SIM write/pySIM error
« on: January 11, 2017, 05:07:34 AM »
Hi, I'm trying to write SIMs through NIB GUI uaing pySIM. I have SuperSIM cards and a ACR38 writer. I have Ubuntu 14.04 and BladeRFx40. Voice/SMS/GPRS all working with old SIMs and handsets but I now need control of ISMIs for my test lab so I need fresh SIMs.

I can read the blank cards and pcsc_scan gives:

ATR: 3B 9A 94 00 92 02 75 93 11 00 01 02 02 21
+ TS = 3B --> Direct Convention
+ T0 = 9A, Y(1): 1001, K: 10 (historical bytes)
  TA(1) = 94 --> Fi=512, Di=8, 64 cycles/ETU
    62500 bits/s at 4 MHz, fMax for Fi = 5 MHz => 78125 bits/s
  TD(1) = 00 --> Y(i+1) = 0000, Protocol T = 0

+ Historical bytes: 92 02 75 93 11 00 01 02 02 21
  Category indicator byte: 92 (proprietary format)

Possibly identified card (using /usr/share/pcsc/smartcard_list.txt):
3B 9A 94 00 92 02 75 93 11 00 01 02 02 21
3B 9A 94 00 92 02 75 93 11 00 01 02 02 ..
        SuperSIM

When I run the NIB Write SIM I get:

Insert card now (or CTRL-C to cancel)

    raise RuntimeError("SW match failed ! Expected %s and got %s." % (sw.lower(), rv[1]))

RuntimeError: SW match failed ! Expected 9000 and got 6b00.
----------------------------------------------------

Google-hunt hasn't helped much other than to identify that APDU error 6b00 is "Wrong parameter(s) P1-P2" !!

Card reader/writer compatibility with Yate/pySIM ?

Any help or guidance much appreciated.
