Bricking it is a whole different thing, you could just easily flash the software in that case and no big deal, but I have heard of device hardware being damaged by it. LOS is currently not patched for it. There was a Nexmon app in the google play store but it was pulled. For the internal Adapter you need a patched Firmware along with Nexmon, and so far i see you must build this for your own. Nexmon from the store still wouldn't work anyway. There is instructions on github on how to do it with a Nexus or Rasperry Pi but I have no idea for pixel devices. If someone is unsure of what they are doing and installs it on the wrong chipset, it can be dangerous.
