    Original Thread Here.

    Want Pre-named Amiibo Bin's? Goto to http://a3095.x10host.com/nameofthatisosite/amiibo/
    Where it says nameofthatisosite, enter, well the name of that ISO site.
    Can't give direct links. Sorry.

    More Info

    To copy them to the PowerSaves directory, go into the folder containing all of the BIN files. Hold Shift and right click (on a blank space, not on a file). Click "Open Command Window Here". Now enter the following EXACTLY the while you see it.
    If you use these preready dumps then you do not need to follow the instructions below.

    APS = Amiibo PowerSaves

    Ignore The Any Files That Start With Amiibo In This Folder Will Be Considered 540-Byte Amiibo Files.
    I forgot to remove that before uploading the program. Sorry.


    This is a simple tutorial to using Amiibo BIN Backups with only Datel's PowerSaves For Amiibo Product.

    THIS IS NOT:
    • A replacement for the N2Elite USB Reader.
    • Compatible with Maxlander tokens (even with the NaMiiO software) . I know, they look like NaMiiO tokens, but I've tried and they don't work.

    What You Need:
    • Datel's PowerSaves For Amiibo
    • The Powertag that was included
    • A PC. Mac Users Can Do This But The Tool I Through Together Obviously Won't Work.
    • Your Amiibo Bin's.
    • The Tool From Below

    Let's Begin.

    1. Download The Attached Tool.
    2. Place The EXE In Someplace Convenient Like Your Desktop
    3. Make a folder with all your Amiibo bin's on your Desktop and Move The EXE file into it.
    4. Double click the exe.
    5. Press Any Key.
    6. Enter The Name of The Amiibo BIN You Would Like To Use, and press enter.
    7. Enter The Name That You Would Like This Amiibo Dump to be seen as in the APS Software, and press enter.
    8. Open The APS Software.
    9. Plug in the AP portal, and place the Powertag on it.
    10. Select The Power Tag option.
    11. Select Your Amiibo dump that you would like to use and write it.
    12. Use it!
    13. OPTIONAL: When you are done with the current Amiibo, back it up with the Powersaves software before you write a new Amiibo so you don't have to lose the save data. (IE: Mario-SSB4-Level34-Backup3)
    Enjoy!

    I am open to helping anyone that needs help.

    This needs more attention. Like seriously you are a godsend. It works like a bloody charm.

    The thing is with me is that I just can't afford to buy all the amiibos. I also don't have the room for all of them.

    You would have to rename the files manually. It might just be easier to use VirtualBox and Get a Legal Copy of Windows 8.1/10 from Microsoft.

    A PC is only needed so you don't have to manually rename the backups.

    I guess what I mean is ,where do the files go to be read by the software?

    Edit: never mind I found it ;)

    Is this any better than just writing NTAGs?

    Thanks for sharing this btw.

    The power tag that comes with
    The power tag that comes with the powersaves is rewritable. I would say it is. It's very easy to use.

    I would say its debatable. This may be cheaper but from what I have read it seems like more of a hassle than having all you amiboos already programmed to tags.

    Ah yeah putting it that way then yes it is a bit more work you have to do. Either way I'm happy in how it works.

    Writing to blank tags are more convenient however they are not rewritable.

    It would be interesting to see what kind of card the tag that comes with it is. If someone could scan theirs with NXP Taginfo app and post results it may help people working on using NTAG216s.

    I have been watching that thread and it seems others were having trouble replicating your method. Also, perhaps a way to keep the card rewritable could be discovered.
