Default [Q] Question about porting

If I try to port a rom and it doesn't works, will my device be soft bricked (can be recovered using CWM) or hard bricked?

i think most of the time it will be hard bricked.

"You must be,' said the Cat, 'or you wouldn't have come here."

it does not matter by the processor, they have to be really close devices, ike the T989 t-mobile galaxy s2 and the skyrocket at&t galaxy s2, do some research first.
