    Yes, you just move your cursor to the bottom and hit exit.

    Thanks for the quick response, that's good to know I was worried I might have had to say goodbye to the miis.

    Hey all. I just have some questions about making a portable Wii.
    1. How big is a trimmed Wii motherboard? Can someone provide dimensions?
    2. Can I possibly use a PS Vita housing or something like this (taken apart), since I don't have a 3D printer to make a case of my own?
    3. If I can use a Vita housing, will the original screen work with the Wii? Or do I need a different one?

    Sorry, I've never done anything like this and I'm trying to plan it all out.
    Thanks. :)

    1 around 3"x4" or 105x75mm (not exact but close)
    2 you would need a spacer (if the wii even fits in the case to begin with)
    3 no, you need a different one. Check the BOM for suggestions

    If I use a Wii U gamepad shell, would that work better?
    Also, what is a spacer? Something to keep the motherboard from touching the shell? Sorry, noob here.
    Edit: is it possible to use the Wii U gamepad's screen? Or do I have to buy a different one from the link you posted? Sorry for all the questions.

    The Wii U gamepad shell is around as hard because it is very thin. A spacer is just a plastic bit that goes around the outside to make the entire casing thicker so you have more room inside.
    No, you can't use a gamepad screen either, neither of those displays have driver boards (which you need to connect them to the console)

    Okay. I already ordered a Wii U gamepad and I'll probably see about making a spacer. I'll just buy a new display then.
    Also, sorry again for bothering you, but do you have any tutorials on how to wire in a headphone jack? Or maybe someone's worklog that is indepth?
