I'm a little bit of a noob, so bear with me. What precisely is the main difference between a hard and soft brick. By that I mean: What are the defining causes of each; and what have you done that caused them?

+1 soft brick = recoverable without professional repair; hard brick = not recoverable, better hope you have a warranty/insurance

i hard bricked my first sgs 4g by unplugging the usb in the middle of a flash. that was no bueno. i thought it froze and instead of shutting down the computer first i just unplugged it like the tard i was. now i'm reading anything i can get my hands on before i flash.
