    With the new unrevoked3 root method out a novice such as myself has been more attracted to rooting than ever. But the thought and fear of bricking my phone still looms. I seek advice and simple tips from those better informed on things to do/not do that can help avoid bricking a phone during or after the root process.

    Much obliged!

    doesn't bricking mean destroying beyond all repair? Ie essentially making your phone nothing but a shiny brick. My understanding is anything short of installing an incompatable radio can be reversed with a factory reset.
