    This is an exploit that allows you to hack your Wii and Wii Mini with just a Linux computer and a Bluetooth adapter.
    Instructions and downloads are available here: https://github.com/Fullmetal5/bluebomb
    There will be a writeup once I get more time but in the meantime you can use this to hack your Wii Mini.
    Normal Wii System Menu support will be added in a bit. You can also add support for whatever app/game you want to use if you read the "How do I create an app-specific stage0?" instructions on the Github repo.

    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?

    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?
