    Just make sure as it says that you install ios70patched.wad before you install priiloader. Otherwise yes it's safe to install at any time.

    As for wherever you read that bootmii as boot2 was unsafe, that information was wrong. Bootmii as boot2 is the absolute best safety net in case of a full brick. Priiloader ranks below it, typically useful in semi-bricked consoles.

    It's in the first pack of messie's 4.2 guide and probably included in a pack with shadowsonic2's guide.

    As Ithian posted, sorry for the reiteration, but bootmii as boot2 is the ultimate protection for your Wii. If anything goes wrong, it can pretty much be fixed if you are lucky enough to be able to install bootmii as boot2. Still, having Priiloader as well won't interfere with bootmii and is rather helpful with some of it's System Menu Hacks
    4.1E - Priiloader 0.3b - bootmii as IOS - cIOS 38 r15 - Triiforce MRC v.7 - MPlayer CE v.0.76 - Configurable USB Loader v.48 - WiiFlow v1.1 - SanDisk 2GB SD - 320GB Vertabim HDD
    Please remember to hit if I've been of any assistance to you.
