    Hello,
    I would like to use hacked amiibos without nfc tags.
    I was told that we could do this with a rooted smartphone.
    Thank you

    Someone pulled it off using an old version of Cyanogen (excuse spelling) but I dont remember any releases.

    I knew what OP meant. I didn't know what @badpix11 meant. But yea... you can't do it without tags.

    If you knew what he ment, why did you give info on writing tags. The OP wants to be able to use an Android phone to act as a tag so they dont have to buy tags (even tho they are very cheap)

    Just buy the tags. I was able to get 50 of them for like $10 on Aliexpress, even had free shipping. Only took like 2 weeks to get here as well.

    Or PowerSaves for Amiibo with a PowerTag.
    It's cheap and the tags are rewritable, but they don't last very long. A pack of 10 extra PowerTags doesn't cost too much though.

    3x PowerTags: £9.99 (Codejunkies Price)
    10x NTAG215 Tags: £1.95 (AliExpress Price)

    hmm :/

    AliExpress doesnt appear to be English, so an Amazon price for 10 tags is 4.99.

    Also, Powersaves is £17 on its own so that adds to the total.

    I think you can get a 10-pack of PowerTags for 20 bucks or so, same price as the device itself.
    To some that might be better than 100 NTAG215s which is what I got, since they're reusable. But eh it's not really any cheaper.
    Rewriting the Powertags with a phone might be possible, then you wouldn't need the reader.
