    I bet that there will be an update from Nintendo to address this much like there has been 2 offcial framware updates for Vita even though it is a dead system here in the western world.

    Since the console can't use Internet, the only way for Nintendo to update it would be to release a game disk that does it. But both the Wii and DS network died un 2014 so why would they bother?

    Well, once the exploit is public an Internet IOS install and GC support will be available for it hopefully.

    I had no clue that it has gone offline altogether hahaa. Perhaps this will be the only hack that wont ever get a patch if thats the case then?

    Nintendo should hang it up now. There's no way to come back from this. Everyone in the 'just dance' and ''penguins of madagascar' discord servers is relishing about not needing to buy the new games next year so i doubt Nintendo will be able to keep their doors open. Congrats hackers and all you end users who like to "not be locked out of a device that Iiiiii paid for, blah blah"

    Native GCN support on the mini is a hardware issue, not software. MIOS and all the rest of it are there, but the drive rejects GCN discs and the ports and memory card slots aren't soldered to the board. Getting Nintendont to work (since it does literally the exact opposite of backwards compatibility in providing a compatibility layer to make GameCube games forwards compatible with the Wii) would just be a matter of installing a custom channel (the Homebrew Channel) with AHBPROT disabled - the mini already uses IOS 58 (Unless I'm so wrong that I may as well burn my power user hat), has a USB port, and Bluetooth support.

    The Internet IOS would be better off modded to prevent it from crashing if no USB Ethernet adapter or internal Wi-Fi radio is detected - Nintendo being too lazy to do that is why the mini has no Internet at all out of the box. Ironic, because that's the only thing I can think of as to why it would have a USB port at all. The only games that use it are either online-only, store DLC there, or attach a Wii Speak, itself online-only.

    @Ryccardo You have all the answers right? Let's be practical how many money and time would require to add the GC ports, RGB or Component output and hypothetically speaking an online adapter? IT would be less expensive and faster to buy a first generation Wii don't you think so?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Your_Shape

    "Your Shape", a game released by Ubisoft in 2009. It included a USB 2.0 camera, hence the need for a USB port on the Wii Mini. (And, interestingly enough, this is the only retail title I know of that actually uses IOS58.)

    The USB port is also used for USB microphones in various music games.

    "Free" since "everyone already owns a regular Wii" for parts :P , about 30 minutes to half a day depending on SMD working skills
    Sure, but where's the fun in that?

    That's the thing not everyone know how to install mods so how much money those people have to expend to get it installed? I understand what you're talking about, i want the next year to take a course in electronics to install mods but from a gamer perspective is not worth it considering the alternative.

    But kinda useless since the normal Wii is cheaper and easier to find.
