I wish I knew, but thats exactly what happened, maybe the process fried something while it was updating I don't know. But I'm not happy about it, more troublesome is the loss of color accuracy.
Edit I have the Spears and Munsil Blu Ray and now I can not meet the benchmarks I had it set for before, the accuracy is gone. I can not get the contrast or color set to the standard anymore, I got tired of trying after many hours the last few days. It's ok but not what it was, I had it perfect before this and now can't get it, its twitchy and the red push is there no matter how much I tweak settings. Sony puts out buggy code that is supposed to only do certain things but does many others that were not intended and they never admit it. I have seen it multi times on PS3. They really don't care very much anymore, this is the same firmware people were having trouble with for the XBR 9 series.
