Monitor Mode

BCM4329 is being used in the iPod touch 3G, iPad, iPhone 4, iPod touch 4G, Apple TV 2G, and iPad 2. BCM4334 used in Apple TV 3G Rev A, iPad 4, iPad mini 1G, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c and iPod touch 5G. Which prompted the thought why isn't the iphone being used for airdump and aireplay attacks. My understanding is using B43 driver (http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/b43) both are supported (with some limitations - http://www.aircrack-ng.org/doku.php?id=compatibility_drivers#compatibility). I understand it would most likely require porting tools, but having a working airdump on your iphone = awesomeness. You can then even offload the cracking to an online service or your desktop or using the current aircrack port. i clearly dont have the full understanding of what is required to get drivers (are drivers required to be signed?) working to allow monitor mode. I assume porting airodump to the iphone be a reasonably easy task? Anyone have thoughts or insights into this? It is possible for android phones, are iPhones that much different? i would love to see it happen or even just a bit more information on this topic of drivers etc.
