nmap on Android

Its 3.30 am and I don’t feel like doing anything (guess that’s why I am writing this…)

I have a rooted Android phone with BusyBox, et al but I miss nmap particularly when it comes to Ssh-ing into by BeagleBone Black.

So here is a quick way to get nmap on your Android phone:

1. Download latest version from: https://secwiki.org/w/Nmap/Android

2. Un-tar the file on your computer system

3. Copy “nmap” from ./nmap-5.61TEST4/bin to sdcard on your phone

4. Use the Fx file browser to reload the Android fs in read/write mode and then copy the nmap file from step 3 to /system/bin/nmap

Voila! That’s it.. open your emulator, type nmap it should work like a charm.
