    Have fun.


    Don't you have a little brother/cousin or someone that might want it? Before you try to ruin it, I mean.

    I've tried, it is impossible. :p

    I've never tried unplugging during an RSD Lite flash though. And honestly, I don't think that would even do anything (BUT DON'T TRY IT AND THEN BLAME ME). I mean, it doesn't touch the bootloader so couldn't you just boot back into the bootloader and do another flash?

    Hehe, post #1337.

    I've seen a few posts on the intrawebs of people falsely assuming that different ROMs work on different phones, but even on the Droid I think it recovers. It's amazing that there's even a work around a failed RSD Lite flashing; you would think that would be the end all be all for a phone.

    I want to say I saw someone try to install a Nexus 1 ROM on a Droid a long time ago, but was just having "problems." Perhaps the easiest way to try to brick it would be to try to install the latest 2.3 Nexus 1 ROM. But this thing is a tank.

    With the exception of the battery door, that is. :p If you do manage to brick it, and have no use for it, please kindly send me your battery cover. :)

    Haha, I'd risk bricking my D1 to get rid of the train wreck that is Froyo. ;)
