I want to root my Xperia SP C502.
I was wondering what if I bricked my device? Is there way to unbrick it? Can it be repaired? Is rooting worth its risk or I should forget the idea?

There are two different cases of bricking your phone.
1- Soft brick: In this case, phone is not functional as it is supposed to be however it is possible to fix the phone which is usually done through custom recoveries.
2- Hard brick: In this case of bricking, saving phone programatically is beyond possibility and a change in hardware is necessary.
Is rooting worth it? It is pretty opinion-based. For some, rooting is what makes Android awesome. And to some, the best way to use it, is the way manufacturers wants it to be used.
