what do you mean, you actually had to replace a physical piece because of a brick??? never heard of that happening before
Yeah if u hard brick it, the phone doesnt do anything.. Not even charge or flash a light.. Its just completely dead.. You could get it unbricked if ur living in USA or UK and few other countries using JTag method but in ireland they dont have the tools to do it, not even the samsung repair shop, so i had to buy a new motherboard.. Thats why im very scared to do this..

you can also get a usb jig off ebay for about $5, just plug it into the port and it boots into odin mode.
