Kobo Mini stuck on Factory Reset

I have had two "error communicating with device" from Calibre today while trying to connect my Mini, so I decided to do a Factory Reset to clean the drive (I think an epub might have been corrupt, but I don't know which one).

Now, the Mini is stuck on the "Restoring" message with the hourglass and has been so for the last 10 minutes.

Anyone has an idea how to bring it back to life ?

Answering myself: 30 minutes was the time I needed to wait.

It is a tad long for a Factory Reset imho, but I am a happy camper. Just wrote this because I think people should know it can indeed take that long for the Resetting and one should just be patient.

EDIT : Still getting the "error communicating with device", with no books on it. Will do another Factory Reset and hope it will clear everything.

EDIT2: one Factory Reset later, it seems to work again. The Factory Reset was much quicker this time. My FW is still 2.6.1, as it was before my Mini started acting weird.
