    Last night, I experienced my first true brick because I attempted to odin flash a 7zip tar file. After a night of undo stress (read: bricked $400 device), I tarred the boot.img I was attempting to flash from within a UNIX environment and now all is well. Do yourselves a favor and DO NOT use 7zip the create your .tar files.

    Happy modding!
