    Just a quick question: Is it true that the Droid 1 is "unbrickable"?

    Just about. But like our Princess said, preparation is the key. You can't Un- do something unless you know what you're doing.

    I have rooted my D1 multiple times, applied themes, roms, etc and never had a problem. Read the guides, ask questions, and you'll be good to go.

    If you want to brick it then the only way I know if is to yank the battery in the middle of an SBF flash to the phone....a pretty deliberate act. Always make changes with enough battery power.

    CJM offers sound advice too....know how to undo that which you are about to do. Always have a rollback plan.
