    I own a Galaxy S4 and was thinking about rooting it and will be leaving my micro sd card out in the process just to be safe.
    But if for some reason my device crashes or bricks unexpectedly could it fry my sd card and cause me to lose all data?

    I've had this happen with my pc and an external hard drive when I had to reinstall windows and it corrupted the external hard drive
    and I lost everything on it.

    Any info would be appreciated, thanks.

    Unlikely. However, just back up your card to your computer.

    No that would not happen, flashing custom firmware only touches your system and recovery partitions on your internal storage. Unless you explicitly give the command to wipe the SD during the process your card will be fine, and untouched in the event of a brick (which is highly unlikely, as we've advanced past caveman days in rooting techniques )
