    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?

    Yeah you have to screw things up pretty bad to brick your Droid....if you have SPRecovery installed. And the good thing is, Sholes app will install SPRECOVERY for you....so your good

    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.. :icon_ banana:

    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

    Percentage wise? Probably about a 5% chance with sprecovery installed

    sprecovery is just a menu that allows you to make backups of your phones current system. And allows you to restore those backups...as well as let you mount various parts of your phone besides the sdcard, wipe your phones data and cache......
