Hello everyone, I'm new on this awesome forum and after a month of research and walking into BitBuilt I start this thread for share my first portable console the O-WII !
The goal is to make the simplest to build and the most low cost portable WII.
1 - the choice of custom power supply :
Im a novice at soldering: soldered laptop hard drive connectors on motherboards, replaced LEDs in TVs, and capacitors in PCs. I just know the basics.
I have never had luck finding a good soldering iron for precision soldering.
I recently moved to Japan and thought I would try to...
I've recently been inspired to try and make a Wii portable, however, all my knowledge is software side and I have no idea where to even begin to make a portable. I have been told that I need a lot of practice to make one, but I am not sure what "practice" entails. If anyone could show me how to...
I am currently planning on building my first Wii portable with a MB trim.
After hours of research in the forums I began to make a list of parts to buy. I don't want to waste money by buying parts that won't work toghether, therefore I wanted to ask a couple questions before buying...
I have been looking for many screens that fit the 5v ratio for my portable Wii, but....
The screen I have in mind fits the 480p resolution, but the voltage is always 12v
None of them at at least 4inches!
Also, I read about using RasberryPi screens. So I won't use them.
Or is there a way to...
I'm starting to make a portable Wii.
I've installed "PortableizeMii" on my Wii and all that.
Now before I do anything else, I want to make an order on eBay and other sites for the parts that I need. (Because of the long shipping time). I don't know what it takes to make one, so I don't know all...
My plan is to make a Wii portable in a small Toshiba portable DVD player chassis I have.
Since the original screen was 480x234, the composite input on it looked like trash, and I had to upgrade.
I ordered a new LCD yesterday. It's the same size (9") but is 800x480 instead, and has a VGA input...
After digging up some money I am finally shopping for parts for my wii portable. Lately, I've been looking for displays for the portable and this one was recommended to me earlier for a portable gamecube. While the display looks great spec wise, one thing is problematic: the voltage input...
There are way too many things I could say but there is no point in kindling the fire even more. Quite the interesting display on my page. There’s unnecessary attacks toward me, my family, and my school for wanting to vote for me in the contest. I’m not sorry for the people that love me. There’s...
So I'm trying my hand a portable wii. Heres the goal list:
Thinner than the original wii
Tablet form factor (with a stand)
No disk drive (USB Games)
Sensor Bar compatibility w/ original wiimote
All 4 gamecube ports and 1 Gamecube card slot
Large, loud stereo speakers
I have no clue what I'm doing...
Things I'm going to try to have in the portable:
5" Screen (With a touch panel that acts as the Wiimote pointer)
4 18650 Lithium-ion batteries
buttons from a ds lite and other controllers
3D Printed case
Charge & Play
IR leds and GC...
Update: The Swiitch 2.0 is now completed!

Hi, this will be the worklog for my second Wii portable. I really want to make this one without hot glue. It will (probably) feature:
A 5" (touch)screen
New 3DS sliders and buttons
Custom lipo's, around 5500mah
I am completely inexperienced working with batteries and making them, I want to be as cheap as possible with my Wii Portable build, and have a relatively small battery pack. If someone who knows more about this could help me out, It'd be very appreciated.
What I need to know:
What's the most...
