How can you brick a device without flashing new kernels? It's the only way for hard brick.

No my friend. Unfortunately it is not the only one. There are many ways to kill the device software. For example:
* Flash foreign bootloader, kernel, recovery, pit via Odin
* Flash foreign update.zip from different device via CWM or Mobile Odin - needs root :)
* Remove dev/block
et cetera...
