The required feature for bitlocker is in development so it should be possible to use the Apex to unlock portable and fixed data drives.
Installed. My new guy (haven’t been to him before) flattened the needle and said it makes them way easier to put in.
How so? It doesn’t look flattened in the photo? Do you have an example photo of the needle alteration?
I’m super interested to know what the goal was exactly. Wasn’t to improve the insertion process? Getting over the bevel? Did the professional use lubrication on the needle?
Actually I would love to have a conversation with them if you can DM me their contact information?
He old flattened the first half of the needle and said it made it slide in easier, he did use lube (his own not the included packet) I wasn’t in the room when he did it, but looked like just pliers clamping it down. He said “It’s like I make it into a scalpel” and I’ll DM you his info now.
It’s often a good idea to shave the area prior to penetration , but since you didn’t, just make sure to keep the hair clear of the healing area
Is that L4 position you went for? I’m thinking of that but didn’t know if it’s still too close to the knife edge and should do R3 instead. Let me know how it feels in that location.
It is, I’ve had other implants in the blade with no issues but after hearing it might not be the best I played it safe and cut the difference. It’s right in line with my hair line on the hand. I’ll keep an update on the healing and post healing feel.
I received mine and have been following a “get the code working first, implant it second” plan.
I’ve run into a bit of trouble with iOS compatibility, but I don’t want to bog down the thread here with nitty gritty technobabble. So here’s a link to the issue, if any of you software wizards could lend an eye. Cheers.
I actually never even thought about this…that’s a good suggestion.
Silly question: will the apex be able to emulate a mifare card, assuming an app is developed? I saw something on GitHub re using fidesmo api with something called Spray to emulate one? I am showing my lack of programming knowledge here so sorry if a really really dumb question.
Not silly at all
Damn. Thanks. I would love to know how you find those links so quickly!
I was hoping to clone a MF 4K but if you can’t change the UID there is no point.
Perhaps another dumb question:
How does one write to the ndef space on the apex?
I used fidesmo to add the vivokey ndef 1k app and then I tried using tagwriter to write a contact card to it to test it out but it fails to write and just crashes tagwriter as soon as the phone connects to it…
Not sure why it crashes tagwriter…
Side question, maybe better for the man himself but how cautious should we be with the new process packaging? should I not really be handling it until install after confirming it works or is it fine to handle with care or what?
Not the best quote, but I think it answers your question
Yeah best not to handle it too much. The inside of the polymer sleeve is not sterile and it will contaminate the pouch contents of handled too much… it’s just things like water or body oils will contaminate the pouch much much faster so we put it in the sleeve to protect against that.
Thanks for the clarification!
I presume that handling it to scan a few times and confirm functionality is hopefully not too bad since i already did that, but I will now put it back in the box and very excitedly await installation
Some gentle handling is fine… but smashing it to a phone and putting pressure directly on the product to hold it up to things is not a good idea.
