First: Awesome project, keep up the good work!
I have just recieved my GPD, and have noticed that my WLAN chip is actually a
Broadcom BCM4356 [14e4:43ec]
As I can see aircrack suite doesn’t really support it, as only the brcmfmac driver is available. (and also arimon-ng fails to start montior mode 🙁 )
Am I missing something or is this expected and I have to use my external
dongle for playing with the waves?

No support for monitor at this stage. It’s on my to-do list.
The nexmon team has managed to patch the firmware and driver for the Nexus 6, so it is possible.
I’d get one of those tiny ath9k dongles on ebay.

This dongle will handle the job well (has packet injection, works well on kali) while you wait for the patched firmware: https://www.amazon.com/Panda-300Mbps-Wireless-USB-Adapter/dp/B00EQT0YK2

The latest upgrade broken the wifi. How do i reinstall back the old firmware?

Let me look into that.

Same here (broken WiFi). Happened after doing a Kali upgrade (to 20180825).
Dmesg shows “Direct firmware load for brcm/brcmfmac4356.pcie.clm_blob failed with error -2”.
USB WiFi stick works fine 🙂

The latest update of the “firmware-brcm80211” package is the culprit.
Just remove the new package and re-install the old one for now:
1. Remove the old package:
apt remove firmware-brcm80211
2. use an ethernet connection of download on another computer and transfer via USB stick:
3. Install the package:
apt install ./firmware-brcm80211_20170823-1_all.deb
I am working on a permanent solution.

Many thanks – that’s sorted it 🙂

I’ve also done “apt-mark hold firmware-brcm80211” to stop it updating again.
