Broken Proxmark3 Rv4.0 after initial flash (Kickstarter Edition) #35
I was redirected here by Dennis from the Kickstarter messaging board.
My original Message from 2018/7/31:
I do have have problem with my proxmark. I followed the update instructions at https://github.com/Proxmark/proxmark3/wiki/Kali-Linux
When flashing the new bootrom the following output was produced:
andy@CargoCult:~/Tools/proxmark3/client$ sudo ./flasher /dev/ttyACM0 ../armsrc/obj/fullimage.elf Loading ELF file '../armsrc/obj/fullimage.elf'... Loading usable ELF segments: 0: V 0x00102000 P 0x00102000 (0x0002c398->0x0002c398) [R X] @0x94 1: V 0x00200000 P 0x0012e398 (0x00001938->0x00001938) [RW ] @0x2c42c Note: Extending previous segment from 0x2c398 to 0x2dcd0 bytes Waiting for Proxmark to appear on /dev/ttyACM0 .

You can cancel this operation by pressing the pm3 button
After half an hour I canceled the operation. now the proxmark is not detected when plugging in (the A and C lights are red, all four blue lights are lit).
Error-wise I get the following dmesg output:
[ 413.180442] usb 3-4: new full-speed USB device number 26 using xhci_hcd [ 413.584453] usb 3-4: device descriptor read/64, error -71 [ 416.404493] usb 3-4: New USB device found, idVendor=9ac4, idProduct=4b8f, bcdDevice= 1.00 [ 416.404501] usb 3-4: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 [ 416.404504] usb 3-4: Product: PM3 Device [ 416.404506] usb 3-4: Manufacturer: proxmark.org [ 416.405276] usb 3-4: can't set config #1, error -71 [ 416.405346] usb 3-4: USB disconnect, device number 26
After that Dennis told me on 2018/8/16:
As well as (on 2018/9/18):
This was my answer when I tried the suggested fix:
still the same (initially all red and blue lights were blinking), now the A/C lights are red.
Output during flashing:
This will not finish. Dmesg shows, that the USB device disconnects:
To this Dennis answered (2018/9/18):
I did test it under Windows (also on 2018/9/18), found out the following:
As there was no feedback in the month since I'm moving this to github. I'm still very disturbed that my proxmark3 seems to be bricked after I was using your supplied cable and your instructions to the letter. Not very happy about this.
Usually killing modem-manager and don't forget the udev rules . In this repo you can run
As long as your bootrom is ok, you can most likely do the button-trick to flash your device.
In short (if your device gets enumerated on ACM0 adjust accordingly):
wow, uninstalling modemmanager did the trick!
This happened during flashing:
And this is the output of the client:
..and i was able to read some RFID cards! Thanks! (: should I close the issue?
