    I see, oddly enough, it seems that Tagmo will read these devices. It looks like this guy already did some work with trying to figure out the way the devices themselves work: http://ghettohaxxx-blog.azurewebsites.net/reversing-powersaves-for-amiibo/

    Since Tagmo is open source, we should be able to find the specs for the device within the source.

    I don't like to keep bare pcb's around on my desk.

    So while waiting for my UNO R3 hardcase, i used the box from the kit to keep things a little safer :)
    It's ugly and temporary, but it does the job, keeps it protected and steady when flashing or not in use :D , ow and it doesn't take that much extra space on your desk ;)
    It's free and shows you how to recycle stuff :P

    The release of v0.2 Alpha:

    Changelog
    • Fix an UI bug when main windows was minimize (Thanks dtomcat).
    • Fix bugs inside Password and Long UID calculations (Thanks dtomcat and StandardBus).
    • Temp Fix SerialPortStream bug with certains Arduino (Thanks Gizmo).
      jcurl/SerialPortStream#25
    • Translation files are now added dynamically.
    • Check necessary files presence on startup.
    • XLoader now added directly in the menu.
    • Add check if AmiiBombuino is installed or not when COM Port is selected.
    • Add Timeout of 3000ms in Serial Response.
    • German translation added (Thanks aut0mat3d).
    • Swedish translation added (Thanks Gizmo).
    • Italian translation added (Thanks StandardBus).

    You can download it on GitHub right here: https://github.com/AcK77/AmiiBomb-uino/releases/tag/AmiiBomb-v0.2-Alpha
    Because yes, AmiiBomb it's finally open source at this adress: https://github.com/AcK77/AmiiBomb-uino/

    Thanks!

    Great, that you pubished A2 and the source in such short time! (I love open Source)
    If someone struggles over Translation faults on German Language, please feel free to send me a PM

    Awesome! I'm excited here, I'm very familiar with SerialCommand and I already have most of my own Arduino firmware written. Expect some contributions from me on Github! :) I don't know anything about Windows programming, let alone .NET/CLI (apart from PowerShell), so I am sort of doubting I'm going to understand much of the C#, but the Arduino C makes a lot of sense to me.

    I try to do my best :P!
    I'm working on a small tools who can tell you the missing strings translation (because I have to add text if I add functionality ^^), I try to find the easier way to keep the translations updated... If anyone have an idea about that :)

    No problem, GitHub and open source are made for this, anyone who want contribute to AmiiBomb is welcome! The arduino C code is not perfect but it works like a charm ^^!

    As I reply you by mail, it's added in the next future version of AmiiBomb! Thanks you!

    I'm trying to make Amiibombuino read boxed Amiibos. I think on the MFRC522 we can afford the task, thing we can't do on Android phones.
    As first step, and as the MFRC522 datasheet says, the register RFCfgReg configures the receiver gain, so we can have more power on the antenna coil.
    The max RxGain setting is 48 dB, defined by the binary value 111 (hex 7) at the address 26h.

    This has to be changed on the MFRC522 library (tested on my NFC module and working for Amiibomb):

    Edit MFRC522.cpp Arduino library and find

    PCD_AntennaOn(); // Enable the antenna driver pins TX1 and TX2 (they were disabled by the reset)

    before the line PCD_AntennaOn(); add this line

    PCD_WriteRegister(RFCfgReg, (0x07<<4)); // Set Rx Gain to max

    ...then save MFRC522.cpp and recompile the AmiiBomb.ino

    Ac_K can apply this mods to their library and then re-create the Arduino standalone .hex-s to put ready to use with Amiibomb.

    but why?

    so you can buy amiibos and never open them, but make your own clones without getting amiibo rips from other sources?

    Just wanted to drop in and say Thank You! Worked perfectly, simple to wire up.

    Keep up the great work!

    First... becouse I can, no matter what.
    Even if this was only a challenge for fun, it's enough for me to do it.
    I don't understand why I should not do this only because doesn't seem to have sense.

    Many people don't want to open their Amiibo boxes, to collect them without [sarcasm]compromising the air inside the box[/sarcasm]. A boxed collection worth notoriously more than an opened one but the same many people would like to USE their amiibos from inside the box, thing that's not possible becouse of the NFC tag metallic protective adehesive that's applied to the box. The metal protection anyway is only able to block weak magnetic fields, so theoretically we can read boxed amiibos tuning the antenna coil and enabling on the module the high power mode (that's capable of).

    This "antenna tuning" experiments, applied to an universal module as the MFRC522 is, has an infinity of applications in other contexts.
    Sharing the knowledge is always good, not bad. And even if you don't see the point, this don't means that others have your same mind instead of using these infos for their purposes.

    I want to tease you a little bit about a side-project regarding AmiiBomb.
    I am currently working on a Case for an Arduino and the RFID-RC522 Module.

    See a little Screenshot attached.
    I hope i can provide the Source and Production Files this weekend.

    Cheers

    Hi, A little of teasing due to the box project of aut0mat3d :)

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    If you have an Arduino Nano, I thinks it's gonna be cool ^^! I be back on this later :)!
    For AmiiBomb, I resolve many errors, and I've add a great feature suggest by a donator, TerryG.
    The AmiiBombuino patch by StandardBus was added too ;)!
