    Just making it official now, it took me days to find a name for this project (Thanks @JacksonS for taking the name WiiSP, without even building a clam-shell :P)..

    Planned Specs:
    - Wii: LM420
    - Controller: GC+ (Thanks @Aurelio & @BocuD )
    - DS Slider, Speakers & Buttons
    - Display: 5" 4:3 Composite
    - Case: Fully custom 3D printed Clam-Shell
    - Batteries: 3000 ~ 5000mAh
    - Smartchargeboard
    - ... a lot of other cool stuff i tend to forget about!

    I don't have much to show right now, but this is the first "quick" sketch of the case..
    wiid_case_bottom.png
    wiid_case_faceplate.png

    ATM it's about 105x130mm (minimum for the planned display)
    But as i can't test-print it yet, the design is likely to change a lot! I actually planing to rework it completely to give it some more rounding & stuff.

    I don't even have a wii for it now, but I just felt like starting a new worklog anyways :awesome:

    Uhh.. that's the essence, yea! Well, I've found some pretty decent hinges, originally for an Asus eee pc:

    Think they'll do the job. Don't know how to design around them exactly yet, but we'll see :)

    Also another wii arrived today & I lamo'ed it in about 6 hours as you can see here:

    Don't know if it will be the one for this project, since i might cut it a little bigger - lol...

    It actually came with a pretty nice game in it's dvd-drive!

    ... which i've burned right after starting it... burned the DS to ashes, too!
    ... I just can't play CrystalClear with a clear conscience anymore...
    ... on a device ever run such bullshit:

    ....

    Oh and btw: This is the only temperature I'm soldering this project with! :D

    Anyone who said the SSWiiT thread was the best thread on BitBuilt just became a liar

    Besides, this was my first NAND-bend, that didn't work on the first try ;-) A really frustrating experience :D
    Removed it completely & soldered it back in - now it's working..

    The more interesting part about this board of cause is the AVE relocation, that i already did on the omega. I cut the pcb a little smaller this time. Btw. this are 16 data wires plus: gnd, 1.8v, 3.3v, composite & 2x audio.

    DSCF6645.JPG

    This relocation took me about 4 hours (without unsoldering & trimming the AVE-PCB), but luckily it was working right away :mrgreen:

    DSCF6634.JPG
    Played some "Madworld" to check if AV-Chip is working .. Black, white & red colors are definitely fine! lol

    Let's just hope everything survives trimming >.<

    Glad to see this one's working correctly, were you able to pinpoint the exact issue from before?

    not really.. i basically just made it worse :D removed the whole nand again, rewired it - but it's not working ATM... Oh.. And a day after removing the nand out of all the epoxy, i found out that the NAND was working fine in the first place... it was just a faulty/cheap usb-stick - :D RIP

    But I learned a lot through the omega & all the LMAOs i did, everything looks much better now :)

    It takes a few tries. The one in my portable is the 3rd OMEGA I did. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    The cabinet is made by my father, the Subwoofer (10" Transmission-line that goes all the way doooown to 20Hz :D) is build in combination with him.

    My front boxes (not in picture) are also self-build - I love Music & this soundsystem supplies the Reggae/Dub-Vibes I need for this project ;-)

    Yea, I can only recommend it! It's the best bass I've ever heard in Hifi! Screw this little bass-relex shit.
    A TML plays so clean and soft even on low volumes & easily kicks your ass, if you want too (or you feed it with a DTS line) :D

    //Edit:
    Just randomly found a pic of the internals (I know you all like nudes!)

    //Edit 2:
    Anyways, BTT!

    I present to you: The OMGWTFLMAOMEGA-Trim... or LM420

    Honestly 2018 is already a good year! Some of the most clean stuff I've seen come from talented individuals thus far! I will be watching for updates. Great progress so far.

    @Dominic Wake what are your thoughts?

    What the heck? Either your thumb is hyper flexible or mine is a chodey weird accident. How does it bend like that?

    P.S holy crap on a cracker. That's a hell of a trim, made me feel like I was watching DIY S.O.S again. Where are the reaction videos? :Pigmas:
