    Impossible the phone won't react to anything if you have done that since it doesn't have a bootloader and can't boot up anything

    100% agree. Bricked means your phone is as useful as a brick. If you phone boots to any mode, it is recoverable and NOT bricked. You need to change your title.

    P.S. To add to that I have bricked 2 phones in my time, a G1 and a One S. Both were unrecoverable. When I powered them on NOTHING happened. No LED flashed, no screen response. ZERO, NOTHING. You did NOT brick your phone.

    Ok.. and I thought sideloading was already hardcore... what special tool are you using?.. I am not a noob in adb, and I can't wait to play with the OPO in beast mode.. (it should be arriving today).. glad to know this device is unbrickable.

    Well at least someone has the nerve to! I bought a fast boot cable so if anything happens to my devices They most likely should be recoverable.. dont have a opo so cant do anything...

    "Special mode", means it turned on, why can't you understand that.

    Bricked means the backlight won't turn on at all.

    You are correct. He is only soft bricking his phone. The only fix for a hard brick is jtag.

    So with all this debate going on, I would have to agree that it is just "soft brick" ... a hard bricked phone will not boot into any mode... my 2 cents..

    Let me rephrase that, a bricked phone will not be able to communicate in any form to any console or terminal.
