    I'm confused... which means your question isn't stupid. First of all, WHO is shouting this? I've been modding Android since 2009 and I've never heard of a preloader.

    I'm talking the Android watch flash.I joined a google+ community.They consider the preloader just like something very important,if you mess it up,it would brick your watch.

    I think you mean to say "boot loader"? Now that would make sense.

    Boot loader is the original OS the watch has (a real easy explanation). Some can be unlocked and some can not.......................same as phones. There is a misconception between carrier unlocking and boot loader unlocking. Always has been. All carrier unlocking is, is just that.....................unlocks your phone to use a similar carrier as in T-Mobile and AT&T (GSM), but not Verizon or Sprint (CDMA). Boot loader unlocking is far more dangerous for the uninformed person. That can lead to hacking issues if you do not know what your doing! IMHO you should leave the watch alone and go with what it does without messing with things! Just MHO:)
