1. What is Bricking

Bricking is a state where your Android device can’t turn on or boot up normally. The device can be stuck in the boot loop, vendor logo, black or white screen of death, or won’t turn on anyway.

Bricked Types

There are two types of bricking: soft bricking and hard bricking.

It is easier to recover soft bricked phone or tablet, because the device can boot just not completely and hangs at the welcome logo.

In contrast to that, hard bricking is considered completely dead and gone as the device refuses to power on entirely.
