    i have buyed a wii mini years ago and then i see what i buyed a wii without internet or hax

    i bring it back next day naturaly without the wiimote included



    here in germany we can buy a normal used wii for 20 euros thats so cheap that i think hacking the wii mini is a waste of time or buying it .
    or anyone here get a wii mini cheaper then 20 euros?

    alone the lanadapter cost more....


    a waste of bluetoothenergy

    It doesn't have a public release yet. So I cannot give the source code since i'm a lazy dummy bamboozle-head weeaboo.

    The Chad Hackers DESTROY the Fortress of "Security" the Virgin Nintendo tried to instill into the Wii Mini with CRAFTINESS, BLUETOOTH, FACTS, LOGIC, and COMMON SENSE!

    That would be amazing a few years ago, the Wii Mini in 2014 was extremely cheap (only $ 99 and still came with the Wii Remote Plus and Mario Kart Wii, here in Brazil it was cheaper to buy the Wii Mini than these two things yet. more because at that time the dollar was not that expensive here).

    Still, it's good to see that now all versions of Wii are hackable.

    I totally adore the look of the Wii Mini, but the lack of internet access, and lack of hacks for it was what kept me from buying one.

    But even though one of those barriers is (almost) gone, I'm already pretty invested in my regular 'ol white Wii, so I can't see myself picking one up and modding it unless it just sorta.. falls into my lap.

    Maybe you can make the Wii Mini compatible with the Wii Lan Adapter and install the Wii Ware/Virtual Console games on it now?

    I sort of miss the old iPhone jailbreak tool names, like "RedSn0w", "Greenpois0n", "Limera1n".. Maybe something along those lines?

    Hey, "BlueS3a" has a nice ring to it. I feel like "DeepBlue" could work, too.

    DeepBlue sounds alot better, I think it matches well since the exploit is related to Bluetooth. And the exploit... I dunno, is it like deep in the roots of the Wii Mini?

    If it all works out great then the Wii Mini could become the preferred way to play Wii Games.

    Right here on good ol' planet Earth!
    This. Is. AWESOME! I knew it could happen eventually, if someone worked on it hard enough. Interesting that it's a Bluetooth hack; this exploit probably would work with all Wiis perhaps even the Wii U.

    There was a new word in his message I didn't know the meaning of. He kept repeating it in almost every sentence. Looked the word up. Now I wish I didn't.

    I'm sorry you had to receive such a message.

    I guess there is light at the end of the tunnel. I'm impressed, it's nothing short of amazing how they managed to pull this off.
    Good thing those dusty abandoned Wii minis serve a purpose on the homebrew side of things.

    Hah, that's a good one!

    inb4 someone crosses the line with those jokes and gets a warning.

    BlueS3A sounds better since it is associated with the fact bluehax has Bluetooth capabilities, Broadcom had nothing to do with this at all.

    Hack the thing and make it portable. It has the potential to become a massive toy for enthusiasts.

    The Wii Mini looks great, and now has has a boost in popularity because of the hack and portabilization potential.

    I'd get one just for it.

    My question now is, can it be modded to give out component or RGB scart video signals? One of the systems biggest flaws.
