    Not true. It won't brick you, but it also won't remove the latest HBC.

    as long as u don't have a region changed wii, updating via ninty is safe

    an official ninty update will virginize your wii except for the following (if applicable/installed):

    -darkcorp (aka cioscorp)
    -cIOS202,222,223,224 v5 (v4 will be virginized/stubbed during update)
    -cIOS250
    -if bootmii is installed as boot2, and the boot2 version is already at the latest rev (boot2v4), then bootmii will NOT be removed when doing an official ninty update
    -if u have a fakesigned cIOS36v3351, it will not be updated to the official non-fakesigned version
    -if u have a patched IOS70, it will not be updated to the official non-fakesigned version
    -new "JODI" Homebrew Channel v1.06

    if some of the above apply to u and u want to virginize the above items, before updating u will need to run the darkcorp un-installer, delete IOS202,222,223,224,250, launch the hackmii installer and uninstall the homebrew channel and bootmii as boot2 (not recommended), install a non-fakesigned IOS36 and IOS70 using wad manager (any non-stubbed non-fakesigned IOS can be used to install any non-fakesigned IOS)
