    You just rerun the installer, and select the remove option.

    But, WHY do you want to remove it ??

    This gives some level of brick protection, and has some useful hacks ??

    fyi, an official update should also remove priiloader (unless you are already on 4.2)

    and unless u are trying to virginize your wii, u should leave priiloader installed

    and if u are trying to virginize your wii, an official update is easier than to uninstall priiloader and all the other softmods u may have installed

    If I remember correctly 0.29 didn't have an uninstall option, so what you should do is update preloader to the latest version of priiloader and then run the installer again and use the remove option.

    1) The Priiloader Installer.dol can also uninstall Priiloader AND Preloader (as far as I know).
    2) You can also reinstall your current Systemmenu with DOP-Mii. But that is a bit more dangerous, do that on your own risk.

    Because if it fails, you brick...and don't say it knows what its doing. I have had it freeze installing SMs and cause said brick. Not fun if you don't have bootmii.
