Preloader is an application which places itself before the System Menu. Its main feature is to directly boot the Homebrew Channel or a file you can install from a FAT device. Preloader is also able to apply memory patches to the system menu to remove limitations or other things.
 
Since Preloader places itself before the System Menu any problems that would cause
the System Menu to fail are not causing your whole Wii to stop working.
{{Modifies NAND}}If autoboot is enabled and you want to access Preloader's menu simply hold RESETwhile powering the Wii on.

== What is Preloader and what the hell does it do? ==
Preloader is a small application which places itself before the System Menu. Its main feature is to directly boot the Homebrew Channel or a file you can install from a FAT device. Preloader is also able to apply memory patches the system menu to remove limitations
or other things.
 
Since Preloader places itself before the System Menu any problems that would cause
the System Menu to fail are not causing your whole Wii to stop working.
 
If autoboot is enabled and you want to access Preloader's menu simply hold RESET
while powering the Wii on.
