Basic question on roms


Recommended Posts

From my understanding the ROM I would flash through clockwork mod recovery is just the operating system including the kernel and all of the applications. I see it like the windows installation disk, but in android form, correct me if I'm wrong. How would a phone be hardbricked through a ROM if it's just the operating system? Wouldn't you need to have an unsuccessful change to the bootloader or recovery partion to hardbrick? Like if windows messes up, I can still fix it as long as the bios is fine and I have an installation disk. Maybe I'm totally wrong on this but I don't know.


I successfuly unlocked the bootloader today, it was pretty sketchy and I soft bricked a time or two (as expected) but it worked out. I'll probably just wait for my friend who excells at things like this to help me install CWM and CM7 on my atrix 4g.
