I understand that fear. We all take that chance when we root. If I were you, I'd see if there someone I could pay to do it for me so if they screw it up, they replace it. But, the two biggest benefits to rooting, IMO, is full system backups and the ability to debloat. Check the dev forum if you haven't lately. I think there is a definitive method now, however, I don't know if it involves a definite brick. There is a down grading option, too.

Every month, even with a 23% discount for EMS, my phone bill is going higher and higher, pushing $100 with every month that passes..
They originally said 2012-Q1 and yet here we are approaching June and all we have is a ICS leak for a prepaid carrier getting the update first when they didn't even get the phone first..
If that doesn't prove Sprint has no loyalty to customers, I don't know what does.
Their 3G hardly ever works. They call it the Now Network, and yet we wait til Later for pages, data to load. The Later Network.
The 4G? Sad excuse for a 4G network. You get a connection every few blocks at most.
Customer service? Just last month, I called to complain about 3G data service/connectivity and the rep seriously tells me, "you live in what we call a 4G area, so your 3G isn't going to work as good. You have to keep your 4G on in order to access optimal connectivity." Of course, he didn't say it as nicely.. it was more along the lines of "Yeah, oh well, we don't care about your battery life, we don't care about your customer experience with our ancient 3G network, use this experimental 4G network since our original network didn't provide the service it should have provided from the beginning." ..
I had no issues with AT&T before. None. pricing was expensive but you know what, I'd rather the extra 20 n change a month for a reliable network and customer service than cheaper service and ****ty service.. I guess you get what you pay for huh... Sprint should just call it quits, go under Boost completely and get rid of their postpaid division. At least IMHO.. Sorry. lol.
stupid experience and sorry to hear it. I had a Horrible experience has you have described, but the company was the one you say you had no problem. T be honest, none of the companies look out for their customers. AT&T made guarantees to me more than once and then their guarantee turned out to be a lie and there best excuse was "oh we'll, live with it."
I fully admit Sprint borked my bill, but, ever since, it's been straight and I'm fortunate to live in an area where I get steady 3G, however, spotty 4G.
