    No you dont need to root. You just need to download the app Wiimote Controller. Of course, you need an emulator and roms to play, and make sure in the settings for the emulator you enable the wiimote.

    I thought it didn't work with phones running the Sense UI.

    Something about the bluetooth stacks not updated or something?

    You DO need Root, as you need to run a different ROM to be able to connect the Wiimote.

    It connects via Bluetooth, which HTC set up the 'stack' differently in SenseUI.

    The only way to use Wiimote with an Evo is to run Cyangenonmod6, he wrote his own Bluetooth 'stack' which works with the Wiimote.

    You also have to have the free app from the market.

    I just got done using my Wiimote+Classic Controller to play some Medal of Honor: Underground on my Evo. Pretty sick

    Ok thanks. I'm afraid of rooting though since I don't want to void my warranty with sprint but I also have insurance with best buy but I don't know if rooting would void my Insurance with them.
