Where is the bricking risk?

view story

http://forum.xda-developers.com – Hi all! I am thinking about rooting my Galaxy S II, but i am very in doubt! I want to know, why did/didn't you root? What made you decide to do it? Or what keeps you from doing it? Also, where is the dangerous part? I mean, what part of the rooting can risk bricking? Is it the root process itself, or flashing a custom rom or maybe something third? I am a little paranoid about this, but i would love to have the root access as i am customization freak! Thanks in advance /gammarik (HowTos)
