So, here's my story since I posted my failure!
Contacted SE via their online chat and they verified my phone was a brick and would have to return it to the Service Centre as the Update had failed.
Anyway, after reading a few threads across the internet, I tried to use the ‘repair’ function, but I had two problems. The phone was stuck in a repeating boot cycle, and I couldn’t physically turn it off and it kept starting up all the time! I managed to solve the above by using fast fingers! But when I did get it connected the Download Service kept telling me it couldn’t download anything!
Anyway, I walked away disappointed my phone was a brick and 10-14 days to repair! Went shopping came back and it was still rebooting itself over and over. Anyway I tried one more time with ‘repair’ and this time I got to the download % moving. May be earlier the actual SE download server was not giving me a connection?
Anyway, it then updated the s/w again, and I was crossing all my toes and fingers. It updated it told me to reboot (and this is where it all went wrong last time) – but to my shock it came back this time with the new 2.1!!!!!
So, not sure why the initial ‘update service’ failed to reboot it, but the ‘repair’ option fixed whatever went wrong, but after alot of messing about.
So, I’m updated!!!
