May I ask which individual told you this? Such a comment seems rather unwarranted since there is no logical reason to conclude North American phones have a greater chance to brick.
As long as you follow the same procedure, everything should work out. For a North American user, since none of these firmwares are from a North American source, you will definitely need to take a few steps after reflashing, such as setting up your APN from your NA provider, since they will likely not be available in the firmware you flash over (use something like APN backup and restore for this).
