Update May 1, 2017

Thanks to this script, now there is an online tool available, where you can prepare your dumps no matter what OS you use.

The manual dump editing, described in the initial article, is quite a long and boring process. Moreover, if you’re not careful enough, any mistake can lead to a wasted tag.

In order to change this the redditor ShoGinn made a script which greatly simplifies the process.

Here’s what you need to make it work:

  • PC with Linux OS. A Linux virtual machine will work too!
  • ShoGinn’s script
  • Linux version of amiitool
  • Key used for amiibo decryption and encryption. If you followed the original article, you may already have it somewhere. Otherwise just find it in Google.
  • Amiibo dump in bin format

Put the script, amiitool, the key and the dump into same directory.

Files in folder

Run the script:

./Arduino_amiibo_tool.bash "key name" "dump name" "blank tag UID"

For example:

./Arduino_amiibo_tool.bash key_retail.bin ChibiRobo.bin 044C4F2AE33E81

It will instantly output the resulting dump in a convenient, ready-to-use format:

Script output

Now just copy the output and paste it into the Write_Amiibo sketch. That’s it!
