N64 in a Wii Case

Categories: Funny, Wii Console Hack.

It has been sold but you would be able to duplicate the results of this mod with a bit of effort. I wouldn’t recommend you do this to make a profit though since the mod sold on Ebay for only $157.50.

“This is a Nintendo 64 in a Wii case, very different, but it was done, and in all works! it is a Wii case that has been modified to fit a n64 inside, and function perfectly well! There is a power on switch that was a xbox 360 left trigger, that was modified to be a switch! there is no reset button, but that is not even needed anyways.”

Wii Dual NAND Flash Hack

Categories: Video, Wii Console Hack.

This hack lets you witch between a few NAND Flash chips which would let you select how you want to boot.

Video after the jump.

“He’s found some extra chips (see below) that are the same as the ones inside a Wii — he then desoldered his System-Menu 3.1U Wii’s flash chip from the Wii, and cloned it onto the two extra chips using an Infectus chip and amoxiflash. This way, if anything goes wrong, he can always desolder this hack from his Wii and go back to the normal one.”

Wii Sensor Bar made from an Old TV Remote Control

Categories: Wii Console Hack.

Stacy sent in a cool mod that was done to an ordinary TV remote control that converts it into a Wii sensor bar. Great way to camouflage a sensor bar!

“Dad and I were trying to build a Wireless Sensor Bar and managed to do one that is all wires and batteries. Then He Started digging through all of his remotes around the house and found a couple that didn’t work on anything. so we set off to work on a “Version 2″ so to speak. We took one of the remotes and cut off part of the Circuit board and then drilled holes in the side for the IR LED’s and used the battery box already on the remote and made a sensor bar that is sort of “Incognito”.”

The “incognito” sensor bar works for all Wii games from slower paced games like All in one poker to faster and more active games like NBA live 2008.

Play DVDs on your Wii

Categories: Wii Console Hack.

Click on the links below to start watching DVD movies on your Wii. All I can say is finally!

“Usage of this package is fairly simple. Run the installer.dol found in the package, follow the onscreen instructions, and you’re done.

Once you’ve done that, you can enjoy the splendor of mplayer. That what started out as a simple proof of concept has rapidly turned into a full-featured media player, under the nourishing hands of dhewg. The main aim of the mplayer project was to get DVDVideo going, but it also supports reading video files off the SD card. (Experimental).

A patch for Wii64, the N64 emulator for the Wii, will also be available shortly. This patch will allow you to read games off a DVD.”

Wiitendo – Hack a Wii into a NES Case

Categories: Video, Wii Console Hack.

What makes a Nintendo Wii even better? A Wii that looks like the classic NES console!

Video after the jump.

“This project was a labor of love and took some hours to gut our original Nintendo so that the Wii fit nicely inside. This required lots of dremel tool action. Wired in some fun LEDs, used some Gamecube extention cables to access the ports, threw in a large Gamecube memory card, and waalah, the Wiitendo is born!”

Wii Homebrew Channel

Categories: Video, Wii Console Hack, Wii Info.

The Wii Homebrew Channel is moving full speed ahead. Looks like we have lots of great things coming in the near future.

“The Homebrew Channel is a channel for launching Wii homebrew applications without the need to run the Twilight Hack first. It will list apps stored and organised on an SD card in a nice little GUI, which you can very easily customise with descriptions and shiny little .png icons all by yourself if you want. You can also launch homebrew apps via TCP (with a correctly configured PC) or USB Gecko. Both of those built in options make it extremely convenient for testing out new code, as well as a general purpose homebrew launcher. You’ve seen the video,
now try it yourself!”
