Steps to Make Amiibo Card With iPhone
Below are the steps to making your own Amiibo card using an iPhone.
- Secure an NFC Tag. In order to create Amiibo Cards, you’re going to need an NFC NTAG215 tag or sticker. Note that this is the only version that works. Any other version is more than likely not going to work.
- Make sure that your iPhone is NFC-compatible before doing anything. To check this, go to your phone’s Settings menu. Tap on Control Center. Here, you can check the option for NFC Tag Reader. Your device supports NFC if the option is available to you. If you cannot see the option, then your phone does not have support for NFC. This means you can’t use this feature and won’t be able to write Amiibo cards.
- Download Amiiboss. Amiiboss is an application that you can download on the app store. This will allow you to use bin, key files, and the NFC tag or sticker.
- Download Key File. You can try searching “amiibo bin 2022,” and the results will show you sites where you can download amiibo bin files. Look for and download this file: key_retail.bin. You can also follow this link to go a to google drive, which hosts a collection of amiibo bin files: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/1TCEmF5alHGCbg5gSk4qRLmJYHIzgYUJH?sort=13&direction=a
You can also find the key_retail.bin file in this drive.
- Download the .bin files of the game characters you will need. When making your Amiibo Card, you’ll be using .bin files in order to produce fake cards. You can search for them or download them from the same drive you found the key file.
- Import file. Now that you have all of the files, you need to open the Amiiboss app and click on “IMPORT KEYFILE.” Select the key_retail.bin file you just downloaded, and a pop-up window will show once you’ve successfully imported the key file. Press the “DISMISS” button.
- Your Amiibo app will now show it is “READY TO WRITE.” Press the “Write” button on the bottom panel.
- It will show “NO PACKAGES FOUND.” Choose “Add Package,” and you can now upload the .bin file of your chosen character.
- After choosing the .bin file of your chosen character, a pop-up window with a message from the Amiiboss app creator may appear. Just press on DISMISS. It will now show you the information for your chosen amiibo character. You can then press the “WRITE” button at the bottom. A pop-up window indicating “WRITING TAG” will appear.
- Afterward, all you have to do is hold your iPhone near an NFC NTAG215 tag or sticker. The progress bar for “WRITING TAG” will turn blue, and a checkmark and “Sucess” indicator will show up once you’ve successfully written the tag.
- Upon finishing the process, the app should tell you that you are now a proud owner of an amiibo of your chosen character. Press the “DISMISS” button. The NFC tag or sticker should contain the same details the original Amiibo had. You can now test on your game device if your NFC tag or sticker works like an original Amiibo would.
