    I just see that wiki.gbatemp.net shows that NTSC-U console could run Wii Fit without problem.

    I tried to search on foreign forum (in hong kong), and people mention that their NTSC-U console have the duplicate channel problem but could play the game successfully.

    I am wondering if there would be any duplicate channels, because I am planning to ask my friend to buy the game for me from Japan.

    They also said that wii fit have same kind of protection that SMG use.

    Why not wait and buy it? You need the balance board anyway.

    Just used WiiFit yesterday to unbrick one of my Japanese motherboards [​IMG]. Can't help on the dupe channels thing though (just know I used a WiiKey @ 1.9g and one semi-bricked Wii motherboard with a donor drive from my original PAL wii).

    On the wii region patcher compatibility list, I am reading that Metroid Prime 3: Corruption (NTSC-U) works after update using wii fit, no problem with brickblocker 1.3, no black screen on Jap Wii. Can anyone confirm this. Can't find answer on any forum.

    i did the stupidest thing, first updated my PAL wii to USA firmware with Mario Galaxy then updated with Wii Fit to Jap firmware and then back to Pal firmware with Mario Galaxy. My Wii remains semi-bricked, can't access the Wii settings. I also bought a Jap Wii Fit package with the balance board and tried to play it on my machine. Even the board doesn't sync with my machine. I bought it as a present for my other half. The only reassurance is that the console still play games. Any advice with fixing this problem will be much appreciated. Also I have got another (2+2) 4 additional news and weather channels.
