    Sorry, I just saw this, it got burried, its a good question though. It should be possible as long as they didn't ground out the FM receiver. Some manufacturers ground out the FM receiver (make it physically impossible to use without hardware modification), to increase the hits on there own internet radio applications. I can tell you that the snapdragon 801 chipset has a FM receiver in it, whether oneplus grounded it out or not, I don't know. I don't think they would though since there not sold through carriers, and it would not benefit them whatsoever, since there not getting paid from application developers, to promote "bloatware" like most US carriers who sell on contract with locked bootloaders.

    No, you cannot sell a device prerooted with Google services on it. It is not difficult to root though, and it will not void the warranty.
    Glad I could help. :)

    No, bricked means irreparable, usually when a phone is truly hard bricked it won't turn on or charge at all. It happens, its quite uncommon though. The most common thing is a bootloop, and this can be repaired by restoring a backup with your custom recovery. Even if your recovery is corrupted you can usually flash it back to life through fastboot.

    These things should not be taken lightly though, just make sure you know exactly what your doing, and why you doing it.

    A bootloop is when the device will turn on, but it hangs on the bootanimation, so you can't get to the operating system.

    To truly hard brick a phone you have to do something like flash a corrupted boot partition, fry your CPU by over clocking it, or flash a ROM designed for a different phone.
