    Which Safe Updater?

    WAD method will only install the System Menu and it's IOS. It won't patch or install anything else, so you will keep your cIOS, cIOSCORP, Bootmii, etc

    One major thing to note about xzxero's update is that it doesn't upgrade boot2, so you can always downgrade to 3.3 or below. Aside from that, tattar8 is right. It doesn't overwrite the cIOSes or put in the other anti-piracy stubs. I believe it does update your IOSes though.

    If by safe updater you mean this: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=184057

    And by xzxero's guide, you mean this: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=171901

    Then xzxero's is just a manual install/update. Like already mentioned, you won't loose Bootmii, cIOSes or softmods (preloader/CIOSCORP).

    However, if you use the safe updater, you will be doing an official update through Nintendo but you won't loose Bootmii or cIOSes. In both cases boot2 will be left alone but you will loose any softmods.

    So, guide = more involved but saves preloader/CIOSCORP.
    SU = easier but looses preloader/CIOSCORP.

    Depends on what you need/want.
