    Well I bricked my first G1 the other day. It happened shortly after I had installed the Nexus one ROM. I really wanted to see the cool boot screen and did, but as expected the ROM was super-slow. Long story short I made a big mistake with the SPL and now I have a brick. I did however do some creative whining to T-Mo, and my replacement is on the way. Anyway,its been a bummer of week with out my phone and since my wife is stoked my phone broke and I have some time to pay attention to her, I figured I would jump in the lounge for a little sympathy.

    Sorry that sucks. I bricked my first windows mobile phone 3 years ago, it sucked real bad. I did not flash for about a year afterwards. With time you will heal and return to rooting.

    Sorry to hear that man :( This is why I haven't yet made the leap and tried to root and play with my Droid. It's just working so well and I don't think the risk is worth the few neat things I would be able to do.

    Well thanks for all the support guys. I did receive my new G1 the other day and had her rooted and running cyanogen in about 15 minutes (at work none the less) I thought about keeping her stock but I have been rooted for so long a stock phone would almost be as bad as not having one at all.
