I wanna get the Homebrew Channel, but I heard that getting it on 4.3 bricks the Wii?
I never downloaded the Homebrew channel but I want to get it but my cousin told me that if you download it on 4.3, it bricks your Wii because they haven't made a version of BootMii compatible with 4.3? I don't even know what Bootmii does but that's what he told me.
Is this true? Would it be safe to download the Homebrew channel? Also if it is safe, is it safe to download BootMii?

It won't brick your Wii. It is also safe to download and install them. Follow a guide called "4.3 softmod guide" for more info.
Gotta follow a softmod guide to even get the hackmii installer to run. Might want to look in our recommended guides section.
Just Check out The 4.3 SoftMod Guide on this website There you will find that you can softmod both of those and it is required that you fallow the guide to the letter and you will won't brick just did mine today

The two post above are right on the money. Tell you what... You go here to the intro section and make a post to say hello and I will link you all kinkds of good information to get you started.
Make sure after you soft-mod the Wii you remove any stubbed IOS if you ever plan to downgrade to 4.2 or 4.1, there are horror stories in the bricked forum from people trying to downgrade 4.3 to 4.1.
