This massive one-liner should work to install all the source.

sudo apt install -y p7zip git build-essential libreadline5 libreadline-dev libusb-0.1-4 libusb-dev libqt4-dev perl pkg-config wget libncurses5-dev gcc-arm-none-eabi libpcsclite-dev && git clone https://github.com/Proxmark/proxmark3.git && cd proxmark3 && make clean && make all

Now install the bootloader.

./client/flasher /dev/ttyACM0 -b bootrom/obj/bootrom.elf

Now install the full image. I encountered issues flashing the full image wherein my Proxmark3 RD4 had both A & C lights lit red, and it would not reconnect. Try this command to flash the bootloader, and if you have the same issue I did follow the next steps.

./client/flasher /dev/ttyACM0 armsrc/obj/fullimage.elf

If you have issues like I did, stop the Modem Manager service, unplug the device, hold the white button, plug it back in, and reflash the full image. Once flashing has completed, you can release the button.

systemctl stop ModemManager.service

Finally, connect to your Proxmark 🙂

./client/proxmark3 /dev/ttyACM0
