Windows Phone update expected soon to address bricking issue

For a handful of unlucky folks, the Windows Phone update is actually "bricking" their phone after Step 6 of the update. However, it's not universal as many Omnia users are updating fine--in fact, the errors almost seem random, with no clear pattern yet as to the cause.

Reportedly it's a firmware issue with Samsung, more accurately those with firmware versions JI9 and JJ4 are experiencing problems, while the JK1 firmware, according to ZDnet, are doing okay.

Apparently a battery pull will fix the bricking.

Of course my first thought was who doesn't try a battery pull when their phone freezes up...
