    Getting closer to the edge...

    So I took a baby step and rooted my phone. I am interested in flashing my first ROM but have a few questions.

    If I flash a ROM onto my Bionic and VZW releases an update, do I have to re-install the stock software or can I just leave it flashed with the new ROM?

    Where is a good source to read about flashing a ROM before I do it for the first time?

    Are there any situations where I brick a phone and totally cannot recover from it? Where can I read about that?

    Sorry for the newbie questions but I want to be sure before I take the first step.

    I am looking into Eclipse and Th3ory. Not because I have extensive experience with either but because more experienced people seem to be excited about them.

    Also, grab the 902 xml for your PC just in case something gets messed up. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1417116
    This would wipe data, but there r ways to prevent if interested.
    Also, when you flash a ROM, you will basically set up your phone like it was just purchased.
