working. No force close issue. WiFi sniffer says running, shows nothing. Bluetooth won't start. Pretty sure I followed instructions correctly. Upset it's not working but will hold on to the app for future updates in the hope the bugs between different devices are worked out. And you really do need to loose the horrid back grounds. This is a technical app.
Wifi works bluetooth doesn't On my rooted htc desire and asus tf101 (both with ics) the wifi sniffer works but the bluetooth sniffer for comms on a range of nearby devices is ignored. If I turn wifi off the app prompts me to turn it on, but not when bluetooth is turned off.
Useful app. Ignore most poor ratings. Most of the people who give low ratings are complete idiots, who obviously do not know how to read instructions, and most likely wouldn't know what to do with this app if they could get it to work. I personally think this app is very useful, except the ugly user interface, regardless I will keep this in my toolbox。
Please feel free to write me suggestions or remarks you
have to improve the App.
