    If you mean download the updated channels from the shop, yes its safe. If the shop asks for a Wii System Update, use WiiSCU to update the shop.

    Nintendo doesn't and mustn't sniff and delete stuff from your Wii without your consent. By updating the whole system through the update function of the System Menu, you have to explicitly give such consent. When updating a single channel from the Shop Channel, you don't give such consent, and it would be illegal for Nintendo (at least in some jurisdictions) to remove content or disable any functionality that way. Furthermore, I think the Wii Shop Channel is simply not able to detect and/or delete unauthorized contents.

    Gosh, you've got the perfect answer above, what do you want more? Yes, it's safe, for the last time!

    If you are so afraid, then I would think about to leave the Hacking-Scene. Live with the risks, or leave it.
