    Some info:
    I have been working on and off, but mostly off, on this project since April of last year. I want to thank anyone who sent me amiibo data, even though I could not use it. I also want to thank my friend, who did not want to be named, for helping me with this project. Without him this would not have been possible. I have kept this quiet because I didn't know if I could ever make it work. I might release some sort of dev blog in the upcoming weeks if people are interested and want to attempt it themselves. With the methods I used, it will be impossible for a 1-app-fits-all tool, so this will not help the common person. I had a lot of fun doing this, and I hope to do more projects in the future.

    I am having this thread closed because of the people who are being childish and just complaining that I wont release it and calling it fake .

    Thanks to everyone to everyone who left me positive feedback, I might have something for you guys in the next couple of months. :D



    Hint: nVI1Vs, hVIII10, 123I81 (That should hold you guys off for a while :P)


    A version of Cyanogen mod with the old HCE is needed. Newer ones use the google shit that is restricted. You need to code your own app. Dumps can be obtained in a couple of ways, but its not that hard even the amiqqo app can do it. The Amiibo keys might be helpful in your endeavors (You can "work" under the table to find those if you know what I mean). There are also a couple of "checks" that they do that you will have to get around. Thats all I am going to say. If someone else wants to work on a public release, have fun.

    That's tops; any plan for a release or a hint on how you did it? (inb4 amiibo card behind the phone backplate/nfc chip ripped out and stuck to the inside of the case)

    Haha no trickery, if you want to buy/ship me an OEM samsung battery, have me livestream it, putting in the new battery, with the back of the phone off I can do that xD

    This was a theory that the built in nfc can be used as a emulated amiibo ...might be real,might be fake but I think it's real

    Heh that's alright I believe you. Looking forward to the hint, then maybe I can mess around with my Galaxy and see if I can replicate it :)

    EDIT: Oh, Cyanogen's HCE feature? Are you using Cyanogen's from back in CM9/10 or Android's official HCE API?

    I'm not saying that it is fake, but I am saying that the way they presented everything leaves a lot of room for trickery. (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    How abouts explaining how you achieved HCE and cloning of the signal? :3 I'd love that.

    What is this? I don't play games on3DS so I don't understand what happened in the video. Can anyone explain?

    He emulated an Amiibo using his phone. Being able to do this would effectively remove the need to buy amiibos because you could probs just download a dump of one and put it on your phone.

    EDIT: @sweis12 I'm kinda curious; does this support read/write or just read?
