Softmodded Wii in an unique NES Casemod --w/ boot2
Up for grabs is the ever-so-customized "Wiitendo".
I call it that because it's like the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES 1985) and the Nintendo Wii had a baby.
This is a casemod for the Nintendo Wii that I have put together with lots of extra parts, hard work, soldering, hot glueing and general ingenuity.
Here is a run down of the casemod:
The DVD drive replaces where you would have put the cartridge (no blowing to make games work required).
The power button on the NES works the Wii's Power.
The Reset button works the DVD Eject.
The NES Controller ports on the front have been swapped out for Gamecube controller ports.
The back panel has been replaced so now has power plug and RCA ports for component / composite video and audio and a toggle to switch between the two.
Still has an internal fan through NES vents.

What you get:
The Customized Wiitendo Console (With Homebrew, that should mean something to you!)
-- hookups: power brick. 6' component and composite cables. 1 homemade wireless sensor bar.
One 4GB internal SD card (just FTP into the Wiitendo to manage the SD Card).
Quite a number of Purchased Virtual Console Games from Nintendo
I can also bundle in:
Four Controllers and Four Nunchucks
Two Racing Wheels for driving games

My apologies, I didn't want it where any joe shmoe could view it, so I put it on youtube as "private", but I guess what I really wanted was "unlisted"... Here are some pix, too...

Cool mod, couple of potential issues being accidentally ejecting with the lid down, and not being able to load via USB HDD as both slots are used.
I always like to see these.
You are correct, sir. Though I typically play with the lid up, so I haven't had any issues, I can see some concern there.

When I first put this together (about a year+ ago) usb 0 on this guy didn't like working for data but gives power, and loading from usb 1 wasn't an option, so I settled for running the fan and LED from usb. I didn't mind too much because this is an ealier model wii with an older drive, so dvd's and backups both worth great. Someone a hair more ambitious than me could probably pull together a working solution.
