    Re: What is the meaning of Bricked Phone in Android mobile system?

    Greetings Friend,

    Simple Definition :-

    Altering the operating system of your phone in a way that causes the mobile device to become unusable results in a bricked, or inoperable phone. Bricking of phone can be done by a Hacker and via one or more update.


    Unbricking :- Phones that are bricked are able to be restored, also known as "unbricking", with the help of third-party tools or software programs.


    Have a Nice day !!

    Hello Friend,


    Bricking a phone basically refers to the practice of altering the operating system of mobile(Android/iOS) in such a manner that it would render the mobile device unusable (i.e. unresponsive to input via touch screen or physical buttons).With refernce to your Android when you root your phone to flash a custom ROM or upgrade OS of your Android device, it can make your phone unresponsive and this is called bricking you Android phone.


    In order to fix your bricked phone you'll need to factory reset your phone and wipe your data from SD card and cache.


    Hope It Helps!


    Thanks and visit again.

    Hello friend

    I think you know what rooting means.If you don't let me tell you , it is the process by which you get the rights of super user access means now you can change your system files even ROM too.

    Bricked Phone means that in the process of rooting or after rooting, you did something wrong and now you can't use your phone at all.Reason is : Rooting royally screwed your phone's OS.

    But don't worry its possible to recover after some efforts.And Brink happens only in one in a million times.

    Hopefully it will help you!!!
    Thanks for visiting us..

    Brick describe a device that can not function in any capacity.This usage derives from the fact that some electronic devices (and their detachable power supplies) are vaguely brick-shaped, and so those that do not function are useful only as actual bricks. The term can also be used as a verb.Bricking a device is usually an unwanted consequence of an attempt to update the device. Many devices have an update procedure that must not be interrupted. if interrupted by a power failure, user intervention, or any other reason the existing firmware may be partially overwritten and unusable. The risk of corruption can be minimized by taking all possible precautions against interruption.Any device with rewritable firmware or certain crucial setting stored into flash memory can be bricked.

    Re: What is the meaning of Bricked Phone in Android mobile system?

    When you try to alter the OS of your android device means to update it via rooting or installing custom roms, there is the chances that you can brick your phone. Now what is BRICK? To understand it let's see what a brick phone cannot do.
    A brick phone will not be able to
    - boot.
    - display any information.
    - boot into recovery mode.

    In short a brick phone is very similar to brick that we use to build house.
    A brick phone is a dead phone which cannot perform any task.
