    It's safe as long as you know, what you are doing.

    That will in no way virginise your Wii (safe updater). All it will do is leave the cIOSes unstubbed and boot2 as is.

    Doesn't cIOSCORP have an uninstaller now?

    As long as you do what the guide says, it should be perfectly safe

    you're welcome. so you know about that guide then. it is safe as long as you know how to follow instructions correctly and most specially you know what you are doing.

    Reinstall your system Menu: Install wads of IOS70 and System Menu 4.2E obtained through NUS Downloader in that order

    If there's another way of removing patches, feel free to enlighten me

    Actually it just says to run startpatch and disable the hacks
    But I don't know if thats even needed since the guide re-installs the system menu and uses Nandclean

    i re-read your tut at CSG. it says to run startpatch to disable the hacks. you could do this to remove the hacks but installing the system menu uninstalls all hacks. kinda redundant in a way but no harm done.
