  • Samsung WB850F Firmware Reverse-Engineering
    The (for me) most interesting thing is: why the fuck has no one managed to reverse engineer AirDrop and AirPlay yet, in a way that's mass market compatible? Like, there is OpenDrop but that is dead since five years [1], it was a code dump by some researchers, and there are no client implementations to interact with Apple servers for getting keys, or with registering Find My devices...

  • Free and Open Source Alternative to Airdrop
    Would be cool if we sometime would get as an android app (but it would only work with rooted devices). This would allow to send and recieve files to iPhones from android via Apples Airdrop protocol. - Source: Hacker News / 5 months ago
  • A passenger airdropped a bomb threat to everyone on the plane.
    Https:// not like you can't spoof airdroping... Some hacker on the plane is laughing, this poor sob has no idea why he is having to spend a shitload on a lawyer. Source: 12 months ago
  • Smartphone sales are so bad even the holidays couldn’t help, says IDC
    I guess that wouldn't be convenient because they'd have to press several buttons. Possibly also Airdrop is faster? It uses direct wi-fi transfer (and bluetooth at the same time, somehow). Seems there are open-source reverse-engineered implementations written in C and Python: OWL in C, OpenDrop in Python. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Is there any way to get AirDrops on a Windows Laptop?
    I've been trying to make getting AirDrops on my Laptop possible for some time now and I can't do it. My best attempt yet was using opendrop inside of a WSL, but it didn't work. So I wanted to asked if anyone has a way that works to get AirDrops on a Windows Laptop. Source: over 1 year ago
  • iOS 16 who’s updating today?

  • Any reliable way to transfer very large videos from iPhone to PC? (Not using iCloud, etc)
    I don't really know if you can transfer mutliple files via AirDrop, but there is apparently a reverse engineered version up on GitHub called OpenDrop. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • AirDrop for Android
    The only working airdrop compatible is opendrop which makes use of AWDL reverse engineer OWL. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Join under iOS
    Opendrop (opensource airdrop) Opendrop allows you to use apples airdrop on non apple devices Upside is as it uses apple's airdrop no need to relly on a network connection or other clients Downside is it seems command line based. Source: over 2 years ago
  • An open Apple AirDrop implementation written in Python
    You can use OWL to in combination with OpenDrop to enable Apple AirDrop functionality on Linux-based systems such as a Raspberry Pi 3. Source: over 2 years ago

  • How do I transfer files from Linux to iOS and vice versa via local WLAN?

  • Apple iPhoto frame or emulator ?

  • from the commandline
    If someone knows an even easier method to transfer files between Apple IPad and a Linux PC please tell me about them ^^ I tried OpenDrop: an Open Source AirDrop Implementation but my network cards is not supported. Source: over 2 years ago
  • [request] OpenDrop for iOS 6.
    I have posted a question before and u/ryansheraa and u/The_SamminAter said that airdrop could be on iOS 6 with a tweak based on OpenDrop. Can someone make an airdrop tweak for ios 6? It would be very helpful. Source: almost 3 years ago
  • unlimited power
    ( You can, you’d probably need to buy one of those cheap wifi adapters (such as TP-Link Archer T1U which seems to work great according to one of the GitHub issues) since the one you probably have on your computer won’t have active monitor mode on your wifi card. Source: almost 3 years ago
  • How can I put movies into my ipad 6 from ubuntu in 2021?
    I found this idk if it works but I’m trying it as soon as possible. Source: almost 3 years ago
  • Why I love Android - Airmusic review
    Some very clever people were able to reverse engineer AirDrop for Linux — maybe it'd be possible to port this work to Android? Source: almost 3 years ago
  • AirDrop Anywhere – Making it work on Windows
    "it is unlikely that a non-Apple device has hardware support for adhoc wireless connections between devices. This makes implementation of AirDrop directly on non-Apple devices practically impossible without additional hardware. Instead we’ll implement a proxy..." I get what they mean here, but it has been done. It does require a Wi-Fi card with support for monitor mode and frame injection. OWL did it with... - Source: Hacker News / about 3 years ago
  • OpenDrop
    Not to be confused (as I first was) with the OpenDrop project bringing AirDrop to Linux: - Source: Hacker News / about 3 years ago
