    Hello,

    I am using a USB loader to run Wii Fit Plus and when I try to install the Wii Fit Plus channel it resets the Wii.

    Is there a way to manually install the Wii Fit Plus channel from the ISO or even a third party tool?

    Thanks.

    Open the ISO with WiiScruber or Trucha Signer, rip the WAD off and install it using WAD Manager

    If your disc is broke and only have it on the USB.

    You do realize you can't load the Wii Fit Plus via the Channel anyways.

    So it's useless to you, otherwise, open the ISO with Trucha Singer/Wii Scrubber and extract the Channel WAD yes.

    The channel WAD, once installed, doesn't work right for me. How can I go about tracking down which IOS it is trying to load with?

    Except that that requires me to go to the TV, open the cabinet, find and locate the usb hard drive, turn on my USB hard drive by the itty bitty switch on the enclosure, then start the wii and launch that channel to do a quick body test. The channel lets me do a quick body test then turn off the wii.

    Just to be clear since multiple people seem to think I am talking about something else: I am not talking about loading the game from a channel.

    What I am asking about is the Wii Fit Plus mini-channel that the game allows you to install so you can quickly and easily check your weight everyday without having to load the entire game.

    I will try extracting the wad and installing it, hopefully that will work.

    Yes, they know that, I think they're just confused since you could do that via a USB Loader channel anyway, and that the channel wouldn't be able to load the WiiFit Plus game disc from USB or something anyway.

    Hm, interesting someone mentioned modifying this channel to load from USB. I tried to make a modified version that USB loads, but has the special banner (shows stats and such).

    * My first attempt: I built a working USB wad, then replaced 00000000.app with the one from the official channel. Result: Brick after install

    * My 2nd attempt: Tried injecting the Loader DOL from the working USB wad into the official channel. Result: Installs fine, but code dumps when run [​IMG]

    Klinikal: You say it's easily done. How would you do this, seeing I failed? I was shocked when #2 didn't want to work. As for #1, not quite sure why the banner bricked...

    Agreed, a bathroom scale would be a lot simpler and he wouldn't have to stand in front of the TV and since he complained that "walking over to the TV cabinet was too much effort" he could avoid walking into the room at all. But then again maybe WiiFit isn't for him since things are "too much effort."

    The wads you see are likely in the UPDATE partition. The update BTW is system 3.4...

    The channel is in the "INSTALLER" partition (It's Partition #2 on the disc in WiiScrubber, #1 is UPDATE, #3 is the actual game). The filename is "HealthNANDPackUp.wad"

    Once you have the wad how do you edit it so it will load Wii Fit Plus from your hard drive/memory stick?
