Would someone mind giving this link (AliExpress listing) a once-over and let me know if it’s the right thing to buy? I have a NeXT and xEM on the way soon and I’m hoping to tinker a bit down the road. I just have a tonne of reading to do as I’m a complete noob. But for $50? Seems a good deal.
Also - if I’m just gonna be writing to an xEM, is there much of a necessity to grab a 512k over the 256k? I mean… it’s a difference of $2 or so - but I did read a Proxmark3 Easy beginner’s guide that mentioned firmwares (Iceman?) were nearing the 256k size so a 512k is recommended - other than that, any reason?
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: Also found this one from seller PiSwords which I think I saw mentioned on this forum. Any one over the other? (PiSwords offers flashing which would be nice I guess )
Personally, I would go for the PiSwords product.
I have bought Dual Frequency Tags from them for testing and there were quick delivery and a great product. I would buy from PiSwords again.
I am actaully thinking about getting an EASY, just because it is so cheap, If I do, I will buy from them.
Definitely go for the Iceman flash, saving you to do it yourself.
I’m not sure how often you have used AliExpress, I use it A LOT; I have not had to dispute many orders, But when I have done so, I have been happy with the results.
Enjoy your reading, actually, let me find you a post, that will be very useful… Back shortly, I will update this post with the link
I am not sure if you have seen or read this post by @identity, he recorded his journey including Success’ and failures, from new implantee to Noob with Proxmax to proficient with Proxmark, over about a month.
Easier read than reading a bunch of instruction “manuals” HERE is the link
Bundle1 has 2 USB Ports: one is for powerbank, another can be off-line sniffing, office 2.0 firmware installed
Bundle2 has 1 USB ports, Iceman firmware installed
No stress either way,
the differences as stated above, and both can have the Iceman fork on it ( Modified software by very experienced PM guru )
The only downside to the iceman fork, (as far as I am aware) is the inability to be used via your phone ( currently ) where as the original software (2.0) can
