    Right now I am on 3.2 and have Starfall installed. What are the differences between Starfall and Preloader? Should I be using one over the other?

    Thanks.

    If you want the simple hacks like disc update blocking,... you can use starfall
    If you wanna go a bit more advanced, you can go for preloader.
    Preloader has as a bonus that it can be loaded even if you bricked (in most cases) and you can choose the hacks you want. On top of that it has some cool extra functions (like autobooting a certain app).
    Also, preloader works on 4.0 and starfall doesn't.
    If you want to use preloader, I advise uninstalling starfalls hacks first

    Thanks for the info. Yeah my main concern was what is better of the two as far as bricking. It sounds like perloader might be a little more solid.

    What is the safest way to remove starfall?

    There is absolutely no reason why you have to choose one or the other. Starfall and preloader play nice with each other just fine on 3.2 and each offer slightly different ends to the same means (though preloader has a few extras as well as an additional negative of slightly longer start times when you turn your wii on)
