With the blessing of Bobby Dilley and RedOne, the creators of the OpenJVS (Pi) Hat, The Brewing Academy is proud to offer them for sale!  Both of them are compensated for each sale, but let's be VERY CLEAR: They are not providing support for them.  If you have difficulties with them, you should contact us at TBA.  If there is a problem we cannot answer, then we will reach out to them when necessary.

As a side note, Chunksin,  the creator of WiPi loader for Naomi, Chihiro, and Triforce has given us permission to give you a link to the folder for WiPi.  OpenJVS PiHat works *wonderfully* with WiPi!  hunksin across most forums anyway - you can use the direct folder link if you like:
