    i'm thinking about finally leaving preloader .29 but i don't really see any point to it.i have bootmii as boot2 and ios that is one of the reasons i don't know if i should get priiloader.
    does anyone here have priiloader and bootmii as boot2.

    is it really worth swithch to priloader.
    i'm only asking because i can't decide. i'v been thinking about it for a week now.

    Unless there's some hack that you specifically need Priiloader for there's no reason to get it in your situation.

    well priiloader can boot up homebrew programs at start up.

    always a plus.

    You can have both Priiloader and BootMii as Boot 2 on the Wii.

    Priiloader has more functions as it is an update from Preloader.

    If I were you, I'd pass on it unless you want to launch a homebrew DOL at startup, or need some of its other options. But, it's your choice. If you need/want it, you can use it.

    Startpatch can do your hacks.

    Also, if you install it, be sure you use the latest official version (0.4, a.k.a r78). There's an unofficial r89 floating around that causes system menu colors to get messed up. I've seen 2 topics on here recently about the issue.

    Bootmii can also run a channel at startup.

    I don't see any need for you to update if you don't need any of the hacks they will give.

    I still have Starfall on one of my wiis - it blocks updates and skips the health screen, which is all I need.

    Bug fixes are always a good reason to upgrade.

    Priiloader is smart because you can run things like wad managers or something so if you accidentally deleted your system menu you can simply reinstall it.

    No, because you can boot HBC from Priiloader (HBC IOS - 61 or 60).

    Really? I deleted my SM IOS (IOS70) by accident before and I got Priiloader to boot by holding reset and installing it back via DOP-Mii.

    check the edit, you may have Priiloader setup to use a different IOS but i think that will only allow the SM to use a different IOS and not Priiloader it self

    Yep, except there are none in the apps mentioned.
