    I'm well aware of brickage dangers whilst flashing but is the nandroid backup feature dangerous? I wouldn't have thought so as it is just copying everything to the SD card and no settings are being changed?

    Just the opposite, it;s very healthy if you want to play of the safe side...

    There's always the chance that anything can brick your phone. Nandroid backup CAN brick your phone, but the odds are better that a meteorite will fall from the sky and smash your screen in while you're backing it up.
