BEWARE: E-PM1 1.1 Firmware Update Bricked My Camera!

Just applied the 1.1 firmware update and my camera will not turn on anymore. I went through the entire process with the camera connected to my MacBook Pro via the official USB cable and no hub. The software downloaded and installed the update. After the update completed a big NG flashed on the screen and the camera would no longer power on.

Called Olympus tech support and now I have to send it into the service center to have the firmware loaded there! I've updated the firmware in COUNTLESS devices at home and on the job and I've NEVER in my life bricked a device with a failed firmware update! This is unbelievably hokey and a huge disappointment!
