Hello there, I was wondering if I can I use the mii channel and access the wii home screen on portablizemii?
1 around 3"x4" or 105x75mm (not exact but close)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?
If I use a Wii U gamepad shell, would that work better?
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.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.
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.The Wii U gamepad shell is around as hard because it is very thin.

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)
I would make a thread on this in the Wii section providing pictures and as much info as possible.Hey I have nearly finished my first portable, its simple and just runs gamecube games for now. I thought it was finished however after being on for a few minutes the wii goes to black screen. It loads portablizemii and games however after a few minutes it always goes to a black screen .It worked perfectly for long periods of time with portablizemii before the trim. Let me know if you need any more info to help.
You'll probably have to map them yourself.Bump

I don't have a 3D printer, so using something like the gamepad shell is probably the best option for me at the moment. There isn't too much space in the gamepad, and I was wondering if a Wii can somehow be crammed into one.
