So, I recently purchased xSIID and the Xg3. I went with an NFC chip for my first, as it seemed a bit more user friendly since I can read and write from my phone. With that being said, I’d like to grab the NeXT in the future and have been looking into readers/writers to utilize the RFID side of the implant. I noticed a lot of ppl using the Proxmark, which to me, seems like I’m basically reading a different language when I see it in use. I saw someone online using a reader/writer that they purchased on Amazon
Could someone explain to me the difference ? Could I get away with using that if I’m just doing simple projects? As it seems a lot easier to use. Sorry…I’m a noob lol
Pilgrimsmaster will say it soon, but the white cloner has problems. He’ll link the post
These cloners usually dont have a very good connection to the chip and can destroy xEMs (part of next) under weird circumstances.
Cloners are simple tools to do one job, if a white cloner is a knife… the PM3 is a scalpel… if that makes sense.
Here’s the post. EDIT: oops wrong one but as I said, Pilgrimsmaster shared the right one.
The PM3 is a tool that allows everything, you can talk to the chip on a much lower level. You can send the chip single commands of what to do, while these cloners just have some sequences set up to clone cards.
The white cloner is especially bad, there are tons of versions and they tend to brick chips due to poor connection.
Whatever, go for the PM3 people here or on the discord will help you with it!
Basically the Proxmark is the default industry standard, that is capable of doing almost everything you wold need for your implants
The White cloner is a “one trick pony”
It is definitely not the best or reccomended option. ( The biggest reason is the password it puts on your implant, more information will be found with the thread links below and in the link @yeka posted above)
Yes you could, but you need to be aware of the limitations and quirks.
Have a read through this
If you decide to go for the White cloner, Just make sure you get the , NOT the OBDHands with the Blue background.
A similar option for your “LF programming” which is slightly better than the White cloner, although the white cloner you can put your own data into it for writing and the blue cloner you need something to copy so you can write… ( The Blue cloner also puts on a password, also explained in the thread links )
Although it looks like DT are out of stock again, and I think they may no longer be restocking it
Please be aware, even though they look the same on the surface, they may not be under the hood. Ideally you want to track down the 3 mode option, EM, HID and AWID
The ProxMark is the better option and would be most peoples recommendation to you, but I understand your hesitation.
But for what you want, the other options should do what you want.
On the Horizon is the Flipper Zero, but we have limited information on usability with implants.
At the moment it looks like it works with HF implants, so therefore LF SHOULD also work, but we just can’t confirm that until somebody here gets their hands on one…

Something that needs to be made much more clear about the Android proxmark3 client is that, like any other client, is you need to ensure the firmware on your proxmark is the correct version. There are methods for updating the firmware on your proxmark built into the Android client app however these are compiled for the RDV4. I haven’t yet seen a way to ensure a generic platform like the Easy has the correct firmware version. I suppose if they declared the version number it might be possible to go to GitHub and pull down the same version and compile it for your platform and then flash it with a desktop client, then it should work properly with the Android client. I’ve just had a lot of problems getting the Android client to work with my Easy due to firmware mismatch problems.
I keep my firmware current using a desktop client and haven’t had any obvious issues with the android client.
It is currently compiled with GitHub commit c13ad9d of the Proxmark3 client. It would be useful if they made that information more readily available. (And even more useful if they made it more easily understood than a git commit number.
Using the Proxmark3 Easy with my phone is a lot more portable than using it with a computer, I use my phone for quick things and if I am not at home.
The last time I tried it, it kept returning some random love frequency tag ID every time I’d run a search even if there were no tags anywhere near it. It didn’t really make me want to trust it all that much.
