^That can be found in a thread here. The poster right after yours allowed the disc rental to install that update and may be a factor as to why it works for him.
If you were using say NeoGamma and it reports IOS249 Rev 14 down in the lower right corner, that would be an indicator of a successful mod. Black screen is a sign of not doing the mod successfully. If you're talking about Step 3 on the Any Wii 3.1 to 4.1 softmod, if you pay careful attention to the screen it'd give you errors if done incorrectly.
As to Preloader, it enables brick protection for the most common things (enable bypass disc update so you don't accidentally install an update from an out of region disc). It can make games region free, bypass the health warning, etc and select whether to boot to HBC directly upon power up, the system menu, or preloader itself. If you were only able to install Preloader as an IOS as opposed to boot2, it's very important to do that or be absolutely careful in what you do (like refuse any disc updates, etc).

So I have a couple more questions then.
1. is there a good place to find the various ios to download? If I wanted to find the latest IOS53-64-v4113 is there a place to find them all?
2. It sounds like preloader is a good install sooooo Are there things I can do to prevent bricking when installing that? I have a usb drive working nicely so I'd hate to ruin things now. I think your reply has a typo, you said "If you were only able to install Preloader as an IOS as opposed to boot2, it's very important to do that or be absolutely careful in what you do (like refuse any disc updates, etc)."
I don't think you meant to say preloader as an ios, right? or does that mean I possibly already have the preloader installed? I went through the sticky on the soft mod, but stopped at the preloader step because I wasn't clear on the steps at that point and everything was working so nicely.
Thanks in advance,
OK, so I figured a bunch of things out that may prove useful for other noobs like myself.
First, I found that my earlier posts about TSM being in practice mode only is wrong. The other games have to be unlocked by playing the story before they are accessible in quick play.
I managed to install priiloader and get it working, I ran into an issue where the installed hacks function of priiloader wasn't working. The issue was due to the hacks.ini file requiring a blank line at the end of the file. I read this from another post somewhere here on wiihacks. So now I'm not as concerned about bricks.
I also found that all of the ios and menu's can be downloaded using the NUS downloader. I was wondering where everyone was getting those ios from.
I also found that some games require dol loading during startup and that the alt dols are extracted from the existing iso you are trying to play using wiiscrubber.
I am not trying to take credit for anything, just lots of this is starting to make sense after navigating all of the posts contained on this site. Lots and lots of good info, just spread all over.
Thanks to the developers/admins/mods/contributing members
I ran into the same problem this morning. I wasn't quite fully awake and when I went to play TSM with my kids, I accidentally launched the game w/ back-up launcher. Quickplay mode worked fine, no problems, but when I tried to play story mode I got the 002 error. I thought that was kind of strange to get that error in the middle of a game because obviously I had the right IOS to launch the game in the first place. So I went to the Wiihacks IOS-Games-Use-To-Run list and found that I needed IOS53-64-v4113. So, I tried to open the game using SoftChip, found that I did indeed have the correct IOS, tried to launch the game using that and got the 002 error right away. Then it dawned on me to try Neogamma, which I did, and everything works fine.
