    So about half an hour ago I checked my phone to see if I had any texts and saw this alert from Motorola notifying me about an update. I clicked OK, download and install and then went about my business. 5 minutes ago I tried to check the status and the screen had gone blank ... I thought it must have switched off so I tried to turn it on - nothing! Tried holding down the power button for an extended period of time - nothing! Looks like the update done bricked my Atrix!

    Any other suggestions besides taking it to an AT&T store next thing tomorrow morning?

    I swear it did nothing when I tried the battery pull method the first time around. But I said what the hell and gave it a try again a few minutes ago and this time it worked!! yay!

    Everything appears to be running normally as far as I can tell.

    Why do people feel the need to yell bricking before attempting to resolve the issue?

    lol. We all need a little Self Diagnosis. I wont say that wasnt possible because it has happened before with other people who have updated. But dont worry. We have the handy sbf. file if we ever run into that situation. We can flash back to the original factory ROM and redo it over again. It might seem like a pain, but its a learning process. Makes things easier for the next time if it was to happen again. You'll know what to do

    Can we get this thread renamed, since it's a completely false statement?

    Can I do either of these (delete or rename)? Or will the mods have to do that? Apologies again for the false alarm ... I panicked!!

    Well, 3 out of 4 of our Atrix phones updated without a hitch. My husband didn't read the "battery fully charged" note and just clicked the update button on a 10% battery. The update seized and is giving us a "failed to boot 2" message with added note "starting RSD mode". I used my battery at 90% [plus plugged in] to try to reboot his... but still just getting same message on the black opening screen [with the M red circle logo/dual core stamp].

    I've waited about an hour and put battery in and out twice to attempt reboot.

    Any suggestions?

    Because the update only works on stock 1.4.26 firmware (reportly a rooted 1.4.26 updates ok). But if you have a different ROM (such as Gingerblur) or 1.4.52 or 1.4.51 leaked images, then it won't work. You need to flash back to 1.4.26 before it upgrades to 1.4.57.
