I’ve just received my Proxmarx 3 and have installed PM3 on my Mac but I get a message saying that the firmware is out of sync so I need to update it. This is what I’m seeing.
Release v4.17140 - Raccoon
[ Proxmark3 RFID instrument ]
MCU....... AT91SAM7S512 Rev B
Memory.... 512 KB ( 60% used )
Client.... Iceman/master/v4.17140 2023-09-09 11:00:00
Bootrom... Iceman/master/v4.16717 2023-06-26 13:10:45
OS........ Iceman/master/v4.16717 2023-06-26 13:10:45
Target.... PM3 GENERIC
[!] ⚠️ --> ARM firmware does not match the source at the time the client was compiled
[!] ⚠️ --> Make sure to flash a correct and up-to-date version
Okay, so from what I can see here.
Your client on the mac is the latest stable release but your proxmark bootloader and firmware are not.
Connect the pm to your mac, holding it’s button so it goes dfu mode.
First do pm3-flash-bootrom, after this is done, reconnect it again(in dfu mode) and do pm3-flash-fullimage. Afterwards start the client and all 3 versions should be the same.
That should address the issue you’re experiencing.
That all went smoothly. When I use lf search I get:
[usb] pm3 --> lf search
[=] NOTE: some demods output possible binary
[=] if it finds something that looks like a tag
[=] False Positives ARE possible
[=] Checking for known tags...

but lf em 410x watch just gets this:

I see no response when presenting the card to the Proxmark3. What could i be doing wrong here?
The tech is compatiable, so as long a the readers can “see” the implant, you should be fine.
Just a quick note and question.
Are you planning to use your next either your garage or alarm, and the xEM for the other?
You could just enroll one implant to do both…
There was some testing done a little while ago, comparing the xEM to the NExT.
In theory, the xEM should perform exactly the same as the NExT, however, during that test, the xEM performed just slightly better.
So if your reader is struggling to read the NExT, the xEM MIGHT be the better option
