I rooted my device, then I go to adb shell and type su to enter wpa_cli. I was surprised that wpa_cli: not found appeared, although I get information when I type wpa_supplicant.

I know that wpa_cli is from same library wpa_supplicant from this link

  • I guess you really wanted to ask something like "How can I install wpa_cli on my rooted device?"

  • I think that this would make a good question. Either edit this question or (maybe even better) ask a new question.

The wpa_supplicat's command line interface (wpa_cli) is not installed as default on most, Android devices. My Galaxy S running CM10 contains it though. I guess you have to manually (compile and) install it.
