    can you flash this before you actually root your phone so you dont get bricked?

    and what are the ways to get a REAL brick? because i've tried looking and everyone has gotten either a usb brick or something else where they can just reflash or something. any help would be very much appreciated!

    Flashing recovery is the risky bit that's most likely to cause trouble. Technically you don't need to be rooted because root is in android and recovery is nothing to do with that.

    I don't know any way of doing that though. Using the unrevoked root method, it flashes recovery at the same time.

    A true brick is very.rare. I haven't heard of anyone rioting their desire who hasn't been able to recover it in someway or other

    unrevoked unlocks the nand via an adb exploit which then allows the recovery to be flashed.

    that nand unlock isnt known by many, i think they only shared it with alpharev for the s-off. it should stay that way or itll get fixed
