Firmware Upgrade Bricked my Kobo

I just tried to install the new firmware 1.4 and my Kobo will not respond at all now. All I have is the solid red light and blank screen. I tried to reset with a paperclip, but no dice. This whole firmware thing was bushleague at best. I am disgusted at this point with this piece of crap.
