We have shifted our support and development of the Pwn Pad and Pwn Phone to an open source model based on our open source project AOPP.  You can read more about our decision atwww.pwnieexpress.com/mobile-line-shift-to-aopp.  This FAQ answers common questions Pwn Pad and Pwn Phone customers may have about support for their devices moving forward.  If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at support@pwnieexpress.com.

What exactly is AOPP?

The Android Open Pwn Project (AOPP), is the Pwnie Express open source mobile penetration testing platform. AOPP refers to the Android ROM that runs on the mobile device, and hosts the Pwnix environment, which is the Pwnie Express custom version of Kali that lives inside a chroot on the Android host.  

With wiki.pwnieexpress.com/index.php/Supported_Devices, users can take the free, open source AOPP image, and create their own mobile penetration platform.  You an learn more about AOPP at www.pwnieexpress.com/aopp.

Can I use AOPP on a device I purchased from Pwnie Express?

Yes, in fact, updating to AOPP ROM is required to continue to access Over-the-Air (OTA) updates.

Pwn Pads and Pwn Phones shipped in the last year are already running an AOPP ROM, and will still be able to obtain Over-the-Air (OTA) updates. 

Most customers running older gear have already updated to the AOPP ROM. For info on upgrading your Pwnie Express phone or tablet, see wiki.pwnieexpress.com/index.php/Installing_AOPP#Upgrading_Over-the-Air.

Will there still be new versions of software available for my Pwn Pad or Pwn Phone?
