    Ok so here's the story. I installed preloader and saw that it came with lots of options (like starfall, but more). However, I did not want to touch them yet because I had starfall hacks on. When I went to starfall to remove those hacks, it gave me an error -101 and then said exiting. I can only assume this was preloader's work. Before I had jumped to conclusions, I used ios downgrader & cios downgrader but it still didn't work. So now what I want to know is how to uninstall preloader for now, to use starfall. I read that you can use any region changer for this, but how? Please help. Thanks.

    For as far as I'm aware preloader can be uninstalled by re-installing the system menu.. which you already did with cios downgrader. So preloader should be gone already. Only it's hacks and settings should be still in the nand but I dont think those conflict with the starfall hacks. Anyway, you can remove those by running the hack remover that's posted in one of the preloader topics. You should try that.

    You might wanna be careful telling people to install 290.... his flag icon says he's in the US, which means if he installs 290, he'll have a bricked Wii...

    US = 289

    UK = 290

    should I delete the current system menu file with any title deleter first?

    NO. It shouldn't let you do that anyways, but still. If you did somehow manage to delete the system menu, you'd most likely end up with a paperweight of a Wii.
    Just INSTALL the appropriate .wad and the current sysmenu files will be overwritten.

    Though cIOS_Downgrader should've accomplished the same thing no problem...

    Can anyone confirm this? What does preloader rename the 'hacked' system menu to?

    Is there any software available to delete it?
