    Just wondering, is the firmware too new perhaps?

    I don't think its due to firmware, I think you can't hack it because there are no USB/SD ports

    It doesn't have SD card slot. It is not possible to hack a Wii without SD card.

    There is no Wi-Fi board (no Internet). No component output (480p) support. Only 1 USB port. It is a "very" strip down Wii.

    A hack will need to be written to read hackmii from a usb without needing SD files to initiate the hack. An exploit that allowes this would have to be a HUGE oversight by the big N (like the rest of thier security). hard modding (compatible Drive Chip [doubtful] or solder an sd card [no garantees]) is almost certenly required.
