Spark Mini Pearl - a beautiful paperweight

I received my Spark Mini Pearl yesterday, stuck a quick unboxing on instagram, as you do when you're showing off, strummed a couple of chords, then tried connecting to the app to do a little demo vid...
"Update me!" it cried. So I did.
Then it kicked me in the nethers for showing off with the insta thing, and bricked. Four flashing LEDs. Further attempts at an update or trying a factory recent result in the same: what I guess should be called the 'four flashing lights of doom'. Nothing else, at all, just four flashing lights. Any Spark 40 owners who experienced the five flashing lights of doom will probably feel my pain.
I opened a ticket, and of course was told to do exactly what I'd told them I'd already done. Like some total sheep, I tried it again, because I like the feeling of nudging insanity by repeating the same things and expecting a different outcome.
I didn't get a different outcome, of course. My new Spark Mini Pearl is still a brick. Huzzah!
Anyone else out there sharing this ride? Maybe we could hold hands and sing kumbaya until PG whip out some .bat files or a new update?
