All wii updates have been safe, and do not affect modchips, due to the modchip being on the DVD drive, and not the motherboard. If you update your wii past 4.1 though, the ability to play games from other regions is lost.

Also a chance of bricking your wii if you don't do it properly? hardmod you can't reverse when things go wrong and you need to claim warranty, however it will still work even with system update and if done correctly, there is a very small chance of bricking.* Direct boot of different NTSC region Wii Games / Backups on US and JAP Consoles * Partial Support for NTSC Region Wii Games / Backups on PAL Consoles * Enables direct boot of Game Cube backups.* Supports all currently available Wii Console / Drive Versions.
