    Hi everyone (especially windows phone users :D) !
    [​IMG]
    So, what is amiigo ?
    It is an *unofficial* windows phone app that can read or write data on Amiibos, this app is for windows 10 mobile only, because windows phone 8/8.1 doesn't have support for nfc tags that are not NDEF formatted.

    This app is split into two "parts": the phone app that can read/write Amiibos and the PC app that can decrypt and encrypt dumps or extract binary dumps from amiigo dumps.

    Also the phone app is actually a universal windows app, so it MAY work on a pc or a raspberry pi 2 with NFC and Windows 10 (i didn't tested it because my pc doesn't have NFC).

    Features:
    • Dumping/Restoring amiibos with a windows phone
    • Generating the write key for the amiibo
    • Custom dump format which will save the UID of the Amiibo to directly generate the write key
    • Saving dumps on Onedrive
    • Decrypting/Encrypting dumps from the pc app, using @socram8888 web service
    • Open source :)

    FAQ:
    • Q:YES ! Now I can pirate Amiibos on my windows phone !!
    • A:Nope, this app won't write your dumps on empty tags, however if you have one of those cloning devices you could try to use that with the backup made by this app (i didn't test as i don't have one)
    • Q:Well, at least i can change the character code in the Amiibo to make it act like a different character!
    • A:Wrong again, that code is locked and can't be edited, so no, this app won't directly help you with pirating amiibos
    • Q:Will this app run on ANY Windows phone ?
    • A:No, according to microsoft documentation this app should work on the old lumia 730/830/640/640XL and the new windows 10 native phones, i tested it on my 640 and it works, i tested on a lumia 620 too, but this app doesn't seem to work even if the phone has NFC, if you find other models that don't work with this app, tell me in this thread
    How to install the app

    For every question or bug report you can PM me or post in this thread

    Finally got to test it...
    GG, working fine (but why 2 separate apps?)

    Mainly because when i was working on this i was still learing uwp programming and i didn't exactly know how to make decryption work.
    At the end i found out socram8888's web service and decided to use it, the pc app is just to convert from the amiigo format to the binary format without having to use the phone.
