Hey, sorry to be anal about this but I just wanted to discuss out the definition of "bricked" because I see the term used incorrectly over and over and over.
What bricked really means is that your phone is a brick. So in other words:
Things a brick can't do:
receive user input
Things a brick can do:
Hold down paper
prop door open
be thown through a window
It means your phone has the same fuctionality as a brick. If you can get into the recovery mode you are not bricked.
I have never heard of ANYONE ever bricking an Android phone.
Have a nice day.
