    Bricking?

    What are the odds of bricking or breaking your phone if you root your device?


    I was thinking about rooting my droid through the sholes update on the market?

    SPRecovery is a recovery image.....you know that screen that comes up if you start your Droid up while holding the x button with the power button? Well SPRecovery is a custom image of that recovery image

    i was worried too at first, im no expert but i've read numerous posts about people who think they have bricked there droid and everyone has ended up recovering it somehow, i havn't read of any completely bricking one yet so i'd say your pretty safe, but again im no expert..

    if we have none to date, then technically, the percentage is 0%. but the chances depend on what your doing. unless you're doing crazy stuff, your chances are very low
