    Preloader is long since discontinued, Priiloader is the continuation of the project by a new coder DacoTaco. The installation of either is a dangerous time and it can brick your wii if it messes up or you unplug your wii or something. It is useful to load up before the system menu for a few reasons one is brick protection from bad wad installs or removing the system menu ios, another is to load system menu hacks on the fly.

    Let me just start by saying that Priiloader is an unofficial update to Preloader. And since Preloader's no longer supported, it's no longer an option. Just use Priiloader.

    Priiloader allows hacks/patches to be applied to the system menu, along with an extra layer of brick protection (which shouldn't be used alone since it protects from only certain kinds of bricks). It also allows control of boot settings, and a few other useful features.

    The only possible chance of brick is if you screw up the (relatively simple) installation, or if you screw up something that Priiloader doesn't protect from. But the latter can be prevented by using BootMii as boot2.

    Preloader/Priiloader installs extremely fast, i don't think iv'e herd of a case where someone tries to stress that such a great installable/gainful program has bricked their wii. I'm pretty sure most people on this board have preloader/priiloader, starpatch or the like. Or if better, Bootmii boot2 + preloader blahblah.

    [EDIT] Need to fix my keyboard, a coffee drop and a bath wash has borked my ooooooo's lol. I have to keep re-editing my post, perhaps i should double check first! [​IMG]

    Priiloader is the continuation of preloader.

    It has added features, bug fixes and more options. [​IMG]

    Both overwrite the system menu, so there is brick potential. However, it is minimal and only occurs during the installation for a split second.


    After that, both offer full protection against banner bricks!

    It can region free everything and prevent your wii from UPGRADING!

    Also, you can set your wii to automatically boot into the HBC, bootmii (IOS) or your favorite USB loader.


    Therefore, it is GOOD! [​IMG]

    With the preventing of enabling the no update, would it still let you proceed if you did a connection test then asked to perform update, would it actually do the update, or give an error? Or is it just for disk updates?

    Grr my ooo's!

    With online updating you stil get a ask prompt, but if you click on yes, you get an error that it can't reach system files.

    And correct me if i'am wrong, but for the disk updates it skips just the part of checking for update's on the disk.

    You don't need Priiloader for hacks in Sneek. Just add them in SMenu.c

    Priiloader 0.4 runs fine on (S)(U)neek (hacks maybe buggy)
