    Yeah I was trying to upgrade an old Dell sff to a 2600 and it fucking bricked.
    Could have sworn I had all the bios set but whatever. Dell is shit anyways.

    Was doing a fan replacement and after assembly my laptop couldn't even make it to POST. I'm guessing something shorted out at some point but fuck if I know how. RIP my Asus g14.

      I have an eeprom programmer but I still wasn’t able to fix some chinesium Carmela’s I bricked when I accidentally installed the wrong firmware version
      even replaced the spi chip

        Often, firmware files have a header with checksums and offset of the code to be flashed and the like, if you don't cut that stuff off with a hex editor then it just won't work.

          I took a pull from an identical camera and it still refused to work, but I haven’t really had a lot of time recently to dig into it

    I have bricked 2 LG CD-R drives back in the 2000s trying to update their firmware

    I triple checked everything and was extremely careful, I never found out what I did wrong. I think maybe they weren't legit LG drives

    My netgear router got bricked randomly from installing an official firmware update, but I was able to install openwrt and it works perfectly now. For some reason the netgear firmware won't work anymore even after multiple times re-flashing it.

      how on earth do you brick a case? it's a fucking metal box.

        Don't stop and think about cases having front panels with their own pcb controllers for USB RGB or other such stuff. Just pretend to be a retard.

    Yeah bricked an old Galaxy tablet by trying to install Cyanogen mod on it. Learned it is very important that the model must be exactly the same as in the supported list. Didn't lose much of value though. Kind of annoying though that phones and tablets can be bricked. It's really difficult to brick a laptop or desktop, you'd have to go out of your way to fuck up the firmware.

    Does having my laptop's motherboard fail after years of normal use count?

    Not exactly a computing device but when I was a kid and didn't know anything I fucked my NES.
    It wasn't reading the games even though the carts were good and the contact points were clean, so I went through youtube and gamefaqs and learned how to fix the pin connector in it. I actually did pretty good and followed the instructions correctly, but the problem was that I was using my dad's tools, and his screwdrivers had a strong magnetic core for construction/woodwork use.
    Sparked a bunch of shit and didn't realize that was a bad thing until after I put the NES back together and found it wouldn't even turn on.
