    More than likely from the interest in Amiibo spoofing with the release of the Switch and Breath of Wild. The game specific amiibos are still short supply and hard to find for some people.

    On Monday I'll take photos. It's ugly, but it's sturdy and it works. I figure even if I rarely or never use it for this, now I have an NFC shield I can just "drop in."

    Just checked tracking info, I got my ntag 215's already, my RF shield will be here today. With any luck I should have some spoofed amiibos today!

    I ordered all the parts and I understand Amiibomb isn't quite out yet so is there any way to write NFC without this Amiibomb software or we just have to wait for it to release?

    Is soldering a requirement? I am not really familiar with soldering. I watched this vid and it seems like the guy just plugs the pins into the RC522 slot without soldering or am I mistaken?

    Well, I only ordered 5 NFC 215's and I've now wasted two of them. The problem is I do not know exactly how to get the short and long uid, which is required to do the edits. Anyone with any additional info it would be greatly appreciated. I definitely have the circuit built and working properly. If I had an amiibo to test with I may have better luck actually cloning one, I may go grab one in a bit. But, please, any additional information would be great.

    Here's a little more info on exactly what I did. First I built the circuit, very easy to assemble I soldered some wiring to some pin headers I had laying around. I then grabbed the "Most complete amiibo dump set" or something like that from mega. In my haste, I was thinking maybe the bins from the mega dump were ready to be flashed, perhaps they are, but not using this method. I tried to flash the zelda botw bin and it flashed, but when I place it to the nfc sensor on the joycon it just makes a ding and nothing happens. Then I revisited the instructions, I had the flashed zelda nfc I just made, so I figured I would read that, then use that info to gather the short/long uid and password that re needed to put the dumps in a flashable state. I decrypted the dump using amiitool, did the edits, then flashed that to a second blank nfc chip, this also produced the same ding when placed on the joycon on my switch. Sadness :(. I did find some info in the comment section of the website that describes this method, looks like the online password generator does not work properly, so I know that was wrong, I may try again in a bit.

    Here's my rfid setup for reference:

    EDIT*** I have found my error, I need the long/short UID of the blank tag lol, trying again in a moment will post back the results.

    Success! Using the tutorial here: https://games.kel.mn/en/create-amiibo-clones-with-arduino/, was able to create the amiibo clones. Sad that I didn't read and follow the directions properly first, I would have all 5 zelda amiibos, for now I will have to settle for 3, will order some more nfc tags tonight so I can form a complete collection. Anyone that needs any additional info let me know I'll be glad to help.

    EDIT*** Just verified, wrote a Rider Link and everything worked great! One little hint, if you forget to reprogram your arduino between flashes and it starts writing your old image, as long as you can pull it away from the sensor before it writes the lock bits you're fine and can write the card again, once the lock bits are written it's game over.

    EDIT2*** Tried a wolf link from Twilight Princess, I might have messed something up in my edits but it does not work. Will try it again when I get some more ntag's. So I only made two successfully, still pretty good though considering I now definitely know how to do it.

    So, I have a couple questions for everyone reading this thread, could you post your cheapest places to get blank ntag's? Preferably with location(so we know what country they're in for shipping estimates). Secondly, I know there was some work done with emulating NTAG 215's using the NFC chips in older Android phones, is there any chance of achieving that same result using the rf shield we're using here?

    I get mine off aliexpress. I'm the oddball and prefer the keyfobs versus the cards and stickers. For example, for breath of wild I print a 1 inch circular sticker of the character for the fob. I then take the 17 (including the 2 spoofed and 20 heart wolf) on a larger key ring. When I play, I just rotate through the keychain and keeps everything in place.

    For breath of wild, there are three upcoming amiibos; Majora's Mask, Skyward Sword, and Twilight Princess Link. Someone spoofed tag info to act as Majora's Mask and Skyward Sword links to use in the BOTW game (the twilight princess gives the same as the SSB amiibo)

    The 20 heart wolf is the Wolf companion from Twilight Princess. If you make it through all 40 levels of the Cave of Shadows with 20 hearts, it will write to the amiibo. In BOTW wolf link companion can have 3-20 hearts depending on how far you progressed in the twilight princess (or 20 if you download the bin and write it to a tag)

    The RF522 headers - the pins you connect to - won't be included by all sellers, and some sellers might include headers separately so you can have vertical or right-angle headers.

    Don't be afraid, though! This is what's called "through-hole" soldering - it's really easy to do with even a $9 soldering iron. https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-guide-excellent-soldering/tools has a nice tutorial. The only thing you'll need to watch out for is burning the plastic part that holds the header pins in place if you apply too much heat, but that won't do any permanent damage.

    Ah, thank you. The last ntag I wrote today was the wolf link from twilight princess, unfortunately I believe I made a mistake in my editing, and it failed. I've ordered a bunch of ntag's so I will have one soon.

    Hi guys,

    Just wanted to point out that now there is a companion script for the https://games.kel.mn/en/create-amiibo-clones-with-arduino/ manual.
    You can find all the info here: https://games.kel.mn/en/companion-script-to-simplify-amiibo-cloning-with-arduino/

    UPDATE
    Now there is a web page where you can do all the thing automatically
    https://games.kel.mn/amiibo/

    UPDATE 2
    The online tool had an issue. If user uploaded a file with some special symbols in it's name the script converted the file incorrectly. It has been already fixed.

    UPDATE 3

    The online tool has been updated! It now displays the output in a popup window, which is more convenient and takes less time. There is also the "Copy to Clipboard" button to make it even easier!

    Please let me know if you have any trouble with this tool.

    Cheers!

    Lol thank a lot, wish I would have had this yesterday! Looks awesome, should make this process a breeze and minimize bad ntags. I'm still looking formward to the software, the GUI will be nice to have, and I'm curious exactly what the firmware for the arduino is going to look like.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Could you maybe give us a link to the ntag 215 keyfobs?

    I ordered from here

    https://www.aliexpress.com/wholesal...1236&SearchText=ntag215+key&blanktest=0&tc=af

    depends on the quantity you want.

    Here's an idea of what I did. I use 1 inch Avery round labels.
