    It really depends on who's installing it, price of parts, time spent, where it's shipping to/from, ect. There's no fixed price on hardmod services.

    That shouldn't really be needed, but it won't hurt.

    If you bricked, then you need your NAND to do a proper restore. Although, an emuNAND should work as well, just makes things a little messier.

    If your bricked you jeed a valid backup. Emunand or sysnand, either way they are both the same thing..

    I think that's around how much a restore costs.

    If i did it myself , you can do it too. you have to solder 8 times . Anyway without a NAND backup you can't do nothing , try with recovery mode L+R+A+↑+Power , but you will go to 11.0.33.

    Before you take action, you should check if you really bricked or not. See plailect's troubleshooting section.
