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.
Run the script:
./Arduino_amiibo_tool.bash "key name" "dump name" "blank tag UID"
./Arduino_amiibo_tool.bash key_retail.bin ChibiRobo.bin 044C4F2AE33E81
It will instantly output the resulting dump in a convenient, ready-to-use format:
Now just copy the output and paste it into the
Write_Amiibo sketch. That’s it!
