    Snes9x RX v4.7.0 is released. Snes9x RX is a Super Nintendo™ / Super Famicom emulator for the Nintendo Wii. Snes9x RX is a fork from Snes9x GX, a port of Snes9x (http://www.snes9x.com). Snes9x RX is a "homebrew application" which means you will need a way to run unsigned code on your Nintendo Wii. The best website for getting started with Wii homebrew is WiiBrew (www.wiibrew.org).

    Snes9x GX Changelog:
    Kirby Super Star GCN performance fix.
    30+ FPS boost for this game, should make it enjoyable again on the Cube.
    Add Show Local Time option. [bladeoner/Tantric]
    Optimize USB controllers handling. [revvv]
    Only open device if VID+PID match.
    ios version up [revvv]
    GCN build fixes (thanks emukidid!)
    Revamped README.
    Create missing folders.
    In case one or more of the "\snes9xgx" folders are absent, they will be
    created on the second run of the emulator, after a settingsRX.xml has been
    generated by pressing Exit on first run.
    Experimental DualShock 3 (wired) support.
    Based on libsickaxis 1.0 by Xerpi. As of now, it controls the 2-4 players
    at the same time. Could and should be upgraded in the future to polish up

    CleanRip is a Gamecube and Wii optical disc backup tool for the Nintendo Wii.
    The "Clean" in CleanRip comes from the fact that this tool does not require nor utilize any custom IOS (cIOS). It simply requires that you have the latest Homebrew Channel (HBC) installed. Also, if it finds that IOS58 is installed, you will be able to rip discs at USB 2.0 speeds.

    Just Dance 2020 launched yesterday for the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and, remarkably, Nintendo's two-generation-old console the Wii. And it marks the last time an Ubisoft game will do so.
    In a statement to GamesIndustry.biz, Ubisoft confirmed that it was done with the Wii:
    "We would like to clarify that Just Dance 2020 will be the last Ubisoft title to release on Wii. We can't speak on behalf of other publishers or for Nintendo."

    • And they said it couldn't be done. Almost seven years after its release, @Fullmetal5 (the same developer behind str2hax and flashhax) has finally managed to find an exploit compatible with Nintendo's so-called "unhackable" Wii Mini and crack it wide open! Instead of using internet browsers or loading code from the SD card slot, both of which are (in)famously absent from the Mini, this new approach takes advantage of a vulnerability found in Broadcom's Bluetooth driver to gain arbitrary code execution and run a payload from the included USB port. This finally lets homebrew enthusiasts have fun with the console, and may also open the door to online play as well with the help of hacks and a LAN adapter!

      While the exploit is making good progress, having already reached 90% completion for the Bluetooth stager and also being consistent enough to be called usable, there's still a lot of work to be done before a public release is available. There's also the possibility of HackMii Installer being incompatible with the Mini's version of IOS, in which case further new exploits will need to be found in order to make it work. You can get an idea about the state of the project in the roadmap below, which was written and shared by the dev itself:

      Quoted from Roadmap written by @Fullmetal5 (from the Discord server):
      Just to give a small roadmap: (So that people can get an idea as to what needs to be done now)

      1. Write a bluetooth stager to upload payloads (%50 complete) (Note: this was stated to have reached 90% in later posts)
      2. Write something to load larger payloads from usb.
      3. See if the HackMii Installer's exploits work against the versions of IOS that are there (If they are similar to the Wii U's then it may already have exploits but it's possible they are different)
      4. If the HackMii Installer's exploits don't work then I will need to write my own. (Shouldn't be too bad, IOS is known to be buggy. Also I'll probably do this step anyway for the fun of it.)
      Click to expand...
      The exploit doesn't have an official name yet, but it's currently being referred to as "bluehax". Right now it's being tested on some specific games, however, there's a real possibility it will work out of the box with the Wii's System Menu alone due to its nature, thus removing the need of a dedicated game. It only takes a computer with a Bluetooth interface to make it work: there's no definitive usage guide just yet, but it should be as easy as running a program on your PC, hitting the SYNC button on the console, et voila - you're good to go! There is a small catch, however: development is targeting just Linux and no Windows version is planned. If you can get behind that, you'll soon be able to enjoy that sweet, sweet homebrew on the tiniest Wii Nintendo has ever made!
