How to read NFC Tag UID and Header
This code snippet shows how we can read UID and the headers of NFC forum tag type 1.
The NFC Forum Type 1 tag includes two bytes of fixed header ROM called HR0 & HR1. These are not individually addressable by a Read command.
Block 0 is reserved for the read-only Unique Identification (UID) number.
Byte 7 is reserved for future use.
Bytes 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0 are the unique number.
See the tag type 1 specification for more
Native Symbian test application can be used to read the UID of tag type1
