Angry Re-write protected NFC tags?

Hello all,

So I bought some NFC tags on Amazon the other days. I use NFC Task Launcher to write them with some data and accidentally make one of them a read-only tag. The thing is the data inside this tag is not even complete and I need to re-write it. However, every time I try to re-write this tag the application says error this tag is read-only and cannot write data.

Can someone please help me to delete the data on this read-only tag and make it write-able again? I don't want to throw them away because they are kinda expensive.

Please please please help

Many thanks

I hate to tell you this, but you made it so that the tag can no longer be written to or erased. It is permanently set that way.

Ouch. In those cases, there is no way to format these NFC tags at all? How much did it cost you?
Maybe you could put magnets to it or something, but that might destroy the tag all together

Oh my, then I guess I'll have to throw that one away! This is what happens when children play with knife hmmmm... :'(

@korrupTed they were 9.00 for like 4 (I don't think magnet reacts to NFC chip right?)

I just remembered my prof said before that anything that has some form of electricity can be affected by magnets in some level. I know NFC generates an RF field whenever communicating with the tag, so I figured it was running on wireless electricity. haha. Still, before you throw it out, it might be worth the experiment. You might just get to keep it.
