    Some devices are easier to unbrick than others, while some are impossible. What device do you have?

    Ah, um - yes it should be something that's in your mind and you're cautious to avoid, because a hard brick is terrible - but if you're following an established procedure and being careful, the risk of a hard brick is pretty low. Soft bricks are usually recoverable, but if it's a big concern I'd strongly recommend using Nexus devices where you can always flash back to a stock image.
