To be honest the bricked module stories are coming from people who were trying to update their software version with Progman or WinKFP. Coding is just changing parameters of a module to a limited set of options. If you try to change some to "active" instead of "aktiv" see what happens. It won't code as the value will not be accepted. If the laptop dies mid-coding then you can cause comms issues on the CAN bus but you can recover the situation by defaulting all parameters with NCS Expert, there is a procedure for this:

Some say you default a module by writing a blank FSW_PSW.MAN file to the module to default it but this is wrong, what happens is a "fail safe" kicks in (that I referred to earlier) & the parameters of the module are set to default.
