Yes I did modify the wiimote slightly:) take out the IR filter and remove camera from the wiimote. Of course it requires complete disassembly of camera.
I use my own software as I do not use Bluetooth to communicate with camera. However if one only remove the filter it is possible to work with any other software. My aim was to use this sensor in stand-alone devices without the PC, this is the reason why I am not interested in going through communication via unknown (at least not documented) bluetooth stack.
