    No you can't.
    Last time I checked that was the only seller on AliExpress that sold NTAG215 stickers, you can buy cards for a little more, but I don't think there are any sellers there that sell lower quantities. You can get 10 tags on eBay for $10 but at that price, you might as well buy 100 for $30 so at least you won't run out for a while. You'll probably need more than 10.

    When I used a Tagmo SSB Link in Breath of the Wild, it spawns Epona every single time I scan it instead of spawning different loot. Does anyone know why that might be and what, if anything, I can do to change it?

    I've been looking into the N2Elite device. Not the N2Elite NFC Reader/Writer, just the NTAG215 emulator. I think it's about $40 for just the emulator.

    Because since I already have a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge that has NFC built in, I don't need the NFC Reader/Writer that they sell.

    And that NTAG215 emulator, it can store up to 200 Amiibo bins, so you can have all of your Amiibos in once little device. It's very convenient.

    Even if you don't want to go through the trouble with pressing the button on the emulator to find a specific amiibo you want, since you have a lot of Amiibos. You can just use your phone to flash the amiibo you want right then and there. Since you always will have your phone with you anyway. And the first Amiibo I think will always be the last Amiibo you write to the emulator.

    Has anyone used the N2Elite NTAG emulator yet? I would like to hear someone's opinions about the device from someone that used it before. Before I go and order it.

    best option is AcK77's AmiiBomb and the required gear, maybe someday that software will support powersaves.

    You can't rewire them. If they are left unlocked they won't be recognized as amiibo. They don't have to be round. They can be any size. Square, rectangle, credit card. As long as they are ntag215. Do yourself the favor and get the 100. I got that. Wasted a few in bad writes. Pulled the phone away too fast or something but bite can do it like a pro. Sold 3 sets of 10 blank tags on eBay. It was totally worth it. My tags are paid for. And I got all the amiibos I need.

    I have no idea what I'm doing wrong, but when I find the keys online, wth do I have to do with it? I've tried saving the whole file as a .txt, I've tried saving each key in the seperate named .bin file, but it says "Key file signature does not match" whatever I try.

    Hello all, i got a small problem. Everything went well but the Nintendo switch doesn't recognise the nfc chip. Btw if i scan the nfc chip with Tagmo then i can confirm that a amiibo is ready for using. Do i need to lock the amiibo bin file or something? Also when i use a blank nfc with a mario bbs on it, the switch will show an simple error, so why doesn't the switch recognise the edit nfc chip? (I am using the 215 nfc chip)

    Maybe a bad write, or a bad dump. And yes, when you write the data to the NFC tag, it must not be writable anymore. Because that is how legit Amiibos are. If the tag is still writable, I don't think the console will allow you to use them.

    Hello All.
    I was wondering, is anybody else having problems with the nfc tags 215.
    About 4 weeks ago I bought some tags, tested them and they worked fine, I didn't use them constantly because I had already finished the game so I was saving them for hard mode. Then a friend overseas bought a switch and I sent my tags with his switch since he wasn't able to buy them from china.

    I bought a new set of tags from the same aliexpress provider, wrote them fine, and today I'm trying to test them but nada. So I was wondering if this recent update might have something to do with it, since I used the same tagmo version, same key files and I think same dumbs (I think).

    My bad. Didn't know you had to kinda press them to the right joystick.

    Can't seem to get any luck with this at all, thought I'd post to see if anyone can help.


    1. Have a bunch of blank NTAGS215, A Google Pixel XL (Android phone for writing to tags).
    2. when write (auto) to blank tag it works fine and says done.
    3. When attempting to register Amiibo with Switch I get error message "This is not an amiibo"

    Also: When I scan the tag in TagMo to see if it matches the ID as the tag when loaded to be written they are indeed the same.

    Edit: Using these tags, as I am clueless about this stuff not sure if they are or aren't NTAG215s

    They look like the right NTAG. But anything could be possible, there could be something wrong with your batch, or they could of been corrupted during the write procces.

    Try a different version of TagMo, make sure your running the latest version.

    I've tried 3 devices and wrote 5 tags, all same problem, everything goes fine until scanning them with the actual consoles, no luck. Confirmed bad batch?

    It's possible. But I can't be sure. Sometimes if you take the ntag off the NFC chip before the app has a chance to write the entire code, it will corrupt the tag. Because after the data is written to the tag, I think the app has to close the tag so it becomes write protected. The NtAG must be write protected to be used as an Amiibo, just like legit Amiibos.

    But I could be wrong. It may be just the app is having problems.

    Just wondering if there is anything I'm missing :/ It's annoying me haha.

    1. Batch of blank NTAG215's
    2. An NFC enabled phone
    3. TagMo app with all the needed files (Key files and amiibo dumps)
    4. Scan (auto) desired amiibo dump
    5. Wait for TagMo to close scan and say done.
    6. Success! But not for me :(.

    Won't work at all on either N3DS or Nintendo Switch, my Wii U is packed away but I don't think it's necessary.

    Switch 2.3.0
    Google Pixel XL
    Huawei p9 lite (both phones tested)


    TagMo itself seems to work perfectly, it's only in the end when I'm going to test the NTAGS when they refuse to work with compatible devices (Switch, N3DS)

    Make sure you are clicking "Write (Auto)", and not "Scan" when you are writing data to the Tag.

    So today my new tags came, worked perfectly, previous batch either dodgy, not what they say they are or just somehow damaged during manufacturing :)
