    Is it safe if I just have the HBC installed,because I just want to use some emulators and not any of these system menu modifying tools.
    so do i need preloader and bootmii?

    You don't need them, but Bootmii is recommended always

    and if you plan on playing any backups ever, you should really install preloader so that you don't brick your wii (or some one playing it) by accidentally updating from a game...

    why would anyone not at least use bootmii, homebrew emus or not dont u want a nand backup in case something happens? homerbrew chan can run many apps that culd brick you, even if u think its an emu, some a-hole might make a sysmenu deleter .dol or something. i trust no one, so I use preloader and bootmii. whats worse, a 10 second install, or saying, "DAMn i wish i had bootmii"

    there is no 'need'. but if you can install bootmii as boot2 you might as well just in case.

    you can always install it and set it to be almost fully transparent. then if you ever need it itll be there

    You "NEED" it, if you install or delete something that causes a brick.
    It's like an insurance - better you don't need it, but it's nice to have.
