First this is my second time posting here, and as you will see I’m really (really) not familiar with all of this, so I apologise in advance.
My overall goal is to duplicate mifare cards (see my original post ), and I was advised to order a Proxmark Easy to do that. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to order from Dangerousthings’s shop (mainly because international shipping made it thrice the price, well over the budget I was given), I’m pretty sure my current problem is that it hasn’t the proper firmware installed out of the box and for that reason I failed to complete the starter guide.
So, is there a way for me to manually install the firmware ? I tried digging on github iceman’s page but it seems I’m not getting anywhere.
That looks exactly what I was looking for ! I will follow those surgically and report if I step upon difficulties.
Just to confirm, “delete proxspace” means uninstalling (simply deleting ?) the ziped folder Amal advised to put directly onto C:\ right ? And could you please elaborate on what I need to do to “clean canvas” please ?
Ok, I got all the way until " Plug in your Proxmark3 or We are almost there…"
After hitting the command “./pm3-flash-bootrom” the program gets stuck on “Waiting for Proxmark3 to appear…”. and I can’t do anything but closing it.
I tried unplugging and replugging the device but nothing happened.
: alright I’m currently using a win7 machine and it seems my problem comes from the computer not recognising the Proxmark3. I tried to manually install the driver included in the “ProxSpace\pm3\proxmark3\driver” folder from the device manager but I didn’t manage to get it done because the device is still not visible.
Try unplugging the USB cable from the proxmark, then hold down the little button on the side (don’t let go). Plug the Proxmark back in again and run the command. Don’t let go of the button until it has flashed.
Also, make sure you are using a good quality cable that allows information flow.
Ooook, so holding the button on the side definitely worked. I think I then got the firmware flashed properly and it seems to work like advised in the guide/video.
Fast forward to now, I managed to scan a card (hf search), identify the encrypted sectors (hf mf chk) and to break them (hf mf autopwn). My problem now is that I can’t copy the data from the previous card to the new one (hf mf cview), I’m getting the error message
“[+] View magic Gen1a MIFARE Classic 1K
[=] .[#] wupC1 error
[!] Can’t get magic card block: 0
[?] Verify your card size, and try again or try another tag position”
And when I try to check the card type it’s confirming that this is a valid ISO 14443-A tag that should be read as a standard Mifare classic 1K. I tried several different badges or and cards, I can’t seem to get any relevant answer from the “hf mf cview” command. I am missing something ?
: sorry @KaiCastledine I missed your last question: I ordered it from a Chinese seller via Amazon, but I guess it’s irrelevant since I got it flashed with the latest iceman firmware anyway.
As @Equipter says, your secondary card needs to be a “magic” card either Gen1a/Gen2/Gen3. A gen1a card (The most common) will show there but it does not. So either its not a magic card, or it’s a different gen which means you’ll need to use the corresponding commands.
Ah so I guess that’s my problem then, none of my cards seem to answer to ATS. Here are the two models I ordered previously and tried : here and here, but there isn’t any mention of ATS/magic on the order page so I guess I won’t be able to do anything with them.
I looked around trying to find a proper one but how can I tell which one would suit ? I read Jirvin’s post about chips functionalities but there isn’t much details listed beside the RFID and the frequency.
