    so i was thinking, what are the possiblities or the things we can do once MINI is released with all the USB drivers in place such as OCHI and Bluetooth.

    What will be the difference from using Nintendo's IOS compared to one made from scratch?

    Does this mean better Linux supprt, or better Emulator support? Maybe even something like XBox Media center?

    how far can we really take this?

    Yeah I'm really curious what the future will bring now. A true custom firmware should now be possible I guess

    Great topic, i was wondering this aswell....
    For instance, XBMC, WIFI (on full 54Mbit) or a better n64 emu?

    would like to hear some devs point of view about this matter.

    The Wii has yet to unleash it's true potential. Complete control over the SysMenu, a Wii Media Center, etc.

    Who knows?

    The problem is not WHAT we can do, but HOW we'll do it. We already know that using BootMii, we've got full power over the Wii. Now, the apps need to be coded.

    well from looking at the buglist a bunch of task have been added to basically get bluetooth (for WiiRemote) and USB up and running for keyboards and so on...

    Once this is done then i guess the Wii is truly ours... I don't understand Starlet enough to know the situation with it [​IMG]

    but i guess if a whole new system menu was created from scratch would games actually still be able to play, what abotu back up's? what happens to all those IOS?

    i beleive meulators should get better as they would have full control of the ARM processor and also be able to fully access the graphic card so i think thats a defo...

    a media center is something the Wii is crying for, this channel idea of the wii never did it for me and doesn't allow much in my opinion, but imagine being able to access your media drive and stream stuff to your wii and have it appear on your telly, now that would be something...

    infact i wonder if www.reactos.org could be ported to the Wii,lol...

    Well, like Team Twiizers said, only the Sky is the Limit [​IMG]. I think they mentioned that:

    -A better DVD-Player will come, based on BootMii,
    -WiiLinux will also come,
    -And a cSSM would also be possible

    I'm realy hoping that a nice Media Center will come up, like (or better, a full port) of XBMC, with DVD, and much more...along with a great WiiLinux and a cSSM...that would also be nice [​IMG] ...like always, let's wait and see what happens...[​IMG]. I'm also very curious, and I'm shure that some great things will come up...the whole thing is very exciting [​IMG].

    with direct access to the cpu, and all the hardware, MINI sould break us from dependence to nintendo's environment. one of the good things about this is we will no longer be dependent on cioses that provide a different way of controlling I/O to hardware. this ofcorse is good for the wii homebrew developers. not much so for people who develop ISO loaders and such.

    Yep. I live by 2 golden rules:

    1. "Zombies, Run!!"
    2. "Dont update when prompted by the manufacturer"

    Im sure TT said that nintendo blocking it or trying to overwrite would be pretty hard but not impossible to do and could break legit Wii's so i can't see them blocking it anytime soon myself...
