Used wrong FW to update

I tried to jailbreak my PW3. Resetted it and downloaded factory image.

Unfortunately i downloaded the Factory Image for PW2 and put it on SD.

Now my PW3 refuses to start and is frozen on the Screen with the tree when it says to wait until it starts.

No Bootloop, its just stucked.

Is it bricked now?????

How long have you waited?
Wait longer.
Keep it on a wall charger while waiting.
Wait at least 6 hours with it on a wall charger the entire time.

You probably want to read about installing and using the serial port while waiting.
