I think I’ve played the flipper NFC/RFID to the end (at least before the 1.0 release).
There are still some projects ongoing (‘large amount of signal’ Analyzer, Mobile dump creator, FDX-B interpreter, …), But this is all after the work of the flipper.
Now I am thinking about getting a Proxmark3 Easy, to dive into the deep of Legic, NFC-F and everything, the Flipper Zero is not able to read (now?).
Has someone experience with both devices and can tell me if I thinking in the wrong direction or if the PM3e is a reasonable extension for gathering knowledge?
Having both devices, the only addon you get on te pm3 is the longer battery life, easier cloning options and more options of bruteforcing keys with a lot more cpu then the flipper has.
pro’s of pm3 , antenna’s , range options, and easy option to dump everything into json/bin more easy to play around, but it comes with a pricetag. having all of the pm3 options including proxygrind tiny pro and the old one, i cannot say the flipper has lf tag compatibillity where proxygrind tiny pro does not.
both have option to add wireless modules etc so it really depends on your purpose, watch the defcon talks on the proxmark on YT to see if this adds up to your interests.
in short , the flipper is a nice toy but the pm3 has more options for actually cloning a lot of tags, and lab401 gives you a lot of nice tag options for sale so if you wanna put more time into card security, yes worth it, if you just wanna play around, keep the flipper.
First, you are quoting @LupusE while replying to me. What do you mean here?
Second, the OP asks about Easy, not RDV4, so no batteries and no Bluetooth.
Third, the purpose is to get knowledge, not to do field cloning.
Yeah sorry, I should stay away from reply buttons while drunk I wanted to mention that , by default it does not have a battery, but it does have a extension option with bluetooth and a pretty decent battery, so you can use the proxmark wireless. And first i did not expected it to be this great, but the battery/wireless addon option is worth it and turns the pm3 in a full wireless portable reader/writer, with custom fw options so it has a lot of potential.
So the flipper is a great toy, but for lf and hf tags and security, the pm3 is worth it if you have the purpose for it and want to go into that topic.
The Flipper makes a great multi-tool, but compared to pm3 , its options , more easy to switch antennas etc. So it kinda depends on target purpose? In the field as a subghz including lf/hf reading capabilities i think the flipper is unbeatable so far, but just in lf/hf tags the pm3 is worth it if you care enough about the subject specifically?
