warning about 2.9.5 update install--false alarm

Note rereading the directions helped alot, but it did hang up in a strange place.

I pressed the download button to install 2.9.5. It got to the screen warning to either abort and back up files or continue. I aborted and backed up the files. Then I pressed the button again and started the download. Then I got to the screen where it says "software Upgrade in Progress..." on the top in white letters on black. below it it has the six steps that it has to go through. It has been stuck on one for 40 minutes now with a continuous green activity light.

I do not know if it is a problem, but it seems like one and I am very afraid I am the proud new owner of a brick for the near future.....

Just thought I would share this.

I got a similar problem. But once I had restarted my iLiad with hard reset button pressed on the back of the device, and removed all the memory cards, the upgrade process finally worked properly.

Sorry, for jumping in.

But did you read the notice before the upgrade process started pointing out this upgrade may take an hour to proceed?

yes, on reflection I should have read everything through. I just assumed it was a typical upgrade like all the ones before. When it looked frozen I thought I would email asap to maybe save others from bricking.
