Let’s say you’re running some tests on a service and want to use some characters that aren’t standard in your systems’ character set. How do you do that?
Ever been frustrated by a session that was running remotely when your SSH/nc/1337shell.phpaspxcf dropped, and all that work was wiped out in the blink of an eye because when that died your shell did too, and the OS was nice enough to clean it all up?

So… I got a Proxmark3 RDV 4 for Christmas. It’s great. It’s tiny, svelte, and… had a bunch of errors right out of the box. Naturally that means it’s time to reflash it, but as it turns out the default wiki instructions for Kali Linux aren’t quite right for the RDV 4 now. Let’s fix that, shall we?

I have to teach some folks how to find, isolate, and analyze signals tomorrow, which of course means this is the perfect time to document some quick steps for my own reference. I started the build out from the DEFCON 26 Hardware Hacking Village Kali Live Build. If you don’t have it your mileage may vary… on to the buildout.
I made a presentation a few months ago based on a simple question I relieved… “What is all that stuff in your backpack?” I normally carry, well, more than I really need. Full list with links is below, or here’s the presentation for those who want to see it in all its original, horrible glory. Ever wonder what types of stuff I normally carry when on a pentest? Well, now you know. Enjoy!
I maintain a modified version of Kali I use as the basis for my testing which includes a variety of extra tools, preference, references, etc. If you want a copy yourself, you can find one here:
Each version is named for a different character played by Henry Winkler, for the record.
