    I don't think Firefox works with that amount of RAM (64 mb I think)

    Can someone give a run down of what this will actually allow the general user to do? What linux applications that are worth having will be capable of running on the Wii using this?

    I apologize ahead of time as I am less than a Linux novice, and thanks for any details you can post!

    Can't find root device mmcblk0p2.... What did I do wrong? I'm booting from mini....

    Scratch that. I'm being a dork. I had it on the wrong SD card (not partitioned for Linux)

    I'm glad to see that people are actually taking advantage of bootmii's lower level code.

    Perhaps there will be a version of Gentoo created for the Wii, much like there is for the Xbox 1. (Well, Xbox360 too, but it's extremely annoying to get running.)

    Make sure you're trying to get wifi under mini not IOS

    Extra features of MIKE p3 when running under mini (vs IOS)

    * EHCI (USB 2.0) is supported
    * Increased I/O bandwidth for SDHC, USB 1.x and USB 2.0
    * Additional 11 MB of RAM are available
    * Internal WLAN is supported
