This application emulates an AmiiboLink (AmiLoop or omllbolink) device.

These devices are generic espruino boards sell on different forms, normally are Keychains drop shaped, but also there are some Puck or Sheika Slate shaped.

Almost all have a button and some LEDs as indicators and runs from CR2032 cell batteries or lipo cells.

All of them are controlled from phone applications via Bluetooth, also you can upload one or several .BIN amiibo files using the phone to the device.

AmiiboLink Compatible Applications

So far the only two AmiiboLink/AmiLoop mode manager phone Apps are translated to English, they are “Umiibo” and “AmiLoop” this applications are compatible only with the AmiLoop Mode.

Other oddity is what the modes on applications do not correspond with the modes set up on the device.

Card Emulator

This application can be used to emulate Mifare cards and NTAG series cards.

Mifare cards are commonly used for access control cards, and the device can fully emulate Mifare types of cards. Supported Mifare card types include:

  • Mifare Mini
  • Mifare 1K
  • Mifare 2K
  • Mifare 4K

NTAG series cards are commonly used for device identification. Supported NTAG card types include:

  • NTAG 213
  • NTAG 215
  • NTAG 216

Currently, a total of 8 cards are supported, with the option for customizing the number of cards in the future.

Note:
The emulation function of the NTAG series is still in testing, and the functionality is not yet complete. It does not fully emulate > the features of NTAG125.
Further improvements to this part of the functionality will continue.

Emulation can only be activated in this interface, and it will be deactivated if you leave this interface.

After disk formatting or the first entry into the card emulator, data will be initialized. This process may take a few seconds, so please be patient.

Card Emulation

The interface of the card emulation page is as follows:

[01] de:ad:be:ef
< Slot 01 >
MF 1K <08/04 00> 

The interface is explained as follows:

  • The first line: 01 is the card number, and de:ad:be:ef is the card ID.
  • The second line: Slot 01 is the name of the current card, which can be freely set.
  • The third line: MF 1K displays the card type. The type abbreviations are shown in the table below. 08 is the card’s SAK, 04 00 is the card’s ATQA. The last symbol indicates the writing mode. If it is marked as a disk, writing is allowed; otherwise, writing is not allowed. Abbreviations for card types:

00.bin is the file for the first card slot, 01.bin is the file for the second card slot, and so on.

Due to firmware size limitations, currently only around 1000 Chinese characters can be displayed properly. If Chinese characters are not displayed, please raise an issue with the characters you need to display. Specific characters can be added in the next version.

Card Data

In this interface, you can perform the import and export of card data.

 Load..
 Save..
 Factory..

The import and export files are stored in the /chameleon/dump/ folder.
If you need to import data, you need to write the data file you want to import to the above folder through the webpage in advance.

  • Load: Pressing the middle button allows you to enter the load interface. The interface will read all files under /chameleon/dump/, and pressing the middle button can perform the import.
  • Save: Pressing the middle button allows you to export the current card to the /chameleon/dump/ folder.

The file size loaded must be exactly the same as the current card type to be imported. The data file size for different cards refers to the table in the Card Emulation.

Advanced

This interface displays different content based on MiFare series cards and NTAG series cards.

Special Note:
This interface is the advanced settings for card emulation, and it is not recommended for ordinary users to modify. If you intend to make changes, please make sure you understand what you are doing before modifying!
If modifying this part leads to card emulation failure, try restoring default settings first.
