i believe you can't because of the wifi chip used in iOS devices. its a hardware limitation form what i know.

The wifi chip in the iPod/Phone/Pad isn't capable of it. Your PC on the other hand is more likely to be able to. Even it though, could have potential hardware issues.

would there be any way of using say a server at home to crack wifi via your device? so the server does the cracking and then the iphone just displays the necessary info? or would we run into the same hardware limitation? i guess we would because it's all to to with the packet transfer rate or something... right?

It's a limitation of the wireless receiver and other associated bits from my knowledge, so the device either gets the signals and has no way of passing them on to the iDevice processor never mind elsewhere, or it simply doesn't acknowledge that they exist in the first place.

So really, your sunk unless you have a compatible laptop with you and lots of time to sit around and wait.

i think i read that its the packet transfer rate. air crack bombards the router with a bunch of shit and waits for it to accidental through up the password (or something like that). so i guess a remote system wouldn't work because it would still need the idevice to be able to meet the required transfer rate.

please, if im way off somebody that knows let me know. but im sure i read something similar to what i said when i first got my iPhone 4 and wanted to know if this is possible.

First off, yes, you are WAY off base. Not trying to be mean but that is very wrong. As for the question, There is currently no way to hack wifi on the iPod. The kernel is a stripped down version of XNU, and since its stripped down it doesn't have the ability to enter monitor mode to receive wireless frames. The only way would be to recompile the XNU kernel, write in some touch screen drivers, then install it on iOS, which is a LOT easier said than done because the kernel is locked down with AES-256-CBC (which has a crack time longer than the universe will be around) with various high security kernel checks and bootloads.

Simple answer: No

It is possible in theory. The wifi card's hardware is capable of monitor mode (as noted by PlanetBeing when working on the idroid project), but the underlying kernel/driver does not support that feature with the software. It may be possible to write a custom kext to load as the wifi driver, but that all depends on where the original driver was located. If the driver was compiled in the kernel we're SOL, and would have to recompile the kernel. Otherwise we might be able to unload the old driver (kext) and replace it with a custom one. Either way its not possible right now, but may be possible in the future.

Not like aircrack. Only with an application using standard passwords.

SSIDs have to fit into the scheme

Potentially, if the idroid project ever get android fully ported, I don't see why not. It's a software limitation, not a hardware issue..

Very far off. Aircrack-ng doesn't "bombard" the router with useless data and wait for the router to accidentally show the password. If WPA/WPA2 then it waits for a valid 4-way handshake, if WEP then you just grab as many IVs (ARP requests in them) as you think it takes to crack.

No, as noted above the iPhone wireless chipsets can enter rfmon mode (radio frequency monitor mode), but does not have capabilities to inject! And it probably never will, as we all know Apple loves to lock up their technology so it can't be used for any other purpose than their own.

Again, it is not a software limitation, sorry, but we probably won't see anything past just scanning for networks in the area.

@m33b0

I think it is possible to enable monitor mode, and with kexts it is possible to load drivers capable of packet injection. I ported Lorcon and pylorcon. Just need to load drivers. Comex released white which runs code in the iOS kernel. I also compiled Apple80211 framework for iOS to utilize airport functions for monior mode here:
