For me "bricked" in addition to "unusable" means: there is no software
way any more to change the fault because the hardware does not boot up
into a state where it could read(...) any attempts to change somethinb. The
device is now "dark" and does not communicate anymore by no means.
Only a hardware change (for example replace some chip) would help.
