In recent months, there’s been a ton of users bricking their Epic 4G Touch due to faulty ICS kernels on leaked ICS ROMs. This caused a havoc among the Epic 4G Touch users including myself. I bricked my phone and it was not fun feeling as my Epic 4G Touch is the only phone I’ve ever bricked out of many 30 or so Android devices I have.
Well, there’s a way to avoid this EMMC bug brick, simply by flashing a safe kernel/recovery on your Epic 4G Touch before installing or restore ROMs when you are on an ICS ROM.
Simply, before you flash any ROM, just get in the habit of flashing a safe kernel/recovery via ODIN or ClockworkMod Recovery. After that, make sure to reboot into recovery (if you flashed using ClockworkMod Recovery), and install custom ROMs or restore ROMs as usual.
