After a day of fixing it, I just put it back together and took it back to the shop for replacement. Got home with the new one, first thing I did was pop open the unit and clone the sd card, then continued as I had the first time. Updated fine and everything went smoothly.
So, I'd just get it replaced. Terrible experience to have tho. A bit worrying that they are managing to break the factory restore stuff with an update.
Edit : If you arnt able to restore it, I can upload the image which you could use to restore from; but it's a last resort. I'm not doing that for fun.
