These steps can/cannot reduce the possibility of bricking your phone in flashing Custom Rom

Requirements:
CWM recovery
Common Sense

(if you have permanent cwm you dont need to download another just skip steps 1 and 2)


1. Go to recovery mode by pressing volume up + home button + power button (simultaneously)

Re: [Steps][CWM] No Brick

If the rom has getprop in updater script, then it'll not flash on empty partition.

Guys,
I think I know one more method...
First check whether the zip file contains any boot.img ...
If yes, then extract zip and copy that boot image to root of SD card ..
Then compress all files in zip...
Then flash rom zip and then flash boot.img .......
I think this method is also fine.....to flash rom without brick ......
