what did your screen look like/what did your phone do during the first and second updates?
Mine did the following:
The first time, I got a downloading symbol like what we normally see when we download an app. It finished in a couple of minutes, if that.
It then said I had an update available for download (seemed like the same one). I accepted it, it warned me to do nothing with the phone until it was done.
This time, my screen went black except for a green sync symbol and a timeline/loading symbol. It went thru several half-boots with the screen going black multiple times.
It finally rebooted completely and I got a "update successfully applied" or something like that.
At what point did your phone brick up? How long did you wait before messing around (i.e. touch the controls/power button) on the phone?
