I found that most of the contents across the internet are outdated and no longer works. And so, I have published this article and so that you do not have to face any difficulty with respect to installation.
Let’s see the Frequently asked questions,
How to fix an error parsing `Gemfile
Most of the time you might face Gemfile error while installing metasploit framework on termux terminal. The problem arises due to not having the required modules for the terminal. You can easily solve the problem by running the below command. The command usually installs the Gemfile modules and its dependencies in the terminal’s packages library.
pkg install gem bundler
How to fix payload permission denied
The other problem which you might face during installation is payload permission denied error. The problem arises due to termux api and setup-storage not configured properly. So you need to run the below command one by one.
apt install termux-api
And then you can create Payload.
As there are many contents across the web which are outdated and they no longer work. I have tried my best to show you a step by step guide to install Metasploit framework using termux in android without bundle error.
There are also so many alternatives to termux that you can try and use on your device. However, no terminal is much more flexible than the termux emulator which comes with a wide variety of features such as python compilation, web scraping, website hacking, and lots more.
If you want to enhance the power of termux then I would suggest you try the additional add-on which is freely available at the F-droid open source repository. You should make sure that you have downloaded and installed the open source version of termux from f-droid repo, because all these add-on are available free there.
The Google play store and f-droid repo have different versions of termux terminal and so the additional add-on from f-droid repo does not work with the play store version of termux.
