DS/Wii Online Connection Still Functioning Thanks to Homegrown Server

While Nintendo has cut official Wi-Fi connection servers completely offline for DS and Wii consoles, they should have known that advocates of the service have been working to make a different connection for their devices. (Nintendo DS, Wii)

Reminds me of when Xbox live for OG xbox was shut down and people kept games/servers of Crimson Skies open for like 2 weeks after it shut off.

Man I miss that game.

The Japanese can close our servers but we will rise again!

That's pretty cool. Didn't know that could be done without Nintendos permission.

The DS and Wii are both hacked devices - using this custom server structure requires the ability run homebrew software.
