How to install Metasploit in Termux – Easiest Way(No root!)

Welcome back, fellow security enthusiasts! Termux, a free Terminal Emulator for Android has gained a lot of attention lately. The first thing that came to my mind after installing it was: Can it run our favorite Penetration Testing Tool Metasploit?! And sure enough, it can! One of the best parts is, it doesn’t even require a rooted device! The installation is also very easy, thanks to a script provided by a Github user named “Auxilus”. Let’s start, I’ll show you how to install Metasploit in Termux.

There are two ways to install it, using Auxilus’s script, or going the manual way. Out of convenience, we only cover the easy way here. If you want to go the Manual Route, click here.

How easy was that, right? Now you can run Metasploit from your Mobile Phone! I haven’t had time yet to dig deeper into it, but I’m definitely planning to try out a couple of things. I’m very interested if I can plug in my trusted ALFA AWUSH036H to my phone and run some Wi-Fi testing from there.

Once I get to test some stuff, future tutorials will follow. Stay tuned and stay curious!

  3. pkg install metasploit
    No group of mirrors selected. You might want to select a group by running ‘termux-change-repo’ Checking availability of current mirror:
    [*] ok
    Reading package lists… Done Building dependency tree… Done
    Reading state information… Done E: Unable to locate package metasploit

  4. Recent versions of Ruby have serious problem related to how Android’s linker works with shared libraries. We had to package Metasploit with all necessary fixes and now it is available in Unstable Termux repository. All other ways of Metasploit installation are no longer viable.

    Use the following commands to install the package:

    pkg install unstable-repo
    pkg install metasploit

  5. E: Unable to locate package metasploit-framework

    people I just came across this error can anyone assist me please.
