If you've ever worked on Android, it's just linux. With root access and a terminal, you've got a portable low powered computer made from the OS
designed to be "for hackers by hackers" in the first place.
Not sure how his 'app' works as I didn't look into it, but if anyone was serious about doing this in a real life situation, sure they could program
their phone. Or build a small arm computer for $25 that could do anything this can and more.
Seems a little fear mongery to me, I mean, surely the best outcome from this is to make the plane hardware less penetrable, rather than ban items that
can be used to do something out of a billion other things.
Yeah, I'm sure they'll fix the planes rather than stick bandaids on everything, with the added benefit if pussing off even more people and creating
even more animosity towards 'them'.
