    The play store link leads right back to that same webpage.

    No, If I had I would be glad to share it. I did ask at that site about other ways to download it so I'll wait and see what I get for an answer.

    you know i was wondering the very same thing.. an android developer i know that NFC is similar to Bluetooth minus the need for a power source. but its all data the same. im sure with the right emulation of the data given off from the amiibo it may be possible to do. now as for a matter of how idk, dont own a amiibo...

    No reply from that site, and I don't expect one. I have to call it fake at this point.

    Just an FYI, "ToadKing" (the person who made that) also figured out the magic 0x13 byte to get the Gamecube adapter working so if anyone was doubting it's legitimacy...

    I'll say it again. I don't care who anyone claims to be, or what they claim they can do I will not blindly believe what is said. If the person or people behind that site no matter who they are want to be trusted, they will need to show proof. Not just an average quality website with claims.

    I think so, which is sad... I saw the thread update and I was half hoping there would be new information on the topic :(

    No, stuff is still being worked on. Not sure what all will come of it though.

    No big deal really. I got a Wii U just for SSB, and I haven't played it since November. I keep going back to my PC for League of Legends. And as soon as GTA 5 comes out I probably won't touch the Wii U for another 6 months.

    Question: Couldn't someone using a Unix/Linux system simply debug the feed-out information from a wifi-paired Wii U gamepad's RFID scanner when an amiboo is placed on it? Or maybe see if any feed-out info is tossed up when placed on a Skylander's portal.

    All you need to do is figure out how to generate the decryption key (which is what someone's working on), and the rest should be easy.

    Here are three IDA databases of some Wii U executables which interacts with amiibos, hope this can help PPC reverse engineers ! :)

    I've got a couple amiibo serials. Dunno if that's useful development on that spoofing thing but I could give them to whoever is developing it

    These amiibo NFS's aren't fancy, and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to break in. They'll be hacked before you know it!

    The issue isn't that their high-tech, but that it uses a type of NFC (MIRA) that isn't standard with Android and isn't particularly easy to emulate, either (someone please correct me if I'm wrong)

    Well There are other ways to get in, besides using a Android device. Even though that is a simple and easy way for a everyday user.

    True. It would be nice to be able to use an Android (and maybe even newest iPhone generation) device to broadcast NFC, because that would require the least cost of extra materials to the end user
