But I do wonder, are they bricked in the sense that you cannot even
get into download mode or whatever its called? I thought I had mine
(Samsung Galaxy S) bricked some time ago, but as it turns out as long
as said phone was able to enter download mode I could use heimdall and
flash new firmwares onto it until it worked again - magically.
I tried about 10 firmwares or so until it worked again. Then I put a
new bootloader on and, finally, installed Cyanogen. But during that
time, I could have sworn I bricked it, except, well, I hadn't. :-)
Maybe this little story proves insightful.
