I heard that if you brick your phone while jailbreaking it you can restore it back to its original settings because its a flash drive not a hard drive is this possible?

I don't think your entirely correct.

A bricked iPhone, is one which doesn't work properly. For instance it magically turns into a fancy ipod because you've screwed the phone part up.

9 times out 10 you can reverse whatever you've done to your phone. But there are rare occasions where Jailbreaking can go wrong and render your device unusable.

Nowadays it's very easy and quite safe to do. Just make sure you follow all instructions carefuly and take your time.

Yes, you can restore it and fix it.
