    Hi,

    I usually see many questions about the Amiibo, N2(Amiiqo), Datel Power Saves, TagMo... And nothing was easy and cheap to do an Amiibo Clone Tag... So I'm glad to bring you AmiiBomb!
    A tools for windows, with cheap component used, for create Amiibo Tag (NTAG215).

    • What's you need?

    - 1x Windows PC
    - 1x Arduino Uno R3 (around $4)
    - 1x USB Cable Type AB (pretty sure you already have it)
    - 1x RFID Module RC522 (around $2)
    - 7x Pin Wire Male-Female (around $1 for x20)
    - 1x Soldering Iron Kit
    - Many NTAG215 as you want Amiibo Tag (around $34 for x100)

    • What you have to do?
    [​IMG]
    You have to solder the pins on the RC522 Module and connect them following this schematics. Connect the Arduino Uno to the PC by USB and That's all! (Guys with soldering skills already know that but I prefer explain for anyone!)

    • And when the hardware is ready?

    You have to run AmiiBomb, Set an Amiibo folder (*.bin files), select the Amiibo Keys, flash the AmiiBombuino Firmware to the Arduino, and you are ready to Read and Write Amiibo Tag.

    *.bin folder
    It's the folder where you can put your Amiibo dump (found on internet, Google is your friend for that).
    You can save the readed Amiibo here too, to write it back to another NTAG. You don't have to re-execute AmiiBomb, it's looking for folder changes automatically.

    Amiibo Keys
    You probably already have them if you know a little how Amiibo cloning works. If not, a little helper is in AmiiBomb. For Copyright, we can't distribute them, but there is many place to found them. AmiiBomb send you to the right website, you juste have to highlight the keys chars and copy them to the Clipboard, AmiiBomb check if a valid keys was inside, and ask you to them. If you have already them, you just have to select the keys file.

    Amiibombuino Firmware
    Just an Arduino program who communicate with AmiiBomb, You can flash it through the Arduino IDE or using the Flasher Program in AmiiBomb.

    What is done?
    - Grab info of an Amiibo Dump via Amiibo.life website.
    - Cache system for Amiibo Dump informations in a file.
    - Enable/Disable and Reset Informations Caching files.
    - Reconize encrypted/decrypted Amiibo Dump.
    - Decrypt/Encrypt Amiibo Dump.
    - Able to fix the incorrect size of one type of Amiibo Dump (Power Saves or N2? I don't know:/)
    - Extract and Write AppData of an Amiibo Dump (partially done).
    - Help to found Amiibo Keys and Autodetect them in Clipboard for save them in file (a bug need to be fixed).
    - Multilanguages (Right now english and french, contact me if you want to translate it).
    - Read a NTAG215 and save it to an Amiibo Dump file.
    - Write an Amiibo Dump file to an NTAG215.

    What I have to do?
    - Flash AmiiBombuino Firmware inside AmiiBomb (actually I use Arduino IDE).
    - Add more Amiibo Tag informations.
    - Many little things to do AmiiBomb more User Friendly.
    - Clean the code.

    What's Next?
    - It's work really fine with an NTAG215 but I don't know if it's work with an Amiibo ^^'!
    - AppData editor (for SSB Amiibo or any others who have interesting things inside).
    - Support PN532 NFC Module in AmiiBombuino.
    - Do it Open Source.

    As you can understand, for now, I can't release it because there is many things to do who are missings. I can't list all of them. But I have to do this topic for know if there are people interested by AmiiBomb? I hope release AmiiBomb and AmiiBombuino in less of one month.
    In a future, I would own an N2 and a PowerSaves to add many functionality as possible in AmiiBomb. If you have any kind of ideas or suggestions, just let me know :)!

    Thanks.

    If you could get the software to work with the NFC usb programmer that comes with the N2 that would be amazing for folks that dont own an android phone and wish to use their PC to make tags.

    There's cheap clones such as this one. They all do the same thing, you just might have to download separate drivers from online.

    This doesn't appear to make you use your phone but an Arduino instead. (Please correct me if I'm wrong)

    Whoops. Sorry about that. But currently it seems the software only supports Arduino to flash the images which is a good thing for people like me who ordered 10 Arduinos for an unfinished project :D

    It will be cool if in the future your program will work with N2elite too.
    - Restore bin file to selected slot
    - Activate selected slot

    Just a response on the few questions here :) :

    - AmiiBomb it just for windows. Can probably ported with Mono when I put AmiiBomb open source.

    - For the announced prices of the differents parts, you can found them on Aliexpress or Ebay...

    - It's not compatible to Skylanders, maybe in future due to hardware used, but right now I'm focus on Amiibo.

    - For the N2 support, Right now I can promise anything but it's maybe able to modify it. I don't own N2/Amiiqo so for now, it's just an idea to support it.

    - For all traductions purpose, I keep your names in my mind, and contact you when the release still here soon.
