    Where can you buy the Wii mini from?

    I forgot
    Transplanting a hacked NAND and such, while definitely interesting and a feat of it's own, doesn't really count as actually exploiting the console itself. I see no reason why he should be mentioned in this article in the first place as this is a full exploit that requires no hard modding or "tricks".

    On topic, that's neat. Shame the Wii Mini is (IMO) useless compared to just buying a used Wii, but this will be nice for those 10 people that have them lol.

    Foez worked hard on trying to hack the Wii Mini, even though he didn't achieve anything in the end, I think he deserves some credit for his efforts (even if they were not much).

    The reason for him "harassing" the staff is because Chary basically lied to him.

    I don't know most of the specifics here but the whole "she changed her last read to N/A" is a lie in itself. Chary's privacy settings have been set to always display N/A for read date for at least since I joined mag staff. The fact of it is, Chary is a busy person. She misses messages, even ones between friends. It's no excuse for harassment and abuse, end of.

    Then why did she keep ignoring messages until the very last message he sent where she immediately responded?

    Too bad there's only one usb port, which limits what you can do with this.

    hmmm, pretty much everywhere you can find used consoles?

    Strictly speaking it does, but not that much for the average audience (you know what that means) ;)

    Okay. I totally expected Foez to open his yap because he went full psycho. But this is just lol-worthy.

    Dude contacted me asking if he could have a front page post about his Wii mini adventures. I said it sounded interesting and he could send me a little summary of what he did so I could understand what the topic was. E3 came up mere days later, so I was already had my hands full and was on a plane to LA. Ended up not doing the post because I needed to cover E3, and was far too busy to read any PMs. I have no idea what he’s on about with the N/A thing. I never changed any settings lol. Could just be the inanity talking.

    I took a week off to relax after E3, and he ended up contacting me with a frothing furious message about how I’d ruined his only chance of talking to his kids by not talking about the Wii Mini. ??? I owned up to saying I messed up by not posting it, but he already went full psychopath. No way was I going to go back and cover it after he’d gone nutso with screaming and name calling. Then a few random months later he sends like, 4 full drunken wacko ramblings about how much he wishes I would die in another hurricane. Yeah no. That kind of unstable psychotic reaction is disgusting behavior. Cutesy Wii mini soddering tricks or no.

    of course the same day i watch a video about the wii mini, an exploit is made big news.
    what a weird coincidence.

    for the people that own a wii mini, if there even are any, this is great.

    I wonder if the wii mini can be hacked "sometime later" to allow both GameCube discs and backups?

    Wow what a sad person, I hope some day he can realize that his actions are not appropriate and that it's not okay to take your frustration out on people like that.

    Anyways on topic, this is great news. I wonder if this bluetooth exploit is relevant for any other devices, can't wait to see what comes.

    Weird... Some folks here were so adamant that nothing could be done.

    I don't own one, but it's nice to know that something is possible.
