Failed firmware upgrade

I received a Fuji HS 20 EXR in the mail today. Much happiness. There was a glitch, the camera would lockup and I would need to open the battery compartment to shutdown and restart. I downloaded firmware V 1.03 from Fuji and during the upgrade, the camera locked up. Leaving me with a fairly expensive paperweight.

Heap abuse on me for my camera choice. (I motorcycle tour and need to carry something compact and cheap enough to destroy if necessary) But, I didn't want to destroy it quite yet. The few shots I got today were impressive for a bridge camera, I like everything about it, except of course it's dead.

Any Ideas how to best get it resurrected?
