    And how are you supposed to use an exploit?

    Until it comes out, I don't think it's fair to say that there is no internet connection. No wifi does not mean no internet.

    So no one still knows whether or not if it has USB ports I guess.
    Yeah, no WiFi doesn't mean no internet.

    That's what I wanna know. ;_;

    IIRC, there is no disc-based hacking method, right? Like burn a DVD, put it in, and hack away...

    Well, if they removed almost everything, then it'll probably be like the GC when there was no System Menu.
    No DVD, NO SD, No Internet,No Hacking, NO NOTHING.
    Yes there would have to be the IOSs to play games.
    Well, if that happens then expect System Menu 4.4U.
    It might even lack bluetooth compatibility and the remote will be wired.
    USELESS WII

    I'm pretty fucking sure it has some internal memory... What the hell happened to intelligence today?

    You can't use a disc to hack it, any home made disc will not look like a retail one and the wii would refuse it.

    Unfortunately, if it were possible to get the console keys, it would be possible to flash a pre-hacked system menu with the homebrew channel already installed.

    And yes, you think you have to be so epic to post the definition of a "joke" when it's not evident that DinoScene is joking.

    Cool.
    First impression : so technically it COULD connect to the Internet but I'm sure it doesn't even come with a shop channel so that would only help you for, say, online multiplayer stuff.

    Second impression : still no SD card means it's pretty much unhackable ... but wait ... it's not THAT much smaller than the original Wii and the plugs are pretty much in the same place on the back. It probably has the same motherboard which would mean the same drive connector and you could still fit this thing with a WODE ... or just solder and SD reader on it ... or even GameCube ports.

    (Of course, this is just speculation but Ninty did it with the no-GC Wiis so it seems safe to say they'd do the same thing here. Redesigning the mother board for a limited edition thing like this probably wouldn't have been worth the money if it wasn't before for the Wii they kept selling for the last couple years.)

    It uses a K9F4G08U0D NAND Chip. Tried using a Wii clip to dump it but that thing is too big of a POS, actual soldering should get results, but I am not sure if it's worth the effort since I've read that the NAND is useless because of encryption.

    I think there are ways to get the keys for the encryption but I'm not sure how to do that without hacking it.

    I also fucked up image posting, new image added, as you can see by comparing with

    A wifi module could be added, whether or not it would work depends on the software. The system version said it ran 4.3U.

    Hmm, yeah. It took my untrained eye a moment to recognize it but it DOES look like there's a WiFi location stenciled in there next to the Bluetooth board. I wonder why they designed it in there but didn't end up including it.

    Also, don't know where to look for the drive adapter on the old board. You know if it's the same size?

    Do we know if this thing will somehow use the single USB port to backup/restore saves? If so, Indiana Pwns (and others) can be used.

    There is no way for it to get online as it has no internet settings.

    Same, now pointless Wii menu with 3 options (disc, Mii, tutorial)

    Standard AV output only, no component support.

    Actually not much smaller, just weighs less.

    So, the staggering list of negatives continues. Not worth it all at 100$.
