OsmocomBB could be used for many things, one example is demonstrating GSM’s insecurity, but the research and work to do that was done by people who were interested in the topic and did this on their own. Of course the creators of the project are not trying to limit anyone to do anything with OsmocomBB, that’s the main idea behind free and open source, however the project’s main aim is still to provide a framework, which one can use to do different things with GSM easily (not necessarily security related stuff!). So that’s why I told you not to expect much help (especially specific help or instructions) about sniffing with osmocomBB.

> USRP is not capable of hopping for example.
> OsmocomBB’s main goal is not to do sniffing, so I don’t think you will get far with these questions here.
> Also you can easily find out about the neighbor cells with a USRP.

>> Thanks of rthe response
>> But can you clarify what is the difference between the 2 ? My impression was that the USRP2 can do all the osmocomBB can do and more.
>> Are you saying that the osmocomBB firmware can do a lot more ?
>> I am reffering to the sniffing capabilities, I know that detecting neighbouring cells etc can’t be done with USRP2 I usually use a nokia 3310 with netmonitor.
>> Any clarity appreciated
