    Nintendo Wii WODE Jukebox Web site is Live - Interesting Facts!

    We've previously covered the WODE which is set to revolutionize the Nintendo Wii modification scene.

    USB Loaders have their downfalls as they don't boast 100% compatibility and are limited to the WBFS a file system designed for the loaders.

    The WODE is a totally hardware based solution that comes with the compatibility and reliability of a modchip - something you can't get with software loaders. Anyway, the WODE Team have just launched a Web site for their upcoming modification.

    It doesn't reveal much, but the opening animation is interesting. It seems the stand for the Wii houses a port and the intro shows it using a USB hard drive or an Ethernet card. That totally got my attention.

    To quote: WODE will include a Flatmod type mainboard that attaches (solderless) to the Wii drive cable similar to other available chips.

    It also comes with it's own vertical stand that harnesses a slave board with built-in LCD, USB, and SD slot. The SD card is used to house the powerful Linux-based WODE software.

    WODE is compatible with WII DMS, D2B, D2A, D2C, D2C2, D3, D3-2 boards. The OS is LINUX and allow to manage WIFi connection and many others features, like a Mini Computer.

    Here are the specifications for the WODE:
    - Play Wii & GC game ISOs direct from USB Mass Storage devices @8X read speed (HDD and FLASH drive)
    - Complete Solder free install solution
    - Easy to use GUI - LCD & Joystick - NO homebrew software required (no any update of console SO can block this device)
    - Region hack, Update blocker, Autoboot.
    - Passthrough with FLAT-MOD mode built-in, play your DVD-R Wii & GC backups and Imports @3X read speed
    - Powerful ARM9 MCU
    - Totally Flexible Linux Kernel
    - USB hub support for multiple USB devices connection
    - Great File System support - use existing WBFS formatted media or 'drag and drop' ISOs to existing USB devices
    - NTFS
    - WBFS
    - EXT3FS
    - HPFS

    Future updates will bring more cool features:
    - Disc ripping to WBFS
    - USB WiFi & SAMBA streaming
    - Torrent & eMule download Client
