Wii Mini finally gets hacked with Bluebomb & updates for NX Shell, Atmosphere Updater and GZDoom released for the Switch!


I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :)Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.

      What is your end goal? What do you even get out of this? Are you ok? I’m genuinely concerned for your wellbeing at this point.

    Finally a Wii Mini exploit, i always loved the look of the console. Can’t wait to hunt one for cheap.

    This just shows how people don’t give up on things. That system was left for dead and well past its days for hacking. Many had given up on it and moved on. But not FullMetal5. why did he do this? My guess is to overcome the challenge and prove everyone wrong to have the Wii Mini added to the hacked console list. Awesome Job FullMetal5!

      Honestly I’m not sure why he bothered. Just how much demand was there for this anyways? A hacked backwards compatible Wii will always be able to do more than a Wii Mini, and that’s probably why people either gave up on the Mini or didn’t bother with it in the first place. I’m not convinced that it was super hard to hack, if anything it was probably hard to find the motivation to do it.

      But sure, kudos to the hacker and all. Maybe he’ll move on to the Switch or PS4, or heck maybe even the Vita.

    A Wii mini for $50? I got my Wii (With GC support) for $30 a few weeks back… Why would anyone get a Wii mini that costs more than that with fewer features?

    The Wii Mini cheaper? Cricky! My ex just bought a full Wii original, with sensor bar, A/C cord and AV cables with remote for less than $13. No sense at all to buy a WiiMini if the originals are far superior hardware wise and cheaper as well from trade lots, pawn shops, and yard sales…
