Cloning HID proximity work badge to xEM 125kHz T5577

Tried to clone my badge but not sure what im either missing or doing wrong or maybe just not possible?
ive tried following some directions but I dont see an ID for my work badge. PM3 says the chip type is em4x05 / em4x69 when i scan it. When I tried to clone i also see a message tags can only have “84” bits.
Maybe if someone wants to walk me through slower or somthing that would be amazing! Thanks!

can you post the output of lf search

edit: add me on discord (equip) or mastodon ( i’ll happily go over it with you, a forum is a hard to use debugging space for rapid fire messages haha

not sure what the deal is :confused:

Getting this issue now after learning HOW to actually clone my HID card to my implant. Not entirely sure what to do now, I’ve tried a few ways to clone it with the same result…

Can you write to a T5577 card / fob?

If we eliminate the implant from the equation (for now)

This looks like a client / firmware mismatch to me. When you first start the client and it tells you what version of client and firmware you’re dealing with, what does it say? Can you post a screenshot of that?

this what youre lookin for? Client seems to be different? tried to basically re do the whole process of setting it up but still to no avail :confused: same versions as pictured.

yea im lost :laughing: been searching around trying to find something about the client being different and how to change it or whatever and cant find anything :confused:.

does not seem i can, same exact result.

Yeah this looks correct… my confusion is the notice you are getting regarding pressing the button to quit when attempting to clone. I’ve never seen that before. Normally it just attempts to write and comes back to the prompt.


yea, i have to force close after i get that message, ive seen a few people mention it on misc. trouble shooting vids if i recall correctly.

Thats a good thing, because now we know its a PM3 issue.

We just need to figure out WHAT?

Sorry if I missed it above, but do the HF commands work?

If so, then we have narrowed it down further

If HF also fails, it maybe time for a rebuild.

I’m not saying this is the best option, but if I was experiencing the same issues you were,
I would start afresh

delete everything and follow the setup guide and look for any errors along the way.


Definitely try reflashing your proxmark first, if that doesn’t work then delete everything and start fresh including compile and flash.


I’ve reflashed a few times to no avail, I will go ahead and try what @Pilgrimsmaster had suggested when I get home from work today! Really appreciate all the help and suggestions guys! I’m very uninformed when it comes to all this, so the easier it is for me to get access to the knowledge the better it is for other new-to-biohacking folk to learn! :smile:


yea, same result. Any chance theres some cheap device that i can use to clone the work badge to my implant? save me more headache and frustration :sweat_smile:

Well, I hate to say it, but maybe the blue cloner could be a simple cheap option.


I cant guarantee it will work, but as a cheap option, its definately worth a try.

Try to get one with full functionality. (HID Prox, EM, AWID)
it wont really matter for what you want, for now, but you night as well get the best option.

DT no longer stock it, but this one

Modify it

Use your PM3 to remove the password if you need to later

okay, thats super budget anyother ideas maybe arounf $50-$80 on the high end? more specifically at this point im trying to amazon prime its :laughing: been messing with this PM3 stuff for too long and at my wits end.

I totally get it, I / we can have another look at it for you

So, yeah it is budget, but it’s also simple, it may still work, but I just can’t be sure

The PM3 is unfortunatley the best tool available for most RFID stuff.

Higher budget stuff like the Flipper Zero and iCopy x etc, MAY work, but they are a more expensive option.

What city are you located in? There maybe somebody nearby with more tools and knowledge that could help you out.
