Question Any way to avoid secure element problem?

So, I decided to go ahead and root my phone like every other phone I've had, and of course ran into a "prepaid unavailable" error, which according to whoever Google support forwarded me to, will be fixed within a week or two.

But once I researched the error I see that some people are getting much worse errors and bricking their secure element.

My question is, how can I avoid this in the future if I ever want to install a new rom? I feel like I somehow dodged a bullet, but I have no idea how or where that bullet came from.

I just wish there was a sticky, or a note, or something like that as I had no idea these errors were happening to everyone until after the fact.... eh I guess I had to get screwed from rooting at some point... I just hope it's not too serious.

Thanks for any help
