i've never bricked my prevail because I read before I act. I know that there isn't Roms for our prevails so I wouldnt try to flash one.
I used Rom Manager for about 4 months. Mostly to reboot phone & into recovery and clean the dalvik, and fix permissions but, in doing that, I have had bad experiances. Twice before I got rid of the app.
The first time I used the fix permissions option(supposedly just like CWM) and when I rebooted it factory reset my phone. Good thing I was turned on to TiBkup in shabby's mod or that would have been rough.
The second time was when I cleaned the dalvik cashe after getting rid of a few apps. again... Factory reset. At that point I realized that RM was just not friendly enough with the prevail...
Oh, just for reference...
Shabby kernel & shabbymod .9
V6supercharged, 3gturbo, & using kickasskernel
I've haven't had a problem with this using CWM since I uninstalled RM
the thing is RM and CWM work together as a unit. Now CWM can work just fine w/o RM, but RM needs CWM to do most of what it is intended to do. So again its not the apps fault. I got hroark up to speed on how to submit his build of CWM to koush so it can be officially built and merged into RM. SO hopefully once he gets that done koush will get it done in a reasonable time frame.
And in most cases CWM has to be officially built to have full RM support. I have seen unofficial builds work fully, but they had to be installed with RM, but I have found most ppl cant follow the instructions on how to install it with RM.
