    Its even safe to update with the HBC installed
    So if you remove it it will be even safer (but a lot harder getting it on the wii again)

    o right i see the only thing i remember installing on my wii was the homebrew channel and the backup lancher dont think i installed any wads only the wad manager boot and custom wad manager just i red around the forums about needing a wad remover but other than that all i have to do just delete the channel then theres no chance of him bricking it.

    Whoa DeJaVu, i thought i've seen this topic somewhere

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=142491

    Rather than deleting HBC, why don't you just hide it on the very far channel space? like move it to the right right right right. i don't think he will fnd it.
    just incase in the future you/he want to use HBC again,

    yes, he can play it freely
    he will not get banned
