A6000 Firmware Upgrade to V2 Firmware Created a BRICK!

Well I always said Sony's approach to firmware upgrades was weak and problematic.

I just tried to upgrade my firmware from 1.2 to 2.0 and got 90% the process when it aborted and now I'm the proud owner of an brick. I removed the battery as suggested but once I place it back in I get NOTHING except a RED LED on the bottom lights up no matter if the camera is ON or OFF.

Is there anything to do?

If I need to send it to Sony I probably will cancel my pre-order for the A7RII and sell all my Sony gear because this is just not acceptable.

Had problems with previous firmware upgrades on my A7, A7R, and A7RII but was able to recover after an aborted upgrade but I don't know how to solve this problem.

Any ideas?
