Finally!!! Im playing SNES on my Evo with my Wii Remote and snes gamepad
Well my 20 bucks goes to buying Cyanogen a beer and the author of wiimote free.
Its possible now, It will take probably close to 2 hours to do everything if this is your first time, not to mention downloading the files from the free hosting sites take forever even on a 20mb connection.
Heres what I did..
Follow this guide STEP BY STEP Until you reach the Install Custom Kernel ( you can skip that)
Rooting the HTC Evo 4g – Part 1 (Installing the adb shell)
Once you have Clockwork running fine, then head to here:
Cyanogenmod Nightly Build [check link for newest version] 11:44pm updated 7/19/10 - xda-developers
I did everything last night, now I have froyo and everything works but 4g ( waa! waa! My town wont get it for years anyways)
Its fun, its fast, sense sucks compared to this.. The wii remote works with all my game emulator apps.
Im happy today =)

I dont have 4g or an HDMI cord so if you dont use those then go for it.
Worse comes to worse you can flash back to your old rom in 5 minutes.
The 2 hours part is rooting the damn thing the proper way and trial and error.
If you already can hotswap roms with a recovery manager then its a 5 min fix

Do not root your phone yet. The new build has countless minor errors such as non deletable voicemail notifications, occasional app crashes etc. It really is an alpha not even a beta. Wait for the proper beta or at least the full version before flashing to cyanogen. I am using baked snacks and it is much better than the alpha cyanogen. Just my 2 cents.

Man you suck, lol , JK, I'm not rooting my phone. It has its benefits but I rather deal with what ever OS comes from Sprint and HTC. I really hope someone comes out with something for the sense UI for gamepads. I just think playing street fighter on snes only works well with a gamepad.

The one Cyanogen compiled has full Bluetooth HID support. ( which is what you need to connect to a wii remote, or any NORMAL bluetooth keyboard/mouse)
Any stock rom or anything with Sense UI even attached to it will not work.
So far all the other custom roms out there that are sense based will not work This includes all the ones in our sticky, the ones on XDA, Baked Goods, Etc.. As far as I know.. None support HID BT profiles ( YET)
Even stock froyo wont work.
So far Cyanogen is the only one that works for this, and its why I chose to use his teams roms for now. Unless someone else can do that now.. I havent heard anything.. As of this week they are the 1st to get HID profiles working on a 2.2 rom that also allows a fully working front/back camera.

I use the wii remote itself for NES games, and the classic controller with all the extra buttons for genesis, snes, and soon PSX
I also use the z1 and z2 buttons for Save state and load state.. Comes in handy if you are playing action games and easy way to cheat if you save right before a hard part
