Hello! I just got a new PM3 Easy from DangerousThings (so I’m assuming it has Iceman firmware correctly installed). Trying to follow the Getting Started instructions (Getting started with the proxmark3 easy) and I’m already stuck at step 1, as the device is not showing up in Device Manager. Also tried on macOS and the device is not detected when running pm3-flash-all and doesn’t appear under tty.usbmodem*. I also tried with multiple cables without any luck.
make sure you’re plugging the cable into the USB port on the short end of the device
Wow, that was it, my username checks out. I managed to successfully run both pm3-flash commands from my Mac but it still won’t connect when I just run pm3 by itself (whether I plug it in while holding the button or not). Note that pm3 --list returns the correct port only when I plug it in while holding the button.
I don’t have the new M1 chip but I’m wondering if this may be due to me not compiling for the correct hardware on Mac. I didn’t have an equivalent of switching from PLATFORM=PM3RDV4 to PLATFORM=PM3GENERIC when I was following instructions for the Mac.
Update … Nothing changed on the software and hardware. Plugged in the USB with twice with 2 seconds between and now, the white led is on. I see the /dev/tty.usbmodemiceman1 - now I get the message: Capabilities structure version sent by Proxmark3 is not the same as the one used by the client!
Let’s see how to get the correct software on my mac …
