The ACTIVATE Command

The ACTIVATE command, and its alias ACTIVATE_PAYLOAD, specifies a payload from the local library to set for use on next boot in attack mode. This command is expected to be run from Arming Mode, and is intended for use with the Shark Jack Cable.

The ACTIVATE command was introduced with firmware 1.2.0 on the Shark Jack Cable.


/usr/bin/ACTIVATE [payload]

Since ACTIVATE is located in the $PATH, the absolute /usr/bin/ directory may be omitted.


/usr/bin/ACTIVATE recon/nmap      (Use a payload inside the library)
/usr/bin/ACTIVATE /tmp/ (Use a specific file as the payload)
