    I uninstalled HBC, bootmii, dvdx, and i used anytitle deleter to remove cios 249. Is it safe to update my wii now?

    I would just ad that there is always a risk when updating your firmware, even using Ninty's official method. For example, Ninty's method for updating boot2 is apparently more brick prone than the method used by DOP-MII/Bushing.

    I gotta ask why you want to update, and why you want to update using Ninty's method?

    Personally I always found updating the Wii using utilities like Anytitle Deleter, DOP-MII, WAD-Installer and NUSD a better way to go as you have more control over what gets updated and when. Though doing so does take a little more effort and care. Lot's of pre-reading is a must if you are new to the scene.

    Well I did make a nand backup a while ago, but I uninstalled bootmii. Should I "virginize" my wii but keep my bootmii at startup?
