    I own a Smash Bros Inkling amiibo, and I would like a data backup of its Smash Bros A.I before Splatoon 2 resets it.

    Now I found the N2elite Android app, but while it manages to scan and recognise the amiibo (including its type), it fails to unlock it so that I can make a backup. It just comes up with "Amiibo found but problem with reading" and "Failed to unlock tag!".
    Could anyone shed some light on possible causes? Or is anyone else familiar with this issue?

    Works fine up to this point

    The error messages do not hint at any possible solutions

    To make a backup you use the "dump" function however. The N2 app will not put the dump back onto the physical amiibo. If you want to do that you're going to need to do some sleuthing for an app called Tagmo and some files that are not allowed to be shared

    Also unlocking is for the N2Elite device as it can be locked to one amiibo or unlocked to use the 200 slots included for the amiibo dumps.

    Thanks, got Tagmo now. Also looked into the N2Elite device, which seems to more widely cover my need
