Preloader

Installing Preloader v0.29 is a smart choice. When we speak about the Nintendo Wii bricking and how these instructions must be followed exactly to the TEE, this is one of those times you must be very careful. Before  installing Preloader you must know it is optional. What Preloader does is it boots before the Nintendo System Menu, when the Wii is bricked and will not load Preloader will still allow The Homebrew Channel to load(99.9% of the time). After HBC is loaded the Nintendo Wii Backup(thatwas created with Bootmii) can then be applied to restore the Nintendo to it’s original out-of-the-box factory condition(or at least close to it).

With this said, my personal opinion is that if you intend to upload a ton of junk and different Homebrew software to the Wii it’s probably a good idea to install it. If the modifications end with this tutorial then it is likely Preloader will not need to be installed.
