xEM default content

IV got a next chip.
What’s written to the xEM as default?

Just wondering if I can start using with some access control or if I need to write something to it

The xEM comes pre-programmed in EM41xx mode with a 40 bit unique ID. So you should be able to start using it right away as long as the access control system supports EM41xx chip’s style of communication.

Ah great. Got my proxmark working but glad I don’t need to write anything. That thing is a ball ache to use

Man I bought a proxmark and I’m tech savvy but this shit is next level. I’ve tossed it in a drawer until a more user friendly UI is established. Just gonna use my Chinese blue gun and brick the chip for other readers until then.

There are GUIs for it, but they are also not all that great; https://github.com/Proxmark/proxmark3/wiki/[Windows]-Proxmark-Client-GUI

There is work being done on an Android app that I think will be a bit more user friendly… remains to be seen though.

Yeah I’m sure it’s a pipe dream but I’m hoping for a scan RF button and a Clone RF button and maybe a custom RF button. That’s all I need. Identify, clone, or modify.

If using the RRG repo there is now a much cleaner mobile client:
