    DIY amiibo cards... created using blank NTAG215 tags and a little bit of dark magic :)

    You need:
    - a blank NTAG215 tag sticker (Shop NFC, AliExpress, ...)
    - an amiibo dump (dump your own amiibo, download it, ...)
    - a way to decrypt/encrypt amiibo dumps (amiibo decryption service, amiitool, ...)
    - NFC reader/writer hardware (USB NFC reader/writer, Android smartphone with NFC, ...)
    - compatible software to write an amiibo dump to a blank NTAG215 tag (I could not find any so wrote my own)
    - a hex editor (HxD, UltraEdit, ...)
    - a picture of the amiibo (download it)
    - a printer (printer at home, printer at work, photo kiosk, ...)
    - a ruler and a cutter knife

    Steps:
    - decrypt amiibo dump
    - use hex editor to change UID in amiibo dump to UID of blank NTAG215 tag
    - encrypt amiibo dump
    - write amiibo dump to blank NTAG215 tag
    - print amiibo picture and cut it out
    - put NTAG215 tag sticker on the back of amiibo picture

    If he is going to get sued he will get sued either way for advertising and executing a circumvention of protection regardless of whether he discloses the mechanism or not. Since he is in Belgium then it is likely not to even be illegal to disclose a method for reproducing an ambio card.

    Are you speculating or do you know in fact that people got sued for this process.

    That's likely a very different issue if you are referring to the C&D notice Polygon received. They were violating IP related to trade mark and copyright related the characters and figurines. Spoofing an RFID tag is not nearly as invasive or potentially litigation attracting, but I'm not that familiar with the history...

    Do you have a link to an actual law suit? I only see references to a letter Nintendo sent to Polygon.

    This basically.

    I do not know where they are based, but the only thing they were forced to do after they got in trouble was change the name of their product.

    Hey thanks for the link. Yeah it looks to me that it's all about trademark violation not any DMCA related circumvention. So any methods and technologies for copying the amiibo are likely fair game.

    I think there is a thread here with all the info, they were pretty well dissected and explained. You could also look here or some other electronics hobby sites and find all your RFID needs...
