Food for thought: What will this mean to Bootmii, which runs in GC mode?
BootMii runs in GC Mode? Didn't know it calls on the mIOS... If it doesn't run on the miOS, all good, users should be able to use the console keys to navigate. If it does, then yeah, problems I assume but I think people can re-install it. Provided the Wii is running 4.3 or lower and if Nintendo doesn't have some checks in place. A lot of IF's right now but we'll see when it's out. I think they just simply removed the mIOS on the console.
This may be a dumb question, but this probably means modchips that use a gamecube config . iso like Wode and Wiikey Fusion won't work anymore, right?

Perhaps, perhaps not. We will need to wait and see.

I suppose this Wii will have a special system menu version just for it
I don't expect it should impact hacking too much seeing as I doubt too many of these models are going to sell at the end of the consoles lifetime and there are a kajillion GC-compatible Wii's out there to buy :P
That actually looks like a fun thing to tear into. I wonder if they just removed GCN ports from the mobo and deleted mios, and maybe a model specific SM. If this is the case, it'd be fun to solder in some ports and reinstall the Mios and BC. Heck, revert it and case swap it. It would be pointless nonetheless.
EDIT: Heck, maybe I'll buy one of these just to tear into it and see what it is. Then I'll return it when I've found out. LOL. -- The Wii U seems really fun to hack.
