    For any of you trying to capture packets and keep getting a "tcpdump: no suitable device found" error, try this:

    download the BSD Subsystem 2.x SU replacement.
    It should be on the LenLoLabs Repo. (I don't have the exact link to it)

    After you download that, go to terminal, type su root, and then type alpine.
    It should be fixed now.

    i was having this problem but i realized it was just because i wasn't logging in by typing "login" then "root"
    then for password "alpine"
    i didnt need to download SU replacement, just putting that out there.

    FW=1.1.4

    same problem
    I don't remember exactly what error it was, but when I tried to open the log.txt in wireshark it told me the file was dammaged. I still tried to save it in order to open it with Cain, but of course, it wouldn't let me.

    more problems by using bsd subsystem

    Please Register or Log in to view images



    More easy:

    no install more BSD, install Cydia, after cydia tcpdmp from cydia, and all work perfectly

    if you want runt from terminal: su root (passwword)

    no su replacement and other patch. BSD its very buggy
