What works

The overall program.

Communication with brick using WiFi.

What does not

Sometimes, the application refuses to launch fully, leaving a white window.  Using Wine Staging seems to fix it, though.

Communication with brick via USB.  (Bug 39962) (Wifi works though)

Communication with brick via Bluetooth.  (Bug 40009) (Wifi works though)

Firmware updates (needs USB communication)

Additional Comments

The lobby animations no longer seem to glitch. I use the Edimax EW-7811UN WiFi Adapter (needs firmware version 1.08 or higher). Since firmware updates need USB, you will need to use a Micro$oft Window$ computer or virtual machine to update the firmware.
