    Wow, it’s weird seeing the Wii Mini finally get what it deserves.

    You can run Linux in a VM and passthrough an adapter if you have a usb bluetooth adapter, but no this won't work natively on Windows or Mac probably ever.

    Never is a strong statement, it's not like there's anything about the exploit that couldn't be ported to Windows or macOS. Just because the author has no interest in porting it doesn't mean nobody else will.

    Windows doesn't allow you to disable the Microsoft Bluetooth stack to take complete control over the packets being sent out. It is highly unlikely, if not impossible, that this will ever work on Windows.

    Hacking the Wii-Mini, the PS Vita, most Apple junk products, this just reinforces my statement that everything is hackable.

    And now, finally I can do something more usefull with that Wii-Mini stored somewhere near here... where is it?!?!?!

    Great news!!!

    @Fullmetal5 : My respect to you, excellent achievement!!!

    So this enables going online for the Wii Mini, but, is there still anything Wiis can do with the internet besides browsing broken webpages that aren't designed for browsers from 2007?

    Play online games like Mario Kart Wii using unofficial servers like Wiimmfi

    Too bad Wii Mini is only capable of composite video. A neat hack.. just not worth going out of your way.

    Nintendo really gave hackers a good workout with the Wii Mini. I'm honestly amazed it survived this long. Nice work!
    I personally don't own a Wii Mini, but it's always nice to see an exploit be released for a console that didn't have one.

    I assume this can be done with a Raspberry Pi 3/4 too?
