    Ask the dev to rebuild it with the ICS SDK.

    Thank you! Hope we get more tests going! I don't have any 216's or I would donate them to you.

    I have plenty, but thanks for the offer. I have tested a few things over and over, tried different things, tried basically everything I can think of. Some people may just be messing with our heads. maybe I am wrong with my tests by one single byte and that's causing it to not work. Who knows? I can't figure it out and I don't feel like figuring it out anymore. At least I am honest enough to say that.

    So, officially, I am off the project. I can't figure it out on my own and I do not care anymore to continue figuring out 216's.

    Sorry. I was enthusiastic about it before, but I feel we have all be lied to and unless specifically told how to do it, its probably and most likely not possible.

    I will however continue other projects around Amiibo in general.

    I just received 10 Ntag216's when they should be 215s, however I'm having fun learning about them. DPAD any chance of a guide on this? If not I guess ill just use them for other means while my supposed 215s get here in a week.

    @dpad_5678 Hey man, I really appreciate all your work in figuring out that Powersaves works with Amiibo bin files. I've been having fun with it but got tired of swapping the character out on a single powertag. I've decided to go the route of making my own Amiibo Cards. Got the printer and card printing tray even! However there's one issue. Finding inkjet NTAG215 cards is becoming increasingly rare and costly. NTAG216 is still abundantly available though. After all this time is there a chance you've had a change of heart about releasing more details on how to use NTAG216 in place of 215?

    @dpad_5678 I feel the same as analogman, I appreciate your contributions elsewhere, I follow your guide in making my powertags from bins but i also would really love to use my stack of printable ntag216s for 'miibos and i want to ask you to find it in your heart to either

    a) confirm you have been messing with us and this is simply a fools errand so we can give up hope and move on
    or
    b) give some proper, clear information and allow kingoftaurus to complete his work and make many people happy
    or
    c) release your tools and/or source and be the hero yourself.

    please consider this dpad. thank you.

    If it becomes a thing, i'll be in heaven. [NTAG216's tags are way cheaper than NTAG215 tags]

    So I ended up with NTAG216s after making a mistake in the order (the top of the page wasn't clear -- it was in the fine print.) I now have no money to spend and it takes forever besides, so I really kind of need to hope that some progress is made on this front.

    Anyway, one thing I've been wondering: is this maybe overcomplicating it? Instead of a whole full-blown app, is there any way that the data can just be manually written via, say, a simple bash script for BusyBox or something? (I think this should be possible even with non-rooted phones. Probably. Er, I haven't been unrooted since I first got a smartphone, so I'm not sure, but I know you can download terminal apps that don't require root and thus presumably assume BusyBox isn't already installed and BusyBox is designed to be minimal and embeddable after all.) Eg just write the data of the Amiibo manually and then adding FFs or whatever is needed after? Certainly I've seen a few tools that let you send custom commands to a NFC tag but the only ones I've seen so far make you manually type in up to four bytes at a time and there is literally no way I can do all this by hand. Rigging a simple bash script to custom send the data and then handle the rest at the end seems to me like it would surely be at least easier than writing a whole program, GUI and all, and it would be sufficient to get at least a lot of people started on this until such time as a full blown program can be built.

    BTW, when I was googling around, I ran across this: https://community.nxp.com/thread/387536 Specifically this post (removing a bit of whitespace and extraneous data):
    I have no clue if this says anything useful or not, but there it is in case it does.
