    It's more or less your actions that will brick your phone... IE: if you unplug it while it's between operating software's, if you unplug it when it says not too, if you pull the battery thinking it froze when in reality it's doing some loading. Downloading incorrect files, unzipping files not meant to be unzipped, placing files in in correct folders, or removing or tampering with important files... Just to name a couple. If your already rooted then you should be fine.

    One reason if we can get an SDK soon we wouldn't have to worry about building an igloo with our Transforms.

    Don't get discouraged, take your time do the research and learn by just doing it step by step, it's not all as complicated as it sounds...usually.
