How hard is it to actually brick a touch pro?

Seriously, how many people have really killed their phones? I am of course not TRYING to do it, but with all I have done to my phone I am beginning to think its impossible.. When learning to cook sometimes you flash one and it doesn't boot and gets stuck at the red lettering, but bootloader mode is always ready to rescue me... so I am just wondering who here as actually bricked their phone and how did they do it? I am sure you'd remember what did it...

I've never bricked mine.

I think it's pretty rare that someone bricks it to the point that they need a new one.

Re: How hard is it to actually brick a touch pro?

i think more often what happens is someone just screws it up enough that they give up on it. ive never done anything that couldnt be fixed with a reflash, whether it be usb or SD. afterall, this is all software we are dealing with. I cant imagine its possible 99% of the time to brick it without messing with the hardware.

I think a lot of people throw that term around pretty loosely too.

even if you flash a gsm rom on a cdma phone, you cant brick it.

Re: How hard is it to actually brick a touch pro?

OK, I'm just curious how far I can go when editing SYS files, mixing up sys/xip from different builds, porting rom and xip's etc before I should start to be careful and worry that I might actually make a real brick..

Re: How hard is it to actually brick a touch pro?

i don't know that it's possible to do a software brick on these devices. i think the only way to brick is to have a hardware failure as well as a software failure. otherwise the bootloader jumps in before any software is booted so you can always reflash.

erbegu, you'd find better help in the gsm section of this forum but to quickly help, you need to reflash to a gsm rom, not just reset the phone.
