4.2U Wii (Soft-Modded) preloader question.
I've got a Wii that's upgraded to 4.2U. I have Homebrew Channel and several other minor mods. Lately, i've been reading stuff about "Boot into WiiFlow using Preloader" and i even went to a YouTube place that gives the instructions.
My question, if i put in Preloader .29 or .30 now, will it brick my Wii?
I used the guide to soft modding (on here) to get the Homebrew Channel and installed a few CIOS(s) and i need to know if i can load it cleanly or am i going to have to go through an 18 step mod to get it working?
I've read SO many opinions about this particular subject i don't know WHO to believe? I need to know from someone who's BEEN there, done it, and can tell me "Yeah, i've done it and here's how".
I know there ARE other links out there relative to my but relative often leads to mis-information and damage. I would rather someone have a more closely similar situation rather than send me to a link that could be the wrong firmware.
I can provide what's been done but i've added a lot of WADs and DOL apps so it would have to be the most important facts.

Can Preloader (or Priiloader I think they are changing the name to) brick your wii during the install. Yes it can but is unlikely. As system menu mods go this is definitively one of the safer ones. The points of interest for you will be restoring the trucha bug using Trucha Bug Restorer or DOP-IOS. I used TBR for my install of preloader. And the patched IOS70 file. I used the file from the 4.2 guide under tutorials section with out and issue.
If you cannot use bootmii as a boot2 then I would recommend Preloader. If you have bootmii as a boot2 then I would just use startpatch to get the hacks installed. The only reason I use Preloader is for the slight brick protection. Damn bootmii as an IOS!
**Sorry for any spelling or grammar mistakes I did not catch. Coffee was brewing at time of post**
uhh priiloader is a hole different app and iso70 i have cios24g and 202 also 36 patced *soz bad english*
